Helping businesses move their workplace infrastructure to the cloud is an important part of MyQ’s mission, so integration with Universal Print was a done deal from the start. Also, M365 products and services are used by many MyQ customers worldwide, and MyQ wants to do its part to enable their successful growth and technological advancement.
Through the integration of Universal Print and MyQ X, customers can now send their print tasks securely to their office printers via the Universal Print service hosted in the cloud, and also remotely access their MyQ Web UI. They can do this from anywhere they are – home, tearoom or a train – because they will not need VPN connection.
When a business opts for MyQ X, internet connection is all their users need to get their files printed with all the benefits of both Universal Print and MyQ X as a print management solution.
Universal Print is behind the driverless connection of new printers, while MyQ makes sure even aged devices are covered, as they would not be compatible with Universal Print on their own.
Secure private cloud printing with MyQ
The connector to Universal Print is built into MyQ X, so there is no need for additional downloads. After the admin makes the service available in the company’s M365, the user can perform a single sign-on and from then on enjoy all the advantages of cloud printing, where scalability, flexibility and availability are perhaps the most notable.
Once the print button is clicked, the sender’s print job is encrypted and transmitted to the cloud. After this it gets securely accounted for by MyQ X, which is responsible for central monitoring and management. That means the business upholds security standards as far as tracking goes, and users retrieve their documents only after MyQ authenticates them. They will be offered the nearest printer based on their geolocation, but with all printers connected through MyQ X, the ultimate choice where the files will be printed is completely up to them.
MyQ supports hybrid installations as well
Hybrid working environments are not counted out. For various good reasons, some companies will always favor on-premise solutions or their combination with cloud-based solutions. MyQ is very flexible in this regard. Servers can remain installed locally and remote printing with Universal Print can be a welcome additional bonus.
The joint offer of MyQ X and Universal Print may prove an important step towards cloud transformation, and it puts printing on the list of activities that can be now done 100% remotely. Migrating printing services to the cloud saves IT staff a considerable amount of time and gives employees a user experience that rhymes with the 21st century.
