The major new feature seems to be the new Site Server function, this allows large organisations who have a main print server say in their London office who have their other offices print servers set up as secondary servers more control. As the new site server replaces the secondary server and gives continuity of print services during unexpected network dropouts.

PaperCut Mobile Print Release & Find Me Printing

At the End of 2012 PaperCut released a new function that allows the user to print to a queue and then release their jobs from any mobile device that is connected to the local network via wifi. The user logs in via their phones web browser using their AD credentials and then you can choose from a list which printer you want to print your jobs.

In a standard print environment a user’s job prints immediately and may accidentally be collected by another user. Document security is an important requirement in the modern print environment. 

This problem is usually addressed with print release by implementing dedicated release stations, embedded MFD applications, or specialist hardware. PaperCut’s Mobile Print Release provides an alternate cost effective solution that leverages the powerful devices that exist in almost everyone’s pocket – the smart phone.

Features:

* Release held jobs from any print queue with Hold/Release enabled

* Works on all modern mobile phones

* Simple intuitive interface, optimized for touch screens

* Designed to work with most modern mobiles and tablet devices

* Quickly locate printers with keyword searching (location, name or code)

* Can be used in environments with Find Me Printing configured, giving the user ultimate control over where and when their jobs are released

* Support for QR code printer location/lookup
