Your people now use their mobiles for anything and everything, including establishing connections to all kinds of devices. In printing, the latest developments in this area use NFC technology – which is best known for its use in contactless payment. It can also be used to allow people to print from their mobile phones and tablets, but the real benefit of NFC is instant, secure connection and authentication. This allows specific users to instantly authorise the release of documents held in the print queue.

IT managers can configure printers from their device, and with device cloning, do this in seconds. With the revolution in BYOD gathering pace and NFC set to become a standard feature on mobile phones, printers enabled with this technology can boost productivity and usability without compromising security.
