Pros
We sell mostly to universities an this is a great advantage and helps so much. Maybe because it was also developed at University Melbourne.
It help reduce cost in printing, and helps ecological sustainability. It saves lots of paper, and its managment controller helps having control of the entire printing system.
Thanks to PaperCut, this has started to change. Its ability to show users the energy costs of their printing needs helps to instill more cognizant consumption.
Cons
The only problem I have encountered using this software is it can be delayed. The paper cut box doesn’t always pop up.
We've realized no benefit from the product. We've only realized a tremendous loss on our investment and continue to do so.
However, clicking the icon on the desktop often fixes the problem immediately.

Great product

Reviewed 5 years ago

We've been using PaperCut for just over a year, replacing our previous system, PCounter. After the initial setup, we haven't experienced many issues but when we have, their support has been great. From a support perspective it has enabled us to carefully track usage and issues, complete with automatically generated summary reports on a monthly basis.

Pros

Excellent reports Huge amount of customisation Support for multiple departments for users Useful integration with multi-function devices

Cons

Despite having a detailed audit for print jobs, there is no way built in to re-send those jobs if they fail (we wrote our own).

PaperCut The Beacon Of Innovation

Reviewed a month ago

PaperCut is the beacon of innovation and environmental stewardship.

Pros

From the get-go, PaperCut impresses with its simplicity in installation and operation. It’s a breeze to integrate into existing systems, and its compatibility with various devices and operating systems means it’s ready to work in diverse IT environments.

Cons

PaperCut for me, it is just fine and has no cons.

Do not purchase this product!

Reviewed 4 years ago

We've realized no benefit from the product. We've only realized a tremendous loss on our investment and continue to do so.

Pros

The product stops working constantly. Since we have had this product the only thing consistent about it, is that it won't work and that we will lose money on lost counts of print/copy charges. The response for repair is slow and often is a temporary fix. I will never be able to recover the money lost on this product. I would absolutely advise a small business owner to avoid this product. There are no pros, only cons.

Cons

If the product worked as advertised that would be an improvement. When the product doesn't work, it also impedes one's ability to use the printers.

Excellent Printing Management

Reviewed 5 years ago

We were hoping to reduce the number of documents that we printing. This product was crucial in meeting those goals.

Pros

I truly like that this software makes you think twice about printing by displaying the total cost to print your request. Budgeting allows you to charge printing jobs to specific departments. The built in reminders that you can print double-sided or in black and white to save money are helpful as well.

Cons

There are few things that I can think of that I would change about the product. It occasionally freezes and needs to be reset or has issues opening when used via a VPN. These issues are minor and infrequent.

Does what it needs to but no fun to manage.

Reviewed 6 years ago

We know who printed what and can type that into an invoice for them.

Pros

Users are in control of their own expenditure. Works across printing and photocopying. Linux, MacOS and Windows for server and users.

Cons

Doesn't catch USB dongle printing on Ricoh MFD. Made by developers for developers, no thought is given to UX. Lack of integrations and cloud service. Google Cloud print integration stinks to set up and so hard to use you won't want to roll it out to users. You have to be comfortable editing text files to take full advantage of features. No integration with invoicing software indicates the company's focus is not on administration.
