WolfPrint FollowMe printing makes it possible for NC State students, faculty and staff to submit a print job from any device (desktop, laptop, smartphone, etc) and then pick it up at one of the WolfPrint FollowMe printers on campus. Beginning with the fall semester of 2020, WolfPrint launched a new feature for it’s 136 student printers on campus – touchless printing. Each WolfPrint printer received a Quick Response (QR) code on its front panel to assist with this technology.
To use the new QR code, students will simply submit their job via WolfPrint. Then, visit the printer where they wish to collect the print job and scan the QR code using the camera functionality of their smartphone to release the print job – touch free. Alternately, students will continue to be able to release their print jobs by swiping their all campus card or entering their unity credentials manually at the printer to release print jobs.
WolfCopy collaborated with the Office of Information Technology (OIT), to deliver this useful tool to campus. OIT developed and executed the testing for this project and partnered with WolfCopy to implement the QR codes. This strategic partnership and specifically, the collaboration on this project, is one of the many ways that the Pack shows its strength and resilience during these unprecedented times.
