PaperCut is widely known around the world in higher education for their solutions that greatly decrease paper costs on college campuses. But did you know they originally started out by creating a print quota application for one of their local high schools in Australia?

It’s a little known fact that high school campuses actually use more paper per capita than college campuses their exact same size. Part of that is because colleges are a little further along in digital initiatives. BYOD on college campuses is pretty much the rule now, whereas 1:1 in K-12 is still growing.

This equates to a bigger need in K-12 for good old fashioned work sheets, thus creating more paper. Not to mention the fact that in middle and high school, kids go crazy with the copy machine thinking they need 5,000 flyers for their school dance (population 250).

That’s where PaperCut comes in now.

PaperCut is a printing management solution designed for large enterprise installations like high schools, middle schools and even elementary schools. Setting up PaperCut for Education on your school’s campus will drastically reduce the waste paper created. It also has a wide variety of security and privacy features that make managing large institutions a snap.  PaperCut can also be utilized district wide, which is a huge draw for many local, regional and state districts.

PaperCut can manage student and faculty permissions across multiple printing devices. It also keeps tabs on just how much each person is printing. One of the coolest features with PaperCut is that a user can elect to print something whenever and wherever you want, but then print it out when they’re actually standing by the printer, whichever printer they want to use through a global print queue. Imagine a district front office needing to send out a district wide newsletter. The correct amount of newsletters can be printed at each local school.

With PaperCut tracking and budgeting student and faculty printing is easy. The platform can also deliver reminders and encourage people not to print if it’s not necessary.  PaperCut can also watermark printing with student and faculty names and dates so you know who’s printing what.

PaperCut goes well beyond tracking and monitoring solutions that are built into several printers. Administrators have access to reports and analytics that will help them modify usage and spending habits.
