PrinterOn Sees Usage Double for
Notebook Printing by Hotel Guests
.
Amount of paper printed equals the height of a ten-story hotel 
DALLAS, TX, June 22, 2004 Ė PrinterOn Corporation has seen the number of guests using its in-room web-based printing service across hotels in North America double since January 1. If all of the pages printed by guests using the PrinterOn service in the past six months were stacked together, the number of pages printed would equal the height of a 10-story hotel. 

PrinterOnís Guest Printing service lets guests print remotely and securely from their hotel rooms to a printer located centrally within the hotel, like the business center or the front desk.

The PrinterOn Guest Printing Service is now active in over 60,000 rooms in North America. The service has already been installed at all Hilton Garden Inn, Larkspur, AmeriTel and Doubletree hotels. Choice Hotels International and Hilton Hotels and Resorts have now endorsed PrinterOn as a preferred printing vendor. Other individual brand properties that have installed the PrinterOn service include Hyatt, Sheraton, Radisson, Courtyard by Marriott, Renaissance and Holiday Inn. 

John Kaarid, PrinterOn's Director of Business Development, said, "We attribute the continued growth in usage by hotel guests to the rise in the number of hotels adding high-speed Internet service and the ease of use of our service. Business travelers are finding our guest printing service easy and convenient to use for printing out of the office. For the hotel properties, PrinterOn is offering a brandable, feature-rich amenity at a comfortable price point for each property. Through customer loyalty, the service can pay for itself with just a couple of repeat guests."

In response to feedback from customers and partners, PrinterOn has continued to add new features and functionality to its Guest Printing Service including:

For the guest:

  • A printer locating function that automatically displays the nearest PrinterOn-enabled printers to guests.  Printers can also be searched for by location. 
  • Customer survey incorporated into the online service to provide instant feedback.
  • Spanish and French language user interface.
  • Overall continued performance and printing speed enhancements.
For the Hotelier:
  • Printer reports streamlined to be generated from single management page to take the printer offline, renew the service, edit the service, change branding, and change messaging all from the same management page.
  • APIs have been built in for automatic billing integration.
  • Auto wizard set-up for creating the service on site Ė all done over the web, no onsite assistance or configuration required.
PrinterOn will be demonstrating the latest features of its guest printing service at the HITEC Show, Dallas Convention Center, June 22- 24, Booth #1748.
