Public printer for tenants and an easy for various devices to connect
Posted on 2014-03-13
I'm setting up a business center for an apartment complex.
the owners would like to have a printer that not only prints from the computers they provide but also from devices their tenanst bring. i.e. iphone, macbooks, androids, windows laptops.
It needs to be an easy solution so that users don't have to go through the driver installation, which many could do but would inevitably require tech support for many users at all times.
I know airprint from iphones/ipads is easy as long as the printer supports airprint.
I'm concerned about macbooks (maybe they use airprint to w/out drive installs) windows computers and the android devices.
Somehtin I've considered is hp e-print. You send an email and the device prints the email. Havent used it much but the install says there may be loss of formatting etc.
I'm thinking theirs other stuff out there to accommodate this. Any suggestions?
