Sharp unveils cloud-based print management platform PaperCut Hive

Sharp UK has announced the availability of a new cloud-based print management platform, PaperCut Hive. Designed for organisations transitioning to a cloud-first or serverless environment, the platform integrates directly with both multifunction devices and printer firmware, letting users print, copy, scan and fax with minimal fuss.

With business owners looking to adopt a hybrid-working style as they reintegrate back into offices, many will be looking for cloud-based solutions that can support a workforce spread across remote and office-based settings.

PaperCut Hive offers straightforward printing processes with its simple set-up and onboarding process. The low-cost platform also lets users take control, allowing them to print from any of their devices (Chromebooks, Android, macOS, iOS and Windows) to any printer. 

George Davies, Product Marketing Manager for Software & Solutions at Sharp UK said, "We understand that many businesses are looking to put the framework in place to support their widespread workforces as the return to the office begins. Cloud-based solutions are increasingly popular as they can provide equal functionality to remote and office-based workers. We believe PaperCut Hive is exactly the type of low-cost solution that businesses will look to as they build their cloud management platforms."

The platform gives users peace of mind with a range of security features. PaperCut Hive users can be confident that documents, and the information that they contain, are safe with secure printing features such as access control, secure print release and watermarking with digital signatures. 

The software also gives users control over their usage and expenditure, offering waste reduction features that provide users with the choice of reminders to help save on paper, toner and ink wastage – helping to shrink the organisation's environmental footprint and costs.
