New full-featured and free mobile printing application boasts a simple setup process and robust set of features to make the dream of printing anywhere a reality.
SEOUL, Korea – May 5, 2015 – Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd., today launches Samsung Cloud Print™, a free-to-use cloud-based mobile printing solution that gives users the quickest and easiest way to print high quality documents securely from their mobile device to one or more printers located in their office.
Samsung Cloud Print™ solidifies Samsung’s leadership in the increasingly important global cloud printing market while also showcasing its innovative efforts to help customers embrace the growing trend of office workers using personal mobile devices in the workplace. Samsung Cloud Print™ not only simplifies the cloud print process through its unique setup and user recognition process, it also proves that high quality printing output can be achieved through the cloud. With this on-the-go cloud printing solution, users can print anywhere – in the office, at home, and outside.
“The Samsung Cloud Print™ is so easy to use and has the power to make a big difference in how work flows through an office,” said David SW Song, Senior Vice President of Strategic Marketing and Sales, Printing Solutions at Samsung Electronics. “Users can start to leverage the advantages of their smart mobile right away, freeing up their time and making everything they do smoother and more efficient.”
Samsung Electronics employees who already use Samsung Cloud Print™ at work found the service especially useful for situations like the following: “Have to urgently print documents while PC access is limited” (70.1%), “Need to print on the way to office or meeting” (51.2%), and “Left printed documents at office and have to reprint for a meeting held outside of the office” (13.5%). Also, they appreciate the service for the following reasons: “Not having to ask others to print for them” (54.5%), “No need to install an additional printer driver” (51.2%), and “Easy to use” (28.4%).
Samsung Cloud Print™ fully addresses industry concerns about the quality of modern cloud print technologies, with output quality that matches what is currently possible when printing from a PC. Supporting files up to 16 MB, Samsung Cloud Print™ utilizes unique rendering software based in the cloud to convert files into print-ready documents without any quality loss.
Easy to Install
App installation and printer pairing can be completed in just a few simple steps, even without a local network connection. The app can be downloaded from Samsung Galaxy Apps, Google Play, or the iOS App Store. Once installed, users simply input their phone number to complete the signup process, with no need to create an account. Then, the smartphone can be paired with a Samsung printer using secure NFC tag-and-go technology.
A New Range of Print Mobility
Samsung Cloud Print™ empowers users with a new range of mobile print and scan possibilities. Not only can users print from anywhere, they can do so more securely. For example, a file can be uploaded and stored in the cloud so that when they arrive at an office, they can identify the printer they want to use and quickly start the job, using NFC to securely pull the output. There is no need to interface with a PC.
Users can also scan to the cloud from most Samsung MFPs and access the file with the app. Simply scan the document and input the phone number registered with the Samsung Cloud Print™ app, and the image will be stored in the cloud, waiting to be printed.
And, it is now possible to control output using the Cloud Preview features and the ability to set various options like color/mono, paper size, and portrait/landscape rotation. This further saves time and reduces paper waste. Samsung Cloud Print™ also supports a full range of file formats commonly used in offices, including documents, spreadsheets, and images and presentation files.
Enhanced Cloud Service for Businesses
During the second half of this year, Samsung will launch additional cloud print solutions with enhanced security features for enterprises and SMBs.
The Samsung Cloud Print application can be downloaded free of charge from Samsung GALAXY Apps, Google Play or the iOS App Store. For more information about Samsung Cloud Print™, please visit www.samsungcloudprint.com.
