Uxbridge, UK., September, 22, 2010 --  Xerox is helping mobile office workers and IT professionals stay productive with three tools that make it easier than ever to print regardless of location.
The Xerox Mobile Print Solution lets mobile professionals easily and securely print e-mails, presentations and other business documents from any smart phone or e-mail-enabled device.
Enhanced Mobile Express and Global Print Drivers offer simplified print management by IT staff. The Mobile Express driver tells roaming workers instantly what printers are available to their laptop for fast printing options, while both Mobile Express and Global Print Driver eliminate the need to update the driver when future Xerox products are released.
“No two mobile workers are the same – from the executive reviewing a presentation on his phone en route to a staff meeting to the Paris-based employee working at the New York headquarters – but all need an easy and secure way to print,” said Chris Aked, Marketing Manager – Solutions, Xerox UK. “Our approach delivers simplicity for any location, helping mobile workers focus more on their business and less on how to print.”
Smart printing via smart phone
The Xerox Mobile Print Solution allows users to print from e-mail-enabled devices without having to download drivers or applications. Users simply e-mail the file in its original format, such as Microsoft Word or Adobe PDF, to a secure server. A confirmation code is then e-mailed to the user to securely release the document for printing from any Xerox Extensible Interface Platform®-enabled multifunction printer (MFP). 
The Xerox Mobile Print Solution runs on a company’s private server to maintain full compliance with the existing security infrastructure. The solution also:
  • Preserves all formatting and data when printing Microsoft Office documents, just like printing from the desktop.
  • Offers full preview of the document on the MFP’s user interface before printing.
  • Provides the same print settings such as duplex, colour and finishing options that are available to users on a desktop.
Simplified print drivers
Enhancements have also been added to both the Xerox Mobile Express and Global Print Drivers. These tools allow workers to print to virtually any printer or MFP available on the network, regardless of location or brand, and reduce the time spent managing print drivers for various devices. 
The updated drivers: 
  • Eliminate the need for IT professionals to install new drivers to support full functionality on current and future Xerox products.
  • Provide access to the latest set of features on Xerox printers and MFPs such as Colour by Words, which displays simple words to select colours such as “red apple” or “blue sky” for easy and accurate colour printing. 
  • Help workers identify print jobs in busy workgroups without banner pages by automatically including user and job information in the unused page margin eliminating wasted pages.
  • Offer Earth Smart print driver defaults that can be set to include two-sided printing, proof print and draft mode.
With the new Global Print Driver, IT administrators can also “push” driver settings out to employees on the network, such as duplex printing as a default. Also, with the unique Application Default settings, printing from different applications is extremely simple and helps to avoid wasted prints due to the use of incorrect settings.
The Xerox Mobile Print Solution will be available for early customer installs beginning in the fourth quarter, with general worldwide availability in early 2011.
