Why sustainability means so much to PaperCutters

Many of PaperCut’s 150+ employees have joined the company in part because of its environmentally-minded culture.

Recently, a bunch of those PaperCutters jumped in front of a camera to share their views on sustainability and how PaperCut software helps the environment.

Here’s what happened.

A sneak peek at PaperCut 18.3

The latest release of PaperCut MF & NG, version 18.3 to be exact, arrives in a few days.

To get my head around the release, I bailed up product guy Dale Micallef for a chat about stapling (it’s pretty cool, promise) and G Suite sync and authentication for G Suite Enterprise, G Suite Enterprise for Education, and Cloud Identity Premium users.

Alec and his beloved print management integrations

I’m pretty handy at sorting out my mother-in-law’s internet problems. And my brother’s laptop viruses. But when it comes to APIs, my knowledge runs out after “try turning it off and on again”.

So I caught up with resident API and integrations geek Alec for a better understanding of the role that 3rd party integrations play in the PaperCut ecosystem.

Scan to Cloud Storage: “dead simple” (and darn secure)

You may or may not already be familiar with PaperCut’s Scan to Cloud Storage feature.  If you aren’t, here’s what you should know.

Hang on, what do I mean by cloud storage? I’m talking about services such as Dropbox, OneDrive, Box and co.

Ok, let’s get goi … Wait. First, the why. Why is it important to be able to scan to cloud storage?

[WHITEPAPER] PaperCut and High Availability

99.99%.

It’s a compelling figure. The uptime guarantee trumpeted in SLAs the world over.

Of course, 100% is simply unattainable. Those SLAs must provide wiggle room for the .01% of unplanned, unavoidable, ‘well I didn’t expect THAT to happen, ‘what do you mean there’s been a power spike to the UPS’, ‘so THAT’S what that switch does’ events.

Run your hackathon the PaperCut way

Another successful PaperCut Constructival hackathon has come and gone. Around 120 PaperCutters huddled together in busy little groups for 30-odd hours and hacked to their collective heart’s’ content.

Why have a hackathon? What’s the value? How do I run a hackathon with my own team? These are the questions we’ll solve today.

A conversation with Chris about security and stuff – part 2

In an earlier post, Chris and I were talking about human negligence as a prime contributor to print security breaches. As in, people leaving sensitive documents lying about by mistake.

Now, I don’t shy away from a little gossip in my blog posts, so I ask Chris if he’s heard any horror stories about human negligence.

A conversation with Chris about security and stuff – part 1

Chatting with Chris Dance, PaperCut founder and CEO, can be a challenge. Not because of his position, mind you – he’s incredibly personable and always up for a chat.

No, it’s more because of his intellect. In a nutshell, he’s a little smarter than me. That’s the facts. Just like I’m a little taller than him, he’s a little smarter.

Here’s how it went …

PUA – like a gift that keeps on giving

PUA is how you keep your PaperCut installation up-to-date. You see, PaperCut isn’t a subscription licence – it’s perpetual. That means you buy it outright and it’s yours forever and ever and ever and … well, you get the drift.

However, just like, say, your toaster, your purchase is a particular model (or in the case of software, version).

And oh boy, does Jacques love it!
