Why?

PaperCut MF is designed to track "off the glass" activity such as copies, scanning and faxing. These are more complex than simple print monitoring and the hardware that support these types of activity often include
:

* Screen display to present the user with a wide range of options and information with text and graphics
* Multiple input devices such as keyboards, touch screens and card scanners which often require sophisticated control by an application program
* Support for copying, scanning
, network sharing and faxing

'''Why?'''

PaperCut MF is designed to track "off the glass" activity such as copies, scanning and faxing. PaperCut MF is more complex PaperCut NG because it has copier/hardware integration such as
:

* Embedded software that runs at the copier firmware level.
* External card reader hardware integration
* Copier terminal hardware support (for MFD/MDPs that don't support embedded/onboard software)
* Other forms of hardware integration such as cash handling equipment.

By developing the more complex PaperCut MF application
, PaperCut Software is able to exploit these features to provide sophisticated workflows, follow me printing, flexible cost monitoring and many other features.
