Mobile Printing Apps Remove Document Workflow Roadblocks
“As a solutions provider, the issues we see with mobile workers are the ability to print in different offices or other environments, and to easily scan with their workflows in different environments, as well,” Josh explains. One very cool mobile print app is the Print@PrintByXerox, where you don’t have to be on the network to use it and no IT assistance or intervention is required. If you can email, you can print remotely – it’s that simple! Users simply open their mobile phone or tablet, then send an email to Print@PrintByXerox.com with documents they wish to print. They’re immediately emailed back a passcode. They open the app on any multifunction printer, type in that code, and the documents are immediately printed out.
While mobile printing has made strides as a tool, it’s not seen as much progress as policy. “80% of our customers are looking for mobile print solutions, but only about 10 or 15% really have any kind of mobile printing policy in place,” observes Justice. A mobile printing policy is essential for safe, reliable, affordable document management.
For companies trying to navigate extending their office print policies to their remote employees working out of their home offices, Xerox Home Print Tracker (which comes with the Xerox Workplace Cloud solution) is a fantastic resource that is secure, controlled, affordable, and easy to set-up. Anytime someone clicks ’Print’ on any brand of printer, whether it’s personally owned or company supplied, job details are recorded in the cloud, giving visibility of business-related printing ready for analysis. It’s user-installable and no printer registration is required!
