Disclosed is a method and system for remote billing and administration of networked printing machines, for example, Xerox Corporation Model DOCUT.ECWM machines. The networked availability of billing and administrative functions and information enable a remote authorized user to obtain, for example, account and billing information, and to perform system administration functions. The system and method possess many advantages including that report information can be directly imported into various user applications, such as word processors or spreadsheets for processing and reporting at a customer site.
