EFI Introduces Solution for Enterprise Mobile Printing
The solution is printer- and device-agnostic, integrates seamlessly into a company’s network infrastructure without impacting network security policies, and supports both new and legacy printing infrastructure. With high-fidelity file conversion, PrintMe Mobile preserves fonts and layouts so that printed documents look like they should.
“We’ve addressed the two largest barriers to adoption for mobile device printing in businesses today—ease of deployment and ease of use,” said Toby Weiss, general manager of the Fiery business unit and senior vice president at EFI. “With PrintMe Mobile, IT departments can increase user productivity, reduce help desk headaches and achieve hero status with a growing number of mobile device users in businesses of any size. EFI is the only major mobile print provider that is exclusively focused on helping customers gain the maximum value out of their existing print infrastructure.”
PrintMe Mobile enables users to print based on their work style with three flexible ways of printing from mobile devices, without installing printer drivers. Options for printing include:
• Direct to Print: enables Apple and Android devices to print directly to any existing printer on the network through the company’s secure Wi-Fi network.
• Email to Print: allows users to print an email, including all attached files, by simply sending or forwarding an email.
• Release to Print: protects security and confidentiality by holding the print job until the user releases the file with a retrieval code. The user controls when and where the file is printed so personnel, financial or other sensitive documents don’t sit in the printer tray unattended.
PrintMe Mobile is built on proven EFI technologies. EFI first introduced a direct-to-print feature for Apple iPad and iPhones on its Fiery Driven™ printers and multifunction peripherals (MFPs) from Canon, Konica Minolta, Kyocera Mita, Ricoh and Xerox. EFI PrintMe, a cloud-based printing service, launched 10 years ago and has thousands of installations worldwide with millions of pages printed.
