Nine Reasons we recommend PaperCut MF

CSP Systems Ltd recently announced our partnership with PaperCut MF, which provides a simple way to automatically monitor and manage copying and printing within your business. This print management software allows you to control costs, manage copiers, report usage and enforce responsible use, all bringing about a range of vital benefits to your organisation.

50,000 organisations worldwide already take advantage of this outstanding print management software and your business could too. Below we reveal nine reasons why PaperCut MF will prove advantageous to your business.

PaperCutMF logo1. Cut your waste and your carbon footprint

Have you ever been frustrated with the amount of paper staff can waste by accidentally printing more than they need or using full colour instead of black and white printing? PaperCut MF software encourages responsible printing by introducing quotas and print policies. This will reduce the amount of paper, toner and power you use. By cutting waste, you are reducing your own costs as well as your carbon emissions – an ever important factor for all businesses to proactively consider.

2. Print policies are implemented across your organisation

With PaperCut MF, printing requests are intercepted at the print server in order to control jobs according to policies that encourage or enforce good printing behaviour.

There are many possibilities: for example, you may choose to use display pop-ups to ask end users to confirm when they are only printing single sided rather than double sided or you may set find it useful to automatically delete print jobs with the incorrect paper sizes. Furthermore, you could route large jobs to you dedicated high-speed printer rather than wasting time and energy on a smaller printer. There are many options to increase the efficiency of your print and copy solutions.

3. Solve mobile and BYOD printing

With advancing technology many people bring their own device but it can often end up frustrating when trying to print directly from these devices. One remarkable PaperCut MF feature is that, no matter the operating system, users are able to print from whatever device at their disposal. This feature works regardless of location, file format or the brand of printer – there are simple solutions to overcome these obstacles. Furthermore, all solutions integrate into PaperCut’s standard print charging, accounting and quota process as outlined in the previous point.

4. Protect documents with Secure Print Release

One very useful element to PaperCut MF is that there is the ability to protect confidential documents and greatly reduce the volume of unclaimed printouts by ensuring users release print jobs at the point of printing. Secure Print Release requires user authentication before printing to ensure that only authorised users can print and collective sensitive documents.

A further feature called Find-Me printing results in users queuing print jobs to a virtual queue and then releasing them for a specific device to be printed. Again, this helps cut waste and unclaimed printouts.

5. Monitor and report on usage

Many of the businesses we have worked with have said that the ability to monitor and report on usage has been vital to them in reducing costs. This software allows for real-time monitoring and reports which address all areas of print, copy, fax and scan management. This reporting ranges from detailed page logs to summaries by user, department, device or environmental impact. Access reports from any web browsers or schedule them to be automatically generated and emailed. Reports can also be set up to use your own business header.
