EMP Tech Tips

Printing from the Cloud

So, you are getting into the new age with Cloud-based software.  This software now allows you to run the application from anywhere, on any device, not just in your corporate IT infrastructure.  We all know that this has been a good thing this year with many people now having to work remotely. 

But what about printing?  Particularly printing to a label printer and from a mobile device.

We have seen many of our customers struggle with this.  Also, we have seen a solution from Zebra that does not get talked about very often or publicized very well.  The product is called Cloud Connect.

There are a few caveats.  First, the Zebra printer needs to be a newer one that is running Link OS.  Second, your cloud application needs to be capable of a REST API.  But both of those are probably already true.  If not, you can upgrade your printer to solve that issue, and EMP can write a custom interface to your application that has a REST API.  Either way, printing to your Zebra label printer from the Cloud is possible.

One thing is certain, the EMP Tech Group can help you with these business hurdles.  Contact us today to learn more and to meet with our Technical Services team to explore how we can help!
