Printer Setup for Android

Printer Setup for iPhone and iPad

The faster you get new equipment up and running, the more quickly you can achieve your return on investment. Use your Android device, iPhone or iPad to configure your Link-OS printers to optimise performance – without the need for specialised knowledge.

An Easy Way to Configure Your Printers

Download the app on Google Play or the Apple App Store. Once installed, use the discover feature to find printers you wish to configure. Connect via Bluetooth or Wi-Fi and follow one of the simple setup wizards that walks you through how to set specific printing parameters – such as calibration, media type, printer language and security – to optimise performance.

Bluetooth Printers Are Now Configurable – Even in the Field

Traditionally, Bluetooth printers are not easily managed – particularly when the printers are used in the field by a mobile workforce. Zebra’s Printer Setup utility makes Bluetooth printers manageable via the Cloud by allowing you to retrieve files from your Cloud storage provider and then transfer these files to your printers for faster configuration and easier software updates. This simplifies the management of your Bluetooth printers, dramatically improving your return on investment and increasing the productivity of your mobile workforce.
