What is WEPA™?
Pronounced wee-pah, WEPA™ is an acronym for "Wireless Everywhere Print Anywhere." WEPA™ is a breakthrough in Wireless Printing Technology. WEPA™ uses "cloud computing" to upload documents and send them via the web to WEPA™ "touch-screen" kiosks where students can then print their documents.
Why was WEPA™ developed?
WEPA™ is a printing service that was developed to meet the needs of schools and students by providing a user-friendly service and convenience that keeps students from being confined to a lab or library – the typical places that printers are found. WEPA™ kiosks can be placed anywhere (labs, libraries, dorms, cafeterias, etc.) to print documents and serve the printing needs of students.
How does it work?
Once registered, a student can upload a document from anywhere that internet service is provided. Then, go to the nearest WEPA™ kiosk and simply login, select method of payment, and print their document. Note: There must be an internet connection to upload documents to WEPA™.
What documents can I print?
