Printing from the cloud

How a large company’s traveling executives securely print from wherever they are with cloud printing solutions

A major energy company with a nationwide customer base has multiple offices. A constant stream of executives travels to these locations, and they need to securely print documents, often finalised at the last minute, no matter where they are — while also complying with government document security regulations.

Cloud-based enterprise print management software will enable these executives to pull cloud printing from any Xerox® ConnectKey® Technology-enabled MFP in the print environment. In doing so, they also increase document security by requiring authentication for print/scan and copy functions.
