We get asked this question a lot: Why use FingerPrint when an iOS app will do the same thing? To answer this question, it’s important to understand how printing from the iPad and iPhone works and why you don’t need a 3rd party app to print, even if you have an older printer.
Came across an interesting article the other day that we thought we’d share. We’ve written about how businesses are using iPads to increase efficiency in their offices. But how do larger businesses deal with having hundreds or thousands of iPads? How do you get the business apps on each iPad that the company requires on such a large scale? Who manages this?
Needless to say, there are certainly some growing pains in the quest for a more mobile, yet connected, workforce.
Enterpriseios.com is a great resource for those who are deploying iOS devices in an enterprise environment. Of course FingerPrint is pretty great software to have in the toolbox for you enterprise IT professionals, because a single copy on a print server can AirPrint™ enable all your printers, and there is absolutely nothing that needs to be installed on iPads and iPhones. Imagine only needing to install one or even a few dozen copies of FingerPrint in your office instead of trying to install hundreds or thousands printing apps to your fleet of iPads.

FingerPrint has solved government gridlock! Maybe not, but certainly an efficient use of government dollars.
Check out this use-case from the Nevada State Legislature:
The IT Services folks at the NV Legislative Counsel Bureau recently deployed FingerPrint for use by the State Legislators while in session so they can print Bills and BDR’s (Bill Draft Requests - I had to ask myself…) from their iPads. FingerPrint is deployed in their main location which comprises 3 buildings allowing the legislators to print to a group of shared printers. In this particular use-case FingerPrint could potentially be used by over 100 people.
This is really funny. Gotta love The Onion!
