Guest Printing is About to Change for the Better

Vertical Systems, Inc. is set to introduce a revolutionary new way for hotel guests
to print directly from their computer

Sunnyvale, Calif. — June 16, 2011 — For decades print companies and HSIA suppliers have attempted to provide the hotel industry with the perfect guest printing solution. Some have come close, others have fallen short, but none has gotten it right until now.
"Up until now hotel guests have been limited to printing solutions that required sending files over the web or carrying a USB stick and finding an available printer," said Saeed Kazmi, VSi President & CEO. "VSi has developed a simple to use but sophisticated printing solution that makes printing as simple as printing from a computer at home or office by clicking the standard printer icon button."
mPrint™ eliminates the need to go through multiple steps for web printing set-up, or searching through a long list of locally available on-line printers. With mPrint™ the guest data remains local and there is no need for guest files to go over the web, where there is a higher risk for a security breach.
A key difference between other products available in the market and mPrint is that others only allow printing of the entire document, whereas mPrint™ enable guests to print any number of pages from a document while the application is still open and in use. Imagine the cost savings realized if a guest needs to print 4 pages of a 100 page document. This is great for the environment as it avoids unnecessary printing. Since most hotels supply paper and toner for guest usage, being able to print only what is needed will save on all consumables.
With mPrint™ the ability to print specialized documents is not limited to what the current provider can accept. If a specialized document is normally printed from the guest computer, mPrint™ will print it.
mPrint™ is a proprietary (patent pending) technology develop by VSi, that will be of great interest to hotel chains, as well as providers of wifi and internet services to hotels and other public facilities. We look forward to the opportunity to find partners who are interested in making mPrint part of their solutions.” added Saeed.
VSi will be conducting limited demonstrations of mPrint™ at this year’s HITEC in Austin. Interested parties should contact VSi at (408) 752-8100 ext. 106 to arrange for an appointment.
