Dispatcher Phoenix Licenses

10 minute read Last updated on October 05, 2022

Dispatcher Phoenix is available for purchase in several different configurations, each targeting the needs of a particular user group.

Each purchase includes one active input with no limits on page volume processing. Maintenance packages must be purchased separately. ScanTrip and Release2Me+ contain a reduced number of workflow nodes but at significantly reduced prices.

Dispatcher Phoenix Base Nodes

The following sections list the nodes included in the Dispatcher Phoenix base license, grouped by node type.

Collection Nodes

Node Description
DP Mobile Collects files that have been submitted from a mobile device.
Dropbox In Collects files from a Dropbox folder.
FTP In Collects files from a monitored FTP server at regular intervals.
Input Folder Collects files from a directory or folder on your PC or network.
LPR In Collects print jobs from an LPR Client like the Windows Printer Queue.
MFP Panel Initiates workflows directly from a Konica Minolta MFP panel.
MFP User Box Collects files for processing from a User box on a KMBS MFP.
Web Capture Captures files that have been submitted from a device via a web browser.

Note: The Dispatcher Pro Port is not represented as an icon you can drag-drop onto the Workflow Builder work area. Instead, you can configure the Dispatcher Pro Port for use in other applications (such as Microsoft Word) as a direct print-to-file printer, which you can then use as an input into a Dispatcher Phoenix workflow.
