Toshiba’s cloud storage apps are a convenient and hassle-free approach which act as a bridge between the electronic documents in the cloud storage with the e-BRIDGE Next MFPs.

e-BRIDGE Plus for Google Cloud Print
In recent years it has become the norm to have the need to print from portable devices, such as tablets and smartphones. The need to install printer drivers in order to print is inconvenient. In addition, users outside the office and not on your network are not able to print. However, productivity and efficiency can only be maintained if we are able to achieve remote printing without the need to install printer drivers. Integration of the Toshiba e-BRIDGE Next MFP and Google Cloud Print has made difficult tasks possible. Now you can print from mobile devices and notebooks, even if you are not in the office or on the network. And all this without having to install a printer driver.
e-BRIDGE Print & Capture is an application that will allow you to utilise Toshiba e-STUDIO Multifunction Products (MFPs) to print and scan from Android iOS devices.
You can discover e-STUDIO MFPs on your network, pick up from a list of your most recently used MFPs or select your MFP by scanning the displayed QR code.
The app integrates with Toshiba e-BRIDGE Re-Rite OCR software that allows you to convert scanned images or photo documents into one of 22 editable file formats including Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint files amongst others.
