My understanding is with colour processors you stick exposed paper in one end and processed paper comes out the other. If you're just using the thing then that's about it. If it doesn't handle wash/dry then you'll have to do that. OTOH if it does wash/dry you'll get a processed,washed and dried print. I wish I had enough pennies for one of those-) Somebody will have to fill it with chemicals. Clean it. But I'm guessing you'll just be using the thing.

Do you each get an analyzer? Or will they be programmed by somebody before hand?
