Are your printers a help or a hindrance for your organisation?

Now is a good time to evaluate your printing solutions. Are your printing practices meeting the current and future needs of your organisation?

With the ever increasing prevalence of activity based working, distributed workforces and mobile workforces, the simple task of printing a document has become more complex that it ever needed to be.

For over 100 years Sharp, CR’s preferred print partner, has been a technology innovator. Their range of Sharp Multi-Function Devices (MFDs) incorporates a range of features and printing solutions to make the task of printing and document management easy and seamless.

Does your current technology provide any of the below technologies designed to make printing easier?

1. Apple AirPrint – Printing through AirPrint offers a quick and simple print experience for those customers with Apple mobile and tablet devices, overcoming the need to install any additional applications. Simply click print and your device will be visible to select and print. Our experience is telling us that support is increasingly being requested to fulfil printing from Apple mobile and tablet devices for senior and mobile staff within an organisation.

2. Mopria printing – Mopria printing expands native Android printing allowing direct printing to a device. Simply install the Mopria App on to your Android device and then when connected to the same Wi-Fi network, your print device will be visible to select and print to.

3. Google Cloud Print (GCP) – Google Cloud Print will allow you to print your files securely over the web from any location, whether you’re in the same room or on another continent. GCP will work on your phone/tablet or a traditional workstation and is the standard print mechanism for Google Chromebooks. Google Cloud print is increasingly used within education environments as the use of Google Chromebooks continues to grow. Simply enable the new GCP functionality on the print device and then share the printer through a Gmail account.

4. Email Print – Take advantage of the zero cost built-in features of the print device. This long standing feature will allow users to email the device and print an attachment directly to the Multi-Functional Printer (MFP). Ideal for employees working remotely who wish to print through the flexible email process. Printing direct or saving to document filing is supported as well as authentication through user control.

Next time you are printing a document or struggling to remotely print a document, ask yourself the question:

Do your current printers support the way your organisation works, or are they adding significant overheads and impeding the achievement of your organisations mission?
