MPS Monitor integrates PaperCut data

MPS Monitor has announced the integration of PaperCut MF and Papercut NG print management data into its Analytics BI platform. The goal of this integration is to provide a feature-rich Business Intelligence and reporting environment to imaging dealers and Managed Print Services end customers who use the PaperCut MF and Papercut NG platforms for print management, job accounting, and secure printing.

MPS Monitor Analytics is a BI platform based on Microsoft’s Power BI Embedded technology. The solution enables users to access a full BI environment from within their MPS Monitor web portal, all without the need for separate accounts, different portals, or additional licensing. Users have access to a self-service BI experience with the ability to modify existing dashboards and reports, or they can create new ones without any coding or previous BI skills. 

A typical PaperCut MF instance produces historical, unstructured data related to all the aspects of managed print: type and size of documents printed, users and departments who print, cost of each single print job, the environmental impact of print activities and savings generated by the implementation of print policies, rules, and best practices. This dataset can now be merged inside the MPS Monitor Power BI Embedded database so that all the raw data generated by PaperCut MF is transformed into visuals with advanced filtering and slicing features, drill-through capabilities, and meaningful aggregations. 

The result is an increase in the ability to create insights and data visualisations, by leveraging the power of real-time data coming from devices to analyse user behaviours, identify and compare costs, analyse printing patterns, and implement optimisation strategies on each print fleet where PaperCut MF or Papercut NG is active.

Dealers and Managed Print providers can take advantage of these reporting and analytics capabilities to perform quarterly or monthly business reviews with their customers, who conversely may access Analytics reports and dashboards with their print usage data at any given moment, in real-time and from the cloud, by simply accessing the MPS Monitor Portal. The PaperCut MF and PaperCut NG integration does not need any additional software installation or specific setup, as it is powered by the same MPS Monitor DCA that is used to collect data and monitor printing devices. The functionality is available to all customers running the latest version of MPS Monitor DCA, at no additional cost. 

Nicola De Blasi, CEO of MPS Monitor said, “We believe that Business Intelligence can be a real game-changer for the imaging industry. Combining in a single platform the granularity and depth of data accumulated by a PaperCut server, the power and ease of use of Power BI Embedded, with the advantages of a cloud-only architecture, makes this integration an exceptional add-on to MPS Monitor’s overall value proposition. The benefit of this is even more compelling as it does not require any specific on-prem installation, nor any additional license cost. We expect that dealers and customers using both MPS Monitor and PaperCut will love being able to immediately enjoy the advanced BI and reporting on PaperCut, with zero extra effort.”
