Print management solution designed to reduce printing waste

About PaperCut

PaperCut makes server-based and cloud-based print management software that offers solutions for businesses of all sizes to manage print security, cost control, and more. The software is built to work with all printer brands and platforms, and enables native printing from any device, including iOS, Android, and Chromebooks

PaperCut's Mobility Print solution allows users to print from their own devices, including mobile devices, without worrying about driver downloads. The correct drivers are deployed automatically to users based on their device and location. Secure release of print jobs protects documents by requiring users to verify their identity to release and collect print jobs, and digital signatures and username watermarks can be used to promote responsible document handling through document ownership.

PaperCut includes more than 75 built-in reports which provide users with insight into their organization's printing activity, and custom reports can also be created to answer specific queries. Activity dashboards also offer an at-a-glance view of important metrics. PaperCut allows administrators to set individual or team print quotas and limits to control printing funds, and policies can be implemented to remind users to print in grayscale or duplex.

We've been using PaperCut for just over a year, replacing our previous system, PCounter. After the initial setup, we haven't experienced many issues but when we have, their support has been great. From a support perspective it has enabled us to carefully track usage and issues, complete with automatically generated summary reports on a monthly basis.

Pros

Excellent reports
Huge amount of customisation
Support for multiple departments for users
Useful integration with multi-function devices

Cons

Despite having a detailed audit for print jobs, there is no way built in to re-send those jobs if they fail (we wrote our own).

We've realized no benefit from the product. We've only realized a tremendous loss on our investment and continue to do so.

Pros

The product stops working constantly. Since we have had this product the only thing consistent about it, is that it won't work and that we will lose money on lost counts of print/copy charges. The response for repair is slow and often is a temporary fix. I will never be able to recover the money lost on this product. I would absolutely advise a small business owner to avoid this product. There are no pros, only cons.

Cons

If the product worked as advertised that would be an improvement. When the product doesn't work, it also impedes one's ability to use the printers.

We were hoping to reduce the number of documents that we printing. This product was crucial in meeting those goals.

Pros

I truly like that this software makes you think twice about printing by displaying the total cost to print your request. Budgeting allows you to charge printing jobs to specific departments. The built in reminders that you can print double-sided or in black and white to save money are helpful as well.

Cons

There are few things that I can think of that I would change about the product. It occasionally freezes and needs to be reset or has issues opening when used via a VPN. These issues are minor and infrequent.

Does what it needs to but no fun to manage.

We know who printed what and can type that into an invoice for them.

We know who printed what and can type that into an invoice for them.

Pros

Users are in control of their own expenditure.
Works across printing and photocopying.
Linux, MacOS and Windows for server and users.

Cons

Doesn't catch USB dongle printing on Ricoh MFD.
Made by developers for developers, no thought is given to UX.
Lack of integrations and cloud service.
Google Cloud print integration stinks to set up and so hard to use you won't want to roll it out to users.
You have to be comfortable editing text files to take full advantage of features.
No integration with invoicing software indicates the company's focus is not on administration.
