Developed to provide an easy mobile printing solution for business users of Apple iOS products such as an iPad or iPhone, the xPrintServer – Office Edition enables printing directly from the native print menu of the device to virtually any existing network-connected or USB printer without any apps to download, software to install, or the use of a computer.

"Since the introduction of the first xPrintServer product last December, I have observed a ready market for this type of printing solution, as an increasing number of business people are relying on their tablets and smart phones for work purposes," said
J. Gerry Purdy, Ph.D., principal analyst, MobileTrax LLC. "The new Office Edition of the xPrintServer boasts the same simplicity as its predecessor, while providing more robust enterprise features for IT managers, including Active Directory support and more control over user permissions and printing functionality as it relates to iOS devices. Additionally, it will enable USB printers to become network printers, so the users can print from their iOS devices right over the network. The xPrintServer - Office Edition is truly a timely product that addresses the growing adoption of mobile devices in businesses."
The soon-to-be released Office Edition comes with a wide range of robust features to support mobile printing throughout the enterprise.
