Sydney, Australia - 25 May 2015 – Brother International Australia, a leader in home and business IT peripherals that focuses on the ‘Customer-First’ approach, has partnered with Mobeera to offer a unique portable print solution changing the way Australians conduct business.

 
Brother and Mobeera have collaboratively solved a key issue many mobile workers face by delivering the capability to print documents from their iPad while in the field. This has been achieved by implementing the use of Mobeera’s PDF MAX 4 App which natively supports the connection enabling direct printing from an iPad to Brother’s PocketJet PJ-673.
 
The compact PJ-673 portable thermal printer is designed specifically for the mobile worker in mind, a durable in-the-field portable printing solution for the likes of sales/service, logistics, public safety and emergency services officials. Previously, printing directly from an iPad while out in-the-field has been a difficult, somewhat complex process making it challenging for any company to provide a fully enhanced and productive mobile set up to Australian businesses.
 
PDF Max 4 is a desktop-class PDF app for reading, annotating or signing PDF documents on iPhone/iPad. Designed to be intuitive, gorgeous and touch-optimised for both iPhone and iPad, PDF Max 4 allows the marking up of documents with highlights and handwriting, insertion of texts and stamps, filling out, signing, watermarking, copying/pasting PDF pages and much more.

“The partnership of the PJ-673 and PDF MAX 4 enables a whole new era of mobile productivity for Australian businesses,” said Luke Howard, Commercial Market Development Channel Manager, Brother International Australia. “By combining the standalone features of the PJ-673 and the connectivity capabilities provided by the PDF MAX 4 app, we’re enabling mobile workers the flexibility they need to achieve higher productivity levels and improved customer satisfaction rates than ever before.”
 
Using this solution, Australian businesses can now achieve:
 
  • Increased efficiency, freedom and mobility
  • Satisfying customer requirements immediately during visits
  • Reduction in administration costs - minimising the need for follow up and communication back to office
  • Increased customer confidence by being able to leave a hard copy after completing a transaction
  • Greater accuracy through reduced handwriting errors
  • The prospect of busy sales people closing deals on site while their customer's interest is still high
