Print securely within your office(s).
FollowMe Printing allows users to print to a shared print queue, roam and release their print job from any enabled output device.
This ensures printing is confidential to the user and reduces printed waste, from documents left uncollected at the printer.
If a printer is out of service, users can release their print jobs from the next available printer, without disrupting productivity.
FollowMe printing benefits:
- Reduce print wastage
- Print confidential documents securely
- Reduce overall costs
- Personal printing

Secure, confidential printing has never been more accessible. Coupled with our on-site and remote support, with end-user training, you and your team will be guided through the systems to ensure the implementation is a smooth and simple process.
FollowMe also provides flexibility to those users who need to share print jobs with delegated printing. Assistants can print securely on behalf of their managers without IT’s assistance and departments sustain productivity during periods of staff absence as staff can securely share print jobs.
By reducing waste and giving users a secure and flexible printing environment, FollowMe Printing will enable organisations to reduce costs significantly, protect their valuable data and support their workforce productivity.
What is Follow Me Printing?
FollowMe Printing is an innovative printing solution designed to enhance convenience, security, and cost-effectiveness in print and copy tasks. It allows users to send documents to a virtual queue which they can then release for printing from any enabled device at their convenience.
This mitigates the risk of confidential information being left unattended at the printer and reduces waste from unnecessary print jobs. It’s a flexible solution that caters to the dynamic and mobile modern work environment.
FollowMe Printing is quite straightforward and easy to use, catering to both individuals and businesses. Users simply need to send their print jobs to the FollowMe print queue, similar to sending a document to a traditional printer. After doing so, users can go to any printer enabled with FollowMe Printing technology. To release their print, they authenticate themselves at the printer usually by swiping an ID card or entering login credentials. This process ensures that the print job is released only to the authorised user, maintaining the confidentiality of documents and reducing wastage from uncollected printouts.
