PrinterOn Enterprise 2.0 Breaks Mobile Printing Boundaries Taking Enterprise Mobility to New Levels

PrinterOn introduces secure printer discovery that is not limited by network or device.

KITCHENER, Ont. ‒ May 1, 2013 – PrinterOn®, the world’s leading Enterprise Mobile Printing Platform, has announced the release of PrinterOn Enterprise 2.0. This release of PrinterOn Enterprise is a significant update to the platform that expands on PrinterOn’s existing solution to provide the security, flexibility, usability and reliability required by the enterprise with diverse networks, thousands of users and multiple device types.

PrinterOn Enterprise is an on-premise mobile printing platform that enables documents to be printed and managed within the private cloud regardless of device, printer, network or geographic location. The solution has been designed for rapid deployment with the most common options included as default settings to ensure a quick first successful print job. For larger deployments, printers and services can be created and managed in bulk to support enterprise-wide, multi-device implementations. Integrations with existing authentication and print management systems extend and enhance current infrastructure investments.

The following are some of the most significant new features of PrinterOn Enterprise 2.0.

Secure Printer Discovery Without Network or Device Limitations

The most anticipated of these new features is the introduction of PrinterOn Discovery. As a key part of the PrinterOn Enterprise 2.0 Platform, PrinterOn Discovery provides enterprise users with automatic printer discovery capabilities across multiple device platforms. .

Unlike AirPrint, PrinterOn Discovery:

  •  supports all print workflows (mobile apps, email, web printing)
  •  works with iOS®, Android and Windows® devices
  •  is compatible with all printers and MFPs
  •  supports release codes and user authentication as well as other advanced workflows

“Enterprise 2.0 is a major milestone in the history of our Enterprise Platform,” said Ken Noreikis, Vice President Sales & Marketing, PrinterOn. “BYOD is at the forefront of enterprise mobility today and mobile workers need to stay productive no matter where they are, which device they are using or the network they are on. The introduction of PrinterOn Secure Discovery enables this connection of users and devices worldwide letting them print what they need, when they need it. PrinterOn is the only enterprise-grade printing platform that can offer this robust feature set which is enabled by our unique private cloud printing infrastructure. This technical architecture is fundamental to our approach and provides significant value to Enterprise users.”

Push Notification Enables Near Real-time Cloud Printing

These new Guest Printing features support all print workflows including web submission, email and mobile apps and provide distinct guest user reporting and guest user IDs that are validated against AD/LDAP servers. Guest Printing can be enabled as part of a stand-alone PrinterOn Enterprise deployment or as part of a co-deployment with a print management system.
