Access Your Gmail Emails and Calendars Directly from your Printer’s Touch Screen

Being able to print on the go is fast becoming a standard requisite for many businesses. With the Kyocera Google Connector app, employees are able to access their Google accounts right at the touch screen control panel of the MFP (multifunctional printer).

With companies making the move from physical storage to the cloud, cloud print environments are becoming a necessity to have integrated into the business workflow. That’s why Kyocera Document Solutions, one of the world’s leading document solutions companies, developed the Google Connector app. While at the printer, one can: 


• View, compose, edit and search through Gmails 

Scan documents to store or use as attachments
View and print calendars


Kyocera continues to look at the evolving climate in business workflow needs as does Google. With Gmail reportedly being used by nearly 50% of small business employees, Kyocera sought out how to connect with Google’s cloud email service market to provide more integrated workflow opportunities. Through this Google partnership, Kyocera keeps the workforce mobile by enabling users to retrieve Gmail functionality on the individual MFPs without having to log in on a separate device. 

The development of business applications such as this have been a priority for Kyocera for years. They previously developed the Kyocera Cloud Connect, Mobile Print, and the Microsoft Exchange and SharePoint Connectors for easy to use printing via the cloud from smartphones, tablets and PCs.

When it comes to the security of cloud printing, Kyocera developed the technology of linking an organization’s Google cloud printing capabilities with leading print management solutions to ensure secure print release. Unique to Kyocera, the connection of a company’s Google Cloud Print account to their print management account creates the ultimate document security. In addition, all print jobs can be set to hold until the user authenticates. 

At one time, the “mobile” workforce meant having to lug a heavy suitcase of samples door to door. Today, it requires access to everything at your fingertips no matter where you are. Since BIS Office Systems is a Kyocera Premier Dealer, we can offer all of the solutions discussed above. Our managed document solutions work for you so you have more time for your business.
