How often have you wanted to print a document right from your mobile device? While reading emails on the commute to work or on vacation, how easy would it be to just press print and walk into the office and have it waiting for you. No need to turn on the computer, open the email application, scroll to re-find the email, and then press print. At Capital we know your time is very valuable, and we’ve partnered with Ricoh, HP and Konica Minolta to offer the best document solutions for our customers.
Mobile Printing is becoming increasingly popular in today’s busy lifestyle and it is becoming a need for organisations to operate more efficiently.
Did You Know?– 85% of smartphone users want to print from their mobile devices (IDC) – At least 50% of email users rely primarily on a browser or mobile device to access email, rather than a desktop client (Gartner Research) – By 2013, 80% of businesses will support a workforce using tablets (Gartner Research)
After a successful Open Day for the education sector at our Edinburgh office, we will be hosting a second Open Day on November 22 focused on mobile printing in the commercial sector.
But What Exactly is Mobile Printing?
Mobile printing is the action of printing a document from a mobile device such as a smartphone, iPad or laptop to an enabled printer/photocopier/MFD.
How does it work?
There are a range of mobile print solutions that allow you to print documents from your mobile device when and where you need them; this could be from your smartphone, iPad, tablet or laptop. These solutions make printing even more accessible for mobile workers because installation of special drivers or software is not required.
There are several ways to use mobile print depending on your mobile and print devices, including:
– AirPrint (Apple products)
– Email to the address assigned to your print device
– Hotspot Printing
Many manufacturers provide apps for the compatible devices:
