Thanks to advanced scripting, organizations can improve their print setups. This innovation leads to smoother workflows, saves time, and cuts costs. It’s all about making printing more efficient.

Automation and Scripting in Print Management

Aside from print scripting, PaperCut NG/MF provides extra automation and scripting tools. These include server commands and Web Services API. They help admins automate tasks and manage things better.

Server Commands

Server commands let admins do many tasks using text commands. They can, for example, make backups, sync users, and manage accounts. This feature gives them more power to handle tasks outside the usual ways.

Through server commands, admins can automate daily jobs. This makes managing printing smoother and saves them time. It also means they can work on bigger projects instead.

Using these tools, PaperCut NG/MF makes administering print systems easier and more efficient. All these features come with complete guides. So, admins can start using them without a hassle.
