HP biedt het MKB Mobile Printing in de cloud

, ,

BARCELONA, Spanje, 27 februari 2013 – HP heeft vandaag op het World Mobile Congress aangekondigd dat haar Public Print Location (PPL) network(1) nu ook beschikbaar is voor het MKB. Met dit netwerk kan het midden- en kleinbedrijf (MKB) haar klanten een printservice in de cloud aanbieden zodat vanaf smartphone, tablet of laptop direct geprint kan worden.

De nieuwe HP Public Print Locations applicatie voor specifieke HP LaserJet en HP Officejet printers (2), stelt bedrijven zoals bijvoorbeeld tankstations en hotels in staat om hun printers te registeren op het HP PPL netwerk. Hierdoor kunnen hun klanten op een veilige manier, door middel van een toegangscode, direct printopdrachten verzenden vanaf hun device naar de printer in het deelnemende bedrijf.

“Mobiele devices worden steeds meer gebruikt voor alledaagse diensten, zoals printen op afstand”, zegt Todd Gregory, Manager, Marketing en Communication, HP. “Het HP PPL netwerk herdefinieert de manier waarop MKB’ers de cloud kunnen gebruiken, door zowel diensten met toegevoegde waarde aan te bieden als meer traffic te generen naar hun locaties”.

HP recently celebrated the extension of its PPL network to more than 30,000 sites worldwide, and that it has surpassed 6 million downloads of HP ePrint apps, with the number of people printing to the PPL network doubling every six months. (3)

Users can access the HP PPL network and geolocate the nearest location to submit jobs from the HP ePrint Service app or by logging on to www.hppublicprint.com. To conserve resources for the business and provide security for a submitted print job, a release code, provided upon job submission, must be entered by the user via the printer’s touch panel to initiate printing from the cloud.

HP is exhibiting its joint offerings and corresponding live demos, including this latest solution, for Mobile World Congress 2013 attendees at HP Booth Hall 7, Stand 7D112 at Fira Gran Via through Feb. 28.
