RFID Secures Printing Process in Public Spaces
ThinPrint's ezeep system allows users in co-working spaces, libraries or schools to launch a printing function from their laptop or other device, then go to any ezeep printer, tap an RFID card against a reader and prompt their personal document to be printed.
Oct 15, 2018—
ThinPrint's Cloud Services division has released an RFID-based printing solution known as ezeep to make printing more secure, as well as more automatic, in public spaces. The LF or HF RFID-based system is designed to match an individual with a printer and the documents he or she is trying to print, thereby ensuring that documents are not printed unless the recipient is at the printer to receive them. Dozens of organizations are now using or trialing the technology, ThinPrint reports.
The ezeep solution is intended to provide users with greater control of the documents they print. In a public place in which there may be an entire bank of printers, individuals can utilize the system to determine exactly where their paperwork will print, and only once they are standing at that printer.
While paper printing is less common than it was decades ago, Volkmer says, companies still often require the printing of documents—sometimes those that are sent to workers remotely by management or by other parties. How print-based data is managed has been changing as well, he notes. "About four years ago," Volkmer states, "it became obvious that solutions are moving to the cloud."
The company's customers were interested in cloud-based services to make connections between a computer and a printer fast and easy. At the same time, he says, "Co-working spaces are becoming more mature, with more corporate-type clients." This means there is greater demand for all of the necessary amenities, including secure printing.
