In an era where there is an ever increasing need to cater for BYO devices and a mobile workforce, there has to be an easy, secure printing solution that enables the user to print via any web enabled device, and release the job at a printer when and where it suits them. This is where our PrinterOn™ powered Cloud Printing solutions comes into play.
Cloud printing can be broken up into three major areas:
If you’re a hotel, airport, cafe or library, for example, you probably have a large client base that are busy professionals that are always on the go. At the moment, you cater for this market by providing “Hotspot” internet access. What if you could do the same with printing? What if you could get exposure on a public register as a venue that offers such a service? What if you could even charge people to print through PayPal? Ricoh call this form of cloud printing, Hotspot Printing.There are multiple ways you can use Hotspot printing.
a) Download the PrinterOn app for any iOS, Android or Blackberry device and use location services to find your nearest Hotspot location. Attach your file, send and authenticate using the PIN you receive via email.
b) Go to the specified URL for that device, or search on PrinterOns public directory. Attach your file, send and authenticate using the PIN you receive via email.
c) Send an email to the specified email address for that device, with file attached. Send and authenticate using the PIN you receive via email.
As a student, the ability to send your print job to the print queue from any device, anywhere, would alleviate a lot of stress of trying to get that research paper or assessment task printed. As an education institution it means that the demand for your workstations will be attenuated for students needing to print a job that was saved on another device or done at home. With the ability to integrate with all major cost recovery software, Cloud Printing solution is a must have for any education institution.
Organisations are moving towards a mobile workforce, so your printing solution needs to be mobile as well. With the massive adoption of smartphones and tablets the need for the enterprises to provide employees with the ability to securely print anywhere, anytime, is becoming a necessity. Increase your productivity with our Cloud Printing Solutions.
We recognise that one of the biggest challenges for IT managers is catering for these BYO devices whilst ensuring that security is maintained. An On-Premise Cloud Solution is deployed directly on-site. Software components are installed on enterprise servers and all processing and encryption of documents is done on site in the “Private Cloud” so data stays within the boundaries of your network, providing secure mobile printing for the enterprise.With the ability to integrate with all major print management solutions, there is no reason why organisations shouldn’t be adopting the ability to print on-the-go.
