As you look at the world of Managed Print and the different trends, here are a few definitions from Quocirca that I thought would be relevant and helpful…
- Mobile printing: Mobile printing refers to print jobs submitted by business users via a mobile device such as a smartphone or tablet.
- Cloud printing: In a cloud printing scenario, print jobs are emailed to a registered web or cloud-enabled printer via a private or public cloud.
- Pull printing: Pull printing functionality allows a document to be released only upon user authentication using methods such as proximity/magnetic/smart cards or biometric recognition. Users submit jobs to designated pull-printing queues and jobs are moved from the pull-printing queue to the dedicated print queue. Pull printing enhances security and minimises wastage by ensuring print jobs are only collected by authorised users.
