NORWALK, Conn. —
Xerox (NYSE: XRX), the company built on innovating the way the world works, is leading another workplace revolution – today launching 29 ConnectKey®-enabled printers and multifunction devices with simple and secure on-the-go capabilities, cloud connectivity, and access to productivity boosting features and apps.
Mobile printing has become standard in most offices, so what’s the next big thing?
Xerox has recently unveiled an on-the-go document scanner, supplying remote and mobile workers with the proper technology to get their work done.
Up until this point mobile workers were out of luck when it came to scanning on the go. Without the ability to upload and send critical documents, projects could be held up or deals put on hold until they could get back to the office to scan documents.
The mobile worker is an essential part of every small business. Outside the four walls of the office, employees must be able to access, store and send business-critical information to keep business moving. If they can’t, they are forced to wait until they get back to the office to scan in documents and route them to the correct employees and departments. This outdated process opens companies up to a variety of threats and inefficiencies, as many documents are lost, forgotten about, or damaged, which can bring business processes to a halt and inhibit good customer service.
With the release of every new generation of intelligent multi-function printers, the devices become less like copiers and more like the computers they actually are. Take apps, for instance. We use them all the time on phones and tablets. Now innovation brings more apps into the world of MFP devices, documents and workflow. Lots more. “Currently, the MFP-embedded app market is diversifying by taking on more specialized tasks” notes BPO Media senior analyst, Patricia Ames in this article.
Have you ever just wanted to start over? Well with your printer you just might be able to start over. Let’s say your Xerox printer is moving to a new location or a new group and you want to reset the machine. We have a way for you to do that. You can reset the machine to the factory defaults and start all over. The process of setting the machine back to the factory defaults makes the machine like it was when you first took it out of the box, okay so it is now used but most settings will be back to the factory defaults.
Last week we looked at the new Xerox® VersaLink® C400 and B400 Printers. This week let’s look at the Xerox® VersaLink® C405 and B405 Multifunction Printers. So what is the difference? Well the Xerox VersaLink C405 and B405 are multifunction printers that include not only printing but copying, faxing, scanning and emailing. The multifunction printers include all the features we discussed in last week’s article and more.
The multifunction printers bring you the features you have come to expect.
Xerox recently launched the Healthcare MFP, which is designed to help small to medium sized practices to digitize and share patient information safely and securely using the office’s multifunction printer.
The overall goal of the new product is to speed up the process of uploading and sharing patient information with other practices that are connected by Kno2, a clinical document exchange cloud service.
There are few things more satisfying than achieving big results from simple changes. Scanning is revolutionizing the way businesses operate, helping small and medium businesses (SMBs) boost productivity and efficiency while cutting costs, usually with just a few simple steps.
Those steps all start at your multifunction printer. Number one? Scan to email. One of the most popular and easy to use features, scan to email is also one of the most underutilized, often because users aren’t familiar with the process – or they’re unwilling to take the time to learn.
We often hear about Managed Print Services as an example of the Internet of Things. We discuss how analytics drive the MPS roadmap, and how document security reduces breaches in digital workflows. These sophisticated topics we now associate with MPS, but let’s not forget what started it all — the devices themselves.
In your job, you may never have to pay much attention to the printers, scanners and MFPs that share the office space. And that’s as it should be, but don’t underestimate those devices. They’ve come a long way, and now they contribute to many corporate initiatives:
