Integration of Google CloudPrint and ShipStation

Cloud printing is a service that allows users to print documents and pictures from their desktop or mobile device. There are many Cloud printing services available, but Google CloudPrint seems to be the most popular service among consumers.

According to Google, "Google CloudPrint is an online printing system that lets you print from any device to any printer, anywhere in the world." You can add printers of all makes and models, using the Google Cloud Print service on your Android phone or tablet, from your computer at home or work, or even from your iPhone or iPad. Google CloudPrint also offers tops that help you manage your printers and print jobs.

"Google Cloud Print works with any printer connected to the Internet or within your company network. Cloud Print software is provided as part of Google Chrome."

For most people, printing has become an integral part of their daily lives. As a matter of fact, a recent study revealed that, "Nearly half of U.S. consumers (47%. own a printer, and 66% of those owners use it at least once per month." This means that there is a high demand for printers and these printers need to be used consistently. Though the main purpose of printing is to produce hard copies of documents, it is becoming increasingly difficult for consumers to find the time and opportunity to do so. On average, Americans spend eleven hours a week in front of various screens, including televisions, computers, laptops, and smartphones. This trend is likely to continue if we consider that many people spend more than fourteen hours per week using their mobile devices. This translates into more than one hour spent on each screen each day. For this reason, consumers are looking for ways to save time by printing from mobile devices. Services such as Google Cloud Print make it possible to print from mobile devices without having to install a printer driver on the mobile device.

Given the popularity of the Google Cloud Print service among consumers, it became necessary to integrate this service with ShipStation, which is another popular service among small businesses. ShipStation is a web-based shipping management software that allows small business owners to manage their shipments from their desktop or mobile device. ShipStation provides users with real-time shipment tracking capabilities and also offers integrated tops for creating shipping labels automatically using their existing LaserJet or inkjet printer.

Google offers several guides for different types of printers; these guides explain how users can connect their printers to their devices and how they can start using Google Cloud Print service on their devices. However, because this process can be complicated for some users, especially for beginner users, ShipStation decided to integrate Google Cloud Print with its web-based shipping management software.
