Complete cloud-native print management for business


Convenient printing for everyone

Somehow, printing got complicated, for both users and SysAdmins: BYOD and smartphones, multiple operating systems, mixed printer brands… well PaperCut Hive, with its serverless printing, makes printing easy again. Users simply print from any device to a single print queue and securely release their print job using their mobile phone or the MFP/MFD’s touchscreen.

Convenient print release options

Print to one queue and pick up at any MFP/MFD using the simple ‘tap and release’ workflow powered by Find-Me printing.

Simple and quick onboarding for users and guests

Get people printing with simultaneous group invites – just sync with Google Workspace (former G Suite) and Office 365 (Microsoft 365).

Have you ever forgotten to pick up the payroll from the printer? PaperCut Hive has security features built in to keep your documents private and on-site, helping to protect your data before, during, and after printing.

PaperCut Hive FAQs

All the things you want to know about PaperCut Hive.

Yes it’s easy to set up. With the help of our global partner network you can be set up in no time on most modern printers and MFDs. PaperCut Hive is based on the same design principles as PaperCut Pocket. We are super proud with the intuitive admin interface that allows you to quickly enable features that make printing secure, easy and sustainable.

One of PaperCut’s strengths over the last 20 years has been to support every printer and operating system.

We’ve stayed true to this vision in this product. Over the first few months PaperCut Hive has been tested on printer models from pretty much every manufacturer, every brand and we’re yet to find a brand we cannot support.

MFP/MFD touchscreen embedded software supports on-device secure print release and is available for leading printer brands; and we’re adding more brands as you are reading this. Our goal is to support the same set of brands and modes of printers/MFPs/MFDs as supported by our flagship product PaperCut MF.

PaperCut Hive just like PaperCut MF is sold and supported by our global network of certified resellers and partners. Please reach out to us, let us know your story and let’s talk about the best way to get PaperCut Hive in your hands.

Education has special requirements and the initial phase of PaperCut Hive is not tailored for education. Check out PaperCut MF , which is specifically designed for education. Over time we’ll be bringing more cloud technologies to education. Stay tuned for more announcements.

Not yet and deliberately so. We’ve designed PaperCut Hive to be enterprise scalable, with security and reliability at its core. An example of this is using the latest IoT technology such as Edge Mesh. For example, this is similar to what you see in modern lighting and security systems as they continue to work locally even if they lose connectivity to the cloud.

Our initial focus is on small to medium businesses, so we can give more focused and in-depth attention to feature development in the early stages. This means we can mature quickly for enterprise. If you are an enterprise customer and looking for power today please speak to us about our flagship product PaperCut MF which can be self-hosted, on premise or in the cloud.

Computer says yes! It’s super easy. The SysAdmin just sends the visitor an email invite so they can self-onboard. Or they can request access themselves by simply scanning the QR code at the MFD’s label.

In some ways yes and in some ways no. PaperCut Hive, like PaperCut MF, integrates directly with the MFD or printer firmware. It provides advanced features (such as secure print release on the device) and usage tracking (such as print, copy, and scanning tracking). It is also a product that’s serviced and supported by our global and partner network.

PaperCut Hive is designed to be only available as a fully-hosted product, while PaperCut MF includes the option to self-host.PaperCut MF is our flagship product and is packed full of features, many of which will make their way into PaperCut Hive gradually over time. Organizations needing the full power of print management should consider PaperCut MF.

Both products are our first products out of our new cloud-native platform. They share a lot of infrastructure but they are different in terms of features and functionality.

PaperCut Pocket is designed to be for self-set up and aimed at customers for DIY installation. PaperCut Hive integrates directly with MFDs and printers via embedded touch screen technology at the firmware level and contains much more advanced technology and many more features.

We have a global partner network that distributes PaperCut Hive and they have the skills and experience to support you to get the most out of the more advanced technology.

In addition to advanced MFD technology, PaperCut Hive includes a number of advanced Add-ons that empower customers in particular industries. Check out the product information on this page to learn more.

Yes, that’s one of the main differences between PaperCut Pocket and PaperCut Hive. We already have this functionality for most major print vendor brands and we’re quickly rounding that out to have the same level of coverage PaperCut is known for.

We’ve been working with our global partner network and print manufacturers to ensure the PaperCut Hive MFD embedded software is cloud-ready and supported globally.

Yes, PaperCut Hive supports printing from iPhone/iOS or Android mobile devices/smartphones. This is a standard feature that is included by default. Users just need to follow the simple steps in their invitation email to download the PaperCut Hive mobile app. Additionally, they can also use the mobile app that provides a touch-free (contactless) print release experience at the MFP/MFD.

Yes, we support most major card technologies out of the box including proximity cards like MIFARE, HID and NFC technologies. Or if you are into retro tech we can even dust off the good old barcode reader.

Your end-users can also self-associate their cards directly on the MFD without any admin interaction required.

No, PaperCut Hive is a true public cloud print management solution and it’s fully-hosted for you. It’s also a server-free product so there is no requirement for you to maintain a print server or have your own cloud account. Think of PaperCut Hive as your outsourced print infrastructure.
