However, now that you’ve taken this big step forward and your MFP has settled into your office, you may not realize all of the ways that it can positively impact your business, your operations and your bottom line. Here are some tips for getting the most out of your new MFP.
Work Smarter, Not Harder
A multifunction printer is all about improving productivity and workplace efficiency. With more offices digitizing important documents and records, having easy access to a cloud network or storage provider is imperative.
For MFPs with Smart UX, cloud services like Google Drive, Evernote and Dropbox are directly accessible from the printer rather than the PC. So users can connect and complete tasks instantly, decreasing the amount of time needed to search and locate documents for required printing tasks.
For example, on Samsung’s MX7 series, cloud services can be quickly accessed by selecting the Cloud Agent folder on the main screen. There, users will be able to select their desired document and function.
In addition to leveraging different cloud printing options, users can also make edits directly from the printer. Enter Hancom Office 2014, a Samsung Printing app designed for these circumstances or any time when quick edits on documents are needed before printing, sending or faxing. So, if you notice an error on a document just before printing, this means you can fix things right on the spot, without having to run back to your desk or resend the entire print job.
Other changes can also be made to documents using the Smart UX Center, such as coloring, bolding or underlining text, as well as accessing additional fonts, border options, hyperlinks and image options.
Connect Your Mobile Life to Your Office Life
Most working professionals use their mobile devices to manage at least some of their work tasks these days, and thanks to their connectivity, many MFPs can offer them printing on the go. With Samsung’s Mobile Print app for example, available for download in the Samsung Printing app center, you can add printing to that list, as documents can be sent from a wide variety of sources such as photo gallery, email, or your cloud drive directly to a registered Samsung printer and be immediately printed or added to a queue. With more offices allowing workplace flexibility and mobility, many users will find this feature particularly useful.
Samsung’s Send Anywhere for Printer app works in a similar manner, enabling files and documents to be seamlessly shared between mobile devices and printers.
With these and other intuitive apps and MFP features, working from home, on the road or at another office location is seamless.
Safe and Secure
After making the decision to switch an MFP, offices can also experience a new level of printer reliability and security. From remote fleet management to logins and pull printing, today’s new MFPs offer many options for keeping networks and documents secure, as well as for maximizing uptime.
Samsung’s MFP Support – RemoteCall app removes any unnecessary costs and time wasted waiting for engineers to address problems or issues with the printer. RemoteCall enables service engineers to connect to the device without having to be physically onsite – reducing service costs and valuable employee time.
Printing Security Core and Secure Login Core are two other ways Samsung Printing works to protect valuable data and information. Printing Security Core works as a server-less secure pull-printing solution, while Secure Login Core provides a simple access and control solution.
Always Staying on Top
Usability and performance are key factors that set Samsung’s line of professional multifunction printers apart from the rest of the market. The Smart UX Center, its applications and features are designed to maximize efficiency and productivity, and Samsung and its partners are constantly updating and introducing new apps to ensure that each printing task remains seamless. As your business fully embraces its transition to an MFP, the more efficient and productive it will be.
