Let’s pop the hood. What’s inside PaperCut Hive?
It's built from the ground up with shift-left security
Cloud brings convenience. However, it may also raise questions about how your business documents transit through the internet. But don’t worry - your important print data actually never leaves your office.
How do we do this? By using some of the latest innovations from the IoT world, such as Edge Mesh technology. Leveraging the edge, we deliver speedy performance, privacy, and low latency.
Making real print management easier with the cloud
Enterprise-level print management has traditionally been complex to deploy. Cloud makes this easier. In the old world, there were many moving parts like security, BYOD, mobile printing, and MFP embedded software. By leveraging cloud technologies, PaperCut Hive brings all this into one centrally-managed product. It also frees you up from the costs of acquiring and maintaining on-premise print servers.
We developed a feature set appropriate for small to medium business. We're adding advanced add-ons and more functionalities every day to open up to larger enterprises, and niche markets.
Reimagining printing with MFD cloud-connected touchscreen software
PaperCut has always been known for choice. We support all print vendors, operating systems, and device types; from phones, laptops, and Chromebooks, through to even Linux servers.
PaperCut Hive is no exception here. We've worked hard to ensure we support the technology breadth we find in the real world, while keeping it secure and working in the cloud. We already have cloud-connected embedded MFD touchscreen software for almost all major printing brands, and we're continuously adding more.
JUL 2019 – PERFECTING THE BLEND
The PaperCut cloud native platform is released to the world
The first product off the new platform, PaperCut Pocket, was released to the world for real customers. PaperCut Hive is built on the same platform. PaperCut Pocket has helped us to mature the whole platform with real-life day to day printing.
A massive thank you to everyone who joined the initial beta stages, helped us round off the feature set and find all those hidden bugs.

JUL 2020 – POURING MILK
The PaperCut Hive beta is on test drive
While PaperCut Pocket is our cloud espresso, PaperCut Hive is our more robust double-shot skinny latte, and it’s currently going through degustation with our partners.
At the time PaperCut Pocket was pushed out to early customers, the team had already started building PaperCut Hive with our global partners.
We’ve been working closely with a number of printer manufacturers to bring cloud-connected, MFD touchscreen embedded software to the platform. We've completed this for most major printer brands and are now working with real customers who are using the software in real life.
Thanks to our partners who have helped us identify these early beta testers.
2020 – MAKE LATTE ART
May the cloud force be with you!
Making great software is about continuous effort… it does not stop with a beta release or any other release. We’ll always be working closely with our partner network to make PaperCut Hive and PaperCut MF an ideal choice for all cloud-ready organizations, no matter the industry.
The technology is also just half the story - great customer service and a well trained global partner network makes it whole.
