PaperCut NG FAQs

All the things you want to know about PaperCut NG.

What does PaperCut NG do? What problems does PaperCut solve for me?

All good FAQs should start with a question that's best answered with a 500 page novel! The short answer is that PaperCut MF enables user and device level management and control for all your printers and multifunctional devices (i.e. MFDs - copy, print, fax and scan).

How does PaperCut NG differ from PaperCut MF?

Both PaperCut MF and NG are very similar in core features and, at a technical level, share the same code base. But PaperCut MF has the additional ability to integrate directly with Multifunction Devices (MFDs) and other hardware to deliver extra features. The embedded software available with PaperCut MF runs on the MFD and allows you to track and control printing, copying, faxing and scanning.

What platforms does PaperCut support?

Part of the power of PaperCut NG is the simplicity and ease of use for anyone who wants to control their printing costs and reduce waste. It's distributed online and can be installed and supported by any network administrator, with the main level of integration at the Operating System level.

As we integrate at the firmware level with dozens of MFD manufacturer platforms, the complexity of the solution has increased. Often the setup requires specialist expertise and an up-to-date knowledge of current MFD hardware. And, to support the MFD and printer manufacturers, PaperCut must also ensure a correct notification and acceptance procedure is followed before any device can be loaded with the PaperCut embedded software.

So, rather than have one solution that introduces that complexity to people who may not ever need it, we created PaperCut MF and a clear separation between the two products. To help make PaperCut MF as straightforward for customers as PaperCut NG, we have extended our network of reseller and support experts to ensure the best configuration and installation experience.

The two products are complementary, however, and many PaperCut MF customers have evolved their installation from PaperCut NG. Migration between editions is very easy and your data and settings are maintained in the upgrade.

Payment gateway related question

Many of our users first implement PaperCut NG, our print-only edition, as the first phase of their deployment. PaperCut MF's setup on the other hand is a bit more involved (see other FAQs for why). The process of converting an existing PaperCut NG install across to PaperCut MF can be summarized as follows:

Reporting related question

PaperCut is vendor agnostic/neutral which means that we endeavor to support as many operating systems, platforms and devices as possible. This position is part of our core development philosophy and ensures that you as the PaperCut user have choice. We surveyed our user base a few years back and the overwhelming voice was that our vendor neutral position is important. It means that you have the ability to change operating systems, printer brands, MFD makes, etc. with minimal impact on PaperCut and its core features i.e. your implementation can remain intact. This however is at times a difficult position for us. Aside from the engineering investment required to develop across multiple environments in parallel, we're also under pressure at times from organizations that would prefer "lock-in" to a particular environment or hardware/device. We've committed to remaining neutral and will continue to support an open approach to infrastructure, hardware and other services. Please note that a vendor neutral approach does not mean that all embedded offerings are created equal. We are reliant on the quality and feature-set of the underlying device (MFD) firmware and supporting SDK used to create our embedded software. In this regard some manufacturers can claim better integration and a fuller feature set, thereby setting their devices apart. In every case we strive to supply the very best user experience at the device.

How long does it take to get up and running?

Where possible we support the same set of languages the PaperCut admin web interface supports. (Over 30 languages so far…)There are however some caveats to this:

Always innovating

We’ve been releasing more and more cloud features in the last few years: Scan to Cloud Storage, cloud OCR, and PaperCut Views to name three

At PaperCut we don't just sit back and smell the coffee...we consume it in copious amounts, but there’s a good reason for it. We use this as our fuel to keep making better and better products with a vision to help our customers achieve their goals!

For over 20 years now we’ve been innovating and improving on functionality with our products, to create a leading print management solution used by over 60,000 customers across 93 countries.

Meet the team behind our success

In the late 90's, our two co-founders Chris and Matt were university students, used to problem solving. It was a part time sys admin job at a local high school where Chris saw overflowing bins of printed paper - staff and students could print anything! Aha, the light bulb moment!

They set to work writing "a bit of code" to help the school monitor their printing and reduce waste, it soon spread like wildfire.


Well done! You've got this far

Now let's go deep into the details...

It doesn’t matter what size you are, what printers you use, or what operating system your users prefer – PaperCut NG is for you.
