The PaperCut ecosystem


This page describes the PaperCut ecosystem and details the level of support and services provided by each part of that model. All resellers within the PaperCut ecosystem have staff certified in the technical, marketing, and licensing aspects of selling and supporting PaperCut. These resellers also have access to continually updated marketing and technical resources from PaperCut Software.

Note: PaperCut MF and PaperCut Hive are sold, supported, and provided solely through our PaperCut Channel. All other PaperCut products can be sold, supported, and provided through the PaperCut Channel as well.
