An application that allows users in multiple groups to select which group the printing or copying job gets billed to.

Why do I need the PaperCut App and where can I get it?

The PaperCut Client Application runs on the local computer of users that belong to multiple printing Accounting groups. You will know if you are one of these lucky people if you were directed here via an email you received in the middle of the night... There are versions for Windows and macOS.

NOTE: These steps should ONLY be performed on your self-managed device, on-campus, connected to our WiFi. It WILL NOT WORK at home.

I love printing! Let's install it!
