Mobile Device Printing

September 27, 2018

Major advancements in wireless and mobile technology over the last decade have not only allowed for innovative developments within the tech industry, but within the printing industry as well. Here is our guide all about how mobile technology is shaping the future of printing and how businesses can benefit from using it.

What is Mobile Device Printing?

Put simply, mobile device printing enables users to print documents from their mobile devices (such as their smartphones or tablets) with the touch of a button. Depending on your printer, connecting your printer to your mobile device is a simple task made possible by a protocol called Near-Field Communication (NFC).

Near-Field Communication and Printing

Nearly all of today’s printer manufacturers have implemented NFC onto their printers. With NFC, you don’t need to connect your mobile device and printer device to the same network. Instead, NFC effortlessly connects the two devices when they are in close proximity to each other so that you can print from your mobile device by simply holding it near the printer you wish to print from.

Benefits of Mobile Device Printing

Why print from a mobile device? As employees are increasingly using their phones to get more work done, the ability to print from a mobile device has become an important feature with printer technology. Some benefits of having mobile device printing include:

The ability to print from anywhere and from any device – without the need to rely on a desktop workstation, mobile device printing can allow employees to print at a moment’s notice.

Boosts worker productivity – without having to rely on a computer to complete their print jobs, the ability to print from their mobile devices could save employees time, and therefore, allow them to be more productive throughout the day.
