HP Offers HP ePrint Service App for iPhone

HP today announced the HP ePrint service App for iPhone is now available on the App Store.

Now millions of iPhone users can search for and download the app to unlock the power of the HP ePrint Enterprise solution on their device. The HP ePrint Enterprise solution allows users to print within their enterprise network via an HP Managed Print Services engagement, and users can also download the HP ePrint service App to print at thousands of HP ePrint Mobile Print Locations worldwide, including FedEx Office® and Hilton Worldwide.

"By 2014, 90 percent of global Fortune 1000 companies will implement cloud printing services for mobile personnel, showing what HP has known for years – mobility is not a trend, it's a way of life," said Bruce Dahlgren, senior vice president, Managed Enterprise Solutions, Imaging and Printing Group, HP. "We are committed to anticipating our customer needs and delivering innovative solutions like HP ePrint Enterprise for our enterprise customers that need simple, secure mobile access to printing."

Making printing as mobile as business users

With the launch of the HP ePrint service App, iPhone users can now print emails, presentations, reports, travel documents and more to any networked enterprise printer. To help mitigate security risks, all print jobs are managed by HP ePrint Enterprise Administrative Server software, ensuring that data is kept within the company's own network.

iPhone users can easily search a directory of available print locations and use their smartphone's GPS functionality to navigate to HP ePrint Mobile Print Locations that include print and copy retail stores as well as hotels and airport lounges.

FedEx Office implemented the HP ePrint solution across its network of more than 1,800 locations nationwide last year, giving users of BlackBerry® smartphones – and now iPhone – access to ePrint through the world's largest retail printing network.

"With these ePrint enhancements, iPhone users can now print documents directly from their devices to our stores using our FedEx Office Print & Go service," said Brian Philips, president and chief executive officer, FedEx Office. "We are the only national print retailer to offer smartphone printing – making us the clear leader in the marketplace with our extensive portfolio of products and services."

Many HP ePrint Mobile Print Locations, including Hilton Worldwide, are powered by the PrinterOn® network of public printers.

The HP ePrint service App is available for free from the App Store on iPhone or at
