PriApps Touch-Free is a completely contactless Single Sign-On (SSO), Print, Copy, Scan and Fax app for MFPs that runs on smartphones and tablets.  It allows users to perform print, copy, scan and fax workflows without the need to touch the control panel of the printer or MFP.

PriApps Touch-Free is licensed by connected print devices.  There is no limit to the number of users that can access the functionality.  For example, an organization with 300 users, 10 printers and 5 MFPs that only wants to use PriApps Touch-Free with the MFPs would only need to purchase a 5 MFP license.

PriApps Touch-Free works by communicating with MFPs via the PriApps Application server.  SSO, Print, Copy, Scan & Fax commands are translated by the PriApps Application server for the different makes and models of printers and MFPs that user wants to use.  This has the added advantage that mobile devices do not need to be connected directly to every printer or MFP on the network.

The PriApps Touch-Free app is available free-of-charge on the App Store & Google Play.  It works with PriApps application software that can be purchased from a PriApps Authorized Reseller.  Please contact PriApps directly to find out your nearest Reseller.

Support is provided by PriApps Authorized Resellers or directly via PriApps.  Please refer to the support section on the PriApps website for more information or email support@priapps.com
