XEROX MOBILE PRINT SOLUTION CAN HELP WHEN:

  • Your workforce is traveling or dispersed across office, home and public workspaces.
  • Employees need to print directly from their mobile devices without a lot of steps or effort.
  • Mobile workers need to maintain document quality or security.
  • You want to improve productivity of your mobile workforce with minimum impact on IT resources.
  • You want to embrace the “always-on” workplace instead of being frustrated by it.

With the Mobile Print Solution, employees stay productive wherever they are, and documents stay secure.

The mobile print app locates printers within a public print network using GPS and maps, and securely sends the print job to that location.

Mobile print enhancements are available on iOS, Android and other mobile devices. It integrates with Secure Card Readers and Follow You printing for unified user experiences.

Additional enhancements include web page printing, media selection, global deployment and many document types.

Flexible delivery models minimize IT impact. Xerox can deploy and manage either on premises or via the cloud.

XEROX PERSONALIZED APPLICATION BUILDER

The new Xerox Personalized Application Builder allows Verity Group to create personalized solutions to meet your unique business needs.  We can now create and deploy custom MFP–resident capture / routing solutions that enhance the usability and value proposition of ConnectKey-enabled MFPs. We are therefore able to create an ecosystem of interconnected software and hardware to help you increase productivity and efficiency in the workplace by providing one-touch access to common workflows at the top level of the user interface.

The following are just a few of the many personalized applications we can create:

  • Personalized user productivity applications such as one touch scanning
  • Enterprise productivity applications such as custom workflows for horizontal processes in HR, financial, marketing etc.
  • Managed Print Services productivity applications to streamline processes such as consumables orders and service tickets.

Instead of solely focusing on the multifunction printer (MFP) device itself or the number of pages printed, there is a significant opportunity for us to help our clients optimize business processes by reducing the number of steps it takes to complete any given task.

One of the new apps is gabi (Global Artificial Business Intelligence) which is an innovative solution that lets you talk to your multifunction printer by voice recognition and with cyber security by design.  gabi is powered by the cognitive brain of IBM Watson and enables hands-free access to your multifunction printer features such as copy, scan, fax, and secure print with your voice. gabi is a truly hands-free solution and will only “wake-up” when it hears the key phrase, “gabi”. Otherwise, it does not listen to any conversation near-by. And gabi only interprets and responds to programmed commands.

WHY YOU NEED AN MPS ASSESSMENT

You might be surprised at how many ways Managed Print Services (MPS) can improve your business. While cost is often the main driver for exploring MPS, its value can touch many other areas of your enterprise. You won’t know how much until you have an MPS assessment. That’s the first step in learning where and how MPS can transform your document environment.

Have a look at this list and see how many challenges apply to your organization. You can gain valuable insights and guidance from an MPS assessment if you struggle with:

Cost-based Drivers

1. Escalating costs of existing print infrastructure

2. Pressure to reduce business costs in general

3. Increase spend predictability

4. Cost reduction mandates to reduce print spend specifically

5. Balancing operating expense versus capital spend

6. Identifying hidden costs of equipment, archiving and business processes

7. Pressure to improve revenue and margins

Governance Issues

8. Lack of understanding of existing print infrastructure

9. No ability to track and measure print environment

10. Managing large population of unconnected output devices

11. Managing Multi-vendor environment with multiple supplier contracts

12. High concentration of desktop devices

13. Current MPS contract ending in 12-18 months

14. Struggling to meet sustainability goals

Location-based Challenges

15. Integrating systems due to mergers, acquisitions or consolidation

16. Newly merged organizations seeking efficiency and savings

17. Distributed offices and multiple locations

18. Autonomous departments making their own buying decisions

19. Growing mobile workforce or widely distributed workers

Strategic, Process and Market Considerations

20. More efficiency in paper-intensive business processes

21. Customer needs that are creating new document or workflow requirements

22. Little understanding of how printed documents get used

23. Print infrastructure not aligned to business needs

24. Increasing focus on operational efficiency due to competitive pressures

25. Highly regulated, document-intensive industry such as financial services and healthcare

26. High degree of security and compliance requirements

Even if you experience just a few of these, MPS can bring significant change. The more problems MPS can solve for you, the better your MPS ROI. An MPS assessment offers data-driven guidance for fast, long-lasting improvements. You may need an assessment — and Managed Print Services – far more than you realize.

INNOVATION XEROX: THE MAGIC OF CREATING THE FUTURE

A philosophy running through Xerox is “the best way to predict the future is to invent it”. Our PARC Research Center was established with the mission to create the office of the future. Laser printers, Ethernet, graphical user interfaces, digital telephones, and safe downloading of music and movies were some of the resulting innovations that have changed the way we work. We also partner with our customers to co-invent and rely on interdisciplinary research to innovate solutions.

The business of open innovation is something PARC has been refining since we incorporated in 2002. Mastering the innovation process is about more than just developing new technology; it requires a deep understanding of human behavior and context, and the ability to invent new business models to take resulting products and services to market.

The largest digital print showcase in the world, conveniently located on the Xerox Webster campus, theGil Hatch Center has immediate access to a wide variety of engineering, marketing, business and executive resources. The center is over 100,000 square feet of innovation in action – giving you the chance to learn about our portfolio of Xerox digital technology, solutions and services all under one roof.

The best way to predict the future is to invent it.
