Mobile & BYOD printing
Bring Your Own Devices (BYOD) and mobile devices are now accepted as playing an essential role in many organizations and are here to stay. However, providing printing support across the various available devices is challenging because there are many competing technologies with no standardization. Current BYOD printing solutions are problematic because:
- there are lots of choices
- they might not be compatible with your printing infrastructure or are difficult to integrate
- they keep changing.
Sharp’s solution for mobile and BYOD printing is a product called Mobility Print. It can be installed on its own or work together with our leading Print Management Solution.
Mobility Print delivers network print services for iOS, Windows, macOS, Android, and Chrome devices across mixed fleet environments. It allows both managed and unmanaged devices to securely print to any printer on your network. Mobility Print is easy to set up and allows users to select from various print options and print all file types. It provides a native printing experience across all platforms.
(driver-less printing via a web browser)
A simple web based experience suitable for any BYOD laptop or Netbook users. End-users upload their document via a standard browser form. No special or client print driver setup required.
Email to Print
A lowest common denominator, and simplest solution that works on any device that’s able to send email attachments. PDF, picture files or Microsoft Office document attachments are converted to print jobs.
Google Cloud Print (GCP)
GCP is Google’s preferred mobile and Chromebook (Chrome OS) printing experience. It is the native printing experience for Android, Chromebooks, and Google applications on iOS. GCP is also an option for laptop users (when using the Chrome browser or a custom driver/service). Our Print Management features integrate with GCP.
iOS printing (iPad & iPhone)
iOS provides users with a native and mature print experience on iPhones and iPads. Users can select various printing options, such as copies and grayscale, and can print from many applications without the need for additional software. Users can use PaperCut NG/MF via the Mobile web client app.
