This is a system for the transmission of office machinĂ³ metering information from a customer site to a central data processing location for storage, processing and customer billing. A key point is to have centralized customer counting registers, which are not part of the individual office machines, but which are located in a separate, free-standing device, which communicates with a number of copiers or other office machines used by that same customer.
