SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 30, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Sepialine, an established San Francisco-based print management software company, today announced a new worldwide distribution agreement with EFI™, a world leader in customer-focused digital printing innovation. The agreement will expand Sepialine's end-user printing experience through added mobile printing capabilities.
Sepialine will add full integration of the EFI PrintMe® Mobile enterprise mobile printing software with its own Argos printer and copier management software to provide organizations with a robust tool to track and analyze both mobile and desktop printing. In addition, the new integration with PrintMe Mobile will allow easy user authentication from mobile devices to track all print jobs completed within a company.
"With the increase in the number of employee-owned devices used in the workplace, one of our biggest customer requests is the ability to print from a mobile device," said Alan Kasameyer, director of product management at Sepialine. "At the same time, our customers are looking for easy tracking and management of their mobile printing jobs. PrintMe Mobile makes it easy to account for all mobile printing so that businesses can monitor costs and bill clients appropriately."
For many companies, printing is an obvious and visible place to start tracking and lowering expenses. Other customers in service industries also need to track all print jobs to bill for reimbursable project expenses.
"Industry analysts from Harris Interactive have estimated that 81 percent of Americans use their personal electronic devices for work-related purposes," said John Henze, vice president of Fiery marketing for EFI. "The rapid adoption of Bring-Your-Own-Device (BYOD) policies has led to an increasing demand for enterprise mobile printing solutions. Employees using their mobile devices at work need to print in order to stay productive, and at the same time, their employers still need to be able to track print jobs and set enforceable printing parameters."
EFI's PrintMe Mobile enables Wi-Fi® printing from an iPad®, iPhone® or Android™ device to a company's printers regardless of brand or type. Employees can use the familiar "File to Print" command with one easy-to-use driver for Windows® PCs and Windows 8 tablets, or use the Mac Nearby Printer functionality to enable automatic discovery of printers.
PrintMe Mobile also supports Active Directory integration, making it easy for companies to store a list of employee devices and assign printer passwords. For employees without Windows domain credentials, the integration of PrintMe Mobile with Argos enables these users to authenticate against a user code defined in Argos instead of Active Directory.
Notes Kasameyer, "This means that even users without Windows credentials can still print via their mobile devices and have those prints tracked, authenticated and managed by Argos, so nothing is lost."
