Singapore – June 3, 2014 – Samsung Electronics Singapore today unveiled powerful line-up of printers that combine NFC (Near Field Communication) and Wi-Fi® Direct technologies, Business Core Printing Solutions that enable greater efficiencies for small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs), and a web-based XOA open platform tool to expand the number of printer devices compatible with various B2B solutions.
“Samsung is a proven leader in mobile printing through its innovation especially in the field of small, easy-to-use printers,” said Simon Tan, Head of Print Solutions Business, Samsung Electronics Singapore. “As mobile becomes more central to the everyday working environment, the Samsung NFC-enabled printers let SMBs conduct their business seamlessly as well as catering for the growing Bring Your Own Device trend. Our printing solution will become more than just a piece of hardware that prints documents. It will become an essential solution for companies.”
Samsung new line-up of NFC (Near Field Communication)-enabled printers include colour-laser printers and multi-function printers (MFPs) Xpress C1810W, C410W and C460 series, as well as the mono-laser printers and MFPs, Xpress M2070, M2020 and M2885 series.
Mobile Printing Made Easy
Printing has never been easier. The new Samsung NFC-enabled printers connect wirelessly with mobile devices for fast, integrated and convenient printing on the go. Users can effortlessly and securely print pictures, documents, e-mails and web content by simply tapping their smartphones on the printer. Scanning and faxing documents is also made easy as users are able to sync the contacts on their smartphones with the printers.
The NFC function also made it possible to connect their smartphone to as many as 20 printers with a few simple taps.
With Samsung Mobile Print App, users are now able to print everything from PDF files to Microsoft Office documents such as Excel spreadsheets and PowerPoint presentations directly from their smartphones.
Users who do not have NFC enabled smartphones or have not installed the Samsung Mobile Print App on to their phones can still benefit from the printers as they support Google Cloud Print. This solution allows users to print over the web from anywhere with any smart device.
Additionally, owners of Samsung’s GALAXY smartphones and GALAXY Tab series have the added benefit of being able to print images from the gallery app, documents, email and web browser pages.
Exquisite Colour and Design
Samsung’s unique Rendering Engine for Clean Page technology guarantees professional quality output with sharp text and clean images, and the polymerised toner makes for strikingly vivid and glossy colour printing.
Samsung’s new NFC-enabled colour laser printer and MFPs were awarded the prestigious iF product Design award 2013 for its ergonomic design and ease-of-use.
Enhanced Efficiency with Customised Printing Solutions for SMBs
Samsung understands that SMBs need customisable workflow solutions that meet specific document-handling needs, all while maintaining high security and productivity. Because SMBs typically lack the scale of resources available to enterprise businesses, easy management solutions that fit tight budgets is of utmost importance.
To meet these needs for SMBs, Samsung introduced its Business Core™ Printing Solutions, BCPS, which provide the essential suite of offerings to create a seamless workflow experience. BCPS is embedded on Samsung printers and MFPs thus it does not need separate server. Thanks to its server-less printing solutions, SMBs can reduce IT resource including IT management personnel and server purchasing cost.
Included in the Business Core Printing Solutions offering are two packages, an Output Management Pack and a Document Management Pack that contain five key solutions for heightened productivity, cost-efficiency, security, ease of use and simplified maintenance tailored to SMBs.
Expansion of Compatible Devices via a Web-Based XOA Platform
In 2010, Samsung Electronics released XOA Embedded, a flexible and powerful open platform for running business solutions on printers and MFPs. However, the platform could only be applied to high-end products, such as A3 copiers, because it required high hardware specifications.
To address this limitation, Samsung introduced the XOA Web platform, which does not need high hardware specifications because it is based on a web-based server. The platform is thereby compatible with a variety of devices from low-end A4 MFPs to high-end A3 copiers to run business solutions.
SMBs customers can now enjoy the benefits enhanced productivity, security and device management solutions according to their needs in addition to saving cost. Additionally, resellers and dealers can offer customer-oriented solutions running on smaller A4 devices that better meet their customers’ needs.
The new Samsung Xpress C1810, M2070, M2020 and M2885 series are now available at all major consumer electronics stores in Singapore, while the Xpress C410W and C460 series printers are scheduled to be launched by end July.
The Samsung Mobile Print app can be downloaded for free from the Google Play Store and Samsung Apps. More detailed information on Samsung’s mobile printing is available on the smart printing microsite: http://www.samsung.com/global/smartprinting/index.html.
