iOS (iPad) Printing - what's the best way?
We have 450 iPads, but no printing solution for them. Thus far we have encouraged electronic sharing and sending of work via Dropbox/email/Webdav, but we are now being pushed to supply some form of printing ability from these devices as apparently it's needed.
So I've been looking about. I've not been doing any evaluating yet, but a few options spring out at me.
1) We have papercut for our printer/copier management and I know there's an app which works with this for printing, so how effective is that and how does it work? does anyone has experience of it?
2) I've some across Printopia which allows sharing of printers via an apple mac using the Air Print system Printopia - AirPrint to Any Printer - Print from iPad - Print from iPhone - Ecamm Network we have plenty of macs in the building that could act as hosts for this for each department, so has anyone used that and how well does it work?
3) I've found this iPad Printing and iPhone Printing with EFI Fiery direct mobile printing and our Ricoh MFP printers are supported - as we have one of these per department it would be suitable. Has anyone used it and is so, how well does that work?
Any other suggestions, has anyone successfully rolled out printing on a large scale like this and managed to retain at least some sort of control over it?
Cheers for your help!
