Maximise your time

Print and scan behaviours in most workplaces fail to tap into existing cloud capacities within the organisation.

The result: productivity falls behind, and information security risks proliferate.

We’ve identified five steps to better printing and scanning below.

Actions:

1. Send pages to print from any location
2. Authenticate at any device
3. Release print job securely

Outcome:

Print job released from cloud at home, office or co-working space.
