Another Three OEMs Join the Mopria Alliance

Epson, Ricoh and Konica Minolta announced they have joined the Mopria™ Alliance, a global non-profit membership organization focusing on delivering innovation in mobile print.

Regarding the organization, Ian Cameron for global communications at Epson noted, “The Mopria Alliance is dedicated to advancing mobile printing to allow busy people on-the-go to conveniently print wherever or whenever, regardless of brand or operating system.” In addition, Cameron said Epson is honored to work with like-minded organizations for meeting customer needs in the growing mobile market.

Ricoh stated it will be responsible for support building future industry standards for mobility services technology. Also, it will continue to “expand its roster of hardware, software and services aimed to help global customers adjust to and flourish in today’s new world of work”.

Konica Minolta said it will agree to the mission of the Alliance and will actively participate in the development of printing standards for the realization of an easy mobile printing environment.

As was revealed by Konica Minolta, new work styles have emerged in recent years with the growing use of cloud services and mobile devices in offices and business. Therefore, the company is working on strengthening compatibility between multifunctional peripherals and mobile devices, with the launch of PageScope Mobile, a printing application for mobile devices.

The Mopria Alliance was founded by Xerox, Canon, HP and Samsung in 2013. Xerox said that the Alliance “aims to bring together the mobile, software and print industries with the goal of aligning to standards that make printing universally compatible from any mobile device to any printer anywhere.”
