What is PaperCut MF?
Today's multi-function devices (MFDs) and copiers are smarter. They have touch screens and the ability to run embedded software directly on the device itself. This new technology has allowed us to bring our popular print management software into the MFD space to track off-the-glass usage - copy, fax and scan. Just like PaperCut NG, PaperCut MF remains vendor agnostic, continuing to support all operating systems and as many MFP/copier vendors as possible.
A quick screenshot overview. Start here!
Implement secure print release and find-me (follow me) printing.
Track and control off-the-glass copy, fax and scan with embedded/on-board MFD software.
Recharge use balances using popular payment gateways and standalone hardware solutions.

Adventures in software development ∓ world travel with PaperCut's second employee, Priyanka.
We have a network for about 60 students. We replaced 2 printers in our student computer lab last year and spent hundreds of francs on consumables. We tried everything to recoup costs from an honor system deposit box to quarterly fees built into usage cost. None worked. Since installing Papercut, we have been able to recover ALL of our printing costs and build more accountability that has dramatically reduced wasted paper usage. And the printers don't get abused all the time!
I continue to be shocked at the usability and simplicity of Papercut. It has the ability to control so much, yet the program is so simple. The daily administration is almost non-existent. By using the Top-Up card feature, we sell prepaid cards in our snack bar and the students credit their accounts via the web interface themselves. It is truly an "auto-pilot" program.
Kudos for a product well designed! I highly recommend anyone to this program.
Traditionally copier control has been the domain of expensive and proprietary hardware based solutions such as copier coin boxes or external hardware copier control terminals. Over the years the ratio of print to copy has substantially shifts towards printing. It's become increasingly difficult to justify the cost of expensive hardware solutions to track and control off-the-glass copier use. This all changes with PaperCut MF!
PaperCut MF takes a software based philosophy to this space by building upon PaperCut's core print management and control software. Our software has been developed over ten years under an innovative release-often development philosophy and is in use in over 50,000 organizations across 100+ countries. It's 100% cross-platform supporting Windows, Mac, Linux and Novell on both the server and workstation. Through brand new embedded software support in MFD's and via selected hardware partners, we've been able to bring a software centric culture to this traditional copier control space. Some benefits of this approach include:
- Cost effective software based licensing.
- A system which is easy to self-manage, install and maintain.
- A focus on integration with existing network services.
- Rapid innovation through software update cycles.
