15 million reasons to love Mobility Print

When we launched Mobility Print, we were confident we had something on our hands that could really improve how users print remotely from their own devices.

Nearly a year and a half on – and 15 million print jobs later – it’s exceeded our wildest expectations.

Read on to learn how Mobility Print’s empowering smarter printing.

Simple BYOD printing … whatever your print environment

The use of BYOD (‘Bring Your Own Device’ for those new to the term) in business means employees want to print from whatever device they’ve happened to bring in from home.

Up til now, that’s been a little tricky to manage from an IT POV. Not anymore though – thanks to Mobility Print now working happily with Mac and Linux servers.

Mobility Print is now supported by offline Site Servers

The simplicity and versatility of Mobility Print is now supported with the seamless failover of Site Servers. Not only can users have choice and freedom to print from whatever device is at their disposal, SysAdmins can have the confidence that their Mobility Print network will be always available when using Site Servers.

Restrict printer access through Mobility Print based on subnets

With the use of subnet filtering, you can now restrict which printers are available for each subnet at your organization. Mobility Print allows printers to only be made available to specified groups or users. So in a college, for example, you might have all student devices on a different subnet to the staff devices, and want each of these […]

Added security through Mobility Print with per job authentication mode

For customers using Mobility Print with either PaperCut NG or PaperCut MF, you can now quickly and easily set the printer authentication mode for each individual printer . By default, the authentication mode is set to “per device”, which means users details are remembered for the device they are printing from. However by clicking on the Select […]

Driverless printing, BYOD made easy

Is BYOD a disruptive phenomenon or a business and work enabler?

With smartphones, tablets, and laptops making their way into your organization or campus, allowing users to connect to your network, find their files, and print can cause operational challenges.

According to Gartner, BYOD forces IT to wrestle with governance and compliance, mobile device management, and security of your network.

BYOD: What the educators say

The high cost of maintaining laptops and tablets has been a key driver for Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) adoption in schools. This was certainly evident at the ISTE conference and exhibition in the US earlier this month where educators from all over the globe converged to see the latest technology for schools. From day […]

PaperCut just works – any platform, any network, any printer

Most organizations don’t just run on one platform, OS or brand of hardware. Different directories, servers and workstations make for endless configuration possibilities. When it comes down to print management on the ground, if your fleet is multi-vendor, you’ve probably faced issues with numerous print drivers and operating systems. Then, there’s your users.
