Xerox launches mobile print app
Free app is designed to allow workers to print on the go
Xerox Corporation has launched a free mobile print app, designed to make it easier for workers to manage documents on the go.
The mobile print app, called PrintBack, works with printers and MFPs and is designed to let users access their Mac or PC-connected printer through a Google Android or Apple IOS-enabled device.
A document, photo or web page can be sent via an open-email service - such as G-mail, Hotmail or the storage service Dropbox - from the mobile device to the default printer.
"Workers today are constantly on the go, and PrintBack makes it easy to print from any location, at any time," said Dan Smith, head of Integrated Marketing for the Middle East and Africa region of Xerox's Developing Markets Operations. "The app allows professionals to focus on their business and less on how to print."
PrintBack, which works on any manufacturer or network printer and MFP is also designed to be able to directly print photos taken on a smartphone or tablet, copy documents and photos from Dropbox to the computer's downloads folder remotely, and keep print jobs at the computer until released to avoid sensitive documents being out in the open.
Xerox PrintBack is available as a free download on Xerox.com, the Android Market and at Apple's App Store.
