The “meter” shows how many actual documents have been processed through the machine (one document = one click). Actual documents include anything that has been printed or copied (scans don’t count because the machine doesn’t actually produce these documents in hard-copy). So if you have to make 15 copies of an important document, that will result in 15 clicks showing up on the meter. Depending on the machine, the meter could also give you additional information, like black and white clicks compared to color clicks. Eagle Systems, Inc. depends on these meter reads to predict when a machine will need maintenance or supplies, whether or not the machine is being used effectively, and how to price the ongoing maintenance programs for our customers.
