How Samsung’s New NFC Laser Printers Can Help Your Business Manage BYOD

Embraced strategically, a bring-your-own-device (BYOD) approach broadens staff workflow. That’s why Samsung built NFC into its latest colour lasers. Workers can simply tap their smart devices to print, scan or fax to a printer via the Samsung MobilePrint app. No frantic IT calls for help with last minute copies before a presentation. Just high performance prints with or without a PC. Let’s take a look.

Support for seamless tap and go printing through Near Field Communications (NFC) is an industry-first innovation being driven by Samsung.

It makes sense, too, given the technology’s inclusion in a wide range of popular mobile devices over the last few years. The phones and tablets used by your workers. If staff own a Galaxy S series device, they don’t even need an app to print great-looking photos and web pages.
The Samsung MobilePrint app enables mobile printing in its most advanced form yet. In addition to mobile scans and faxes, the app lets you print various document types including images, Office docs, PDFs, Google Docs, email and Facebook content.

Help Your Team Become More Efficient

As you’d expect, the 2014 Samsung laser printer range continues support for printing via Wi-Fi direct, Wi-Fi networks and even Google Cloud.

Simply register your printer to your Google account with the Samsung MobilePrint app by tapping your NFC-equipped mobile. Then use Google Cloud Print to print from mobile devices virtually anywhere. Users can print from the Samsung MobilePrint app and any other apps that support Google Cloud Print.

Printing documents at a remote corporate location without IT assistance? Check. It’s about improving your team’s ease-of-use and convenience.

Take the new Samsung SL-C1860FW all-in-one (print, copy, scan, fax). Ideal for small businesses, it includes all the features we’ve talked about so far, and produces professional colour prints at a speedy 18 pages-per-minute. A 50 page automatic document feeder and 250 page paper tray also mean you don’t have to keep getting up from your desk. And don’t underestimate the cost savings: up to 20% on toner when using the built-in eco mode. A 1-year on-site warranty is also included.

Pretty stellar specs for a $369 communication hub that connects with your team in a variety of flexible ways: NFC (for tablets and phones) plus 802.11 b/g/n wireless, USB 2.0 or Ethernet for your laptops and PCs.
