Pros: Before PaperCut, students would either print to our color printer for EVERYTHING, or we would need to block them from using the color printer. Now we can allow a certain amount of printing per student, which helps them manage their own print jobs!

Cons: Sometimes printing from Chromebooks doesn't work, and IT says it is the link between papercut and google.

Overall: Students can manage their own print jobs, preventing wasted toner and paper

Papercut makes managing print jobs a breeze.

Pros: As a school district, we go through a ton of printer consumables. Papercut allows us to track and limit print jobs, and to see who our problem users are. We can set quotas to prevent unneeded printing from happening.

Cons: Google Cloud Print integration could be a little better, we have to republish our printers every now and then.

Overall: Helps us save on paper and toner, and identify problem users.

Great software to manage printer usage and quotas

Pros: Printer consumables are not cheap, and Papercut allows us to identify where the problem is. We can also assign quotas to stop problems before they begin

Cons: The link with Google printing often disconnects, and IT needs to be contacted to fix the issue. This may just be a problem with Google.

Overall: Great print management and weekly reports. Can assign quotas to people to stop misuse of printers and toner.

Brought into our environment as part of a Printer purchase where color was being introduced.

Pros: The ability to generate and distribute management reports. Ease of selection of printers to monitor and customizable page costs

Cons: The pricing can be somewhat steep. In our school district we limit monitoring of Staff only. The software defaults to adding all new users and unless it is overridden.

Overall: The usage reports provide good viability into printing activity within our school district.

Does what it needs to but no fun to manage.

Pros: Users are in control of their own expenditure.
Works across printing and photocopying.
Linux, MacOS and Windows for server and users.

Cons: Doesn't catch USB dongle printing on Ricoh MFD.
Made by developers for developers, no thought is given to UX.
Lack of integrations and cloud service.
Google Cloud print integration stinks to set up and so hard to use you won't want to roll it out to users.
You have to be comfortable editing text files to take full advantage of features.
No integration with invoicing software indicates the company's focus is not on administration.

Overall: We know who printed what and can type that into an invoice for them.

Some connection problems but an overall good software.

Pros: Once you get connected it is as simple as can be: connect, hit print, go to the printer, log in, and print. There is an ID card reader that allows students/employees quick and painless access. Once logged into the printer there are a variety of functions.

Cons: I had quite a few connection issues. You must be on the specific WiFi network and if there is a problem logging into that you cannot connect. I was able to see our IT team and fix the error, but later I was randomly removed from the printer network and had the same connection issue all over again. You also must connect separately to the black and white function and the color function on your laptop.

Overall: Quick and painless (once connected) printing.

I have used PaperCut for work and school uses.

Pros: PaperCut has many interesting environmental features such as showing the user how much paper they have used in terms of trees. It also displays personal statistics clearly and easily.

Cons: There is a bit of a learning curve with this software. Especially when being used in a large university setting with many printers in use, it is difficult at first to understand how to pick which printer you want, but after a couple of uses, it is much easier.

We use this at our college and it is a very simple and convenient program

Pros: This software pulls from Active Directory and is web-based to manage. It makes simple tasks very simple and is extremely user-friendly.

Cons: The customer support is a bit slow and recently ran into a licensing issue that locked down our software entirely. It also has a bad habit of, for no reason at all, creating users without copy tracking enabled which defeats the purpose in our environment.

Beneficial and helps cut costs
