While there may not be a single, clear-cut secret to success, we’ve been taught from an early age that collaboration will place us on the right path. It’s a concept that’s as valid in the playroom as it is in the boardroom. When individuals combine their insights to achieve a common goal, the results can be extraordinary.
For SMEs, the benefits of fostering a collaborative workforce are clear as day, which makes hurdles to effective collaboration, like outdated tech infrastructures, particularly frustrating. And it’s a frustration that many offices know all too well. In fact, a recent survey of employees of major European organizations found that just nine percent of respondents believe their organization has a “very effective” infrastructure for digital sharing and collaboration.
Fortunately, Samsung Printing’s multifunction printers (MFPs) feature convenient apps and solutions that make it easy for enterprises to install such infrastructures, and start collaborating on documents more efficiently.
Conquer the Cloud
Any examination of collaboration in modern workplaces should start with a discussion on the cloud, to which more and more businesses are migrating aspects of their operations. Included in Samsung Printing’s comprehensive Business Core 2.0 suite, Cloud Connector Core provides simple, secure access to the cloud for printing and scanning, without the need for an additional server.
The solution makes it possible for users to seamlessly scan to and print directly from the cloud, and includes support for a wide range of file types (including .JPG, .PDF, .TIFF and .XPS) and cloud services (such as Google Drive, Evernote, Dropbox, Hightail, OneDrive and Microsoft SharePoint Online).
The ability to seamlessly print and share documents without routing them through a PC offers offices more freedom to work flexibly and efficiently. This means that with Cloud Connector Core, members of a team collaborating on a project may print cloud-saved documents directly from the printer rather than scurrying back and forth to their workstations each time they need to execute a print job.
Print, Scan and Fax On the Go
Samsung MFPs were designed to support simple and secure mobile document management. The Samsung Mobile Print app takes this notion a step further, offering users more ways to seamlessly print, scan and fax on the go.
Samsung Mobile Print is supported by various mobile operating systems; allows you to print from a wide variety of sources, including your device’s photo gallery, your email and cloud drives; and also allows you to easily view a connected device’s toner status and product information.
The app’s versatility offers offices more freedom to manage digital documents effectively. For instance, an employee is on her way to a client meeting when a colleague requests that she scan some urgently needed files. If she’s connected to her office’s Samsung MFPs through the Samsung Mobile Print app, instead of plopping down in front of a connected computer to start scanning (and risking being late), she could quickly place the files on an MFP and continue on her way, launching the app on her smartphone as she waits for the elevator.
The app makes it easy for her to select the printer and scan the documents she’s just stored on it into a single PDF file. Once the scanned file is ready, she can email it directly to her colleague, just in time to catch her taxi.
Sharing is Caring
Lastly, Send Anywhere for Printer is another handy app designed to facilitate speedy document sharing between colleagues. The peer-to-peer file-sharing tool allows you to securely send files in real time via either a cellular or Wi-Fi connection, without the need for a server, logins, or registration.
Each time you share files, the app generates a six-digit code that automatically expires after 10 minutes. This unique code allows you to send multiple files (of various file types) via a diverse range of platforms including Android, iOS, Mac and PC.
The app makes it easy to send scanned documents to any mobile device, desktop, or even another printer.
The flexibility provided by Samsung Printing’s collaborative printing apps and solutions allows offices to work more openly and effectively, ultimately nurturing greater productivity.
