PaperCut MF embedded application tour for Canon MFD

PaperCut MF Interface Walkthrough for Canon MFDs


The Canon embedded solution is developed in-house by the PaperCut Software development team. This ensures that the copier interface is consistent with the workstation print interface, meaning users only have to learn one system and one set of terminology.


PaperCut MF is a single integrated solution where print and copier control are all managed in the one system. Users have a single account and administrators have the same level of reporting and administration for all services. The embedded solution interacts with the PaperCut server using a Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) and web services based protocols.

Rate of Development

PaperCut is developed under a release-often policy where new features are made available to users as soon as they are complete. Unlike hardware based solutions, new versions can be delivered to users regularly as software updates.

Vendor Neutrality

PaperCut remains true to its vendor neutral stance. All embedded solutions are equal and support all server OS's including Windows, Linux and Mac.


A large percentage of PaperCut's user base is in education environments where security is important. All embedded solutions are developed with security in mind. Where security objectives can't be satisfied, any deficiencies are fully disclosed.

Integrated Authentication

  • Leverage your existing single sign-on infrastructure by allowing users to log in with the same username and password used elsewhere on the network. No need to remember and maintain multiple logins!
  • Integrate with existing single sign-on environments such as:
    • Microsoft Active Directory
    • Apple Open Directory
    • Novell eDirectory
    • Other LDAP, NIS or POSIX environments
  • Optionally authenticate using convenient ID numbers and optional PINs for extra security

Find Me printing integration

Also known as "Follow Me" or "Pull Printing", Find Me printing provides users in environments with several compatible multi-function devices (MFDs) to print to a single virtual global queue. Users can then collect their print jobs from any MFD.

Track and Control Copying

  • Charge different types of copying at different rates
  • All usage reported in the PaperCut logs
  • Optionally limit amount of copying users can perform

Track Faxing and Scanning

  • Track scanning to e-mail or to a file
  • Track sending faxes
  • Simple per-page cost model or 2-tiered cost model for volume discounts
  • All usage reported in the PaperCut logs
  • Filter job logs to display just copy, fax or scan jobs

Seamless User Experience

  • Provide users with the same account selection options they use for printing via the popup
  • If shared account access is granted, users have the option to select accounts from a list or using a PIN
  • Control access to accounts using Active Directory groups

Consolidated Reporting and Management

Consolidated management and reporting in either summary or detailed formats are readily available at the click of a button for all copies and prints across your entire fleet:

  • By device (printers & copiers)
  • By user
  • By shared account (client, department, faculty)
  • By location
  • By date and time / period
  • By environmental impact


PaperCut's embedded solutions work together with the PaperCut server software. This means that you benefit from a choice of server operating system (Windows, Linux, Mac, and Novell) and all management is conducted from a single admin console. There are no hidden extras such as external dependencies or database licensing.
