Cloud technology is facilitating the strong trends and changes to the way we all do business. These days, employers and employees are more likely to work from home, on the road and from other off-site locations like cafes with only needing to step into the traditional office setting to pick up critical business documents. Having the ability to access and print documents directly from a smart device will become an essential capability to ensure the efficiency and productivity of small businesses.

The emergence of the mobile workforce, with research suggesting that 58% of the global workforce now regularly works away from the traditional office with 57% of employees accessing corporate data on a personal Smartphone or tablet and as result there is an increasing trend towards cloud computing.

Research completed by CuriousRubik found that:

  • More than 58% of businesses today use cloud computing for IT related tasks.
  • 82% of companies have saved money just by implementing the cloud network in their infrastructure.
  • More than 80% of the companies using cloud services have shown an increase in productivity within the first 6 months
  • The amount of traffic hosted through cloud networks will be tripled by 2017

Fuji Xerox Printers explains how the next generation of multifunction laser office printers are utilising cloud technology to meet the growing mobility needs for small business.

Cloud Computing Offers Excellent Mobility Opportunities

In today’s global and forever changing market, it is more important than ever for all your employees and stakeholders to have easy access to data. Instead of storing it on hard drives and e-mailing presentations back and forth, all your employees can simply access the cloud when they need something.

The Fuji Xerox DocuPrint CM315 z is Wi-Fi Direct enabled allowing devices to connect and print easily without requiring a wireless access point. Meanwhile, AirPrint and Google Cloud Print enables you to print directly from your mobile device without the need to download mobile apps or to install print drivers.

The 315 series also offers built-in Near Field Communication (NFC) technology. NFC is a form of contactless communication between a mobile device and the printer. Wave your mobile device over the printer, the Print Utility automatically launches and you are ready to print or scan.

These features have become essential to businesses with employees who travel a lot or who are always on the run, like sales reps. They won’t need to phone the office and ask for quotes, presentations, information and data anymore when they can simply get it themselves from the cloud directly from their phone.

Cloud Adoption Promotes Better Collaboration

If you have employees who work in the field or multiple office locations, the Fuji Xerox Cloud Services Hub can be great time saver for everyone: people can edit and work on a single document together even if they are miles away from each other. Think about this scenario: a sales rep needs a presentation for an upcoming meeting, but he also wants to make some changes to it to suit the potential client better. He can do the changes on his way to the office (even from his phone) then print the presentation and only spend two minutes at the office in order to grab it and be on his way. The same goes for tradies or real estate agents who can simply edit presentations and price quotations on the run.

Cloud enabled printers and devices like the Fuji Xerox DocuPrint 315 Series can make repetitive and collaborative tasks more efficient for your mobile and stationary workforce.
