    NG and MF are basically the same thing - just MF also integrates copiers/MFDs... I think you're referring to the logger not NG.

Perhaps it's our setup or the guys that installed it but we have sporadic issues with two of the multifunctions just idling away and not printing or even receiving jobs, sometimes the PIN entry doesn't work, sometimes it prints without the PIN sometimes it doesn't print at all.

    I just doubt the fact that it is as popular as it is claimed to be, but evidently I'm wrong! To me it seems like the kind of software that would be a lot cheaper or even free or at least something that could be hashed together from free products. But then what would I know? We (The network admins) don't have admin access to it so perhaps it is great after all!
    PaperCut is pretty cool

    I think as you have not been involved in the discussion to purchase the product (nothing to do with Papercut that's the way your organisation works) and the fact you cant gain access to its admin features may have put the product in a bad light.
    My first thought (as already suggested) is to ask for access and training on the product, its pretty simple and infact PaperCut themselves have a tour and a live demo for you to have a poke round:
    PaperCut MF Tour - Features and Overview
    Live Demo - PaperCut
    You could even download NG and install it on a test VM or even a laptop to have a play with it locally.

    The second thing to do is to raise the issue you are having with the Ricohs with your supplier and / or papercut support using support@papercut.com or calling the UK (assuming you are in the UK) number on the contact page here:Contact Us - PaperCut

    I doubt you will find a free product as feature rich.

    We run the MF version here too with Richo copiers and have no issues with the system, simple to set up and run.

    +1 for us - have done since approx 2006. My only gripe is that they simply will not implement the ability to pre-filter the printer list on the release web interface (not release station, but where you can login to any machine and release jobs "held" in a queue, such as in the classroom).

    Otherwise, great piece of software and I do not doubt that many schools and indeed businesses use it successfully.

    PaperCut is a cheaper and effective solution compared with other software solutions I've come across.

    Exactly as above. The reason for not using the full version is political, not because I have any doubts that I couldn't use it very successfully.

    I'd suggest that either it's been set up wrongly or the faulty MFDs aren't compatible.

    We've used NG in the past and upgraded to MF and its been very good. I won't say "flawless" but near as damn it.

    Have been using NG here for the last 6 years at least. Has never failed on us yet, upgrade every couple of years to the latest version. Departments dont like it but then they wouldn't with the recharges. Emails all department heads at start of each month to let them know their useage too. Did want to move to the MF version but our copiers needed to be upgraded so wasn't worth the cost at the time.
