An Introduction to PaperCut

PaperCut is a powerful print management solution that allows your company to control costs, increase accountability, harden security, and ease management of all printers within your organization.

PaperCut allows users to track their printing, restricts printing based on certain parameters, and generates reports around print jobs and consumables (e.g., toner).

What does it do?

PaperCut gives you full control over your fleet of printers, letting you:

  • Manage and control printing using tracking, quotas, or pay-for print charging.
  • Transfer accountability to users or departments by individually tracking activity.
  • Support BYOD and mobile devices, allowing users to print from their own device.
  • Apply rule-based print policies to minimize waste and maximize productivity. e.g. to prevent the printing of emails, require large jobs to be duplexed, or restrict color printing.
  • Protect intellectual property and conform to audit objectives by enabling features such as print auditing, watermarking, and digital signatures.
  • Integrate with line of business software for direct cost recovery.

PaperCut supports virtually every major printer brand and can be embedded in most large workgroup printers. Even if you have a mix of printers, users will see a cohesive interface across all makes and models. It provides print, copy, scan, fax, and cloud services in a single, easy to use, interface:
