|20140320891||SYSTEMS AND METHODS FOR REALLOCATING IMAGE PROCESSING DEVICES - Systems and methods for reallocating image processing devices receive usage data of each of a plurality of distributed devices, determine respective current usage rates of each of the distributed devices based on the usage data, calculate respective anticipated print counts of each of the distributed devices expected at a first predetermined time from the current usage rates, determine that one of the distributed devices is a high-usage device based at least on the anticipated print counts, determine at least one high-usage device and at least one low-usage device to reallocate so that the anticipated print count of the each of the distributed devices stays within a predetermined range of a target print count, and indicate the at least one high-usage device and the at least one low-usage device to reallocate.||10-30-2014|
|20140320890||SYSTEM AND METHOD FOR RESETTING A COUNTER ASSOCIATED WITH A COMPONENT OF AN IMAGE PROCESSING DEVICE - Embodiments of the invention include receiving information indicating a component of an image processing device has been installed on the image processing device. Status information associated with the component is stored, the status information indicating the component has been installed on the image processing device. Information is received which indicates an operation performed on the image processing device is completed. In response to receiving the information indicating the operation performed on the image processing device is completed, the component is identified based on the status information. A counter associated with the component is identified and it is determined whether the counter has been reset. In response to determining that the counter has not been reset, an interface element is presented in a graphical user interface on a display of the image processing device, the interface element enabling a user to reset the counter by selecting the interface element.||10-30-2014|
|20140282941||REGISTRATION OF A SECURITY TOKEN - Methods, systems, and computer-readable media are provided. In some embodiments, a first computing system receives a credential from a browser on a second computing system, determines whether the credential is valid, generates a string of numeric characters, associates the string of numeric characters with the credential, and sends the string of numeric characters to the second computing system. Furthermore, in some embodiments, the first computing system receives an identifier that identifies a security token, determines whether the identifier matches an entry in a data store, prompts a user to input information via a user interface, receives a string of characters via the user interface, determines whether the string of characters received via the user interface matches the string of numeric characters, and performs a registration process such that the identifier is associated with a user account in the data store, the user account associated with the credential.||09-18-2014|
|20140245130||DEVICES, SYSTEMS, AND METHODS FOR COMMUNICATING WITH AN IMAGE-FORMING DEVICE - Systems, devices, and methods for communicating with an image-forming device obtain a web page from a web server at a browser, wherein the web page includes an iframe; render the web page on the browser; populate the iframe with information received from the image-forming-apparatus-communication application; send first information from the web page to the iframe; and send the first information from the iframe to the image-forming-apparatus-communication application.||08-28-2014|
|20140208410||SIMPLIFIED USER REGISTRATION - Methods, systems, and computer-readable media are provided. Some embodiments include receiving, at a computing device, a security token identifier and a request to access one or more resources of the computing device. The computing device obtains information that identifies one or more domains each having a trust relationship with the domain associated with the computing device. The computing device determines that an entry in a first data store associated with a first domain of the one or more domains matches the security token identifier. In response to the determining that an entry in the first data store matches the security token identifier, the computing device updates a local data store such that, in the local data store, the security token identifier is associated with first domain information that identifies the first domain. The computing device grants the requested access to one or more resources of the computing device.||07-24-2014|
|20130254848||SYSTEM AND METHOD FOR CONTROLLING ACCESS TO A RESOURCE - Methods, devices, and computer-readable storage media are provided. In some embodiments, a server receives from a browser on a client a request to access a first web page. In response to receiving the request, the server sends to the client a second web page including an embedded executable program configured to run within the browser on the client, wherein the embedded executable program, when executed on the client, is operable to obtain a ticket-granting ticket stored on the client and send the ticket-granting ticket to the server. The server receives the ticket-granting ticket from the embedded executable program on the client. Furthermore, the server determines whether a user associated with the ticket-granting ticket is authorized to access the first web page. In response to determining that the user is authorized to access the first web page, the server grants the requested access to the first web page.||09-26-2013|
