EveryonePrint has developed a Chrome Extension to its multi-tenant cloud print infrastructure platform HybridCloud Platform (HCP).
Google’s announcement that support for Google Cloud Print (GCP) will be deprecated at the end of the year, has forced organisations to look for an alternative print solution and migrate their print services prior to the end of the calendar year. With EveryonePrint’s new Chrome Extension, users printing from Chromebooks using Google Cloud Print, can easily migrate to HCP, and enjoy the same printing experience enjoyed by PC and Mac users.
“Leveraging EveryonePrint’s cloud infrastructure and extending HCP’s compatibility to include Google’s ecosystem of hardware and identity management solutions, provides organisations invested in Google as a platform with an easy way to streamline the print infrastructure and benefit from the agility and innovation of cloud technology with little risk or investment,” said Tavs Dalaa, CEO, EveryonePrint.
“With HCP, there’s no requirement to install any applications on-premise, customers can simply turn off GCP and switch to HCP to provide Chromebook users with a range of flexible printing options, such as direct print, secure print and finishing options,” he added.
HCP is designed to work across all printer models and all brands. It removes the requirement to qualify and install multiple drivers, install printers on numerous devices, or manage print queues.
EveryonePrint explained that existing HCP customers can simply deploy the Chrome Extension for HCP via the Google Admin Console, and roll-out the pre-configured extension to all users. The solution also provides users with the flexibility to install and configure the HCP Chrome Extension from their desktop if required.
With this latest update, individuals can submit print jobs directly from their Chromebook and pick up the printouts at the printer. It is also possible to use QR codes for secure pull printing. And for devices already installed with card readers, secure print release can also be enabled with a contactless swipe of an ID card.
