3 Reasons Why You Need to Adopt Mobile Guest Printing
Problems with the Current Print EnvironmentCurrent print set-ups in most business centers at hotels, guest houses, airports, etc. present a variety of issues for both guests and business owners/administrators. Most business centers consist of a simple setup with a few desktop computers and USB or network connected printers. Guests often prefer not having to login to their email, Dropbox, Office 365, and other accounts, using their personal credentials on foreign devices, as this may possibly increase the risk of breach. On the other hand, business owners and administrators may feel uncomfortable with providing users the freedom to plug and print using their own USB devices, as it is quite possible that users could unintentionally, or even intentionally transmit viruses and bugs onto local desktops and connected networks. This would undoubtedly be a nightmare situation for any owner!
Mobile Guest Printing: What is it and What are some Benefits?With current print environments causing a host of problems, as outlined above, mobile guest printing might just be the ideal solution that both businesses and guests are looking for! With mobile guest printing, guests can print at business centers by simply discovering printers directly from their mobile devices, or by sending their print jobs as attachments via email to a designated printer email address. The email option offers guests the flexibility of being able to print from any of their mobile devices, without having to worry about operating system compatibility and integration!

Some of the benefits of the ideal mobile guest printing solution include:
Greater Flexibility and ConvenienceWith guests now able to print directly from any of their mobile devices, whether it be laptops, tablets, or mobile phones, this allows users to conveniently print while on the go, not having to waste time in getting to the business center, logging into their cloud accounts, and then finally printing. Instead, with mobile guest printing, users remotely connect to the printer if discovery has been enabled, or send off a quick email with the print job attached, and print right away from the comfort of their rooms, suites, boarding gates, etc.
Enhanced SecurityMobile guest printing enables users to conduct the entire printing process from their personal mobile devices, only interacting with the printer at the very end to pickup their hard-copy output. This mitigates the risk of security breaches for users by not having to login and access their files on foreign, third-party computers, while also reducing the security threat for owners by ensuring that their printing environment does not provide users with an open access point to possibly spread viruses or corrupted files through USB devices. Another feature that owners should look for in potential mobile guest printing solutions is a randomized, secure print job release code mechanism. This would allow users to authenticate themselves at the printer before their print job is released, further securing their hardcopy output and ensuring that printed documents are obtained by their appropriate owners!
Simplified Print ManagementWith significantly less equipment required for business centers after deploying mobile guest printing, organizations are able to cut down on costs for IT support and maintenance. Additionally, most mobile guesting printing solutions integrate easily and seamlessly with the existing IT network infrastructure, not requiring complex print drivers or software, subsequently enabling administrators and owners to focus their time and money on more important aspects of their day to day business.
