Dubai, United Arab Emirates - Sunday, March 29th 2015 [ME NewsWire]
DuGone are those days when we wanted to print a document from our smartphone, but had to dismiss the idea because it seemed far too unrealistic. Thanks to the concept of mobile printing, employees can now print anything from anywhere, on the go, making them more productive.
Did you know…?
Only one out of four SMEs in the GCC has a facility to print from a smart device.
However, according to a recent survey carried out by Canon Middle East among 1,000 Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) throughout the GCC, only one out of four businesses has a facility to print from a smart device.
Mobile printing empowers business owners, managers and employees to print on the go. With the help of cloud printing, it connects all web connected electronic devices to mobile printers that can access the cloud and/or the web. Simply put, mobile printing allows anyone to print by way of the Internet no matter where they are. This ability holds significant value as the world of business is moving towards mobile solutions.
According to experts at Canon, employees are keen to explore the concept. However, the conventional method of clicking that print button from the desktop and lack of awareness about the actual advantages of mobile printing is hindering people to warm up to the idea.
Also from among the organizational challenges are: How do you manage enterprise printing from many different types of mobile platforms, manage users, track both users and mobile devices, and flexibly address diverse mobile and cloud printing requirements? At the same time, how do you reduce printing costs while improving enterprise-printing efficiency, and ensuring information and document security?
To address this, Canon offers a number of mobile print solutions that help deliver simple and secure ways to print and scan from mobile devices, while allowing more secure printing from almost anywhere using a cloud service.
