Giving back to the community through our new leave initiative

We believe in providing a better future for our planet and the people who live on it.

By following our core values, we’ve grown into a successful business over the past 20 years.

So how do we make sure our caring culture continues as we do? Here’s just one way.

Digital asset libraries, virtual ponds… Just another killer Constructival

Ah, Constructival. Two glorious days when every PaperCutter swaps their nine-to-five hat for a let’s-make-something-rad-’cause-we-can sombrero.

Where new ideas and innovations burst forth from the woodwork like bugs in a rushed end-of-year release.

Find out what went down, and what 2018 saw us Frankenstein into existence for the ultimate hackathon.

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.

The PaperCut Band strikes a chord and jams for a cause

Every now and then, a few PaperCut musos (myself included) get together for a jam as The PaperCut Band.

Putting as much energy into performing as we do developing smashing print management, this year’s Battle of the Agile Bands saw us really play from the heart – and for a great cause.

Read on for the cliff notes!

Life after maternity leave

Last year I was fortunate to welcome our newest family member – a joyous occasion celebrated by our little family (especially big sister), extended family, friends and my work family.

I’m back at work now, so here’s my list of adjustments, realities and what I’m mastering to ensure I can survive work post-maternity leave!

This is PaperCut

This isn’t the typical PaperCut post that gives you a bunch of tips or how-tos about print management or anything like that.

We made this short film, you see, and I really wanted to share it with you.

Let me know what you think.

Composting and PaperCut: the perfect match

If I think about what really drew me to PaperCut, it’d have to be our software’s awesome potential to reduce waste globally.

So discovering that our earth-loving values extend to sustainable practices was terrific – and a real motivator to do my part locally.

That’s why I started up composting, right here in Portland!

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 …

Getting to know … Chris Goult, Brisbane

Chris Goult recently joined us as our shiny new channel marketing manager.  Chris comes to us from Konica Minolta Business Solutions Australia, with loads of knowledge and enthusiasm for all things marketing and channel related.

We caught up for coffee and questions.

The day I discovered HITRUST

“Never a Dull Moment” (#NADM) is a blog series about the life and times (ok, mainly the times) of Americas Presales Specialist Tanner Dull.

I love talking to PaperCut callers about their print problems. One such caller wanted to solve a problem in her medical business. She mentioned HITRUST, a term I’d not encountered before. Here’s what happened …
