PaperCut Hive makes printing convenient, responsible, and secure in your organization.

We're all for flexibility. This app gives you the option to securely release your print jobs using your mobile phone. Of course, you can also release your job at the MFD/Printer touch screen as well. This mobile app just gives you one more option, and a touch-free one at that!

To get the most out of this app, make sure you have an approved email invitation to use your organization's printers & MFPs.

To release prints using your phone, simply tap your phone on an NFC sticker on the printer, scanning a QR code, or selecting the printer's name from a list.

Did you forget to double-side the document? No problem, the PaperCut Hive app will remind you and allow you to make those changes on your way to the printer.

PaperCut Hive makes it easy to print from all your devices including desktops, laptops, Chromebooks, and of course your iOS phone. See! You can use your phone for work too!

Here’s how it works:
- You’ll receive an invitation from your organization
- It will guide you through the installation of this app as well as apps on your computers and other devices
- You will then be able to select ‘PaperCut Printer’ when printing from any of your devices
- This app also allows you to view your print jobs and securely collect your documents at any printer/MFD in your organization
- Simply walk up to the printer and tap the NFC stickers, scan a QR code, or use the MFD touch screen. This app gives you a contactless/touch-free release method.

- Have you ever printed your payslip and had to run (sprint!) to the printer to collect it before anyone else does? Fixed!
- Have you walked to the printer only to realise your document has gone somewhere else? Fixed! We call this find-me or pull-printing printing.
- Do you forget to select duplex at the time of printing, but then feel guilty as you watch an endless stream of pages roll out? Fixed!
- Confused by different print dialogues on different devices? BYOD? Fixed!
- Need to set up printing on a new device and wish it could be as easy as installing a new app? Fixed!

Have a question? Please email or get in touch with the PaperCut Partner supporting you.

Note: This app requires that your organization has an active and configured PaperCut Hive account and the PaperCut Hive embedded software installed on your MFDs. You should receive an invitation or instruction on how to set up this app from your organization.

This app is a mess

My college switched to PaperCut a few months ago, and it’s been nothing but problems ever since. We all basically have to delete and fully redownload everything every time we use it, and my computer won’t cooperate (I’ve heard Macs sometimes don’t, not sure why), so printing even a single, black-and-white, one page document is something that I have to budget AT LEAST 20 minutes for, sometimes significantly longer. I really hope that my college gets rid of this, but in the meantime, I guess I’ll have to cut down on printing anything that isn’t an absolute necessity and pray that it doesn’t decide to fight me for an hour on something I actually need. Is this your plan to cut down on paper use, PaperCut? Because if so, it’s the only thing that’s actually working.

I like it but …

First the glows: I don’t have to worry if I accidentally print the wrong thing because I have to release it first and I can preview before doing so. I also like that I can release from my phone. I like that I can walk up to any printer at work and release rather than running back to the printer furthest away.

Now the grows: too many times my print jobs disappear (either they never show up or they say printing but again never show up). The app keeps crashing so I can’t release from my phone and yes this is important to me. And finally overall something about this app has been making all of our printers inoperable. One of the printers will keep resetting itself.

Bad UX

Desktop download doesn’t work on Mac and is required to print. Why do I have to get a mobile app and a desktop app to be able to print? I should be able to choose between one or the other, or use alternatively just use a web browser interface, to be able to submit a print job. FedEx and UPS figured out print job services like 15 years ago, how is this service designed so poorly?
