Ringdale® announces the integration of FollowMe® Mobile Printing with Apple AirPrint
Burgess Hill, United Kingdom, 18th September 2012 - The mobile workforce is increasing, making it critical for employees to have the ability to print regardless of their location. Ringdale, a leading provider of secure document output management solutions, announced today that FollowMe Mobile Printing now integrates natively with Apple's AirPrint software feature. The integrated mobile printing technology in FollowMe enables organizations to increase the productivity of their mobile workforce by providing the most flexible printing platform.
FollowMe's support for Apple AirPrint provides a seamless user experience by ensuring printing is effortless when using Apple iOS devices. With Apple AirPrint, the user simply taps the action button, selects print on their iPad or iPhone and then the device automatically sends the document via Wi-Fi to the FollowMe Q-Server, ready for release at any FollowMe enabled printer, without requiring any additional software.
Ringdale continues to lead in innovation as part of their strategy to maximize the efficiency of document workflow by removing the geographical and technology barriers when printing. "The integration of FollowMe and Apple AirPrint makes it quick and easy for users of Apple iOS devices to print within the business environment," said Jan Bollmann, Vice President of Engineering, Ringdale. "Organizations can utilize the benefits of this hugely popular consumer device, without any interruption to their existing IT infrastructure."
This integration is a development of FollowMe's Mobile Printing technology, which enables users to print whilst on the move, as documents can be submitted for print via e-mail, web-client and from any mobile phone or tablet device. Users working from home or on the road no longer need to plan their time around when or where they can print.
Ringdale invented FollowMe and the print roaming technology in 1997 and has continued to be at the forefront of the industry for over three decades. With offices in the United States, United Kingdom, Singapore and Japan, Ringdale have a strong global partner network and relationships with the world's leading printing manufacturers including Canon, Hewlett Packard, Lexmark, Konica Minolta, Kyocera Mita, Oce, OKI, Ricoh, Sharp, Toshiba and Xerox.
