Allows printing from any mobile device
to any networked printer regardless of brand.
Another recent development from EFI™ was its announcement of the European availability of PrintMe Mobile. This is a server-based enterprise software designed to enable printing from any mobile device to any networked printer regardless of brand. Simply put, PrintMe Mobile turns existing printers into Wi-Fi printers. EFI states that this removes the need to purchase new Wi-Fi or AirPrint-enabled MFPs (multi functional printers), and is scalable up to thousands of users across multiple wireless subnets. The company added that PrintMe Mobile is easy to deploy, use and manage, and supports five languages, including English, French, German, Italian and Spanish. The full version of PrintMe Mobile software is available from resellers throughout Europe and can be downloaded for a free 45-day trial.
The software enables secure enterprise level Wi-Fi printing for Android devices, Apple iPads and iPhones, as well as email-to-print capability for Symbian, BlackBerry and Windows mobile devices. EFI confirmed that IT departments can install PrintMe Mobile and deliver mobile printing on any printer connected to the network in as little as 30 minutes (view demo here).
"As the use of tablets continues to increase in the enterprise, employees are now expecting basic desktop-like functionality from their devices to enhance their productivity, and this includes the ability to print," said Louella Fernandes, associate director of print services and solutions at Quocirca Ltd., an independent research and analysis company with a primary focus on the European market. "The difference is that in Europe, there is a much greater mix of mobile operating systems in companies. PrintMe Mobile is ideally suited to in this situation because it provides a universal approach to printing across a mixed device fleet and multiple mobile OS platforms."
The latest version of PrintMe Mobile has been developed to provide secure Wi-Fi printing for employees or guests both inside and outside the corporate firewall. The enterprise software also has the ability to eliminate anonymous Wi-Fi jobs, allowing companies to save money by tracking mobile printing via Equitrac, PaperCut, and other print management software.
"PrintMe Mobile has been very well received in the United States and we are seeing similarly strong demand from Europe," said Georg Hollenbach, general manager of EFI Germany. "With PrintMe Mobile now in five languages, along with EFI's European world class support and distribution, we are confident we can meet the growing demand for mobile printing in Europe."
