PaperCut MF embedded application tour for Canon MFD

PaperCut MF Interface Walkthrough for Canon MFDs

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 Canon MFD

Protect your valuable Canon MFPs 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 Canon embedded solution is developed in-house by the PaperCut Software development team. This ensures that the copier interface is consistent with the workstation print interface, meaning users only have to learn one system and one set of terminology. This 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.
