Mobile printing from a public cloud environment
With the proliferation of electronic media, information is available at any time via PC, laptop or smartphone. In the digital age, there are many situations in which the printing of data is needed – and often on the spot:
- You are in a hotel and need to print a voucher.
- You are on a business trip and need to print out a contract in the office of the client.
- You want to print a receipt at a hotspot.
It is often not possible to quickly and spontaneously print documents from a smartphone or tablet PC, because a printer driver is not installed or an available printer in the vicinity cannot be activated.
This is where mobile printing comes in. The solution provides users not only with access but also with the printing of information – no matter what, when and where they want to print.
The membership of DEVELOP in the ‘Cloud Printing Alliance’ of Cortado AG now enables the mobile printing of documents from any mobile device on any WLAN-enabled DEVELOP printing system.
What is the Cortado Workplace?
