Securely print from your mobile
If COVID-19 has proved anything it’s that the employee mobility and the use of mobile devices in business, such as smartphones and tablets, has never been more prevalent or important. When deployed correctly mobile printing policies can:
Increase flexibility – it is a lot easier for employees to create and share information when and where it’s needed.
Improve productivity – most people understand how their own devices operate and can work more productively on them.
Raise employee satisfaction – people have more choice and can work in a way that suits them.
Reduce costs – there is no need to purchase and maintain workplace computers and less training is required.
Challenges can arise when integrating mobile printing solutions into an organisation’s network infrastructure, such as being able to track and manage the activities of mobile users. They can also cause vulnerabilities that expose confidential information and even the whole network to the risk of unauthorised access if they are implemented without considering security and governance under a comprehensive Print Security Policy.
Enabling mobility, enhancing productivity
As part of Sharp’s range of Mobile Applications and Managed Print Services, our Mobile Solutions let organisations make use of mobile devices and BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) policies without compromising network security, as well as ensuring mobile devices can centrally managed with ease. This gives people the freedom and flexibility to print information from their phones, tablets and laptops how and where they want, and securely share documents while they’re away from the office.
It means that you can:
Print hassle-free – simply select a document, preview and print whatever you need directly to Sharp printers from a supported mobile device.
Simplify scanning – hard-copy documents can be scanned to PDF on supported Sharp printers and photocopiers and viewed directly on mobile devices.
Collaborate seamlessly – easily share scanned files with other supported applications or save them in the cloud.
