PaperCut Software Solutions

PaperCut MF is a simple, low cost software application that lets you take control and manage your printers, copiers and multi-function devices.

Cut Waste and Your Carbon Footprint

Encourage responsible printing with PaperCut MF quotas and print policies, cutting paper and toner costs and power usage. At-a-glance reporting on CO2 and carbon emissions - by CO2 volume or by tree - shows the impact.

Apply Print Policies Enterprise-Wide

With PaperCut MF, printing requests are intercepted at the print server to control jobs according to policies that encourage or enforce good behavior. Use job filtering to advanced scripting (JavaScript) to implement policies and improve device utilization. For example you might route large jobs to dedicated high-speed printers, display popups to ask end users to confirm single sided output, automatically delete print jobs with incorrect paper sizes or suggest an alternative printer when a device is offline.

Offer Driverless Web Printing

Simplify printing with Web Print, a unique PaperCut MF feature that allows end users to print wirelessly from laptops and netbooks with no driver installation or server authentication. Web Print is fully integrated into PaperCut MF's standard print charging/accounting/quota process.

Enable Find-Me/Secure Print Release

PaperCut MF protects confidential documents and slashes the volume of unclaimed printouts by ensuring users release print jobs at the point of printing. With Find-Me printing, users queue print jobs to a virtual queue, and then release them for printing on a specific device. Secure Print Release requires user authentication before printing, ensuring that only authorized users can print and collect sensitive documents. PaperCut MF can also be configured to require print approval, ensuring managers, teachers or sys admins authorize the printing of any job.

Monitor and Report on Usage

Real-time monitoring and reports address all areas of print/copy/fax/ scan management, ranging from detailed page logs to summaries by user, department, device or environmental impact. PaperCut MF offers more than 50 reports out of the box, in PDF, HTML or Microsoft Excel (.csv) format. Access reports from any web browser, or schedule them to be automatically generated and emailed. You can set up reports to use your own header, and create reports with custom data by specifying date ranges, filtering and sorting by the data available.

Deploy Simply

An installation wizard installs server software and then proceeds to automatically detect printers and multi-function devices on your network. Create users and groups automatically from directory services including Active Directory, Open Directory, Novell eDirectory of LDAP, Install wizards help you define user access rights, page costs and quotas. Client software is optional and can be run directly off a server share avoiding the need to install/deploy locally. PaperCut MF integrates with printers and multi-function devices from major vendors.

Administer Centrally, Manage Easily

PaperCut MF provides browser-based administration access from any network location, providing advanced administration and configuration options in an intuative user interface. End users have access to a set of web tools to track their own activity in real-time, query their account balances, view transactions, and transfer credit to other users.

Integrate with Your Intranet and Other Systems

A customizable web interface ensures you can easily integrate with your intranet site, and a fully documented API and scripting interface let you integrate PaperCut MF with other IT systems.

Scale Up Effortlessly

Modern software design and architecture provides scalability for networks of all sizes, from five to 500,000 users. Regardless of the number of servers and end users on your network, PaperCut MF will meet your needs.

Maximize Uptime and Availability

PaperCut MF delivers a robust approach to maintaining service by clustering at the print spooler, application server and database (for cluster-aware databases), as well as automatic fail-over protection against single points of failure.
