Businesses are rapidly adopting the Internet of Things (IoT) and Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) trend in their offices. The boundaries between different digital devices and those between digital and analog become more blurred than ever – evolving toward IT convergence. These mobile trends are initiated by the need for a smart and convenient office setting. Printing environment is no exception. Today, smart mobile printing environment is becoming the norm in numerous industries, even in relatively conservative ones like finance, healthcare, and education.
Samsung is at the forefront of these trends, using its leadership across an array of advanced technologies to merge mobile with printing to help businesses create smart mobile offices.
Bringing Mobile Trends to Printing Environment
Samsung Mobile Print App
A prime example is how the Samsung Mobile Print App can make printing easy and less burdensome. It gives you the ability to print, fax, scan, and even monitor printers on the go, without a complex printer installation.
When it comes to document management, each industry carries different need and in finance industry, flexibility and security are the two main priorities. Even right before an important meeting, users can print complex financial documents with the Samsung Mobile Print App, sending the command from their smartphone to the nearest printer. And with secure authentication, users will not have to worry about their printed documents missing and misplaced. It’s seamless and smart, and with no compromise on corporate security.
Samsung Printing Solutions also has a range of convenient and advanced solutions made possible with its tag-and-go NFC printing technology. With NFC touch-to-authenticate technology, users can simply tag the mobile device to the printer and verify their document ownership without having to purchase an ID card reader.
Healthcare industry is one of the many industries where professionals are making use of the secure pull printing feature and greatly appreciate the NFC printing technology. As patient records are increasingly digitized, security is becoming paramount. Hospitals are busy places, and it’s easy to imagine a situation where a doctor sends confidential records to print and then gets called away on emergency before he can pick them up. This is where NFC print technology shines, because even after a print job is sent to the printer, it will wait until the right person arrives at the machine to authenticate using their smartphone.
Android based Smart UX center
And then there’s the Android-based Smart UX Center. It represents the merge lane that brings the smartphones, personal computers, and printing together. There’s no need to move back and forth from your computer to your printer anymore because you can get it all done from the tablet mounted right on the printer. With Smart UX Center, you can have more enjoyable printing experience with touch and slide UX and practical apps and widgets.
Workbook Composer app is one of the useful Smart UX Center apps. Education industry, where instructors and students need diverse type of documents, ranging from lesson plan, group project presentation, and quiz/tests finds this app very helpful.
For instance, the Workbook Composer app allows teachers to make course and test materials easily, even for those who are not skilled in making digital documents. Teachers can simply mark the hard copy and scan it, and the marked parts are automatically converted to an editable document. They can choose to print the document right away or edit the document from the Smart UX Center. They can even send the file to their PC to use later. This app is useful for students, too, letting them scan and print only what they need from their textbooks. It saves both time and money.
Continuing Samsung’s Mobile Printing Leadership through Adoption and Advancement
Samsung Printing Solutions is strengthening its mobile printing leadership by cooperating with other innovative firms who have technological expertise. During the second half of last year, Samsung Electronics acquired PrinterOn, a pioneer in mobile cloud printing solutions, to reinforce Samsung’s mobile ecosystem and deliver enhanced solutions.
Furthermore, Samsung has realized its own smart office environment with mobile printing. Samsung Electronics employees use their mobile phones to access the Samsung intranet and print files quickly and easily on the go. Mobile printing enables seamless workflows within Samsung Electronics office, and employees are working smartly and quickly, without depending on PC.
Samsung will continue to expand its mobile printing leadership and will fully realize the IoT and BYOD trend in your office.
