According to the CRTC (Canadian Radio-television and Communications) two-thirds of Canadians own a smartphone, and close to 50 percent, a tablet. Mobile technology is becoming faster, more affordable, and more relevant, and has fast become the preferred method of communication in both the private and public sectors.
Alongside the increase in mobile device usage has come the demand for services and solutions, to help mobile employees work more efficiently and effectively outside the confines of the office. Mobile print technology satisfies the demand for on-the-go printing, using cloud technology which allows users to print from anywhere they have Internet and network access. While mobile printing is taking the business world by storm, over 85 percent of SMBs have yet to implement a mobile print strategy, risking security or regulatory compliance issues, and placing undue stress on print budgets and IT personnel.
If you haven’t done so already, here are a number of great reasons to start reaping the benefits of mobile printing in your organization.
1. Ease of use. Whether employees are working from home, out of town, or on the road, they leave behind all the modern conveniences of the office. Thanks to mobile print technology, tasks such as printing, copying, or document sharing are made easy with printing policies and solutions that help to keep mobile and in-house workers on the same page, while mobile print apps use GPS technology to help users locate the nearest qualified printer, helping to save time and money.
2. Increased productivity. IT personnel are free to work on other projects, relieved of the burden associated with setup, and implementing strategies that allow workers to onboard quickly and access printers from any Internet-enabled device.
3. Enhanced security. Data encryption, user authentications, and security standards set by IT help prevent the misdirection of documents and provide users greater control over which documents are printed or shared over the existing network.
4. Cost savings. Any organization with workers conducting business outside of the office can benefit from mobile print technology, through redirection of valuable IT resources, and increased productivity as workers spend less time looking for a secure method of printing and more time conducting business.
An effective mobile print strategy can help your business remain competitive, by giving employees the tools they need to print and share documents easily, and securely whether they’re on-site, or on the move. Contact us today to learn more.
