Using a Ricoh MFD with PaperCut

If you are using a PaperCut enabled Ricoh MFD (Multi-Function Device) for the first time, you will want to associate your BCIT ID card with your account. This will allow you to login by simply tapping your card near the card reader located on the right-side of the operator panel.

You will need to login in order to access printing, copying, scanning and fax features. You will only need to associate your card once, but you may need to repeat these steps if you are issued a new BCIT ID card in the future.

If you do not have your card, you can still login by typing your usual BCIT login credentials using the on-screen keyboard.

This article will explain how to associate your BCIT ID card and then login and access the features of the MFD.
