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!

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.

Thank you BLI! (and thanks to you too…)

Amazing news! We’re thrilled to announce that PaperCut v17 was named a Keypoint Intelligence BLI 2018 Pick Award winner in the Outstanding Cost Accounting & Cost Control Solution category! BLI‘s analysts said PaperCut MF and PaperCut NG top the charts when it comes to cost savings, all thanks to the amazing features our partners and customers have […]

Saving the environment a workplace at a time

With a name like PaperCut, it’s reasonably obvious where we stand on conserving the environment. From recycled timber in our offices to the development of an environmental guild to promote sustainable business practices, we’re keen on looking after our planet.

To keep us focused, we invite speakers into our offices to share the latest environmental news.

It feels good to give a little

I was so happy when I heard that the PaperCut Leadership team had decided to sponsor the first ever Illuminate Gala Ball.  Not just because the cause was close to my heart – autism support and awareness – but also because it made me feel good to know that the company I worked for was prepared to give to help others.

What happens in the phone booth? The story behind our costume change

Since the beginning of time (1998), the entire team here at PaperCut has worked hard to continually improve the software with every release. Version 17.0, our first major release of 2017,  brings in a fresh, new look for the PaperCut NG and MF admin interface by our UI design team, comprising of Senior UI Designer […]

When the “non-technical” employees get involved in hackathons

Before you get involved in your first ever Hackathon (an opportunity to step away from the day to day, be inspired, think big and collaborate with people you might not normally have the opportunity) you definitely have an idea of what it will be like… innovative, fun, memorable and AMAZING!! It’s no wonder I was […]

Starting 2017 by investing in the future

PaperCutters are always about pushing the envelope and are never interested in business as usual. We therefore don’t want to spit out some lame new years resolution, as we statistically know that resolution fulfillment steadily drops down through the months of the year. Life (and software) do not reset every new years (except back in […]

A robot to automate printer trays?

If you think going to a printer to clear a paper jam is painful, imagine having to do endless tests to trigger error statuses on printers. Pulling the tray out, waiting for an error to appear in the UI and then pushing the tray back in again. There’s got to be a better way. Luckily […]

Are you ready to take on the Pie Face Challenge?

Nick and Patti at ITS. Chris and Julie at PaperCut. All 4 have had pie in their face, and now it’s your turn! In honor of the recent passing of a member of our Authorized Solution Center family, Alexandre Barbuat from Bluemega, we’re Standing up to Cancer and taking on the “Pie Face Challenge.”

Constructival – PaperCut’s first global hackathon

In 2009, the now famous author, Dan Pink shared a disruptive concept in his book, “Drive: The Surprising Truth About What Motivates Us”. This concept focuses on empowering employees to expand their capabilities by focusing on their intrinsic motivation, the desire to do things because they matter, because they’re interesting, and because they are part […]
