Mobile and BYOD

Planning for, and facilitating mobile print solutions using your existing print infrastructure is made easier with PaperCut's Mobile and "Bring Your Own Device" (BYOD) features.
With the lack of consistent standardization in the changing mobile device market, no single solution is able to provide print management and control for the entire array of devices available. Instead there are a number of solutions suited to catering for different mobile device platforms. As PaperCut has evolved, features such as Web Print, iOS printing, Google Cloud Print and Email to Print have been developed to provide flexible BYOD print management that minimizes the need to alter network infrastructure.

Consolidated BYOD Print Management

The “Mobile & BYOD” configuration options made available with the latest release of PaperCut consolidates and centralizes each of these solutions all in one place.

With comprehensive yet easy-to-follow instructions, setting up and executing your plan for your network’s mobile device print strategy has never been easier!

Whether you need to track and control printing from iPads, iPhones or other iOS devices using PaperCut’s iOS Printing or need to set up a general management solution for all devices using PaperCut’s Email to Print or Web Print, you may tailor PaperCut’s Mobile & BYOD configuration to suit your network’s needs.

Platforms supported by PaperCut

PaperCut’s Mobile and BYOD solutions provide print tracking and control for the following platforms:
Apple iOS Devices – iPads, iPhones, iPods The iOS Printing features in PaperCut and Google Cloud Print integration (GCP) provide solutions that allow you to maintain your existing network's print rules and policies and still share your printers to Apple devices while managing and controlling printing.
Android Phones, Tablets and devices runnning ChromeOS PaperCut's Google Cloud Print integration (GCP) streamlines the GCP setup without the need to purchase new "Cloud Ready" print devices. PaperCut automates the publishing your network's printers and enforces print policies and quotas for all popular Android and ChromeOS devices.
Windows 8 Phones, Surface Tablets and RT devices Usually Windows devices are able to print and use Windows server-based print queues however a simpler approach using PaperCut's Web Print delivers a solution with less overhead where there is no need to install print drivers or to manage server-based authentication. Users are authenticated by PaperCut's end user web interface and gain access to their usual print facilities.
Email To Print - a complete cross-platform BYOD solution If a device can send an email with a PDF, Microsoft Office Word, Excel or PowerPoint attachments, then it can be covered in your print management strategy using PaperCut's Email to Print feature, regardless of platform, make or model simply by sending the print to an assigned email address. Email to Print can also be used in conjunction with other PaperCut features such as Find Me Printing and Secure Print Release for cost-effective performance from your network's print infrastructure.
