Not surprisingly, the newest trend in mobile device usage is BYOD (bring your own device) to the workplace. This new growth is not expected to stall, and experts predict that 50% of workers will be using their personally owned devices in the workplace by 2017. Familiarity and ease of use are cited as top reasons, as employees embrace mobile functionality at work and home.

Businesses have had to prepare for the increasing rise in BYOD users, facing new IT challenges, including the need for secure mobile printing. Employees expect to not only have access to business information at any time and location, they expect to be able to print needed documents without hindrance. In fact, TechNavio cites printing as the feature most requested in mobile devices.

Finding the Perfect Solution

Finding the right mobile printing solution requires a little forethought and discussion.

  • Printing should be user-friendly, with simple printing solutions that work across the enterprise, including guest printing.

  • Your mobile printing solution should be flexible enough to work with any printer at any location.

  • Easy integration with existing infrastructures and software is a top priority.

  • Your mobile printing solution should include tracking and management features for easy accounting of print jobs from mobile devices, both on-site and off.

  • Security during mobile printing is critical, and your software should protect sensitive information during all phases of printing, including holding jobs in a queue until the owner releases them.
