Cloud services have understandably risen in popularity, so therefore it is of no surprise that this has now extended into our printing environments.
Traditional printing has had to use cables and whilst this has always been reliable, there has also been potential issues with connectivity, software driver problems and sometimes connectivity issues.
If you choose to explore cloud printing, you will benefit from eliminating printer drivers as your printers will receive information for print via the cloud.

Cloud printing allows you to print from any web connected device, either a smart phone, computer or tablet. You can quickly discover printers that you can access, without any need to set up driver installations. However, cloud printing works with printers already in your office and cloud ready printers.
