Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, announced the availability of the EFI PrintMe mobile print solution for Canon imageRUNNER ADVANCE multifunction office products (MFPs). Developed by EFI utilizing Canon’s MEAP platform, EFI PrintMe provides an intuitive method for mobile device users to send documents through EFI’s PrintMe Service for output on Canon imageRUNNER ADVANCE MFPs. Offering significant flexibility and convenience, the new solution is ideal for mobile users who expect and demand print functionality from their mobile devices.
EFI PrintMe mobile print solution for Canon imageRUNNER ADVANCE supports Apple iOS, RIM Blackberry OS, and Google Android mobile platforms and the phone, tablet, and mobile device technologies based on those platforms including iPhone, iPad, Blackberry Smartphones and Android Smartphones. The support of all major mobile platforms and devices provides businesses and enterprises with the flexibility to provide their users with a broad variety of options for their mobile printing needs, as well as the benefit of keeping their current service provider to accommodate mobile printing.
