FedEx Office Answers Demand for Mobile Printing with New App
DALLAS, APRIL 23, 2014– Since the launch of its first mobile printing solution in 2010, FedEx Office has seen demand for mobile and cloud-centered printing options rise among its customers. Today, with the release of the newest FedEx Office mobile printing app, the convenience of these options is expanding to the millions of iOS and Android users in the U.S. The release also builds on the company’s existing suite of award-winning digital printing technology, including FedEx Office Print & Go, FedEx Office Print Online and more.

Small business owners and traveling professionals now have instant access to a full suite of mobile print services through the FedEx Office easy-to-use mobile apps for iOS and Android.
