As more companies and workers embrace mobile technology as a part of their daily business practices, the need for a mobile print solution is becoming more of a concern. While there are questions and needs for both company IT departments and end-users, there is no question that businesses need to implement a mobile print strategy.
Let’s examine a few of the concerns of both IT professionals and mobile workers when implementing a mobile printing solution.
IT professionals’ concerns regarding implementing a mobile printing strategy center around the time and resources needed to set-up and manage a system. Security is also a main concern, especially any security risks involving proprietary information. Questions also arise around specific or unique applications and print driver support.
While these are all valid concerns, today’s mobile printing solutions address these issues directly. A good mobile print solution will alleviate the need for device specific applications and unique print drivers. Most offer built-in support for multiple devices and operating systems as a standard feature. Security is also built in which eliminates the need to deal with third party software. Because these concerns are addressed within the platform, IT time and resources needed to manage a mobile print solution are minimal.
Most end-users are concerned about the printing capabilities offered by their device. Another concern is for document file format support. As mobile use has continued to grow, more mobile print management companies are expanding support for MFPs, printers, and mobile devices. All offer support across multiple device platforms and operating systems.
In addition to print capabilities, most mobile print solutions offer scanning, document sharing and management, and cloud storage and program support depending on your MFPs functionality. A large variety of file types can be printed including MS Word, PowerPoint and Excel, along with PDF, TIFF, BMP, XPS and HTML emails and rich text documents.
