In a whole range of business spheres, the pressure is now on to adapt to changing times. Companies are understanding the need to increase flexibility, reduce costs and provide improved customer service. All of this requires that companies enable their employees to print and manage documents while on the go – and this is why remote printing solutions are now a must.
What exactly is driving the need for change? Internet-based innovations are an obvious driving force, but this are not the only factor. In recent years, three major forces have started to make their presence known, further increasing the need for remote solutions. Namely, these are: the rise of the virtual workforce, an increase in third-party cloud providers and the growing demand for real-time networking solutions that involve suppliers.
As Workforces Go Mobile, So Does Printing
Thanks to the growing importance of both the internet and mobile devices, workers are now realizing that being chained to their desks makes little business sense. In addition to providing smartphones and tablets, many offices now operate Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) policies, making it easier to research, analyze and write from anywhere you can get an internet connection.
Newly found office freedom has meant that the old, server-based printing network model is no longer suitable for the demands flexible offices are placing on them. People who need to use mobile devices at work need cloud printing services, as these enable them to find and connect with printers wherever they need to go.
Fortunately, Samsung offers a wide selection of cloud printing services for various business needs. These includeSamsung Cloud Print, as well as a full range offered by Samsung affiliate PrinterOn. Not being tied to traditional print networks allows workers to truly exercise their freedom – and allows your enterprise to stay flexible and ready to move with the times.
Innovations for Outsourcers
Companies are increasingly outsourcing complicated tasks associated with running business applications, storage solutions and data networks to third-party cloud companies. By reducing their computing infrastructure needs, businesses can save money on overheads and other costs, and instead focus more on doing what they do best.
But while this can ease the burden on internal IT departments, it also means that offices have less support when it comes to setting up their printing networks. With fewer IT experts available at each company, employees need print solutions that combine reliability and convenience.
Samsung’s remote printing solutions fit the bill on this front too. With print solutions that are easy to install and set up on a wide range of devices, Samsung helps remove the need for complicated services and wired networks. This allows offices to do more, and cut down on the risk of creating IT support bottlenecks.
Real-Time Solutions for Suppliers
When working with suppliers and contractors, it is important that all parties can share and access information as quickly as possible. Delays can slow down the immediacy of time-sensitive processes, so keeping everything up-to-date in real-time means both suppliers and customers can stay on top of the game.
Samsung’s remote document management solutions are designed to work quickly. This allows contractors to find the information they need right away, while also maintaining the high security levels now needed to conduct secure business.
You can scan barcodes and other information-tracking labels using a smartphone or another mobile device. Document management software can then extract data and route as needed. Apps like Dynamic Workflow help users manage complicated and repetitive work data, allowing suppliers to stay up-to-speed with the latest information and developments.
Software that Empowers
The rise of remote printing also means that print solutions need to be compatible with a wide gamut of devices. Workers expect to be able to use all sorts of smart technology, and do not want to have to think about issues such as manufacturer or operating systems.
That is why Samsung’s cloud solutions offer a high degree of interoperability. This factor allows workers to get down to business, rather than spend time fretting over tech specs and compatibility issues.
Thanks to the Smart UX Center and its customizable apps and widgets, remote work is easier than ever. For example, RemoteCall is just one service that can expand your ability to work remotely with Samsung MFPs.
RemoteCall, meanwhile, puts online, real-time service and expert advice at your disposal. You can launch the RemoteCall app from the Smart UX Center and get in direct contact with a representative. This expert can remotely diagnose your system, identify problems and walk you through steps that will help you to solve any issues you may be experiencing.
These Smart UX Center apps and many more are available at the Printing App Center, enabling users and offices to add a wide range of functionality.
A New Dawn
Companies are increasingly recognising the need for mobility, flexibility and cloud-based solutions. This means the days of relying on outdated systems built around a largely static workforce are numbered.
Rushing in to take the place of the old system is a new era of remote printing. And with it comes more enterprise freedom and business versatility than ever before.
