PaperCut MF has just been awarded a summer 2012 “Pick Award” from the experts over at Buyers Lab. PaperCut MF picked up the award as an ” Outstanding Print Management Solution” it will sit nicely next to the 2011 award they also won.
The Pick awards are given out twice a year and are designed to give special recognition to the products that provided the most outstanding performances in BLI’s extensive evaluations. The review concentrates on the key attributes for a given solution’s target market and are evaluated against the competition.
“After putting PaperCut MF through its paces, there’s little doubt it’s among the best software platforms in this class on the market,” said BLI Associate Editor Carl Schell. “Not only does the solution have all the necessities for cost accounting, control and recovery needs, it also includes outstanding print management tools that can help organizations better understand their document output and reduce TCO—for a price that’s lower than many other competitive offerings.”
PaperCut MF blurs the lines between traditional job accounting/cost-recovery solutions into full-fledged print management for internal use within an organization. Naturally, it facilitates the tracking of (and charging for) print, copy, scan and fax jobs. The solution also includes features such as secure print release and “follow me” printing, as well as cost-saving features such as re-routing of files to lower-cost devices and the ability to enforce duplex printing or restrict output by application type. Compatible with most network operating systems, PaperCut MF offers an embedded application that can run on devices from HP, Konica Minolta, KYOCERA, Lexmark, Ricoh, Samsung, Sharp, Toshiba and Xerox (with other brands supported via an external terminal), making it a seamless fit with virtually all environments.
Administrators have a wealth of features at their disposal, too, including the ability to configure quotas by user or department. They can also establish rules—enforced duplexing, restrict output by application type, for instance—to create organization-wide print policies, and provide notifications to employees to keep them informed. All of these features can help companies not only track and recoup hardcopy costs, but proactively reduce them.
