They say that travel broadens the mind. But modern SMB decision-makers know that it can also broaden business perspectives – opening the door to new opportunities.
Per the Business Travel Show, 45 percent of SMBs say they expect to travel more this year than in 2017. Indeed, few businesses are immune to globalization trends. And most companies now recognize the importance of networking, international collaboration and customer outreach.
But, with more of your staff now on the road for longer, how can they stay connected when they are mobile – and how can you ensure employees are just as productive when they are out of the office?
Cloud, Mobile and Help from Home
In days gone by, business travel meant out-of-office staff were almost totally out of touch with proceedings back home.
Luckily, there are now many ways to keep work rates high when employees are away from the office – and most do not involve prohibitive, high-cost solutions. For a start, there is cloud printing. Samsung Printing’s cloud solutions include the Samsung Cloud Print app, which lets you manage a range of documents, images and more without a network or even a Wi-Fi connection. More options are also available from Samsung affiliate PrinterOn.
Mobile printing is another Samsung specialty. The Samsung Print Service tool lets Android smartphone users print from their phones.
With the SendAnywhere for Printer app for the Smart UX Center, you can send multiple files at once, in a range of sizes and formats, and across diverse platforms.
No matter if you need to send to Android or iOS devices, a Mac or a PC, or to another printer, SendAnywhere is up to the job. Files stay encrypted until intended recipients unlock them with a one-time, 6-digit code generated from your printer’s Smart UX Center – so the data your headquarters sends remains confidential at all times.
Nowadays, it is not just sales staff that travel – administrators and executives also need to be mobile. Fortunately, Samsung solutions let you keep an eye on your company’s printing operations, even when you are out of the office.
The Usage Tracker Core, part of the Business Core suite of SMB-friendly solutions, lets you audit your printing network in real-time. You can use it to check how many prints, copies, scans and faxes your company’s devices, employees or departments are making. PDF reports are emailed to you regularly (breaking down printer activity and costs incurred) for more effective monitoring when you are travelling.
With expansive Samsung technology, engineers and partners all over the world are now providing secure, easy-to-access public printing solutions that let users access modern electronic payment and online pay methods.
With the Smart Printing Kiosk, a service provided by several Samsung partners, you can print on public devices from mobile devices or USB sticks. You can also conduct transactions with prepaid cards, smartphone pay systems, credit/debit cards or QR codes. Some of South Korea’s biggest railways stations now have business lounges where customers can scan, fax and copy – paying with smartcards, credit/debit cards and smartphone pay. And a Chinese partner is providing secure public pull-printing solutions with online payment platforms like Alipay and WeChat Pay.
Low-cost tech solutions let you print and scan wherever you go, monitor your company’s print network at every step and stay up-to-date with the latest news from your business’ headquarters – making work-related travel a lot less daunting and expensive!
