Businesses have responded to the fact that mobile devices are commonplace today. Regardless of location, uniFLOW Online allows users to use their smartphones or tablets to print documents securely. More than 40 file types can be converted e.g. PDF, DOC, DOCX, XLS, XLSX, PPT, PPTX and standard image formats such as JPG and PNG. This allows documents to be printed quickly on the go, just in time for the next meeting.
Mobile workers can also submit documents by uploading them via a web browser. The uploaded files will be added to the single personal print queue where the job name is automatically copied from the name of the uploaded file.
Businesses can also provide secure printing to their guests. To do this, the print job can simply be transmitted via email. Having sent a mobile print job, guest users will receive an email containing instructions as to how to retrieve their print job together with a temporary Job Code. The temporary Job Code is used to authenticate at the device. Different default print functions e.g. duplex and B/W can be set for employees or guests.
Users are identified from their email address so all submitted jobs appear in a user’s secure print queue as if the print job would had been sent from their desktop. Following authentication at the device, a user views a single list of all his/her print jobs.
Submitting mobile print jobs and accessing personal activity reports via Android and Apple phones is easy with the uniFLOW Online Print & Scan app.
There are multiple ways to submit print jobs quickly and easily. Next to file upload, also taking a picture is available. The correct distortion function detects the edges of a document, flattening out any trapezoid effect to ensure it is perfectly cropped. The app also displays personal statistical information of the logged-in user’s activities.
Google Cloud Print allows users to submit jobs from their mobile devices, ChromeOS and other desktop OS. uniFLOW Online facilitates connection with Google Cloud Print™, providing another method for users to submit their job. Print jobs submitted via Google Cloud Print™ can be viewed together with all other print jobs in a user’s uniFLOW Online secure print queue. Users can select finishing options when submitting their jobs which are then applied to the uniFLOW Online job ticket.
Please note, that Google Cloud Print™ will be discontinued as of 1st January 2021. NT-ware have been working directly with Google for the past few months to ensure that uniFLOW Online will work with the native print functions of ChromeOS soon.
