PaperCut Hive for HP OXPd journey

19 APRIL 2021

Log in with access code

How many times have you walked to a multifunction printer to release a job and left your swipe card on your desk? Not to worry, now you have a second option.

Card association

We're giving power to your users. The first time they release a job the printer will show a one-time prompt to associate their swipe card.

Copy, scan, and fax tracking

We are very excited about this one! We kicked this off on Friday 16th of April, and here's how it's going so far.


You've probably got a couple of questions on your mind right about now. We've done our best to answer the most common ones right here.

I currently use PaperCut MF. Can I run PaperCut Hive at the same time?

Yes. But you need to ensure at least one of your HP OXPd multifunction printer can be switched over to PaperCut Hive to help with testing. An MFD can't run PaperCut MF and PaperCut Hive at the same time. Maybe use the IT department's device?

What card readers do you support?

The PaperCut Hive embedded app for HP OXPd is fully compatible with all major card technologies, such as contactless proximity cards (HID, MIFARE, USB, etc.). It's the same as PaperCut MF in this regard.

Do I need a dedicated print server for this?

PaperCut Hive is a cloud-native product, and a dedicated Windows print server is not required (you can run this as a true serverless printing environment, and your documents remain local for maximum privacy and security). For set-up and security-related operations such as unlocking an MFP, local access is required. This local access is facilitated using PaperCut Hive’s Edge Mesh technology.

Can I set up the HP OXPd App myself?

Who is best to set it up is ideally discussed between you and your HP printer provider. The process is relatively straightforward as long as the right options are enabled on the multifunctional printer.
