PaperCut Print Scripting


PaperCut has a number of filters & restrictions built in to manage print behavior. However, sometimes an organisation will have a particular requirement for PaperCut that does not fall within the standard feature set. Using PaperCut’s advanced scripting interface is a powerful and flexible feature that can be used to define and fine-tune any printing policy.

Whilst there are many features that can be enabled by ticking check-boxes and changing options in the admin interface, we are experienced in creating custom scripts to introduce a whole new level of customization.
