Education, professional service and commercial customers now able to manage specialty production and 3D printing capabilities under one easy-to-use solution
PaperCut, a global software company, today announced the general availability of its PaperCut MF v18.0 software, bringing specialty production printing and 3D printing under one, easy to use software solution. Admins and operators can simply manage all specialty jobs, while also taking advantage of PaperCut’s powerful cost management, security and user identification features with the new Job Ticketing capability.
The update connects in-house print rooms and fab labs at educational institutions, legal organizations, local governments, commercial organizations and hospitals to PaperCut’s print management system. The Job Ticketing capability allows operators to accept specialty and 3D printing job submissions, such as laser cutting and prototype production, and track them through the production process while communicating the status to the requesting user.
“Until now, the lack of connection between our customers’ general and specialty printing solutions – such as print rooms and 3D fab labs – has been a burden that cost them both time and money,” said Chris Dance, co-founder and CEO of PaperCut. “To solve these problems, we’ve created a simple solution that will improve their specialty printing controls, security and payment options.”
Because this feature falls under the same software individuals use to manage general office printing, users don’t have to set up a separate profile or be re-authenticated to submit a print request, track its progression and flag questions or last-minute changes to the operator. This allows operators to spend less time managing processes—which are often manual and time-consuming—and more time driving adoption of their services and delivering high quality products for their customers.
