We believe setting reasonable budgets or quotas and active monitoring is the key to controlling print usage across an organization.

Why PaperCut?

It is nearly impossible to manage the cost of printing on modern networks. Monitoring and control is the key to reducing your organization’s print costs and environmental impact. PaperCut is the solution selected by over 50,000 organizations in over 100 countries. As a modern, cross-platform solution designed for networks of all sizes, PaperCut is a rich feature, web based browser console for both users and administrators. Most importantly it is a cost-effective solution with a proven return on investment.

How it works

PaperCut works by intercepting printer usage at the server level, calculating the cost, and deducting it from a central account associated with a user, department, group or client account. Administrators can define quotas by scheduling credit allocation at defined intervals. In a pay for print environment users can add funds to accounts using a variety of online payment systems to implement a self-managing user-pays system.

Flexible Deployment

PaperCut is hardware vendor and operating system neutral. It works on all major printer brands and supports standards including PCL and Postscript. Unlike other solutions PaperCut is a full cross-platform system supporting all major operating systems including mixed environments. Would you like to host some printers on Windows and others on Apple, Linux or Novell OES?
