Libraries often struggle with budgetary constraints and are torn between keeping costs under control while providing the
latest services and technology to patrons. Print capability is a typical service at public libraries, but it comes with associated problems such as: maintenance of computers and drivers by IT departments, paper waste by patrons who print and never pick up their documents, and the time staff have to spend collecting money from patrons who are paying for prints.
The PrinterOn Hosted cloud printing solution provides mobile print capability to patrons while also solving many of the
issues created by traditional printing from desktop stations. With PrinterOn, print drivers are managed in the cloud eliminating the need for IT departments to manage them. With the addition of a pay-for-print service such as PayPal or coin box,
libraries now have a self-serve printing service which eliminates the need for interaction with library staff.
The Las Vegas Clark Country Library District had this to say about PrinterOn:
“We found PrinterOn through a web search along with some other solutions. After a bit of research, we decided on
PrinterOn because they are the leader in mobile printing technology. We did an evaluation and found that PrinterOn gave us the functionality patrons were asking for, the ability to print from their own mobile devices.” Read a success story.
Users of your PrinterOn service can also access thousands of PrinterOn public printing locations worldwide by accessing the PrinterOn directory or by searching with one of the mobile printing apps available for your smartphone or tablet.
