FedEx Office announced a new mobile printing app for both iPhone and Android devices. The FedEx Mobile Office app allows customers to manage print jobs from anywhere.
Documents saved on your mobile device, in emails, or in multiple cloud storage applications can be sent to a FedEx Office store for printing. You can pay for the print job from your phone and pick it up in person when you’re ready. FedEx Office can also send these print jobs to you.
Cloud services such as Box, Dropbox and Google Drive are already integrated with the FedEx Office mobile app. From the app, you can make changes to your documents and send them to any of over 1,800 FedEx Office locations for printing. FedEx claims that its app supports the following common file types:
The app is good for any small business owner who is always on the go. If you are traveling between cities and a report needs to be edited and reprinted, the changes can be made and a print job ordered from a smartphone or tablet. When you reach your destination, you can pick up the changes you made after leaving your office.
FedEx Office VP of Retail Marketing Randy Scarborough said in an announcement showcasing the new mobile app:
“Every day, we work with business people to better understand their problems and make sure we are providing the right solutions that are important to their success. We are proud to present our new printing apps to help mobile customers overcome the common challenge of printing easily and quickly from their phone and tablet. FedEx Office connects people to their work like no one else can.
The ability to ship ordered print jobs through the FedEx Office mobile app provides small business owners with personalized and specialized printing services. FedEx offers a line of specialty printing products, according to the company’s website. They range from canvas prints and full color posters to vinyl lettering. The options on the print job can be selected from the application. This includes the choice between color and black and white prints, the type of paper and how the job is finished – either stapled or spiral bound.
FedEx also offers the ability to track your print order. This includes its status in the store and where it is located if you have chosen to have it shipped directly to you.
