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 […]

The great PaperCut ride and shave

G’day, My name is Jason Clarke, I’ve been with PaperCut nearly 7 years, firstly in our customer facing tech Support Team in Melbourne, and now as the IT guy supporting over 100 staff. After being the IT guy in both a high school and now at PaperCut, I can see the frustrations felt by SysAdmins […]

Happy System Administrators’ Day 2016!

Happy SysAdmin Day to all of our hard working System Administrators out there! We know how hard you all work to keep our networks and (in PaperCut’s world) print servers so we thought we’d celebrate today by giving away some cool PaperCut laser swords!

Where did everyone go?

There aren’t many companies where you can prank the CEO and CTO, but we managed to do it when we moved office! With a team growing at a pace faster than our agile development, we moved HQ once again, only two years after the last growth spurt. In keeping with PaperCut’s ‘qwirky’ fun culture, we […]

Bring back the dot matrix!

If you worked in an office or school during the nineties, the whirring of a dot matrix printer will be as familiar as a fax machine transmission or dial up modem tone. While some delivery environments still use this impact technology for two part forms and multipart waybills, the old dot matrix brings us back […]

Melbourne Knowledge Week and some Raspberry Pi

Guiding partners through the PaperCut application by day, and occasional technology coach at the weekends. Recently I donned the PaperCut t-shirt and got down to programming with kids and adults of all ages using Raspberry Pi and Minecraft at Melbourne Knowledge Week. The event was held by the City of Melbourne here in Victoria to […]

Moving to the Big Apple

It’s been a big year, moving from Melbourne and the land down under to the Big Apple, New York City! Not only that, moving roles within PaperCut from coding software to supporting customers around the world.  The first time I came to NYC was only 2 years ago. The vibe of the city was amazing, I […]

Our CEO and CTO back Innovation

Australian’s are a hardy bunch, a great nation built on the foundations of our vast land and abundant resources; our national anthem adds to the narrative of our golden soil and wealth for toil. As a nation we are now more aware than ever that our mineral and farming resources alone cannot sustain us as […]

PaperCut MF v15.3 – The making of Integrated Scanning

Having been at PaperCut for 18 months now, I was lucky enough to learn and contribute in different areas of our product. From an accessibility feature to release print jobs, Mac client transformation to use the native bar through to adding support for the IMAP protocol in Email to Print. But that only lasted two months… and then […]

Industry placement: a day in the life of an intern

Greetings and salutations everyone! My name is Zak and I’m a 21 year old software dev intern who has been working at PaperCut for the last 8 months. Last year, I was in my 3rd year at Swinburne University (and during this time I bumped into one of PaperCut’s founders, Chris at a Golang meetup. […]
