EFI Adding Apps to PrintMe Mobile Printing Technology

October 21, 2010
FOSTER CITY, CA—Oct. 21, 2010—EFI, a world leader in customer-focused digital printing innovation, today announced the next generation of its PrintMe mobile printing solution that empowers mobile workers to print from any Internet-enabled device, including laptops and mobile platforms such as iPhone, iPad, BlackBerry and Google Android devices.
Launched nine years ago today, EFI PrintMe enabled mobile workers to upload their documents to the PrintMe cloud and securely print them on any PrintMe-enabled printer. The solution has thousands of placements worldwide, with millions of pages printed, making it easy to print on the go, whether it is guest printing in an enterprise, printing from a hotel room or airport, or just using a mobile device on the street. 
Now, with the launch of the next-generation PrintMe mobile printing solution, EFI has enhanced the capabilities of PrintMe’s “cloud aware” printers with powerful document conversion capabilities, unique smartphone apps, a new print driver, and SDK’s for developers who wish to add printing capabilities to their applications. The PrintMe iPhone application will be available in early November, enabling users to print airline boarding passes, Web pages, photos and more from their iPhone, iTouch or iPad. The application for BlackBerry phones will be available in December.
“Long before the explosion of smartphones and the current buzz about cloud-based services, EFI brought to market a cutting-edge mobile printing technology that has enabled millions of pages to be printed,” said Toby Weiss, general manager of Fiery and senior vice president, EFI. “Now, we’re bringing this same functionality to business professionals who want to print from any application, on any mobile device, to any printer wherever they are. There’s no need to buy special printers or wait years for these features to become available, since PrintMe works with any PrintMe-enabled printer today.”
PrintMe technology has caught the attention of EFI’s long-standing OEM partners. Xerox recently announced a portfolio of mobile print offerings, including PrintMe, as part of its mobile print portfolio.
“As a long term partner with EFI, we intend to leverage PrintMe technology to extend our portfolio of Xerox Mobile Solutions,” said Elizabeth Fox, vice president, Solutions Business Unit at Xerox Corporation. “EFI’s cloud-based printing will benefit many Xerox customers who are increasingly utilizing their mobile devices for their everyday work.”
