About this brew
As you’re reading this, the PaperCut Hive Lite Release app for Brother smart multifunction printers/MFPs is available publicly. This app for Brother will make secure print release accessible and affordable, and it's the perfect entry-level product for organizations just starting out with secure printing.
When the Lite Release app is installed in Hive, users enter a personal access code at the printer to see their print jobs and securely release them. Friendly reminders can be set up to help users reduce waste, with prompts such as recommending conversion to black and white, and duplex.

About the brewers (aka the Product Engineering Team)
These brewers enjoy building apps and eating dumplings. When they are not out eating dumplings, they are working hard, and having fun with IoT, Cloud Microservices, and SinglePage HTM apps. Cool huh!
