PaperCut MF provides integration with OKI Open Platform MFDs and selected OKI A4 workgroup MFPs, enabling the tracking, charging or billing of "off the glass" copying, faxing and scanning. PaperCut MF's embedded Open Platform solution uses the OKI devices' built-in touchscreen to provide a rich set of application features for walk-up copier, fax and scan usage, including:

  • End user authentication including integration with major industry leading environments.
  • Optional proximity card swipe authentication (via standard USB based card readers)
  • Group-based access control to the device and color copying
  • Monitoring and control of photocopying and scan/fax (quotas, charging, allocation and logging)
  • Allocation of usage to accounts/departments/cost-centers/projects
  • Secure Printing (releasing print jobs from the device)


PaperCut MF provides centralized management of all users, copiers and printers via a simple web based Administration console, where copier usage and network printing is managed together.

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 or proximity cards, user ID numbers and optional PINs for extra security.
  • Display instructions and your organization's own custom logo on the login screen.

Device Access

Protect and limit access to your valuable OKI Open Platform MFDs from unauthorized staff and visitors or restrict color copying to selected members of your organization.

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

Real-Time Tracking

PaperCut MF tracks copying page-by-page and reports usage for up to the minute reporting. Page and job attributes including color/grayscale, page sizes, duplex logged by user, device and date/time are standard features.

Using PaperCut MF to identify, track and log all activity enables accurate, consolidated reporting of costs and usage across your whole copier and printer fleet.

Users' copier usage, just like printing, can be controlled by

  • a user allocated quota or budget,
  • shared account budgets,
  • user-pays environment, where funds are debited based on job cost.

The device will deny copying in excess of quota or account balance.

Track & Control Scanning & Faxing

  • Track scanning to e-mail
  • 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, scan/fax jobs

Shared Accounts

The OKI Open Platform embedded solution offers the same level of tracking functionality in copying as PaperCut does for printing. Each job may be allocated to a shared account that can represent a department, project or client.

  • Shared account access is optional. Administrators can configure each user's interface and account depending on their role.
  • Access to shared accounts is easily administered and can leverage Active Directory/LDAP groups.
  • Real-time account and user level reporting is a core feature

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 / code
