Forest Positive printing with PaperCut Grows

PaperCut has been reducing print waste for 20 years and counting, preventing 3.2 billion unnecessary pages from being printed, amounting to 386,391 trees saved. But reducing waste is just one part of the problem. We’re now solving the second half of the print equation: after reducing waste, how do we give back to the environment?

Our new sustainability printing program PaperCut Grows means workplaces can plant more trees than their printing uses, transforming print’s impact into a Forest Positive force for ecological renewal. PaperCut Grows empowers businesses to directly invest in the trees and forests of the world, as well as reduce waste.

PaperCut Grows is available in PaperCut MF 22.0, as well as in our flagship cloud-native solution, PaperCut Hive.

Compression options for scanning

We’ve added compression options for Document Processing, because scanning through PaperCut previously delivered larger file sizes than expected.

Administrators can now choose from three compression levels when configuring Scan Actions:

  • low - up to 50% reduction with visually identical document
  • medium - higher compression with some loss of fidelity
  • high - highest compression for drafts and long-term archive when images on the document aren’t particularly important

This is invaluable if you’re concerned about space when uploading or storing documents. These compression options are now available for PaperCut MF and PaperCut Hive.

At-device scanning improvements for Ricoh

We know your time is important, so for Ricoh SmartSDK v3.10 and above devices we've introduced parallel scan job processing! This will banish the ‘Processing’ message which previously stopped you from performing other functions until the device finished processing your scan.

Fax support for Ricoh

Scan to Fax support for Ricoh SmartSDK

Scan to Fax functionality is now available for Ricoh Smart SDK MFDs. Ricoh Scan to Fax functions include:

  • Send a secure fax from your Ricoh MFD through integrated fax partners including RightFax, XM Fax Cloud, XM Fax On-premises, Retarus, eGoldFax, and Concord
  • Select recipients from an address book (from an integrated fax partner)
  • Send your fax to multiple destinations (if a group is selected from the fax provider’s address book)

Administrators can also centrally restrict available fax recipients to either:

  • Fixed destination (none of the recipient details can be altered)
  • Manual fax (all details are customizable)
  • Hybrid destination (some of the recipients details can be altered)

Integrated Scanning for Kyocera 4.3" devices

Scan and workflow functionality available in Integrated Scanning is now supported on Kyocera models with the smaller 4.3” interface.I

Improved accessibility

Improved accessibility

PaperCut strongly believes we should all be able to bring our whole self to work or school, and accessibility requirements shouldn’t prevent any of us from being as great as we can be.

As part of our ongoing journey to meet Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.1 AA for end-user interfaces, this release contains a new End-user Web Interface with a responsive, accessible, and fresh UI. This new interface offers a better user experience for those with accessibility requirements.

We are continuing to make enhancements to the new End-user Web Interface with the aim of achieving full WCAG 2.1 AA compliance in a future release.
