To meet the growing demand for mobile printing solutions, Develop introduced its ineoPRINT app. Providing the administrator has given access to the mobile user to use the network, this app provides simple connection to the MFD, individuals can walk up to any ineo device, scan in the QR code displayed on the home screen and they are connected.

The ineo range also includes support for NFC (Near Field Communication). The systems’ NFC capability means a mobile device can be used to provide secure print release, replacing traditional authentication tools such as PIN numbers or card readers.

The Develop ineoPRINT app is free to download for the Android and Apple iOS operating systems.

Designed for the modern workspace, engineered for business and featuring PrecisionCore printhead technology, the Epson WF-3720DWF provides a range of flexible printing and scanning features. For printing on the go, there’s Wi-Fi connectivity to print from anywhere in the office; Wi-Fi Direct to print from compatible wireless devices without a Wi-Fi network; and NFC to print with a tap of a compatible Android device on the printer.

Combined with Epson’s DURABrite Ultra Ink, the WF-3720DWF produces professional looking documents that are water, smudge and highlighter resistant. The high yield inks are also great value as they’re supplied individually, so only the colour used is replaced.
