B Y O D – Printing & Scanning From Your Mobile Device

One of the buzzwords we are seeing around presently, is BYOD – Bring Your Own Device

We all know how convenient it is to print straight from your smartphone or tablet right? But did you know that you can also scan from your SHARP MFP straight back to your mobile device too?

As well as some of our devices being AirPrint enabled, there is a free app available for most mobile devices.

 

SHARP’s mobile print and scan solution for popular iOS, Android™, or Windows® mobile devices Sharpdesk-Mobile

Optimise the benefits of mobile working with Sharpdesk Mobile; Sharp’s powerful, cutting edge mobile printing and scanning application.  Users can connect to supported SHARP MFPs via wireless network from their iOS, Android™, or Windows® device for hassle-free printing, simplified scanning or seamless collaboration with other applications.

Hassle-free Printing

Simplified Scanning

Scan paper documents to PDF, JPEG, TIFF or PNG files for easy access by simply scanning from a SHARP MFP to your mobile device. The mobile device’s profile can be stored as a “scan-to” location on the MFP for easy access.
