Android users can now easily print without additional downloads or setting configurations and realise the benefits of enterprise print management
Sydney, Australia – Y Soft® Corporation, a leading enterprise office solution provider and Mopria Alliance member, has announced that YSoft SafeQ is the first Mopria certified enterprise print server.
Y Soft achieved the certification by closely working with the Mopria Alliance and developing a mobile integration gateway between Mopria Print Service and YSoft SafeQ 6 print server. The mobile integration gateway enables wireless printer discovery for any Android mobile device user including individual consumers or those within an enterprise. For the first time, Y Soft is making its technology – including pull printing, reporting and secure printing – available to all individual Android mobile device users by supporting the Mopria Print Service with the YSoft SafeQ print server. YSoft SafeQ enterprise users can also enjoy the full functionality of YSoft SafeQ through the mobile integration gateway.
The Mopria Print Service enables Android mobile device users to easily print to any Mopria certified printer with no additional setup. Mopria is supported by the world’s largest print manufacturers and the Mopria Print Service is available as a free download in the Google Play™ Store.
“With the YSoft SafeQ Print Server any Android mobile device user can easily print from their favorite app,” said Brent Richtsmeier, Chairperson of the Mopria Alliance Steering Committee. “Our certification process includes optimising the user experience and ensuring future and legacy interoperability. We are pleased to bestow certification on YSoft SafeQ as the first enterprise print server to earn the distinction.”
Prior to Mopria Print Service and the YSoft SafeQ Print Server, users had to go through various steps to attempt to connect their Android mobile device to a cloud-based printer. These steps included downloading specialised apps or complicated configurations on their computer.
The Mopria Print Service guarantees that users can print easily from Android applications that include a dedicated print button or by using the Share-to-Print feature when using the Mopria Print Service version 2.3. YSoft SafeQ Print Server is compatible with the current Mopria Print Service 2.3.
“Printing from mobile devices should be as simple as it is from the desktop,” said Wouter Koelewijn, Chief of Products, Y Soft Corp. “We are thrilled that the YSoft SafeQ print management technology we provide enterprise customers will now be available to any consumer who may use their Android mobile device for personal or business use through the Mopria Print Service and the YSoft SafeQ mobile integration gateway.”
Y Soft has been an Executive Member of the Mopria Alliance since 2016. It works closely with other alliance members such as Adobe, Canon, HP, Samsung, Xerox, Konica Minolta, Qualcomm, Lexmark, Kyocera, Toshiba, Brother, Epson, Fuji Xerox, Microsoft, NEC, Pantum, Ricoh, Sharp, Dell and Primax to simplify printing from smartphones, tablets and other devices.
