KYOCERA ANNOUNCES GOOGLE CLOUD PRINTING
26 November 2015
Osaka, Japan – November 30, 2015: KYOCERA Document Solutions, one of the world’s leading document solutions companies, announces that select printers and MFPs are now able to support Google Cloud PrintTM, making it even easier to access documents from anywhere and support growing printing needs, without the deployment of IT departments.
Google Cloud Print is a service by Google Inc. that allows users to print from their smart phone, tablet, personal computers or any other web-connected device, to any cloud-connected printer without installing specific printer drivers on their devices. Printing from smart phones and tablets is becoming a requirement for more users every day, especially in key target markets for Kyocera such as the education or public sector which need a more flexible printing approach without print servers.
[Hans-Gerd Schmidt, Product Manager at Kyocera Document Solutions Europe] said, "We all know that more work than ever before is done on the move, so digital workflow is more important than ever. Our customers need to have the same access to documents and print capability on mobile devices as they do on their desktops. Google Cloud Print gives that control and flexibility without the need for expensive infrastructure."
In many organisations, both PCs and mobile devices are used to maximise work in and out of the office. With a Google Cloud Print compatible printer, the user does not need to choose the device for printing so no driver downloads are necessary. This brings a raft of benefits to all businesses because it enables employees to have complete access to their documents wherever they are, improving workflows and saving time. It is possible to send print jobs to the office printer even while out of the office or easily output their document to the specified printer from a remote location. Anyone with a Google account can access these benefits.
KYOCERA is expanding its Google Cloud Print compatible models.
