PaperCut Buyers Lab

Buyers Lab (BLI) Reports and Awards 2016

Buyers Lab (BLI) have released a June report on PaperCut MF (16.1 at the time of press). The report is available for resellers to include in quotes, tenders, and customer enquiries.

Twice a year, BLI gives special recognition to the hardware and software products that provided the most outstanding performances in their unique evaluations. Software solutions undergo an in-depth, hands-on review focusing on key attributes and how well the products stack against leading competitors. Pick winners rise above the competition in key areas such as value, feature set, ease of use, administration, hardware compatibility, software integration, security and support. Software solutions earn an overall rating based on a five-star scale, and Pick contenders are culled from those that earn the highest ratings.

The sixteen-page report covers the following:

  • Features/productivity
  • Usability
  • IT Admin / Security
  • Support / Training
  • Value

The good news is Buyers Lab think that PaperCut version 16 delivers all the functionality most organisations will likely need with the most user-friendly admin UI they have seen in an output management platform.
