HP Roam, a serverless print management solution.
What is HP Roam?
HP Roam for Business is a universal business printing experience that reshapes how innovative organizations print. You can replace traditional, printer-specific drivers with an intuitive print experience that is simple to use, is scalable, and provides a natural experience across desktop and mobile devices. Customer and company data are protected by advanced security features such as encryption, authentication, and integration with HP ID.
Mobile professionals can now submit print jobs while on the go from any device, and release at any Roam-enabled office printer—simply and securely. Print jobs are submitted to the cloud as users create or consume content.
Prints can then be securely retrieved from any enabled device in the office or home office.
There's no need to worry about device-to-printer compatibility or connectivity.
