    Does anyone else use PaperCut?

    Mainly curiosity... Apparently "loads of schools use it successfully" I doubt this.

    Anyone else out there?

    I wouldn't doubt it - lots of people here use it. What version you looking @ NG or MF?

    MF does the Photocopier intergration. Just before I left my last place they signed up to have Biometric integration with there upgrade to MF/

    Use it at one school, excellent piece of software - I like it so much they used us as a case study.

    Papercut NG here, although we don't actually charge or issue print credits as yet. We use it as a monitoring tool at the moment. That could change once SMT review the data though

    Yep, one of the loads.

    Using it at a basic level but that is only because I haven't sat down and worked out how we could use it more effectively. Never had any issues.

    Can I ask which bit you doubt and why? The loads of schools or the successfully bit?

    I use papercut print logger here which I think is great. I'd love to use the full product, but there just isn't the backing from staff to limit/charge for printing. Maybe this is what the OP doubts? I doubt our school could use it successfully.

    Really?! Perhaps it's time for all three of us here to resign then!

    We run MF since recently when the school decided to implement the system with about 0% consultation and it's caused more problems than it's solved. 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!

    Also use it here in two places successfully, behaves itself nicely and runs great, one NG, one MF. Would and have recommended it, the devs even kick around on here from time to time. What kinds of issues are you having that has caused your doubt, what OS and version, maybe we can help.
