Beacon supports secure, remote, and work-from-home workflows enabling employees to submit jobs from any network, and walk up and release prints from any Pharos-enabled printer—without the hassle of mapping to specific printers or managing vendor-specific print drivers. Users simply authenticate at any device and the documents are released.
