A Global Print Driver for cross vendor printing

“Printing is the Achilles heel of computing. And no universal driver can be done…” and “The only way to “fix” this is to be part of the company at the start and fight for a standard for printers – same model, same driver, etc” Do these kinds of quotes sound familiar? You probably have heard these […]

V14.3: The importance of accessibility

Physical barriers to technology in the workplace can prevent people with a disability from being productive and working to their full potential. Imagine the difficulties in reading small text on a monitor screen if you are vision impaired, or using a touch screen on a photocopier from a wheelchair. It’s important for all of us […]

One for the sysadmins: PaperCut version 14.1

System Administrators work hard behind the scenes to make life easier. They maintain: network security and system integrity, manage cross-pollinated user groups and permissions, report on activity, and provide analytics to the organization to make strategic decisions easier… We get tired just thinking about it! It can be a tough and even thankless role in […]

For the 14th year in a row, we greet the new year with a fresh new version of PaperCut, chock-full of tools and features that help you control and manage your organization’s printing.

PaperCut Goes Google-y with Version 13.5

Over the last twenty years, there has been dramatic change in the Print Management landscape. From the early 1990’s when System Administrators sought out obscure drivers from FTP sites; to the 2000’s when Support Engineers fought to deploy print infrastructure via Active Directory; to today, Print Management has never been more complex. The challenge for Network […]

The changing nature of authentication (PaperCut V13.4)

Copiers with PaperCut installed have been using this technology for years with the combination of proximity card and pin. It’s taken a while, but now […]

You Think You’ve Got Problems… (PaperCut V13.3 Release)

As a Sys Admin you’ve probably wrestled with the complexities of managing multiple printers and devices. Imagine scaling what you do to thousands of devices across dozens of locations, all coordinated with a clowder of System Administrators just like yourself? (We had trouble finding a collective noun for System Administrators and just used the one for cats.) Complexity of […]

Edugeek Winners!

We have announced the winners of the Edugeek competition; a competition to come up with the most creative use of PaperCut’s print scripting. I have not seen a more comprehensive winner since the All Blacks won the 2011 Rugby World Cup. Much like the final, there were only two major players; one of them had to win. Jack […]

If it’s not broken, we can still make it better.

A key feature of PaperCut is the charging model applied to print usage, generally defined on a per page basis. This feature had its ten year birthday last October without much fanfare. When you think about how much PaperCut has changed in the last ten years, it’s fairly amazing that the Charging Model hasn’t been […]
