Zenographics Announces MobilePrint For Wireless Printing, Faxing and Viewing

Travelers today need to stay connected to the Internet and their corporate databases while away from the office or home. This means that a great number of travelers carry portable computers or wireless Web-enabled PDAs with them while they travel.


Seventy-five percent of these travelers use their portable devices to read e-mail and attachments. After reviewing their e-mails many travelers would like to print a specific e-mail or an attachment while they are on the road. Unfortunately, for notebook users this often involves the complicated task of loading custom printer drivers, connecting to corporate intranets or finding print shops that will accept documents on floppy disk, then waiting while the application is loaded and the document is opened and printed. PDA users have even fewer options to print from their devices.


With rapid advances in PDAs, Web-enabled phones, and PocketPC devices, e-mails can now be viewed on many mobile devices. The need to carry a portable computer to read and answer e-mails or view attachments will diminish as Web-enabled phones become more commonplace, but people will still need to print e-mails, attachments and Web pages from their mobile devices.


MobilePrint enables the printing of e-mails, e-mail attachments and Web content to printers on corporate networks, or at print shops and fulfillment points near the mobile user. MobilePrint works from any Web-enabled phone or cellular device -- without the need for special hardware or printer drivers. MobilePrint also lets users fax e-mail attachments or download and view them on their mobile phone.


“MobilePrint brings universal wireless printing to the wireless Web,” stated Bob Romney, president of Zenographics. “MobilePrint's software-only approach means it can be rapidly disseminated, widely used and automatically updated and enhanced over time.”


MobilePrint includes the following benefits:

  • Print from your phone -- Select Print from your mobile phone, and e-mail, attachments and Web content print automatically.

  • Can be used anywhere there is an Internet-connected printer -- Hotels, lobbies, business centers, print shops, corporate networks.

  • No hardware to install. All software resides on the MobilePrint server. PC clients are updated automatically when necessary.

  • View attachments or Web content from your mobile phone. Select View from your mobile phone and view the text content of e-mail attachments or Web pages on your mobile phone.

  • Fax from your phone -- Select Fax from your mobile phone and Web content or e-mail attachments can be faxed to the location of your choice.

  • Driverless Printing -- No software drivers to install or configurations to change. Just browse to the MobilePrint site, enter your job ID and print automatically.

  • Secure -- Enter your ID for secure printing or configure MobilePrint for automatic enterprise printing.

  • Versatile -- automatic printing to corporate network printers without printer drivers, hardware or PC setup.

MobilePrint has been designed to meet the needs of the following markets:

  • Corporations with networked printers which want to provide access to their printers for employees with wireless devices.

  • Print service providers and copy shops that want to add mobile printing to the services they offer.

  • Wireless service providers who want to add printing options to the list of services they offer their customers.

  • ASPs that want to add print options to the suite of services they offer their customers.

  • Hotel chain and airport business offices and conference centers that want to provide the most convenient printing services for travelers.

  • Printer and copier OEMs who want to bundle or embed MobilePrint with their network- or Internet-attached output devices.
