Work Smarter - Xerox ConnectKey

From the Printware Blog on Thursday 4th May 2017

With an upcoming launch involving a new family of products, Xerox has a bold statement of intent. Both the VersaLink and AltaLink series come with an integrated, intuitive new smart workplace assistant called ConnectKey. But what is it exactly, and what does it do? And how is that different to any other printer with a touchscreen interface?

ConnectKey combines 5 key functionalities:

An Intuitive Tablet-like Interface

Now that pretty much everyone uses a touch-screen device, intuitively tapping, swiping, pinching and scrolling through tasks has become second nature. The ConnectKey interface capitalises on this, enabling gesture control so tasks can be completed quicker and more efficiently. Time saved at the printer can then be utilised in more productive ways.

Mobile- and Cloud-ready

With more and more workers using mobile devices, ConnectKey lets users connect – even on the go – to print, scan and share documents directly. If a cloud platform is used, most apps come pre-loaded or are available to download using the appGallery. So whatever cloud service is preferred, ConnectKey can seamlessly integrate with it.

Printer and Data Security

Gain peace of mind from comprehensive and all-encompassing protection at all points of potential vulnerability. A holistic four-point approach to security includes intrusion protection, device detection, leading-edge document & data encryption and external partnerships to mitigate any weaknesses in the entire print process.

Customised Experience

Business and technology never stand still. But can a printer move with the times? With ConnectKey software, the answer is yes. Industry-leading flexible productivity functions and apps are available in your own custom app gallery. Apps can even be tailor-made by third-party developers to fit the exact requirements of your business, so you no longer need to settle for ‘one-size-fits-all’. And if that is not enough, each user can customise their interface to what they need by adding, deleting and re-ordering their apps to best suit their priorities.

Managed Print Services

Manage information, documents and resources more effectively with managed print services (MPS). ConnectKey can become the central hub of your document environment, a thoroughfare where all information flows. You can automate business processes, optimise and manage devices and assist your help desk with built-in tools. No two businesses are the same and yet ConnectKey will support a document management environment that answers the exact needs of any business.

Taken together, it is easy to see that Xerox ConnectKey is a smart workplace assistant. One that doesn’t just copy, scan, fax, or print, but can also become a secure centralised document management hub that you will quickly wonder how you lived without it!

Say good-bye to scattered information, disjointed processes, isolated peripherals, and unstructured support. And say hello to ConnectKey.
