One of the things successful and productive people do very well is find ways to be more efficient in their every day lives, they seek ways to make small tasks as simple as possible. At any given work place, there is bound to be a shared or networked printer and in some cases a print server used to manage how the printing queue is dealt with as well as the security side of printing especially in larger organisations, but then again why wait till you are a large organisation before you think about those important bits of running a successful business.
Having worked in an office for a while myself, a common theme is usually people standing around printers waiting for a document to come out or waiting to scan a document; what’s also not common with BYOD culture now with staff carrying tablet devices or smart phones which can be efficiency tools if used correctly.
Printers such as HP’s Laser Printers are now more than just a laser printer that allows printing documents very fast, they have also advanced in the connectivity area allowing printing from mobile devices; the new HP MFP ( Multi-function printers) offer unparalleled flexibility in the office space, they are designed with the office workflow in mind. They include printing straight from your mobile without compromising security, are optimised for scanning and support peer-to-peer wireless networks for improved sharing. You can also simply touch your NFC enabled device to print.
With all those features in mind, users can work on their tablet devices while they commute so for example, MS Office is now available on iOS meaning if you typed up a document or prepared a presentation whilst on the metro, you can relax about printing the handouts for the clients to read because you can simply get to the office and print from your iPad or if you use an Android Tablet or Smart Phone with NFC, you can simply touch and print.
