Mobile printing in the public library arrives with netloan Wi-Fi print
Lorensbergs, the leading library software provider, has launched a new wireless printing solution for public libraries. Netloan Wi-Fi print provides library users with the ability to print wirelessly from their mobiles, tablets and laptops, including Apple, Android and Windows devices.
This latest innovation from the netloan portfolio of library solutions comes at a time when internet usage via mobile devices is increasing at an astonishing rate and library staff are receiving customer requests for wireless printing on a daily basis. The UK launch of the new service sees the first wireless printing solution designed to meet the specific needs of public library authorities.
The provision of wireless printing as a new public library service is set to enliven interest and increase footfall in libraries while building on past and ongoing Wi-Fi and printer hardware investments. Lorensbergs’ delivery of the new capability has proved timely with new government funding for library Wi-Fi recently announced in the 2015 budget. According to recent research, Wi-Fi roll out is complete across only 40% of library authorities.
Richard Terry, netloan Product Manager, says: “Netloan supports approximately half of all public library authorities in managing their printing services. The new Wi-Fi print module extends the capability so that all printing administration is streamlined within the library, whether from PCs, laptops, mobiles or tablets.”
Lorensbergs’ Managing Director, Anna Crilly, adds: “It’s our aim to make librarians’ jobs easier and to support them in raising library service standards for all concerned. Netloan Wi-Fi print provides an exciting new service for libraries to offer their communities. The introduction of wireless printing will enhance the profile of libraries on the highstreet and the netloan solution facilitates the provision of a new and important public service.”
