solutions for a mobile environment
Solutions for a Mobile Environment

The basic mobile printing products simply focus only on the user’s ability to print a job e.g.. send a job via email to a printer or AirPrint – one dimensional solution

Other products focus on the owner of the printing equipment:

  • Security - Who do I want to allow to print via mobile?
  • Management - How will I charge for the print jobs?
  • Reports - Track and generate usage reports
  • How will I integrate it into my already managed print environment?

…but, why is mobile printing a challenge?

No actual need to print, as viewing on the phone is okay!

I don’t know how to print from my mobile phone

No access to a printer or printer is not supported

Not all files I need to print are supported

Well, it’s just too hard!!!

My phone is too old
