I’ve covered HP ePrint’s technology enabling smartphones to print files to any ePrint enabled devices. These new devices (and upgraded devices) are directly connected to the Internet and have email addresses.
Today HP announced that more than 4,300 The UPS Store locations nationwide are now a part of the HP ePrint Public Print Locations. So you’re in Kansas City, Los Angeles or some small town in Oklahoma (nod to Becky McCray author of Small Town Rules) and you need to print a document that’s on your smartphone (or your notebook computer) simply EMAIL the document to one of the HP ePrint Public printers and pick it up.
Their press release reads:
Customers can geolocate the nearest The UPS Store location and then submit a print job to receive a simple and secure retrieval code. Upon arrival at The UPS Store location, the customer provides the retrieval code to a store associate, who will print the documents. Users also can print documents multiple times over a seven-day period using the same secure retrieval code.
“By offering HP ePrint services through The UPS Store network, mobile workers now have the ability to be as productive on the road as they are in the office,” said Bruce Dahlgren, senior vice president, Managed Enterprise Solutions, Printing and Personal Systems Group, HP. “HP ePrint is a great example of the cloud enabling customer-driven innovation for greater access to information, no matter where you are.”
Here’s what I suggest? Download the HP ePrint Service app to your phone NOW, so when you need to print and you’re away from the office – you can do it.
