Things we makePaperCut NG

Where is Benin?

We’re working on a new website design at the moment and I’ve been crafting some new content for the home page. We’ve always proclaimed that PaperCut is in use in over 60 countries, but this was based on figures back in 2006. I was wondering if we’d added any more to the list over the years.

So during a cup of coffee today I jumped into the license system with a bit of UNIX command-line magic and came up with the new list. We’ve now cracked 100! As a computer programmer, it’s great to know that your software is helping save paper in so many countries.

I was pretty good at Geography in high school but one name on the list stumped me. Where is Benin? Well, now I know! Thanks to Africa Rice in Benin for helping us add one more to the list.

    This is the best way of saving money and the planet with only giving students and teachers just the right amount of money to be able to print. This is the gratest way of helping schools save money and paper. Help saving the planet. On behalf of ourladys catholic college thanks for help saving the world.

  • Hi Elisha,

    Thanks very much for the positive feedback. As someone who previously worked in a school I completely agree! PaperCut makes a small difference but it all adds up! With tens of thousands of schools out there implementing print quotas, I’m sure it adds up to quite a few trees every day!

    Cheers, Chris

  • Everything is very open with a very clear explanation of the issues.
    It was definitely informative. Your site is useful. Many thanks for sharing!

  • If in 2010 you had 100 countries using Papercut I guess today there are almost 200! Anyway after a research on the Benin I just found your solution to save paper and ink, and I think it’s very promising!
