How flexible is your company’s workforce? The head of Britain’s largest body of trade unions, the Trade Union Congress, recently stated, “Allowing people more flexibility in how and when they do their work makes them happier and more productive.” What is more, per a Flexjobs survey published last year, 66 percent of professionals think they would be more productive working remotely.
Clearly, workers everywhere are now looking for better work-life balance. Many want to escape the rigidity of the conventional 9am-6pm workday. If your company is now aiming to provide employees with flexible working options, it may be time to make sure your office is equipped with flexibility-enabling hardware – such as the Samsung MultiXpress SL-X3220NR.
What if you could access your office printer from your desk at home? Actually, with the MultiXpress SL-X3220NR, you can do exactly that. The device is compatible with mobile printing solutions such as Google Cloud Print, AirPrint and Samsung Cloud Print. That means you and your colleagues can print from anywhere they like, not just office PC workstations.
Mobile and cloud printing solutions provide an easy way for your team members to share their ideas and documents with office-based employees. With cloud solutions that do not require PCs or printer drivers, the entire experience is simple and fuss-free.
Employees can also scan documents directly to the Samsung Cloud Print or shared folders, distributing them to team members who are working remotely. Allowing team members working off-site to access important scans can help your workforce operate efficiently, no matter where individual members are based.
Shore Up Security
Some companies have reservations about hiring freelancers, and allowing employees to start work early or finish late.
Prudent IT admins, for example, might instinctively prefer to be on site at the same time as other employees, to ensure no unauthorized users gain access to office hardware and the sensitive data stored within.
TheMultiXpressSL-X3220NRoffers enterprise security-level user, document and network access control. It also provides authentication, print job protection, network security and protocols and hard disk protection. IT admins can also manage the MultiXpress SL-X3220NR’s control panel and set printing privileges.
The MultiXpress SL-X3220NR is also compatible with a wide range of flexibility-boosting software solutions, helping employees and administrators who are working on unconventional time schedules.
These solutions include the Samsung Mobile Print app, which lets users print, scan and fax from their mobile devices, and also access printer data and check on supplies. The Samsung Print Service tool, meanwhile, allows many Android users to print on Mopria-certified printers (including the MultiXpress SL-X3220NR) using their mobile devices. The app is easy to use and does not require users to install additional software or set up printer connections.
If IT admins need to work remotely or on flexible time schedules, they can use the MultiXpress SL-X3220NR in conjunction with the Fleet Admin Pro printer management solution, which lets admins receive monitoring reports by email and text message. Admins can thus stay informed when the MultiXpress SL-X3220NR is low on toner or has suffered a paper feed error. The Usage Tracker Core, meanwhile, emails admins PDF reports. These reports contain easy-to-understand data, so admins can check how many prints, copies, scans and faxes individual employees (or departments) are making.
The modern office is changing fast. And as employees’ job expectations change, providing flexibility can help companies attract and retain the very best workers around – both full-timers and freelancers.
No matter whether it is you who wants to work flexible hours, or your employees – or even both – modern companies will reap the benefits of devices like the MultiXpress SL-X3220NR, hardware designed to enable flexibility.
