The PaperCut "Web Tools" provides a familiar and secure web environment for you to perform day-to-day user administration from any machine on your network without the need to install any software.

The Web Tools are broken into two sections:

  • Administration Pages only accessible to authorized users who have access to view, edit and update users' details such as their account balance and restrictions.
  • User Tools to let users monitor their own usage in real-time and take control of their own print and internet usage, without having to contact the administrators. This means PaperCut almost manages itself, and means less work for network administrators.
