HP recently made its HP Latex Mobile application available to download worldwide. Unveiled four months ago at the SGIA show, the new large-format printing mobile app offers remote monitoring of HP Latex 310, 330 and 360 Printers, such as job information, print status and alerts.
With the HP Latex Mobile app, Print Service Providers (PSPs) can stay informed about the status of print jobs from anywhere in or out of the office and can track projects through completion, as well as monitor print status and supplies to 'avoid surprises'.
“PSPs have shown significant interest in the HP Latex Mobile app,” said Xavier Garcia, vice president and general manager, Large-Format Sign and Display Division, HP. “Remote monitoring of many aspects of business is now commonplace, so it’s natural to extend this flexibility to print jobs. The HP Latex Mobile app is a significant step forward in aligning printing operations with today’s business lifestyles.”
PSPs such as PressOn in the UK and Sprintout Digitaldruck GmbH in Germany are already using the HP Latex Mobile app. “The app is really great! If a customer calls for a last minute job I can give a fast answer because I know which material is on the printer at any time,” said Haldun Küp, chief technology officer, Sprintout Digitaldruck GmbH.
The HP Latex Mobile app is available for download for free from Google Play and the Apple App store. A version of the app designed for tablets will be available in mid-2015.
