What is Mobile Printing?

Mobile printing has become a modern office necessity - let's learn more!


On a basic level, mobile printing is the ability to print to any device from anywhere. For example: imagine you’ve just left an awesome meeting with a prospective client. You don’t have to wait until you’ve left the office - with mobile printing you can go ahead and print your forms and proposals straight from your device on to your office MFP. Your forms will be waiting in your MFP’s tray, ready for you to pick up when you get back.

How can I get started?

Cloud-Based Printing

There are a couple of ways to achieve mobile printing. The first would be to use a cloud-based process. With programs like Microsoft 364 and Google Drive, you’re able to store your documents in the cloud, and then print from that cloud server to your network-enabled devices.

Manufacturer-Based Mobile Printing

Manufacturers like Canon, Konica Minolta, and Xerox make it easier on their users - they have created applications that allow you to both print and scan from the same software.

Mobile Device-Based Printing

When you’re using a mobile device, whether it’s apple or android, you have the ability to print using AirPrint for apple, and Mopria print for Android. With these applications, you can print your PDFs and pictures much like you would when printing from your computer.


Why should I consider using mobile printing?

Whether you’re at home, or in the office, or even out with your clients, you want the flexibility to be able to print from wherever you are, and that’s where mobile print shines.

Having the ability to print remotely using mobile printing will streamline your workflow processes and increase your productivity.

I began my career in office technology business with Cobb, this past year. Prior to that, I worked in hospitality and customer service for a decade to help pay my way through my undergraduate and post-graduate education. I spent my first 4 months here in extensive product and service training, and build upon that knowledge daily with up-to-date industry news and continued manufacturer instruction. I am committed to guiding businesses to the solution that works best – for them. I bring to the table the aptitude to comprehensively problem-solve through my business technology focused lens. Outside of work, I’m passionate about my community, participating in all that RVA has to offer. My fiancé, and two dogs walk everywhere, and if we can’t walk, we bike!
