On-demand printing is now available thanks to the Fuji Xerox Printers SMART series range of multifunction printers. Offering the latest technology in print management, on-demand printing promises to save you time, money and stress.
Research suggests that 37% of SME staff lose up to two hours per week on printing related issues. That adds up to 100 hours each year, per staff member. Studies also show that on average, staff waste up to 15 minutes manually redirecting print jobs to another device, or give up altogether. It’s a massive unseen cost to the SME sector, wasting staff productivity and hindering efficiency.
All of this can be overcome with the latest printing technology which allows a print job to be held until the user is ready to collect their document.
When they’re ready they simply walk up to their closest device and type in their PIN. All of their personal print jobs are shown on the control panel, and they simply release the jobs they need. If their local device is busy or out of operation, they can simply go to their next available device and retrieve it from there.
How many of us are guilty of leaving personal and confidential documents on printers around the office? Not only is it unprofessional, it can open up your business to potential risk if those documents are commercially sensitive or contain the personal information of employees.
Thankfully, it’s an issue you no longer have to deal with. Using our SMART series range of multi-function printers, you have access to Tap ’n’ Go printing.
The way Tap ‘n’ Go addresses this issue is simple but effective – instead of sending the print job directly to the printer, it is sent instead to their nearby device where they are held, ready for release. Staff can then retrieve their print jobs from any device that’s on their network by identifying themselves when they are standing in front of the printer (by PIN or security card).
Up until recently, the cost of the software used to manage on-demand printing meant that only corporate or government organisations could enjoy the benefits that Tap ‘n’ Go brings to a busy workplace.
Thankfully our new SMART series range of multifunction printers includes an optional feature called Server-less On-Demand Print.
With this option enabled, any organisation is able to benefit from a Tap ‘n’ Go print environment without the need for network server software. Up to 5 (five) devices can be shared this way, for a fraction of the cost.
This Tap 'n' Go feature is one of the many innovative options of the new Smart Series devices, a flexible platform that can be configured to meet your exact business needs.
Fuji Xerox Printers has redesigned Tap 'n' Go technology to put all its benefits into the hands of small to medium businesses. Tap 'n' Go printing is now available in the SMART Series range of multifunction devices. These devices are more than just printers; they deliver a complete business solution in a compact desktop design.
