Lincolnshire, Ill., August 31, 2011 -- PaperCut Software International, a print management software development firm with clients in more than 100 countries, and Nelnet Business Solutions (NBS), a leading provider of campus commerce services for higher education, have partnered to help their mutual university clients achieve new efficiencies through the integration of technology and streamlined business operations.

PaperCut and NBS have created an integrated solution that allows their clients to provide a fast and easy way for students to pay for their print needs, while reducing institutional costs through the use of NBS’s secure, compliant payment gateway.

“Nelnet is excited to partner with PaperCut to simplify and improve processes on campus,” said Kevin Wiley, COO of Nelnet Business Solutions. “PaperCut’s powerful print management solutions coupled with Nelnet’s flexible, electronic payment options will help schools save money and increase convenience for students, all while being more efficient and environmentally responsible.”

Excess printing incurs huge costs on educational institutions in both hidden and explicit ways. By providing features such as Student Quota management and Charge for Printing in conjunction with campus commerce solutions such as Commerce Manager™, PaperCut™ and NBS have enabled a more cost effective, eco-friendly approach to printer control and management for both staff and students.

“It’s important for educational institutions to closely manage printing costs whilst still providing students the ability to print on demand”, said Chris Dance, PaperCut Director. “With the ease of implementing solutions like this, we’re seeing a proactive commitment from these organizations to tackle the rising costs and environmental impact of printing. As a result of this partnership, schools can see immediate benefits and realize significant savings.”
