PaperCut 18.0, now with Job Ticketing!
For too long, in-house print rooms have been disconnected from your office printing. You need a solution where your users can request print jobs for your print room online. Where you can charge each user automatically. Where the print experience is as easy as printing to a multifunction printer.
That's why we built Job Ticketing.
How does Job Ticketing work?
Leveraging the PaperCut MF platform, Job Ticketing securely lets you track and control production printing, 3D printing, laser cutting or any other service offered in print rooms.
Wondering whether it’ll work on your device?
It will. It doesn’t matter what type of device it is, they can all be managed. All you need is PaperCut MF 18.0+ installed, which is Job Ticketing-ready.
PaperCut’s Web Print enables printing from user-owned devices without the overhead of installing client software, printer drivers, and managing server authentication. Users print by simply uploading documents with a standard web browser. Deployed across thousands of organizations, it is an ideal solution for print services via BYOD.
With Web Print, users are authenticated when they log in to the PaperCut NG or PaperCut MF User web interface. Any documents they upload can then be tracked against their user name. Users have access to features set up by IT, including access to shared accounts.
ECM systems have traditionally been focused on managing documents and other content: contracts, proposals, invoices and so on, often referred to as "unstructured content."
But other core business systems (CRM, ERP, HR, etc.) also contain information vital to managing documents and other content.
The new approach to ECM embraces these core systems to create a unified, 360° view of information, so no matter what system you're using, you always find what you need.

Releasing print jobs will save money for sure, but does it fit your workflow? will the people accept it? These are questions a print specialist can help with but the answers will vary from company to company.

The benefits are:
So is it right for your organization? The answer is maybe...if saving money is top priority then yes, the users will have to get used to it. If making your users happy is top priority then maybe not...unless they work in a dept. that has to get downsized due to high printing costs...
If you're in the market for Document Management Software here are some very GENERAL guidelines:
Budget, these are budgetary quotes, your mileage will vary:
Document Management Pricing Components:
There are many software platforms to help manage documents and workflows, the pricing above will get you in the ballpark for budgeting purposes, I wouldn't choose a platform based on price if the products you're looking at are close. The most important component is the project team.
Success will depend on the team, both yours and the vendor's. You must have a good project manager, whether it's internal or supplied by the solutions vendor this role is vital.
The solutions vendor can do everything for you including maintenance and building out the program, but having someone internal fully trained on the platform will accelerate adoption and value taking you to the next level!
Hope this helps!
