PaperCut MF provides integration with HP MFDs, enabling the tracking and billing of "off the glass" copying, faxing and scanning. The solution uses HP devices' built-in touch screen to provide a rich set of application features for walk-up copier, fax and scan usage, including:

  • End user authentication including integration with single sign-on environments such as Active Directory, Open Directory, eDirectory, LDAP and others
  • Optional proximity and swipe card authentication (via standard USB based readers)
  • Group-based access control to the device and color copying
  • Monitoring and control of photocopying and scans/faxes (quotas, charging, allocation and logging)
  • Allocation of usage to accounts/departments/cost-centers/projects
  • Releasing print jobs from a hold/release queue (secure printing)

Authentication

PaperCut is a single integrated solution where copier usage is managed together with network printing all in one system. Users have a single account and administrators have the same level of administration for all services.

Leverage your existing single sign-on infrastructure by allowing users to log in with the same username and password used elsewhere on the network. No need to remember and maintain multiple logins!

  • Integrate with:
    • Microsoft Active Directory
    • Apple Open Directory
    • Novell eDirectory
    • Other LDAP, NIS or POSIX environments
  • Optionally authenticate using swipe cards, proximity cards or ID numbers and optional PINs for extra security.

Device Access

Protect your valuable HP MFDs from usage by unauthorized staff or visitors or limit expensive color copying to selected members of your organization.

Group memberships in your user directory can serve as a basis for fine-grained access control.

Track & Control Copying

  • Charge different types of copying at different rates
  • All usage reported in the PaperCut logs
  • Optionally limit amount of copying users can perform

Track and Control Faxing & Scanning

  • Track scanning to e-mail or to a file
  • Track sending faxes
  • Simple per-page cost model or 2-tiered cost model for volume discounts
  • All usage reported in the PaperCut logs
  • Optionally limit amount of scanning/faxing users can perform
  • Filter job logs to display just copy, fax or scan jobs

Shared Accounts

The HP embedded solution offers the same level of tracking for copying as PaperCut does for printing. Jobs may be allocated to a shared accounts that represent departments, projects or clients.

  • Shared accounts are optional - some users can have a simplified interface while others get access to search and select accounts.
  • Shared account access is easily controlled using Active Directory/LDAP groups.
  • Real-time account and user level reporting.

If enabled, shared accounts can be accessed using a number of on-screen convenient methods:

  • Selection from list
  • Quick entry via code/PIN
  • Search by keyword

Users are configured once and are provided with a consistent experience for both network printing and off-the-glass MFP use.
