PaperCut MF for Brother

PaperCut MF

Brother MFD Embedded

PaperCut MF provides integration with Brother Multifunction Devices, enabling the tracking, charging and billing of printing and “off the glass” copying and scanning.

Create a secure document environment, encourage responsible print behavior and make users or departments accountable for their usage with PaperCut MF on Brother devices.

  • Monitoring and control of photocopying, printing & scanning
  • Support for USB printing
  • Enabling of quotas, charging and cost allocation
  • Bill and account by user, departments, cost-centers and projects (Shared Accounts)
  • Optional card authentication at the device via supported USB proximity (contactless) and magnetic stripe card readers
  • Releasing print jobs from a secure hold and release queue
  • Group-based device access and control, including color copying restrictions
  • End user authentication to major environments and directories with support for single sign-on

Consolidated reporting and management

Consolidated management and reporting in either summary or detailed formats are readily available at the click of a button for all copies and prints across your entire fleet. Reports can be scheduled and auto-emailed to selected staff based on pre-determined requirements. Report by:

  • Device (printers & copiers)
  • User
  • Shared account (client, department, faculty)
  • Location
  • Date and time / period
  • Environmental impact

For more information about reporting see the Print reporting overview in our Discover section.

Track and control copying and scanning

Charge and account by:

  • Page count and size
  • Color / grayscale
  • Simplex and duplex
  • Device
  • Applied rule
  • Date and time
  • Track scanning to email or to a file
  • Scanned page counts are reported in the PaperCut logs

Seamless experience

The Brother BSI embedded solution offers the same level of tracking functionality in copying as PaperCut does for printing. Each job may be allocated to a shared account that can represent a department, project or client.

PaperCut MF with Brother provides:

  • Users with the same account selection options they use for desktop printing
  • Shared account selection from a list or user entry
  • Managed access of accounts using Active Directory groups

Integrated authentication

PaperCut MF uses your existing single sign-on infrastructure allowing users to log in with the same username and password used elsewhere on the network. No need to remember and maintain multiple logins!

Paper MF integrates with existing single sign-on environments such as:

  • Microsoft Active Directory
  • Apple Open Directory
  • Novell eDirectory
  • Other LDAP, NIS or POSIX environments

For more information about shared account see the Account Based Tracking in the PaperCut MF manual.

Consistency

The Brother MFD solution is developed by the PaperCut Software development team. This means that the copier interface is consistent with the other PaperCut MF user interfaces. Users engage with a consistent and easy to understand device interface regardless of model.

PaperCut MF with Brother provides:

  • Users with the same account selection options they use for desktop printing
  • Shared account selection from a list or user entry
  • Managed access of accounts using Active Directory groups
