Spectrum Interactive and PrinterOn Launch Mobile Printing at UK Airports

PrintSpectrum Internet Kiosks Powered by the PrinterOn Mobile Printing Solution

PrinterOn is pleased to announce the successful launch of the PrintSpectrum public printing solution at 30 UK airport locations including at Heathrow (all terminals), Gatwick, Stansted, Manchester, Newcastle, Birmingham, Luon, Bristol, Edinburgh and Glasgow.

The PrintSpectrum service enables users to print directly from internet kiosks, as well as from any internet-enabled device such as a smartphone, tablet or laptop. With 130,000 pages printed at UK airports last year, the service has been extremely popular with UK travelers.

“Partnering with Spectrum Interactive has made it possible to roll out our solution to these UK locations quickly and successfully,” said Ken Noreikis, Vice President Sales & Marketing, PrinterOn Corporation. “Large deployments in key markets like this are necessary for increasing awareness and driving adoption of mobile printing worldwide.”

Users can print boarding passes, emails, attachments and web content simply by forwarding an email with attachment to a printer specific email address or by uploading a document via URL to a printing portal. A unique release code is displayed or emailed, which when entered on the printer’s 22″ touchscreen interface retrieves the print job. The user can then pay by credit/debit cards or coin. The job is then released to print, and when completed the file is permanently deleted from the print server ensuring total privacy.

Daniel Gray, Director of Travel Division for Spectrum added, “Public printing solutions have become an essential service for airport travelers, and thus equally important for our airport partners. This demand is exceptionally strong during periods of travel disruption, which recently has ranged from industrial strikes, to bad weather and even volcanic ash! Our airport installations are unmanned and remotely managed, with the printer, PC and touch screen built into a secure kiosk housing. We have successfully interfaced the PrinterOn product with our own kiosk management software, to enable full monitoring and management for the kiosk, payment for card and coin, and an easy public interface with touch screen. Our next developments include a stand-alone PrintPillar for areas with strong demand and a high density of handheld or laptop devices.”

PrintSpectrum pilot projects are currently underway at key airport locations, Premier Inn and Travelodge Hotels including London City, Heathrow and Manchester.
