The cloud revolution has taken hold of the business world, changing the way most modern companies operate. And beginning with Samsung Cloud Print, an app that debuted at CeBIT 2014 in Hannover, Germany, Samsung has pioneered a range of solutions that allow businesses to make greater – and safer – use of the cloud.
The app was groundbreaking, and with an iOS version also released, it allowed a wide range of business users to access device-agnostic cloud solutions.
Samsung Cloud Print allows users to manage a whole range of documents, images and other files – without requiring a network or even a Wi-Fi connection. For companies whose employees often find themselves on the move, such cloud options provide a powerful boon.
What’s more, Samsung Printing Solutions’ cloud and public printing solutions are not limited to the functions of this app.
Samsung affiliate PrinterOn, for instance, has a range of dedicated cloud-based solutions. No matter what size or type of enterprise you run, PrinterOn has a solution geared to meet your company’s needs.
Advent of Adaptability
PrinterOn’s cloud printing solutions are designed with flexibility at heart. Modern business owners know that staff who can work with versatility and cross-platform are more likely to generate success. Traditional office document management systems require users to connect to a network for their printing needs, or use Wi-Fi connections. Being on the cloud, however, eliminates such needs, and allows you to go network- or Wi-Fi-free.
Other flexibility-boosting PrinterOn services include email printing via the GoPrint Mobile solution. This allows users to send emails with attachments to a printer’s unique address. All documents sent as email attachments are processed automatically by the printer, added to the print queue and are then ready for release – with no further user input required.
With mobile apps for both Android and iOS, users can make use of simple search functions and print workflows. Alternatively, users can upload documents via a customizable web portal URL. The PrintWhere Driver, meanwhile, provides a file-to-print workflow that is compatible with Windows-enabled PCs and tablets.
PrinterOn’s Embedded Agent software package, meanwhile, provides plug-and-play printing options for businesses and public printing locations.
PrinterOn offers three unique packages, all of which offer a range of innovative cloud solutions designed to meet companies’ diverse business needs.
The Hosted service is deployed via the PrinterOn Cloud, and allows for PayPal integration, while Express offers hybrid cloud solutions and on-premise deployment.
A third solution, Enterprise, offers advanced pull printing, queue management and multi-server deployment. Furthermore, it offers on-premise, hybrid cloud and 3rd-party cloud deployment functions.
Cloud and mobile printing may offer business users the opportunity to conduct business in a whole new set of locations, but without comprehensive safeguards, their usefulness would be limited. That is why security issues are firmly at the top of the agenda for both Samsung and its PrinterOn operations.
Samsung Cloud Print makes use of sophisticated encryption to safeguard your data, with industry-standard 256-bit encryption on all connections. Regular updates to the app ensure you get up-to-date protection against all the latest threats.
And with Samsung Cloud Print, all communications between devices and the cloud make use of one-time tokens, which require user authentication for activation.
Meanwhile, PrinterOn’s sophisticated pull printing solutions ensure that only users – and the people they want to share documents with – can gain access to a print job.
The PrintValet keypad provides a secure release capability for all printers. Remote Release allows users to submit and release documents from their phones and tablets via mobile apps. For desktop users, a simple release client called PC Release does the trick, while the Printer Interface can release documents directly through an embedded user interface.
There can be no doubt that cloud solutions have begun a takeover of the way that just about everybody does business. Tech giant Microsoft has invested a total of US$3 billion in cloud computing solutions in Europe alone, while the Seattle Times has spoken of a new “global cloud arms race.”
Getting into the cloud game early has provided Samsung with a major headstart, allowing for workflows that dispense entirely of network and Wi-Fi requirements. Modern enterprises can now take to the cloud – with fuss-free solutions that inspire confidence.
