"PageScope Mobile for Android", launched in April 2012, has received high reputation among business users worldwide as an application that connects Android devices with the bizhub to wirelessly print documents, e-mails and web pages held on the Android devices. Also, it enables users to initiate bizhub’s scan job from mobile devices to save and print documents and pictures.
This version upgrade enables the "PageScope Mobile for Android" app to be connected with external cloud services such as Google Drive*2 or Dropbox*3 in response to the growing needs of mobile users.
Also to accommodate the requests of the increasing numbers of "bring your own device" (BYOD) users, it enables access to existing file servers*4 for the first time in the industry*5, in order to maintain and build a secured print environment by utilizing the existing file servers in corporations.
This function makes it possible to provide the same level of work environment, even through remote access such as from outside the company while enhancing productivity, work efficiency and reducing additional operating cost.
Additionally, in order to cater to the growing needs for an optimized print environment in the office, this application can be also linked with A4-sized MFPs or bizhub PRO series production print systems along with A3-sized MFPs to extend user accessibility.
Furthermore, the application user interface has adopted the same design as of INFO-Palette in the bizhub C754 and bizhub C554 series*6 as operating panel which gives the users an intuitive and smartphone-like operability for various functions.
Konica Minolta is committed to continue offering innovative solutions to fulfill the diverse needs of office work through increasing use of mobilization and cloud computing, thereby contributing to enhancement of productivity and convenience to customers with our communication message of "Giving Shape to Ideas."
