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.

Adventures in software development ∓ world travel with PaperCut's second employee, Priyanka.
We have been using PaperCut for just over a year now and the savings we have seen with minimal rules and filters in effect are easily double the price of what we would normally spend on supplies in a year. Aside from the ability to generate reports and hold accountability, the custom scripting allows us to use PaperCut exactly how we need it to function in our organization which has quirks that you typically wouldn't see in the average educational institution.
The web printing makes it super easy for students to print from anywhere on campus and from their own mobile devices, along with the ability to easily charge students for printing costs outside of the classroom and re-cooperate some of the money spent on printing supplies.
Being on the edge, we do a lot of things before it's "stable" or done elsewhere. Papercuts' phenomenal support staff make this possible, without them we would not be doing the things we are doing. To be able to submit an issue, have a response within hours via e-mail and immediately over the phone, and then within a few days have the developers solve the issue and send you a re-compiled executable, is beyond any support I have ever worked with in my 15+ years of IT.
Not only has PaperCut allowed us to save money, it has genuinely made an aspect of the IT departments job exceedingly easy and less troublesome on a daily basis.
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.
