Browser Based Admin

Hey, you’ve landed on a page that we’ve updated and made even better! Go see the new section on our website called Discover.

This Discover section provides you with everything you need to know and covers stories and practices on how our customers use our solutions to get the most out of their printing, scanning and copying environments.

All topics are covered in the new section, but we may have written a page or two before our morning coffee, so we’ve left these pages active just in case :-)

PaperCut's web-based application makes it easy for administrators to log in at any browser on any platform, removing the need to install additional software. Install from a direct download and enter your license without the need to configure your own web server. The web interface has easy-to-find tabs, effects, and transitions for a traditional desktop application user experience.
