Top 10 Reasons to Use Papercut MF
PaperCut MF is the easy way to automatically monitor and manage copying and printing in your organization, giving you control over your costs and environmental impact. PaperCut MF checks print jobs on the print server and analyzes them, applying rules to enforce your print policies.
1. Cut Waste and Your Carbon Footprint

All solutions integrate into PaperCut’s standard print charging/ accounting/quota process.
4. Enable Find-Me/Secure Print Release
PaperCut MF protects confidential documents and slashes the volume of unclaimed printouts by ensuring users release print jobs at the point of printing. With Find-Me printing, users queue print jobs to a virtual queue, and then release them for printing on a specific device. Secure Print Release requires user authentication before printing, ensuring that only authorized users can print and collect sensitive documents. PaperCut MF can also be configured to require print approval, ensuring managers, teachers or SysAdmins authorize the printing of any job.
