Easy scanning and capture

Digitize not photocopy β€” we're PaperCut after all! By making MFD scanning simple and easy to use, people embrace it. By enhancing it, we make it powerful.

PaperCut Easy Scanning & capture

PaperCut is well known for making super cool print management software right... so why scanning software?

Well, we were already providing embedded software in MFDs (when you walk up to your favorite MFD you see a PaperCut screen) that millions of customers use and love β€” and we knew that documents were screaming to be digitized as well as managed. So we put the brightest PaperCutters to work on creating a simple and effective scanning solution.

Just like our print management software, our scanning software works on all MFD makes and models β€” out of the box, with a consistent, super slick touch-screen interface. And we've designed it with features like one-click scanning actions so people spend less time at the printer/copier.

Leveling up your scanning

Scanning has always been a notorious 'security gap', so we make sure we secure the MFDs, the users, and the scans so you can make scanning part of your secure business processes. It doesn't matter if you're scanning invoices, contracts, resumes, payslips, prescriptions, or your kid's artwork, we have your security covered.

If fact the only thing we have yet to do is make scanning as exciting as the Playstation, but we are working on that. (We all have aspirations.)

Scan and capture 101

Today, documents beg to be digitized, and for good reason. By handling information digitally, you unlock faster, easier, and altogether better ways to store, access, and use information day to day.

It's why we've put our best foot forward in the scan and document capture game. Not only do PaperCut products work with major document workflow tools, they set the bar for how simple and secure scanning can be β€” from tap-and-go scans to the cloud, to end-to-end encryption over the network.

Here are some of the benefits of using PaperCut's scanning solution.
