There's a smarter way...















As a group we're proud of what we've achieved. Founded by two young software developers back in 1999, the youthful passion and start-up culture remains just as strong with us today. What drives us is very different to the corporate companies:

We have a purpose

It's not about profits and business metrics. It's about building strong long lasting relationships.

After 17 years we still have our first employees, first resellers, and first customers. Our success is not measured by a balance sheet, but instead by the impact we've had across 50 million end-users, 180 countries, and 50,000 organizations, ... and the trillions of pages we've saved.

Our secret

At PaperCut everyone is a trained coffee barista (so we've got that to fall back on if this software thing does not work out :-). Each day we stand around the espresso machine sharing ideas on how to be ...

Engineering Focused

Proudly driven by geeks, we develop great software.

Customer Driven

We don't follow. We let our customers drive us.

Nimble and Flexible

Our start-up way of thinking keeps us agile.

Quality Always

That last 10% gives a seamless customer experience.

Fuelled by Coffee

Our huge coffee consumption keeps us at the ready.

It all started with an overflowing recycle bin...

In the late 90's, our two co-founders Chris and Matt were university students, used to problem solving. It was a part time sys admin job at a local high school where Chris saw overflowing bins of printed paper - staff and students could print anything! Aha, the light bulb moment!

They set to work writing "a bit of code" to help the school monitor their printing and reduce waste, it soon spread like wildfire.
