Printing and scanning in the palm of your hand


Mobile devices have become part of everyday working life, simplifying information access and collaboration, and enabling people to create and edit documents any time, any place.  But printing from mobile devices like phones and tablets — especially personal devices allowed under BYOD initiatives — has long been difficult or even impossible, leading to frustration for mobile workers and hampering their productivity. Now it's easier than ever before to enable people to print from their mobile devices and get great results. Our solutions do away with the need to find and install printer drivers, and overcome concerns about security when non-corporate devices access the network.
 


Effortless printing from your mobile device

Konica Minolta's solutions for mobile printing make it easy to print from almost any phone or tablet to a bizhub multifunctional printer (MFP). Our solutions integrate seamlessly with a range of mobile operating systems (OS) and technologies, and suit a variety of scenarios.


Print from your mobile device to a bizhub MFP on the same network

Konica Minolta Workplace Pure makes it quick and easy to implement Cloud Print for secure, flexible location-independent printing from mobile devices and other sources.

Additionally, users with iOS and MacOS devices can print directly to any Konica Minolta bizhub MFP which is AirPrint certified by Apple. Users with Android and Windows 10 devices can print via Mopria Print Services (pre-installed on their devices).

For access to full bizhub print and scan features, as well as end-to-end file encryption for data protection, you can download the free Konica Minolta Mobile Print app to your iOS or Android device. You can authenticate and release your print jobs by tapping your device on the MFP (instead of swiping your ID card).
 


Allow secure mobile printing for guests and visitors


Make it easy for guests and visitors to print from their mobile devices while keeping your business secure. Ideal for hotels, libraries, educational institutions and more, Secure Guest Print is a smart service from Konica Minolta Workplace Pure that's simple for anyone to use.

A guest or visitor simply sends their document to a pre-defined email address, then uses the PIN code they receive to release their printout at a bizhub MFP.
 


Manage mobile print infrastructure on a server or in the cloud


BENS Server is a scalable network print server that encrypts files sent to print, optimises print data streams, ensures Konica Minolta MFPs adapt to almost any print environment (including AirPrint), and refines mobile print data for high-quality results. You control user access, and you can require authentication to release print jobs.

EveryonePrint and EveryonePrint Hybrid Cloud Platform offer secure mobile printing in a private cloud or multi-tenant environment respectively for any device and any brand of printer — combining the flexibility and simplicity users expect with the security your business needs, including end-to-end encryption of print jobs for data protection. You:
 
  • Have control over adding and removing users
  • Can require authentication to release print jobs
  • Can set up secure guest printing


Combine cost control with mobile printing


Dispatcher Paragon combines centralised management of mobile print users with close control over print costs. You can track usage; allocate costs; and assign budgets and price lists to devices, cost centres or users to enable accurate print cost calculation. There's also a range of options for users to top up their accounts.

1. What is mobile printing?

Now that many of us use increasingly capable mobile devices to create and edit documents and files, we want to be able to print them straight from those devices. This is known as mobile printing.

Traditionally, organisations have been reluctant to enable mobile printing — concerned especially about the chances of compromising the corporate network by allowing access from BYOD devices. Now, however, there's a range of solutions that make mobile printing less risky and more secure, without adding complexity for users. Solutions range from built-in mobile device capability that enables wireless access to printers on the same network; to enterprise solutions that provide centralised control and management functionality, as well as cost allocation and tracking.

 

2. How can mobile printing help my organisation?

Mobile printing can help your organisation:

  • Boost employee productivity, by allowing users to print anything from anywhere, and so get more done in less time.
  • Reduce wasted print, by enabling employees to print a document when they need it, instead of being tempted to print lots of documents out 'just in case'.
  • Improve customer service, by giving customer-facing staff the flexibility to print directly from their mobile devices during in-person customer interactions
