Xerox hosted its annual Technology Show last Tuesday at the Xerox office in Garapan where they took guests on a digital journey of all its latest products. This year’s theme “Building a digital workplace” aims to show Xerox products are cost-efficient, secure, accessible, promote creativity, as well as help conserve the environment.
All new features are compatible with Xerox Versalink and Altalink printers.
Tiffany Rabacal-Harper, an Office Solutions specialist from Xerox Hawaii, talked about how Xerox printers can fit into our daily lives and turning it as a workplace assistant by connecting through various apps available from the Xerox app gallery through ConnectKey Technology.
She said by using this feature, users wherever they are can have access to print, scan, and copy whatever documents they need and this equates to productivity.
“We use apps from our smart phones everyday… I connect to the cloud with it, I store things, I book all my travel and so Xerox made use of this medium of technology to connect people to the printers just by using apps,”
“You are cloud connected… whether printing, copying just wait for 20 to 30 seconds for the cloud to process and send to receiver… This feature adds up to the unlimited opportunities to streamline processes and improve productivity… you can access this in Android and Apple devices… ” she added.
The convenience of this feature does not compromise document and data security. “The machines have built-in protections that meet and meet industry and government standards. It protects printed materials by not releasing documents until the rightful user is at the device and stored information is protected using the highest levels of encryption,” she said.
“In addition to that, three new apps for Xerox ConnectKey are available: Xerox Auto Redaction, which automatically redacts personal identifiable information, custom words or phrases and renders sensitive data unreadable. Second is the Xerox Proofreader service, which gives users to focus more inn content and not corrections, and third, the Xerox audio documents which converts hard copy documents into MP3 files,” she added.
Docushare specialist Dan Colley from Xerox California discussed another workplace solution called Xerox DocuShare Flex Content Management Platform. It helps businesses eliminate hard document prints and copies into a single consolidated, secure, and central scanning repository.
“We use Microsoft Azure across three centers in the U.S… we back it up every 15 minutes… so in the event of a natural disaster, your data is safe with us… This feature also assign tasks and manage employees workloads, create team folders that sends notifications and email collaboration, and access to the cloud empowers workers to manage business content,” he said.
Another workplace assistant is called the Paper Cut MF that allows customers to track and control printing and copying based on uses, department, class, or client. It suggests environmentally printing options like double-sided grayscale printing or users can add rules to restrict function to reduce waste.
Harper also introduced the new CMYK Plus kit enhancement which can now be used in C-60 and C-70 printers. “We are able to bring this technology down and more affordable to print shops and users. With new toners in shimmering metallics like gold, white, silver, and clear which helps printing, marketing, and media businesses. It creates eye-catching prints for greeting cards, flyers, invitations, posters, signage, gift vouchers, and more,” she said.
Michelle Atalig of Docomo Pacific Inc. said that the Technology Show is a win-win for both Xerox and its customers like her company. “It was very informative to discover new functions that we can apply to be more effective and efficient. At Docomo, we try to leverage technology that’s why it’s great to hear from Xerox what they are trying to do to make processes easier in the workplace.”
Xerox Guam & Saipan general manager Pamela Quinata said not only does Xerox added more features but also made products that are affordable to cater small or big businesses.
“We always try to keep on top what the community needs. We meet their requirements to help the business community, government, and schools to have access to the best technology that they can ever have at a good price,” she said.
