6 print and IT forecasts for 2021

The Cannata Report recently posted an impressively detailed watchlist of 2021 trends and it got me thinking… What will I be keeping an eye on this year?

While we’re all keen to sweep the memory of 2020 under the rug, it’s pragmatic to acknowledge that its shadow is already looming over 2021.

How PaperCut reimagined the print server

The dream of cloud print management is to achieve a reliable, secure, and fast printing experience without any dedicated on-site infrastructure (beyond the printer of course).

But how do you print without a server?

Bringing cutting-edge IoT technology to the world of print, PaperCut Hive reimagines the local print server by creating an Edge Mesh.

From People Experience to Product – a job swap diary

In my day job as a People Experience Lead at PaperCut, I am fortunate to enjoy a great diversity of responsibilities and tasks.

Something I have never done before, though, is be a part of a product creation process. Since I work in a product company I figured the opportunity to do so was one I shouldn’t miss…

Moving toward a zero waste lifestyle

It can seem like not a day passes by without more bad news concerning the environment.

In the face of such huge reported problems, it’s easy to feel helpless and be discouraged. But there’s an effective approach that everyone can take to reduce their impact on the planet’s resources, and it involves working toward a zero-waste lifestyle.

PaperCut 2020 in review… really!

I know what you’re thinking: Who on Earth would dare write a review of 2020, this garbage excuse for a year?

That’s actually where I want to kick this off…

This year wasn’t all bad – I made a list of PaperCut’s achievements to prove it!

The 5 point print checklist to get your business set for 2021

In order for businesses to be print-ready for 2021, EMEA’s regional director Steve Holmes devised a 5-Point Print Checklist that public and private sector organisations of all sizes can follow.

The advice ensures you’re maximising your investment in print, while keeping your print costs and volumes low.

Expectation vs reality: how does PaperCut build stuff?

We’ve been engineering print management solutions for 20 years and counting.

Both our founders still work at the company. That startup energy is part of our lifeblood as a business.

What’s so special about the way we build stuff? I spoke to a handful of folks much brainier than I to find out the answer.

REPORT: The print security landscape

If you want to stay ahead of the game and be your workplace’s “security guru”, I heartily recommend taking a look at the newly published report from Quocirca “The Print Security Landscape, 2020”.

The report looks at the world’s print security landscape (ok, that seems obvious), based on interviews with over 500 IT professionals from around the planet.

How many trees has PaperCut saved?

PaperCut offers more than print management. We’re in the business of saving trees. We’ve been at it for 22 years now.

To date, over 112 million users in 186 countries are reducing their paper wastage with our software. Business is good.

How many trees have we actually saved? We happen to have data. Sort of… There’s quite a caveat on that front.

School district subtracts 2/3 of its printers by adding PaperCut MF

The Lubbock Independent School District’s 27,000 students and 3,500 staff do a lot of printing! And that printing was done on thousands of printers.

Something had to be done to manage the printers (and everything about them), and to find a replacement for the soon-to-be deprecated Google Cloud Print they were using.

Here’s what they did.
