What is Cloud Printing?
These days, the words “cloud printing” get thrown around a lot. But what exactly does that mean?
Essentially, cloud printing is a printing service that lets users print documents from multiple devices. Whether you have a tablet, laptop, iPhone, or desktop, using a cloud printing service will allow you to print from any of those devices.
How Cloud Printing Works
So now that we know what cloud printing is, how exactly does it work?
Cloud printing sends the print job to any device connected to the internet. Because it is all internet based, the only important factor is having a device that is connected to the internet.
If you don’t have a cloud printer, don’t worry! You can easily get around this problem by installing a cloud print connector to make it cloud print compatible.
Not sure which printer you have? No worries! Newer printers such as HP and Kyocera tend to have cloud printing compatibility. If your printer is a little older or you aren’t sure of its capabilities, you can check for these through Google Cloud Print.
Google Cloud print also has a handy list of compatible printers. You can check for your office’s printer to make sure you’ll be able to get everything you need to accomplish. Also, feel free to reach out to us if you aren’t sure.
How This Helps Your Business
Cloud printing adds a number of benefits to any workplace and can seriously help your company’s operations improve.
Device Doesn’t Matter
With cloud printing, users don’t need to worry about what device they’re printing from. For example, say an employee has a document they need to print from their phone. Rather than going through the process of emailing it to themselves to print and then sending it to the printer, they can print directly from their phone!
Cloud Printing Reduces Software
Think about how long it takes to install software on every company device. With cloud printing you can simply download print software from the cloud. That way, you don’t have to take time installing expensive and hefty software onto all the company computers!
It Reduces Your Carbon Footprint
In today’s world, going green is of rising importance. If you’re concerned about your business’s carbon footprint, using cloud printing is one way to help contribute to environmental efforts. Cloud printing reduces waste and emissions from transporting new printer-compatible devices to companies.
Cloud Printing Is Easy
Think about all the cables coming out of the backend of your printer. It’s confusing, right? With cloud printing you don’t need to worry about plugging in different devices and drivers. Instead, you can access everything you need from the cloud.
Cloud printing can help your business in a lot more ways than you might think. Investing in a cloud based printing system can immensely benefit your business. Ready to get started with a printer that makes sense for you? Give us a call here at CapX Solutions to set up a printer!
