That's it
Do you still think that to work with a certain USB device you have to have it physically attached to your computer? In this case you haven't heard of USB Network Gate yet! USB Network Gate is available for different platforms, which includes USB Network Gate for Linux. The latest version 4.0 allows working with any USB device even in those "seems impossible" situations when a USB device is oceans away from you.

With USB Network Gate for Linux one can share any USB device on a computer (server) and then access this device from a remote location (client machine) and use it as easily as if this device was plugged into client computer directly. The technology works over Internet/LAN/WAN types of networks.

This means that no matter how many office workers need to use the same device and how far they are from each other and the device itself, you won't need to invest in more devices - everyone can access and use the device and all of its properties.
In case you were wondering what server and client parts are, they are all combined in one application, you just choose which one to set up on every computer. Pretty convenient and no special knowledge is needed.

Here are a couple of examples when USB Network Gate for Linux can be used:

Access multi-function device from any part of your office space
Sharing a multi-function device is probably the most common case where many people may want to access it from different machines. And such device is too big to carry around the building. The solution USB Network Gate for Linux offers is simple and really convenient for everyone in the office. You just need to install the app on a computer with MFD plugged in (server) and on computers of all office workers (clients) who are going to need the device now and then. Share the multi-function device from the server computer with USB Network Gate for Linux.
For our lab remote applications always were/are/will handy to manage our connection, I know there are many ways to manage your remote devices but some of them are complex and rest do not work well with all operating systems, once my professor said "Don't reinvent the wheel if it is already invented, just use what is available that fits your requirements and save time", well this debate could go long and I don't want to go into this discussion.
