Lexmark International has launched an enterprise-class Print Release solution that can be hosted in the cloud via a Software as a Service (SaaS) model. Enterprises will have the option of either a traditional, on-premise deployment, or as a hosted service on a subscription basis.

The hosted implementation of Lexmark Print Release includes broad support for enterprise-class mobile printing. With the Lexmark Mobile Printing App, which is designed for Apple iOS and Android smartphones and tablets, employees can submit print jobs directly to the print queue and release them at any hosted Print Release enabled output device. The Lexmark Print Release solution can also be configured so employees can print from any email-enabled mobile device, including a BlackBerry.

Lexmark’s SaaS offerings will be available through Lexmark professional services engagements.
