Why Cloud Printing For Higher Education Institutions

An innovative way to support your students, digital transformation and the environment

 

Cloud Printing For Higher Education

ePRINTit is an early pioneer of cloud printing and first enhanced our portfolio in 2012 to be 100% cloud based utilizing the Microsoft Azure platform.

Enhance cloud printing technology at your institution and provide cloud-based printing as an innovative way to deliver unlimited content to your students. ePRINTit removes all print-server and print driver management from your IT department providing ultra-secure document protection for your students.

By enabling your students with a consistent, accessible and cost-effective solution for printing, not only will you be seen as an innovator in cloud printing solutions, but also generate new revenue from each print job for your institution.

Users get secure authenticated print and document storage with built in mobile applications in iOS and Android that connect Dropbox, OneDrive, Office 365, Box, Google Docs, your email clients as well as access to internal files systems and the Web.

Students can download our proprietary print drives in Chrome, Windows or Mac and can use a private web portal to load and manage all print files, scans and financial account information including PCI certified Payment Gateways for self management.

ePRINTit for higher education comes embedded and supported by HP OXP© Printers and Xerox ConnectKey© technology as well as installed on any Windows© 10 PC attached to any brand or single function to multi-function printer. Services can be connected to your Network as communication is only one way.

Ultra-Secure Platform: As an IT professional or a user, you need to ask all the right questions when it comes to security and the cloud and your important documents. ePRINTit is ready for you. Built on the trusted Microsoft Azure cloud solution, each organization gets their own private locker within the protected ePRINTit servers. Communications is one way, pulling documents from the students account. Each organization gets their own private URL to manage their users and printers.  Documents are only temporarily stored with user access to delete immediately or wait for the expired date.

Documents or images are stored using 256bit Sha-2 Encryption at rest. This encryption was designed by the National Security Agency (NSA) and is the standard method of encryption for the Federal Information Process Standards (FIPS).  Transport delivery is using TLS 1.2 replacing SSL providing a private and secure symmetric cryptography on transmitted documents. The server and client negotiate the details of which encryption algorithm and cryptographic keys to use before the first byte of data is transmitted. The negotiation of a shared secret is both secure (the negotiated secret is unavailable to eavesdroppers and cannot be obtained, even by an attacker who places themselves in the middle of the connection) and reliable (no attacker can modify the communications during the negotiation without being detected).

Earn more revenue: Build sustainable new income for your institution by diversifying revenue streams with cloud printing services. Let students pay for print jobs with their student cards, credit or debit cards or even cash, making transactions easy for them and profitable for your institution. With global payment gateways including STRIPE, AliPay, WeChat, iPAY88, Heartland, PayPal and PayTM enabled. More are being enabled every week so enquire about your Gateway.

Reduce IT Support and Cut Costs: Alleviate the printing pains on your IT support staff and eliminate labor intensive printing costs. Eliminate your Print-Servers and Print-Driver Management with ePRINTit’s single universal print driver. With a plug and play setup, the system is connected wirelessly with virtually no IT support required.  Students can self register or connect with your LDAP or AD. Reduce WAN usage through ePRINTit’s compression and file optimization. Files are actually processed into optimized and compressed print ready, Adobe© PDF’s in the Microsoft Azure Cloud.

Completely outsource your printing solutions and let us brand, install, monitor and support your Kiosk or embedded printer stations 24/7. Create positive cash flow without upfront costs. We will even partner you with local Managed Print Services companies for supplies and break-fix services.

Attract new students and visiting guests: Solve the issue of guest printing finally! Now get paid for printing for visiting patrons of your Labs and Libraries. Offer cloud printing on campus and join an elite network of providers who are recognized in ePRINTit’s directory of Public Print Locations. Whenever a user searches for a print location in your vicinity, your institution is shown in the search results. You don’t have to find these mobile customers – they’ll find you.

Benefits of Campus Printing for Students

Cloud campus printing is a service that allows your students to print their documents directly from their mobile device connected to the cloud network. Cloud printing connects digital devices like their smartphone, laptop, Chromebook, tablet and desktop with a printer station.

As a result, students will experience seamless, reliable and convenient printing across the campus, regardless of the device being used by them.

Cost Savings: The use of cloud printing allows students to print on-demand from any campus print station, saving them the cost and time of having to purchase a personal printer or wait for the library to open.

Environmentally Friendly: Promote green printing with your students and protect the environment. Cloud printing helps reduce your carbon footprint. By students printing documents over the cloud to campus printers, they will lower carbon emissions from transportation and reduce the amount of overall waste generated.

Use their own device: With cloud campus printing, students can use their smart phones or any device to print their documents without having to worry about printer compatibility issues or if there is a Lab computer available for them.

Convenience: The use of mobile cloud printing enables students the convenience and simplicity to print anything they want, whenever they want, wherever they are. Save students the frustration of having to wait for a specific time for printing shops to open or hours in line to print out their work assignments. They can even travel almost anywhere in the world to thousands of Libraries or Hotels and conveniently print their documents using their mobile phone and ePRINTit Public Printing services. (separate email or Mobile APP available)

Maximize Productivity: Enable secure file access for students to their mobile device, OneDrive, Office365, Dropbox, Google, Box and email accounts, all from one mobile app platform!

Document Security: Students can enjoy secure file access and document printing securely encrypted during both rest/transfer and are only released at the print station once they have been authenticated.
