Print Problems Need Savvy Solutions

Let's say, for a moment, that you don't have managed print to help streamline and organize your workflows. Here are a few scenarios that show the "print problems" you might be running into:

  • #1: Abandoned documents

Someone prints a document and is on their way to the machine, but then they get pulled aside to discuss something else or solve a problem--and just like that, the document is forgotten. It's abandoned on the printer tray where it could fall into the wrong hands.

  • #2: Bad timing

The printer is down, but not everyone knows that. Someone hit "print," and now they have to wait next to the machine so they can grab the document as soon as the printer is fixed.

  • #3: Printing chaos

Two people tried to print at the same time, and now their documents are all mixed up.

  • #4: Disappearing documents

Someone gets to the printer only to find that their document is nowhere to be found. The last person to use the printer must have accidentally taken it--so now it's a scramble to find the document.

So, what can you do about all of these print problems? Simple: try follow-me printing! Follow-me printing allows you to link your devices and machines so that print jobs "follow" you, waiting for you to enter a unique code before they're released. It improves security, minimizes frustrations, eliminates inefficiencies, and helps everyone in your workplace print with more confidence.
