API (C# and ASP.NET) for Sharp Multi-Function Copiers/Printers?

At my work we have several large (networked) Sharp Multi-Function Copiers spread out acrros mulitple floors throughout our building. I know that you can just type in the IP Address of each one into a web browser and then an ASP web interface comes up. You can view the status, number of prints, configurations, etc.

My question/issue is: I am required to pull stats and other info, etc. from these several times a week to provide to my boss for cost savings, etc. It's a pain to "login to" each one, one at a time. Is there some kind of API/ source code or way to create my own ASP.NET web app that will pull only the information I want/ need from all of the printers and display it on one web page at the same time? It should be possible, but not sure what classes, methods, etc. to use or where to start?
