Do your employees spend most of their days sitting at their workstations? If so, your company could be set to miss out on its most highly valued business goals.
According to a recent report by AXA, a staggering 98 percent of employers see a globally mobile workforce as “important to achieving their objectives,” with over a third believing mobility to be “critical.”
Tom Wilkinson, CEO of AXA’s global healthcare team, notes, “Businesses that take a global outlook can flex their operations to take advantage of growth markets – wherever they may be.”
Office technology is often a major mobility roadblock. Modern workers want the freedom to come and go as they please, and to work from their mobile devices. They do not want to have to trudge all the way to their desktops every time they need to print a document. Fortunately, with Samsung, companies can now explore what it means to let staff members throw off the shackles of mobility-restricting IT – and go truly mobile.
Get it On
For many companies, mobile printing represents the last piece of the mobility jigsaw. Mobiles and tablets have become powerful enough to function as primary work devices. But printing networks are often another story. Fortunately, Samsung affiliate PrinterOn’s wide variety of mobile and remote printing solutions meet the needs of forward-thinking organizations.
With its Enterprise, Express and Hosted offerings, PrinterOn solutions help tackle a range of mobility issues. Enterprise allows larger companies to manage their complex workflow requirements, enabling secure print, tracking and management for print workflows on both mobile devices and desktops. It functions as an on-premise solution, but with optional hybrid cloud and third-party cloud deployment, it is also extremely flexibility.
The Express edition, meanwhile, offers affordable, easy-to install mobile printing, with quality, security and flexibility – all packaged in an exceptionally user-friendly format.
The third version, Hosted, is designed for public printing locations, such as hotels and universities, allowing students, staff and guests to access simple, secure mobile cloud printing.
Other products, like PrinterOn’s Enterprise Cloud Print, let businesses start using managed cloud print services. Thanks to this service’s cloud enterprise print infrastructure management, IT admins can leave time-consuming deployment, provisioning, management, scaling, upgrading, notification, support and maintenance issues to PrinterOn – and instead focus on more pressing matters.
In many cases, all you need to unleash the power of mobile printing could already be at your fingertips. The Mopria Print Library-certified Samsung Print Service (SPS) plugin comes as standard on many handsets, and Android users running the KitKat OS or subsequent versions can download it as an app.
Compatible with Android, Apple and Windows devices, as well as cloud printing standards such as Google Cloud Print, the plugin has proven a hit in multiple industries.
Indeed, companies are using the SPS plugin to do all sorts of things – from printing shipping labels via mobile phone to printing auto service customer invoices and receipts from tablet PCs.
The age of business mobility has only just dawned. That is why Samsung has left plenty of room for mobile enterprise expansion. With the Smart UX Mobile app, users can operate a range of 2- and 4-line printers from their smartphone touchscreens, adding multiple layers of functionality both to conventional devices and to mobiles.
But this app is just the tip of the iceberg. Samsung’s Mobile Print Software Development Kit allows third-party developers to explore further expansion possibilities. And the company is also working on mobile-authenticated pull-printing schemes for conventional devices, as well as iOS and MDM-compatible versions of the Smart UX Mobile app.
No to Neglect
Companies can no longer afford to simply neglect mobile printing. Fortunately, with Samsung, getting started with mobile printing is straightforward. Moreover, Samsung’s mobile printing solutions often do not necessitate hardware expenditure, so are notably cost-effective.
Global CEOs rarely agree about much, but it seems they are in accord about one thing: the need to provide staff with total, restriction-free mobility is now pressing. Mobile printing can help provide this – and a powerful set of Samsung solutions can form the foundation of an effective, company-wide mobility drive.
