If you’ve read our series The Efficient Office, you know we value workflows that make your office run smoothly and effectively for all of your employees. And if you have a mobile workforce, like many companies with sales staff on-the-go, you should seriously consider implementing cloud-based printing options.
Most of us have experienced the frustration of finding a document or website on our phone or tablet, emailing it to our desktops, logging in, fetching the email, and only then being able to print our document. Mobile printing via the cloud eliminates every step between seeing something you need to print, and printing it.
Cloud-based printing works on all of your devices, desktop included, without complicated setup or management.
Cloud-based printing with Xerox
For small operations, Xerox makes a range of printers and multi-function machines that are compatible with Google’s secure cloud printing service, making it easy to get up and running quickly. These printers can print directly from Google documents, which means your team can collaborate on a document from different locations, print it, and be ready for that mission-critical meeting with your client.
Xerox also offers a complete mobile cloud printing product, called Xerox Mobile Print, which can print documents from Microsoft Word, Excel, and PowerPoint, and can also print PDFs. Xerox Mobile Print can be deployed behind your firewall for added security if your business warrants it.
These solutions make it easy for your team to print directly from Dropbox and other cloud storage solutions, as well as print images taken from their phones, useful for businesses doing inspections and other types of on-site work with their clients and customers.
Xerox Mobile Print is designed to work with any brand of printer, and its emphasis on simplicity makes using the service a breeze, with both app and email printing options.
Securing your documents is also made simple. Documents can be assigned secure PINs, and pull printing will keep your job on the print server until you’re physically at the printing device to release it. This way, your sensitive documents are never left unattended.
No matter what your team needs to print, and no matter where they are when they need to print it, mobile printing from the cloud means you always have the resources you need, right when you need them.
