FedEx Office Launches New Printing App for iPhone and Android

FedEx Office has announced a new mobile print app for both iPhone and Android devices. The FedEx Mobile Office App allows customers to manage printing jobs from anywhere.

Documents that are saved on your mobile device, in emails, or in several cloud storage apps can be sent to a FedEx Office store to be printed. You can pay for the print job from your phone and pick them up in person when you’re ready. FedEx Office can also ship these print jobs to you.

Cloud services like Box, Dropbox and Google Drive are integrated into the FedEx Office Mobile App already. From the app, you can make edits to your documents and send them to one of more than 1,800 FedEx Office retail locations for printing. FedEx says its app supports the following common file types:

  • .pdf
  • .doc
  • .ppt
  • .xls
  • .rtf
  • .txt

The app is good for any small business owner who’s always on the go. If you’re traveling between cities and a report needs to be edited and reprinted, the changes can be made and a print job ordered from a smartphone or tablet. When you reach your destination, you can pick up the changes you made after you left your office.

FedEx Office’s VP of Retail Marketing Randy Scarborough said in an announcement introducing the new mobile app:

“Every day, we work with business people to better understand their problems to ensure that we deliver the right solutions that are important to their success. We’re proud to introduce our new printing apps to help mobile customers overcome the common challenge of easily and quickly printing from their phone and tablet. FedEx Office connects people to their work like no one else can.”

The ability to ship print jobs ordered through the FedEx Office Mobile App allows small business owners the ability to have custom and specialty printing services at their disposal. FedEx offers an array of specialty printing products, according to the company’s website. They range from canvas prints and full-color posters to vinyl lettering. Options on the print job can be selected from the app. This includes choosing between color and black-and-white printouts, the type of paper, and how the job is finished – either stapled or spiral bound.

FedEx offers the ability to track your print order, too. This includes its status at the store and where it is if you’ve opted to have it shipped directly to you.
