The Easy Way to Print from Your Mobile Device
Today’s business environment is becoming increasingly mobile. Frequent travel, working between multiple locations, and virtual offices bring with them new demands for on-the-go access to files and documents. Smart phones, tablets and laptops meet the need for digital access to content, but digital access is often not enough. The mobile workforce is looking to transform their entire office into a mobile experience, and requires print and scan capabilities that mirror the flexibility of their mobile devices.
How to print On-The-Go
There are many ways to go about printing from your phone but its difficult to figure out which way works best for you. Ricoh for instance has a whole app dedicated to mobile printing. Their app “Mobile Print” enables mobile users to simply and conveniently print documents, web pages, and images on demand from their Apple and Android smart phone and tablet devices to select Ricoh MFPs and Printers. As an added feature, users can scan files and images from Ricoh MFPs to their mobile devices. The Ricoh Mobile Print app puts you in control of your document imaging, eliminating the need to carry cumbersome printed files on the chance you need them. Additionally this app eliminates the hassle and lack of security associated with emailing files to someone connected to a network in order to have them printed for you. Mobile Print empowers your workflow while giving you the confidence in knowing you are prepared for anything and able to access and print your important documents from almost anywhere. There are three easy steps to using Mobile Print. First connect your mobile device to the same Wi-Fi network as the Ricoh MFP or Printer you will be using to print. After that use the Mobile Print app to open the document, image or web page you wish to print. Lastly Select the device you wish to print to, set your preferences and press Print.
