Simplifying print on Chromebooks and other BYOD devices
PaperCut has announced the addition of Cloud Print to its innovative Mobility Print solution. It is available for free in PaperCut Mobility Print™. PaperCut Mobility Print is already simplifying the printing process for Bring Your Own Devices (BYOD) and other end-user managed devices, such as smartphones, tablets, laptops or Chromebooks.
With this breakthrough, Chromebook users can now print remotely and outside the network by sending print jobs over the internet. Mac and Windows support will arrive before the end of September.
The announcement is a major step forward for schools and businesses looking for a Google Cloud Print replacement, which Google has previously stated will stop working after December 31, 2020.
PaperCut Mobility Print’s Cloud Print functionality will help Google Cloud Print customers’ transition in an easy and timely way to a powerful and robust alternative.
Steve Holmes, EMEA Regional Director, PaperCut, stated: “Mobility Print now harnesses PaperCut’s Cloud Print technology to keep users printing when they’re outside your network, or on an untrusted guest network. We’ve been looking forward to making this available to the thousands of workplaces that need to replace Google Cloud Print with a like-for-like printing solution. Furthermore, it adds value at a time when, for many, business growth and development has been stagnant for almost a quarter. Not only is PaperCut’s Cloud Print free, but it provides businesses with a better way to bring print flexibility and efficiency to their operations when it’s so desperately needed. Users can press print at home, and pick the document up later at work, bringing a renewed simplicity to network printing.”
The addition of Cloud Print to Mobility Print has been achieved with security and convenience at the fore. With the new Cloud Print feature, printing is:
- Secure: Print jobs and metadata are sent via an encrypted peer-to-peer connection, without requiring inbound internet access to your server.
- Lightning-fast: Print jobs stay local when possible, and only sent via the internet when users are not connected to the local network.
- Native: Just like local printing, hit CTRL+P or ‘Pprint’ right in the device’s interface to enable simple, functional printing from any application.
There are plenty of use cases where Mobility Print’s Cloud Print feature will help busy IT teams – not just when replacing Google Cloud Print. One of the major problems this release solves is enabling printing in untrusted guest networks.
Available as a free standalone solution or as part of PaperCut MF’s complete print management solution, Mobility Print is already helping millions of people to print.
“Over 10 million people happily use Mobility Print across the globe, from SMEs, to large enterprises, law firms and schools big and small,” Holmes added. “PaperCut is constantly introducing solutions that present customers with a better way to reduce their costs, to work touch-free and to print more flexibly. With PaperCut’s new Cloud Print functionality, our Mobility Print solution offers customers easy access to remote printing, with the reassurance that it is from a trusted brand.”
Mobility Print is a fast, secure, scalable product and free alternative to Google Cloud Print that enables printing from any device, and now – with the addition of Cloud Print – anywhere.
