The software supports various operating systems, including Windows, Linux, and macOS, so no matter what your organisation is running, our team of in-house service technicians will be able to get you up and running!



Once installed, BAC will access the PaperCut MF Admin Console to configure the software according to your organisation’s needs and wants. This will be specifically tailored to your organisation. This process includes setting up users, printers, and policies to establish a solid foundation for print management that suits you.

Adding Users:

BAC can add any user to the PaperCut MF system at any time. This includes manual entry, importing from existing directories, or integrating with LDAP for seamless user management. All you have to do is raise a ticket with one of our service technicians and your users will be added in a matter of hours.
