OKI Print Job Accounting
OKI® Print Job Accounting software enables you to securely monitor your print fleet so you can charge back departments, bill back clients, and control the cost of colour prints.
See Exactly Who is Printing What
This optional application for OKI colour, mono and multifunction printers helps to give you a clear overview of of print activity by tracking the output of each individual user or department.
Assign cost values to documents including full colour and duplex (double sided) jobs to allow you to use information gathered to charge back departments or clients.
Easily capture full details surrounding:
- Colour Vs Black & White pages
- Number of printed pages
- Page size
- Media types
- Paper trays used
- Document name
- Total time spent by job/person/department
Perfect for Multi-Device Owners
Print Job Accounting is designed for use by small or large business alike with multiple print sources with support for up to 50 devices for the standard version or even 1,000 printers when you upgrade to the enterprise version.
Total Access Control
Keep control over your workgroup's print output by defining who can print and what gets printed. Restrict users to black & white printing or allow access to full colour HD prints.
Assign access levels by username, application, file name, PC/server name or website URL. All policies are password protected and added security is provided by restricting authentication through the system manager.

B401 Mono Printer wins PC Pro Recommended Award
"Supreme speed, combined with good print quality, makes this a cracking mono laser for sensible money."
Compared to the more petite mono laser printers on the market, Oki's chunky B401d looks like it means business, and it has the specifications to match. With a 30,000-page monthly duty cycle, it’s more than capable of surviving life in the busiest of small offices.
At the rear, the USB 2 port is joined by a parallel port (if you want Ethernet, buy the B401dn – it’s currently retailing for the same price), and there’s a basic two-line LCD panel on the unit’s top fascia.
The replaceable drum unit is a surprise at this price point, and the sizeable chassis conceals an internal 250-sheet paper tray, as well as a manual tray for printing on thicker card and envelopes.
The B401d is quick, even beating its claimed figures. We recorded an average of 31.6ppm across all our tests, 9% faster than the quoted rate of 29ppm. In automatic duplex mode, the B401d’s 16.7ppm almost keeps pace with some of its budget rivals in single-sided mode.
Long-term running costs are favourable, too. Thanks to toner cartridges that last 2,500 pages, and a print cost of only 2.2p per page, the savings soon mount up.
For print quality, the Oki delivers a cracking performance. There are no issues at all with text quality: characters are laid down with pinpoint accuracy. Images lack the bold, strong blacks of other printers we've tested, and there’s some banding, but the reward is detail. Contrast is the best of any laser unit here, with almost perfect greyscales, and the B401d’s prints are finely detailed. If quality is key, the Oki’s ProQ setting reduces banding significantly, but drops the speed to 16.7ppm.
The B401d is a fantastic all-round performer, delivering top-quality prints quickly and for sensible money. Prices have dropped substantially since our initial review (it originally retailed at £104), and with a reassuring three-year warranty included as standard, it’s an absolute steal.
