HP expands ePrint & Share capabilities … a bit

HP has expanded the printing options available to users of its ePrint & Share service. I wrote about its launch 18 months ago, and its June 2011 strategy update, and, in between, I also wrote about Autodesk’s AutoCAD WS tablet/smartphone app.

So it was interesting to see that the latest HP announcement includes an extension of the firm’s partnership with Autodesk to enable printing to HP devices – via ePrint & Share – to web-connected HP large-format Designjet ePrinters and eMFPs. Once registered, AutoCAD WS users can now use a new Plot to Print function to print their designs and automatically archive a copy on any web-connected HP printer, with full control over plot styles, paper sizes, layouts, etc.

Additionally, the HP ePrint & Share mobile application has been updated to enable users to send PDF e-mail attachments to print (not just documents in one’s ePrint & Share library).

Still no sign, however, that HP will extend this functionality to allow integration with widely used AEC Software-as-a-Service solutions. Their users are still excluded from the HP view of collaboration, where people have to use HP hardware and related HP print services. As I said last June: not really all that collaborative….
