Cut the cost of Printing using PaperCut's Print Management Software
Extend the print, capture, billing and charge capabilities of
PaperCut to a self serve environment where users may add value
to accounts using integrated hardware, enabling organizations of
any size to manage all copying, faxing, scanning and printing
produced across their entire multifunctional copier and printer

PaperCut's core purpose is to track all printing in a network environment. It keeps detailed print logs for all user
printing activity. This logging helps to understand printing at the level of interest, such as by user, printer,
group, department, office or shared account.
User Level Tracking
Users are able to view their own printing history via the user web interface and may also be presented as the summary of all users in a group, office or department.
Administrators can view the print history of each user
Track the types of jobs printed, e.g. grayscale, color
Filters make it easy to locate specific print jobs
Export data as HTML, PDF or CSV (MS Excel)
Printer Level Tracking
Tracking by printer helps to understand how much printers are used, by who and when. This assists decisions such as
purchasing a new printer or re-allocating existing printers to see more efficient usage.
Compare and analyze printer usage
Determine which printers are used most
See detailed logs for each printer
Visual charts help to understand utilization
Shared Account Tracking
Printing that is allocated to shared accounts, such as via the
client tool, can be tracked and charged separately. This allows setting and
tracking department budgets, among other uses.
