uniFLOW Service for AirPrint® certified by Apple

NT-ware today announces the certification by Apple of the uniFLOW Service for AirPrint that provides secure print services for iPad®, iPhone® and Mac® users.


Over the years, uniFLOW has evolved to become the market-leading print and scan management product, offering a wide variety of features including secure printing, mobile printing, secure workflow-based scanning, job routing, usage accounting and print room management. uniFLOW pioneered enterprise-level printing from mobile devices with email and app-based job submission features.


Secure Print Services for iPad® and iPhone®

The uniFLOW Service for AirPrint provides a simplified, app-free print job submission, user identification and job accounting experience for iPad and iPhone users connected to the company network. Users can now print from any iPhone or iPad application using the built-in print menu.

On first use, users enter their normal credentials then all subsequent print jobs will be automatically routed to their uniFLOW Secure Print queue. As with all other output uniFLOW records AirPrint usage so you still have a clear view and can account for all costs across your printing fleet.


Driverless Printing from Mac OS X® using AirPrint

Mac OS X users benefit from the easy, zero-configuration setup process by simply adding the uniFLOW Secure AirPrint queue displayed on printers and scanners. The built-in AirPrint driver is used to deliver instant print functionality including duplex, staple, hole-punch and paper sizes. This means that there is no requirement to install any drivers or client applications for direct printing, secure printing and accounting.


Developed according to Apple’s specifications

NT-ware are part of the official Apple AirPrint licensing program and the uniFLOW Service for AirPrint has been developed according to Apple’s official specifications. This ensures that all the printing functionalities available from within iOS or Mac OS X are automatically supported within uniFLOW.


Tested and certified by Apple

Apple testing procedures have resulted in a uniFLOW AirPrint service that will function in the same way as any AirPrint certified printer or print server on the market. The uniFLOW AirPrint service has been extensively tested by Apple to guarantee its compliance with both the Internet Printing Protocol (IPP) specification and MDNS/Bonjour service.

A full list of all certified AirPrint servers and printers can be found on the Apple website (which is only updated once per month so the uniFLOW certification may not appear immediately).


Always iOS compliant

The  official Apple AirPrint certification ensures that, whenever the next version of Apple’s operating system - either iOS or Mac OS® - is released, it can be tested and any necessary changes implemented in uniFLOW before an updated version of Apple’s operating system is released to the market.
