The electronics giant has started installing 51 mono laser printers at Universidad de Andres Bello to support the solution.

The university’s 45,000 students can use their smartphones to save documents on ADSA’s cloud server and print them anywhere on campus. They can use ‘Webpay’, a Chilean internet payment service that uses registered personal ID and credit cards, to pay for the service.

The printers are housed inside kiosks following the university’s request for robust deployment.

Samsung is also testing the solution at Universidad de las Americas and Universidad Santo Tomas, which together have around 70,000 students.

“This recent supply deal is a good example of Samsung supplying customized solutions based on client needs,” said a Samsung spokesman. “We plan to expand the business model to Chilean airports and groceries in the future.”
