Navigating the Mobile Printing Landscape

Micro Focus iPrint connects all your organization's workstations and mobile devices to your current printers. It allows IT to set up a self-service printing environment in which employees can print on demand instead of calling IT with print-provisioning needs. Micro Focus iPrint works with your current users in Active Directory or Micro Focus eDirectory to provide authentication. Users on Windows, Mac, Linux and most mobile device platforms can send print jobs through Micro Focus iPrint to both new and legacy printers from all the major print vendors, without worrying about print drivers.

Print using a mobile app

Micro Focus iPrint enables users of iOS, Android, Windows Mobile, and Blackberry mobile devices to print to your organization's networked printers. Even if they are halfway around the world, they can use the "Open in" or "Share with" capabilities in their phone or tablet to print from their mobile applications to a Micro Focus iPrint printer. Your users can select the printer from a list and adjust all of the basic print specifications through a simple touch-screen-friendly interface.

Micro Focus iPrint provides all of the necessary document rendering and conversion.

Email print jobs to any Micro Focus iPrint printer

Users can print from any email-enabled device by sending an email to Micro Focus iPrint. Administrators can set up a single email address for the organization's printing, or one for each printer. Your organization's email administrator can also set up white lists and other controls to increase the security of your mobile, email-based printing and make sure Micro Focus iPrint only processes relevant print jobs.

Self-service mobile printing

Employees can print from their mobile devices—without waiting for the helpdesk to set-up a printer. This means that users can print to any organizational printer from their mobile devices without contacting the helpdesk for authorization, drivers or other details. Users can begin printing with just a few mouse clicks—no training required.

Works with legacy printers

Micro Focus iPrint can save your organization money in multiple ways. By working across heterogeneous environments, Micro Focus iPrint prevents you from having to buy multiple print solutions. Perhaps more importantly, Micro Focus iPrint eliminates the need for you to purchase new printers. Micro Focus iPrint renders and converts print jobs coming from mobile devices and sends them to any printer, thus eliminating the need for special mobile-ready printers.

Micro Focus iPrint also scales well, giving IT a central and easy-to-manage printing solution. Together with the decrease in helpdesk calls that comes from self-service printing, this means Micro Focus iPrint can significantly reduce the hours needed to manage your print solution.

Leverages your current directory service

Micro Focus iPrint makes secure printing easy by integrating its data store with your identity directory. By working with lightweight directory-access protocol (LDAP) sources like Active Directory and Micro Focus eDirectory, Micro Focus iPrint can authenticate your users to increase your print security. This means no matter what mobile device an employee wants to use, Micro Focus iPrint offers authentication to keep your organization's information secure.

Works in a heterogeneous environment

Micro Focus iPrint can save IT time and money by significantly reducing the management burden required for mixed fleets of Windows, Mac and Linux desktops. It works across the major mobile platforms as well, meaning IT only has to manage a single print solution for all your organization's endpoints.
