PaperCut MF embedded application tour for Kyocera Mita MFD

PaperCut is a single integrated solution where copier usage is managed together with network printing all in one system. Users have a single account and administrators have the same level of administration for all services.

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:
    • Microsoft Active Directory
    • Apple Open Directory
    • Novell eDirectory
    • Other LDAP, NIS or POSIX environments
  • Optionally authenticate using swipe cards, proximity cards or ID numbers and optional PINs for extra security.


Authenticating with a username and password at a Kyocera Mita MFD

Protect your valuable Kyocera MFDs from usage by unauthorized staff or visitors or limit expensive color copying to selected members of your organization.

  • User allocated quotas or budgets
  • shared account budgets
  • or a user-pays upfront model

Group memberships in your user directory can serve as a basis for fine-grained access control.

The Kyocera Mita embedded solution offers the same level of tracking for copying as PaperCut does for printing. Jobs may be allocated to shared accounts that represent departments, projects or clients.

  • Shared accounts are optional - some users can have a simplified interface while others get access to search and select accounts.
  • Shared account access is easily controlled using Active Directory/LDAP groups
  • Real-time account and user level reporting.

If enabled, shared accounts can be accessed using a number of on-screen convenient methods:

  • Selection from list
  • Quick entry via code/PIN
  • Search by keyword

Users are configured once and are provided with a consistent experience for both network printing and off-the-glass MFP use.

Charging to a shared account while copying

Also known as "Follow Me" or "Pull Printing", Find Me printing provides users in environments with several identical multi-function devices to print to a single virtual global queue. They can then walk up and log on to a device nearby available device and have their print job pulled from the global queue and printed on the spot. Users have a single account and administrators have the same level of reporting and administration for all services More on Find Me on our tour page.

Release methods include:

  • Automatic release on log in
  • Release from list

Copying

PaperCut MF monitors copying page-by-page and reports copier usage live in the central PaperCut usage log together with details like color/black & white, page sizes, duplex etc.

Use copy details to define costs and track users' copier usage across your whole fleet.

Users' copier usage, just like printing, can be controlled by

  • User allocated quotas or budgets
  • Shared account budgets
  • User-pays upfront model
  • Optionally limit amount of copying users can perform

The device will deny copying in excess of quota or account balance.

Ranges of related pages can be grouped into 'copy jobs'. Unique to the Kyocera-Mita solution, all tracking is done in real-time and jobs can be denied even before they start. This means that users don't run out of credit half-way through a job.

Scanning and Faxing

  • 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
  • Optionally limit amount of scanning/faxing users can perform
  • Filter job logs to display just copy, scan/fax jobs

PaperCut offers more than 50 standard reports. Reports detail copying, printing or consolidated view. Highlights include:

  • By user
  • By shared account (client, department, faculty)
