Printing from mobile devices is never the cakewalk it’s supposed to be. It can be hard enough just on a tiny home network, let alone in a large-scale enterprise print environment. As a result, the question for IT departments who are seeking to implement enterprise mobile printing becomes: How can I allow my employees to print from a mobile device in a way that’s reliable, simple and secure?
Many mobile printing solutions promise to deliver on all these counts, but they don’t measure up in reality. That’s usually because they try to introduce mobile printing capabilities through a specific, rather than a holistic, approach. Which is to say, they might enable mobile printing, but not necessarily in a way that suits your print environment, or your users’ behavior. That invariably leads to complications and frustration—the very opposite of what your guests and employees should experience when printing from a mobile device.
With Printer enterprise Mobile Printing solution, your mobile, BYOD and guest users enjoy effortless mobile printing that’s as easy as tapping the “Share” button or sending an email. Because that’s all it takes to print from a mobile device once you’ve implemented it!
This works great for mobile employees who are equipped with company-issued mobile devices. There’s absolutely no extra software to install: no drivers, apps or custom OS tweaks. When they select a file and tap the “Share” button on their device, they can then choose a nearby Printer network printer as their print option. The print job will be sent directly to the print queue. It doesn’t matter where in the enterprise print environment these mobile users happen to be located, or if they’re running Android, iOS or some other mobile-optimized OS. Using Printer, mobile printing is almost easier than printing from a workstation, resulting in far fewer frantic calls to the service desk asking for help printing from a mobile device.
