PaperCut is well-known for making print management a breeze for offices, schools, and techies across the globe.
In fact, over 61,000 organizations have empowered their SysAdmins to manage printers and multi-function devices with PaperCut MF or NG.
But did you know the company was started by two young developers back in 1998? Or that PaperCut has become so popular that its network reaches every major continent on Earth (we’re looking at you, Antarctica…).
Take a look at some other surprising facts about our favorite money-saving software.
1. Support never sleeps.
Need a little help? The PaperCut Support Network is revved up and at the ready. But did you know there are some pretty clutch resources to guide you through almost any question at virtually any moment? Sure you did. Just browse the 24/7 Knowledge Base to check out hundreds of articles updated daily. There’s always something there for admins, users, and you!
2. Culture makes a difference.
A good culture is at the heart of a great company. PaperCut’s “software culture” drives it far ahead of other copier control solutions who tend to get their start in the hardware space. What does that mean for you? Simplicity, transparency, and a customer-first experience.
3. Scale, scale, scale.
Simple license structure. Unlimited servers. No vendor lock-in. Rest easy knowing that as your business grows, PaperCut grows with you. Honestly, we’d like to see a site with a network too big to handle. There’s beauty in staying flexible. If you have a mixed fleet or a single brand of MFPs, or even if you decide to make the leap from Windows to Mac to Linux, you get to keep the same functionality.
4. We speak the same language.
Speaking of making the leap, it’s easy. PaperCut translates across more than operating systems. Nearly 30 languages are ready to use out of the box. Language is selected based on your browser preference or you can choose your language on the login interface. This flexibility is perfect for multilingual teams and multinational companies.

5. “Stop a print, save a panda.”
Itching to know how big your environmental footprint is? There’s a widget for that! PaperCut’s print tracking helps encourage responsible printing by sharing the environmental impact of every user’s activity. Take a look at one of three stats in the user web interface or admin interface:
- Trees, or the number of trees that were expended to make the paper.
- Carbon, or the CO2 equivalent in greenhouse gases released during the paper production.
- Energy, or the equivalent amount of energy required to run a 60W incandescent light bulb.
Fact: About 36 football fields’ worth of trees are lost every minute due to deforestation. That’s equivalent to an area the size of the state of South Carolina every year.
