The latest version of ineoPRINT v3.4.0 now supports ID and print authentication via a mobile device (Android / iOS). This means DSales now offers both NFC authentication for Android and Bluetooth LE authentication for iOS (iOS requires the Bluetooth LE option EK-609 to be installed in the Develop ineo+ multifunctional device).
The ID and print authentication function saves print data being sent from the user's mobile device in the secure ID and Print User Box of the ineo+ A3 MFP when user authentication is activated. When the user wants to print the job, they simply walk up to the MFP and touch their mobile device in the NFC Tag area of the Develop ineo MFP display to authenticate and the job is automatically released providing 'Touch & Print' functionality. This ensures confidential documents are not left in the output tray for anyone else to pick up.
A mobile device can also be to authenticate and log-in to a user's account at the ineo MFP when they want to copy or scan. This saves entering a user name and password or using IC card reader technologies to authenticate.
During pre-launch trials at the Develop London Technology Centre, Andrew Critchlow, DSales (UK) Technical and Training Manager said, "This solution is ideal for customers who want to control which users have access to the MFP using user authentication via mobile devices. Develop is providing leading edge solutions to meet the growing demand for mobile print."
The award winning Develop ineoPRINT app is free to download for the Android and Apple iOS operating systems.
