The number of functions and features available on Konica Minolta multi-function printers and copiers is astounding. In fact, we find that there are so many options available that often businesses are not always aware of everything their printer/copier can do. There are features that you may not be aware of that could be saving you time and increasing office productivity.
In this post, Chip Reihl, our general manager of sales, enlightens us on three features you can start taking advantage of at your office.
1.Mobile Printing App
As the workforce becomes more mobile, so are multi-function printers and copiers. No, the actual machine is not small enough to fit in a briefcase or purse—yet! You can take your printer or copier “with you” with the PageScope Mobile application for iPad, iPhone and Android devices. The app gives you the ability to use your mobile device to print, scan and view documents. You can learn more about the app and how to set it up in this previous blog post about PageScope Mobile.
2. Secure Print
Does your office print and copy confidential or private documents? Prevent unwanted eyes from looking at these documents with secure print. You can send the document to your Konica Minolta printer or copier and have it held confidentially until you are standing at the machine. A confidential code can then be entered at the multi-function printer to release the document and begin printing.
3. New Scan Formats
The newest color multi-function printer units offer advanced scanning capabilities. Have you ever received a paper document from someone that you wished you could edit? Up until this point, it required retyping the document to make your changes. With the new scan formats available from Konica Minolta, you are able to scan your document and convert to a Microsoft Word or Excel document ready for editing. You can also scan to MS Power Point and make instant slides for a presentation.
