Business Goes Mobile

  1. 1. BUISINESS GOES MOBILE Make life easier for employees (and even customers) by enabling mobile devices to print.
  2. 2. “I can print that.” Despite the vision of paperless, borderless offices, most work processes still rely on documents. Quite often those documents need to be printed. That’s why people want to print from their mobile devices. Fortunately, the technology has arrived. Unfortunately, there are many options and the choices can be confusing. 2
  3. 3. Mobile print: 2 main categories Server-based system Cloud-based system • An organization must buy a dedicated server to run mobile print jobs through. •Once it’s set up by the IT team, users can simply send a file to a custom email address right from their smartphone or tablet. (App may or may not be necessary.) •The user then goes to any enabled printer on the network and releases the job. •It’s a closed, “in-network” system, which means you can control any security protocols. •This approach offers a little more mobility and may be more affordable because there’s no server to buy. •Print jobs are run through a provider’s cloud and the cost is based solely on usage. •The print network can extend beyond an organization’s network to include participating airports, hotels, coffee shops, etc. •Users download an app, which helps manage security and authorization. They can find the nearest printer using the app.
  4. 4. Shrinking IT budget doesn’t rule out added convenience Mobile printing may be a highly visible, highly appreciated service you can build into a cost-effective managed print services (MPS) solution.
  5. 5. “1.4 million patrons now have access to printing, copying, scanning, faxing and mobile printing using their library card. It’s better service and one-stop shopping.” Larry Finnegan, Director of Information Technology, Cleveland Public Library
  6. 6. What’s next? • In addition to the many employers are adding mobile print, Google has a cloud-based mobile print service targeted to consumers. • According to Gartner, more than 60% of mobile users have expressed the desire to print from their devices. Soon that desire will become an expectation. • Consider a plan to support your own mobile workers with mobile printing today that is scalable and secure. December 3, 2013 6
