Xerox ConnectKey Technology

The eco-system for workplace productivity

Today’s workplace has evolved beyond the ability of any single machine to fulfil the productivity needs of the modern, mobile, always-connected workforce. It’s time to stop thinking about printers as stand-alone, task-specific workhorses, and start demanding more up-to-date, useful – and useable – solutions.

Each ConnectKey Technology-enabled printer and multifunction printer in our lineup becomes the centre of a productivity ecosystem, bringing together all your devices, delivering an intuitive user experience, providing mobile and cloud connectivity, complete security and access to value-extending services right out of the box. You’ll do more than print, scan or copy. You’ll connect like never before.

Our Xerox printers do more than simply scan, fax and copy. They’re productivity powerhouses that help you get more done, faster. With Xerox ConnectKey Technology, your multifunction printer becomes the centre of a complete productivity ecosystem right out of the box. Print from just about anywhere with mobile print services. Scan directly to cloud services. Use simple apps for complicated, often-performed tasks. Transform the way you work. Join the workplace revolution with Xerox® printers and multifunction printers.


Documents are the currency of business

They are at the heart of your critical workflows and drive almost every aspect of your business. When a group of IT managers, business managers and mobile workers was asked, 70% said optimising document flow would help them respond to market needs more quickly and 62% said it would improve overall revenue*. Why? Because improved employee productivity has strategic revenue-generating consequences. More productive employees spend more time on innovation, customer service, winning new business, and making your business more competitive.

Imagine an office environment where all print devices have the same core features and functionality, dramatically increasing adoption and providing a simplified user training experience with fewer mistakes and faster proficiency. The common architecture behind ConnectKey Technology features industry-leading security, highlighted by our groundbreaking partnerships with Intel Security and Cisco to provide additional layers of security software and greater visibility to IT.

ConnectKey Technology-enabled solutions reduce waste and paper consumption and give you time back in your day to do your job more effectively. Plus, compatibility with energy management solutions like Cisco EnergyWise and a mix of innovative features enable reduced power consumption so you can achieve your sustainability promises. We’ve rounded out this amazing ecosystem by empowering today’s mobile workforce to conduct business in ways that work for them. With scalable, cloud-ready mobile solutions and embedded apps that help with mobile printing and QR code pairing, we empower you and your entire organisation to work better.

XEROX VERSALINK FAMILY

A dedicated experienced IT Manager will be allocated to your business and be your single point of contact. Your IT Manager will run your infrastructure day to day, directly communicate with your users and manage all of your workflows.

XEROX ALTALINK FAMILY

We will make regular visits to your site, the frequency depending on the size and scale of the contract, plus of course unplanned visits as and when the need arises. Although it is often faster and more convenient to provide a remote fix, we think that a regular on-site presence is essential to the relationship.


 

Keeping it consistent

With a ConnectKey Technology-enabled fleet – regardless of model – the user experience is always consistent. Common functions work similarly on every machine so users learn once and apply fleet-wide. New installation wizards streamline setup to get you started with little or no IT support. Print drivers look and feel the same, while the Xerox Global Print Driver can be used on all machines regardless of model.

Touch and go fast!

The multi-touch experience – the way millions of phone and tablet users interact with today’s most advanced devices – now finds its way to the printer or multifunction printer you’ll depend on to get work done quickly and easily. Swipe, tap and pinch your way through simplified workflows on a large, colourful, tablet-like screen. Download apps directly from the Xerox App Gallery, and customise your interface to keep the apps you use most front and centre. It’s a completely new – and yet entirely familiar – way to power through complex workflows and common tasks.

Customisation

With ConnectKey Technology’s flexible design, device interfaces are customisable to provide only the apps you use most – including specific one-touch workflows to or from the cloud or network locations.

And because ConnectKey technology is built on an open systems architecture (Xerox Extensible Interface Platform) even more customisation is possible for highly specialised workflows.
