We’ve written a lot about how mobile printing is critical for modern smart work environments. But do we walk the talk?
In fact, Samsung Electronics’ employees already enjoy great mobile printing experiences via their mobile intranet. Mobile printing is the IT convergence of printing, mobile, and cloud technologies, and we are now working smarter than ever before.
Let’s take a look at how David Lee, a product marketing manager at Samsung Electronics headquarters, uses mobile printing at work.
How Do Samsung Electronics Employees use Mobile Printing?
Mobile printing helps to create smart, fast, and reliable work environments – the fundamental conditions generally required by enterprises like Samsung.
With Mobile Printing, David Lee Works SMART and FAST
It’s 8:50 a.m. on Monday, and David hurriedly arrives at the office to be on time for his 9 a.m. management meeting. Instead of going to his desk first to print the presentation files from his PC, he heads directly to the meeting room. As he walks down the hallway, he logs into his Samsung intranet on his mobile and prints the files at the nearest printer. The intranet, which Samsung Electronics employees have used for email checking, document approvals, and employee profile browsing, now allows them to print from their mobiles as well. It is unbelievably easy and convenient! It is now 8:53 a.m., and the documents are already in his hands. With on-the-go mobile printing, David gains a few precious minutes to go over the document, giving him an opportunity to get fully ready for the discussion.
Mobile printing enables seamless workflows.
We have internalized mobility within our system, so we no longer depend on PCs.
Mobile Printing Goes Hand in Hand with Data Security
At Samsung Electronics, the security of internal information is a primary concern. And mobile printing enables secure printing and management of documents through an authentication feature.
Since Samsung has many separate buildings within its work site, employees had to carry laptops or printed documents to attend meetings at different buildings several times a day. This was inconvenient and even created risk of data breach, if anyone happens to lose a document along the way. David, however, prints files with his mobile phone at the office where he is visiting, using any of the printers nearby after initializing a secure authentication process. It’s convenient and secure at the same time.
Samsung Electronics Employees’ Top Reasons for Using Mobile Printing
1. Ability to print without a PC when visiting different Samsung buildings and offices.
2. Ability to print from a nearby printer urgently
* Intention to continue using mobile printing: ★★★★☆ (4.01/5.00)
David and his coworkers are experiencing small yet groundbreaking changes through mobile printing. “An innovative company that pursues smart living should also provide a smart office environment,” said David. “My work requires me to visit many other Samsung electronics offices and buildings, and mobile printing has changed the way I work. I can now work efficiently anywhere I go, whether I am at Samsung’s R&D Center or at Samsung Electronics office.”
