The Free PaperCut Print Logger Has Been Rejuvenated!

The PaperCut developers have been working hard in getting out the 11.1 release which had many enhancements and minor new features. Due to the high positive feedback about PaperCut 11’s new look and feel, we felt the urge to give a new life to our free print logging program as well.

PaperCut Print Logger

This task, being a relatively straightforward one, was given to me (Puneet), the summer intern. I started my internship here at PaperCut Software in January 2011. It has been a pleasure working here with friendly, hardworking and enthusiastic coffee-loving developers (they weren’t able to make me start drinking coffee though!).

Over my very exciting and fulfilling two months here, I did a great amount of software testing, helped out with User Web Tool Customisation, restructured the Knowledge Base, added the header and footer to the online manual, and now, revamped the free Print Logger.

In this version…

  • Most of my work went into stripping down and re-decorating the Print Logger with the New look and feel based on PaperCut 11’s new design.
  • We added the News Gadget which allows you to keep up to date with the developments at PaperCut.
  • The New About tab lets us share some information about PaperCut and lets you follow us close.

Print Logger is aimed at small businesses and home users. Don’t hesitate, download the new version today!

Who’s using PaperCut? PepsiCo, HP and Dad!

Since we release our free print logging program a few years back its been a hit with hundreds of thousands of downloads. Every now and then we receive a thank you email or a short story about how people are finding it useful. One user recently wrote to us to thank us for helping him track down why his ink was disappearing. He had no explanation as to why his home printer ran out of ink every few weeks. Print Logger to the rescue! A quick audit of print activity shows that his kids did a lot of printing before he got home from work. Now printing in his household is restricted to homework use only and he’s happy again!

There are also plenty of other examples at the big end of town. Today I received an email from PepsiCo and HP outlining their use of PaperCut Print Logger. It’s great to see that this little free program has uses ranging from small homes to the largest corporates.

For us, PaperCut Print Logger serves two purposes:

1) It’s a great test bed for our printer page analysis technology. With hundreds of thousands of users, we quickly get reports about incompatibility with new drivers. The program actively encourages users to report incompatibilities and in turn this ensures that all our applications offer the widest range of support.

2) It’s also a fantastic way to get a “taste” of our applications. Many schools for example will install PaperCut Print Logger to get a quick view of what’s going on on their networks. It’s then only a small jump to move to PaperCut to implement print control, quotas, reporting, and of course monitor the environmental impact of printing.

If you’re running print logger, please take a few moments to send us an email and share your stories.

PaperCut Print Logger now in Spanish

Wow! On the back of the Italian translation of PaperCut Print Logger, Alessia and her team have translated PaperCut Print Logger into Spanish. The translation has been done by a Spanish girl in her class under the supervision from their teacher who can also speak Spanish. On behalf of all the Spanish users of PaperCut, we’d like to send a big thank you to Alessia and her team at San Pio V University in Italy.
