PaperCut 13.0 – Archive and view print activity

PaperCut Software welcomes you to 2013 with the release of PaperCut 13.0! We are proud to reveal new features and functionality, and have added one of your most requested features of last year – Print Archiving.

Print Archiving allows approved administrators to review printed jobs interactively in the browser.

Print Archiving and spool file viewing

This feature is ideal for a variety of scenarios including information security, audit processes and validating refund requests. Many organisations have data retention and distribution policies, whether they be requirements to archive e-mail or restrictions on USB storage devices and cloud services. Printing has traditionally presented an auditing difficulty, and PaperCut’s Print Archiving adds to the auditing tool belt.

Let us know how you use Print Archiving, and how you’d like to see it extended and enhanced in future releases. To see how Print Archiving works in detail, please see the manual entry.


One for the Hotshots

One of the hottest features in PaperCut is advanced print scripting, which is being leveraged by more and more power administrators. We have listened to the feedback and added the following:

  • Scripts can now be previewed, allowing you to quickly cut and paste example code into your own scripts.
  • Common functions that are shared between individual printer scripts can now be stored in, and referenced from, a master include script.

As you know we are passionate about technology and supporting all platforms; whether that be Linux operating systems, Novell clustering solutions or iPads. The same applies to our off-the-glass tracking solution (PaperCut MF) and its support for a diverse range of manufacturers. We are proud to announce our support for additional industry-leading manufacturers:

We would like to thank these vendors for their support in bringing PaperCut solutions to these devices.


The Fine Print: If you have a current subscription to Premium Upgrade Assurance you may upgrade to version 13 at no additional cost. For our other customers please see our upgrade policy to determine if you are eligible for a free upgrade. One-time upgrades may be purchased via our online order system. Upgrading now will entitle you to all the releases in the 13.x series throughout the year.

Please refer to the relevant release history for full details.

A few key lessons learned

It might be eye-opening for some of you to hear what goes on behind the scenes at PaperCut Software. My name is Mathew Buttrey and I have joined the PaperCut team as Channel Manager.

In particular you might like to know what it’s like to start employment at PaperCut. Coming from large organizations with strong corporate culture (most recently the worlds largest consumer electronics company) this was sure to be a shock to the system… Here’s what I’ve learned so far……

Lesson 1 – No suits!

Even in the interview a comment was made “thanks for dressing up” (even though I’d taken my tie off to feel a little more at home).

Lesson 2 – Drink coffee…..

Although not a mandate, coffee culture is strong within the team and with 2 free rounds per day, there are good savings to be had for a 2 latte per day person like yours truly.

Lesson 3 – Leave your pride at the door…..

PaperCut operates with a flat management structure which allows for fast paced and collaborative planning/execution of tasks. Being part of a team that has input (and believe it, there is a lot of input) on your content creation is certainly an adjustment for the pride department!

Lesson 4 – Get FIT!

Don’t be fooled, the people you see on our about page look harmless enough, but commute to work with them and an underbelly of pushbike heros surface! 3 days after the first commute and one can still barely sit down.

Get fit with PaperCut

Tom’s hipster machine.

Lesson 5 – Brush up on geography!

If you didn’t know the world before, you sure will. Google maps is a requirement most days due to our far reaching partner network (Hi to everyone in Rancho Cucumonga!!).

Lastly – Have fun!

A good sense of humour is mostly required – even if the jokes about code tend to fly over one’s head.

Feel free to keep this list on hand if you ever have the opportunity to spend some time with the PaperCut team – In summary, remember to brush up on your coding jokes, check your pride at the front door but remember to bring your bike shorts!!
