OCR (Optical Character Recognition) allows users to search and modify text in scanned documents. Having this feature means users can quickly search within documents without the need for trawling through paperwork to find what they need.

 

Create text searchable PDFs and editable documents when scanning, without needing to install a 3rd party scanning app! PaperCut MF can deliver and manage quick scan, OCR and delivery functionality within the one product.

 

If you’re running an on-premise solution you can test this feature in The Percolator.

Improve productivity with 19.0


On the theme of Digital transformation, 19.0 will come with some productivity-enhancing features:

Select accounts at the device

Select accounts at the device

Charge your preferred account at the device no matter which device you submit the ticket from. This means smartphone users can select their account right from their device – no need to roll out the desktop client to all laptops.

Issues users were having:

  • When printing from a mobile phone or tablet a user isn’t able to charge printing to clients
  • Admins have to roll out desktop clients on every PC/laptop to enable client billing

 

How have these issues been addressed in 19.0?

When using Mobility Print, users can now print and charge to an account or client in one process. Selecting accounts at the MFD will make life so much easier for mobile workforces and admins managing these environments.

This is a great addition for those with a highly mobile workforce, as it allows them to print and charge different accounts or clients within one easy-to-use workflow.

 

 

Benefits of charging accounts at the device


Resellers

Let new customers know about the benefits and flexibility of supporting an environment where people use a mix of devices and being able to charge back to their clients/departments

 

Customers

  • Decision makers – flexibility to use any device to get work done – including account selection
  • SysAdmins – account selection at the device will automatically be available for their users who use mobility print

End-users

  • Can select an account using any device (mobile or tablet)
  • Can easily select an account at the device at one go



Mobility print in DNS-less setups is on its way

That’s right… they’ve gone DNS-less so you can go in confidence knowing Mobility Print is perfect for all configurations – all while reducing your IT support load during installation.

Choose between mDNS for simple networks, DNS-SD for large networks with multi subnets and now, an option for networks where DNS config isn’t viable. Awesome.

They’ll be releasing it soon as part of their continual deployment, so stay tuned.

Fastek Consultancy have worked on many large scale PaperCut projects with Selectec over the last few years. The level of expertise and support from Selectec is of the highest standard. Fastek have been approached by a number of other software companies wanting to work with us on machine management projects and we have turned them all down, purely because of the strength of our relationship with Selectec
