Mobile is far from the novelty it used to be as portable devices have become a staple in business environments. To stay competitive, most companies are embracing the flexibility mobile offers. It’s common for Minneapolis-based companies to require their employees to use mobile. It is only natural printing is a progressive step in mobile applications.
Mobile printing is exactly as it suggests – it is the ability to print from any portable device, including smartphones, laptops, tablets, and other devices. It uses cloud-based tech which means it’s highly accessible, flexible, efficient, and convenient. Not to mention how on-the-go print options do wonders for organizational productivity. These benefits are enticing enough, however, here are some other advantages.
Mobile printing affords companies the opportunity to reduce the number of printers they need to keep operational in their offices. Other financial benefits include eliminating wasteful “just in case” print jobs. Rather than print out documents ahead of time and never needing them, employees can plan to print on an as-needed basis from wherever they are working. Many mobile printing options are low-cost or free.
Reduces burdens on IT workload
Using mobile printing applications means companies can relieve their IT staff from being burdened with traditional print issues. If people are printing off-site a good percentage of the time, this allows for maintaining fewer printers and results in less repairs thanks to minimized wear and tear. With employees having the flexibility to print on-the-go, IT staffers also no longer have to worry about security issues associated with decentralized printing processes since cloud-based applications allow print processes and protocol to become streamlined.
Positive effects on customer service
Many industries directly interact with customers who may need to print documents, such as service agreements or contracts, while doing routine business or attending meetings. Other customers might want to print off information documents to take home and peruse at their leisure. Offering customers a mobile print option is a nice perk, not to mention convenient because it saves them time and money, along with limiting frustrations of needing documents they can’t otherwise access.
