Creating a Simpler, Secure Workflow: Xerox Technology Supports Cloud Services, Custom Apps, BYOD and More

Creating a Simpler, Secure Workflow: Xerox Technology Supports Cloud Services, 
Custom Apps, BYOD and More 
TORONTO, Feb. 13, 2013 /CNW/ - Xerox (NYSE: XRX) today introduced 
ConnectKey™, a software system embedded in Xerox multifunction printers 
(MFPs) and a set of solutions that respond to an increasingly mobile workforce 
and the need for more advanced IT security across connected devices. 
Sixteen ConnectKey MFPs - including the new WorkCentre(®) 5800 and 7800 
Series - will use the industry's first embedded security protection from 
McAfee, giving IT managers more control and peace of mind in "bring your own 
device" (BYOD) workplaces. ConnectKey MFPs also have an extra layer of 
security with Cisco's TrustSec, which protects data paths to and from the 
devices. 
With ConnectKey's open Application Programming Interface (API), sales channel 
partners, systems integrators and resellers can develop and embed apps on the 
MFP with no additional software requirements. 
"ConnectKey was designed for one purpose: to simplify how work gets done in a 
secure, 'always on' world," said Douraid Zaghouani, president, Channel Partner 
Operations, Xerox. "Through the MFP as a secure hub, ConnectKey's features 
include the ability to scan and upload documents to cloud repositories, send 
business-critical documents directly into workflow processes and print 
securely and easily from any mobile device. It's Xerox innovation that takes 
hassles out of workdays and adds more productivity into workplaces." 
Concord Hospitality Enterprises Company, a hotel management and development 
company based in Raleigh, N.C., recognizes the benefits of ConnectKey - such 
as scanning to SharePoint and mobile printing - in its headquarters and plans 
to expand these services to its 90 hotels in North America. 
"From an innovation standpoint, ConnectKey is great. My only regret is that we 
didn't have it sooner," said Brian Cornell, chief information officer, 
Information Technology, Concord Hospitality. 
Work simplified with MFP apps, cloud access, mobile printing 
ConnectKey's solutions give IT professionals, channel partners and large, 
medium and small workplaces fast and easy ways to get work done, including: 


    --  Standard apps or build-your-own: Xerox's App Studio will let
        users and channel partners customize apps that make daily work
        processes faster. For example, a custom app for a health
        insurance company could scan reimbursement claims directly into
        the payment system from the MFP screen.
    --  Cloud access: With a single touch - and no middleware -
        ConnectKey Share to Cloud moves documents to repositories, such
        as
        SharePoint Online,
        Google Drive,
        DropBox,
        Evernote,
        PaperPort Anywhere
        and Salesforce.com. It
        also allows automatic conversion to searchable PDF, Word or
        Excel, making documents easier to manage for the future.
    --  Connect to SharePoint: Office workers can browse, convert and
        store documents in SharePoint and network folders, or store
        directly to their SharePoint My Site or home folder. With a
        focus on ease of installation and maintenance, it's designed
        for small and midsized businesses.
    --  Easy IT integration: ConnectKey MFPs can be managed as a
        central part of the network, much like servers, for
        straightforward set-up and service. Troubleshooting and
        training can be addressed remotely by IT administrators, or
        self-help can be initiated with online support and videos on
        the front panel.
    --  Print from anywhere: Workers can print from any email-enabled
        mobile device without special software with
        Xerox Mobile Print,
        or use apps with additional convenience features developed for
        iOS, Android, Windows and Blackberry. Users have the added
        flexibility of choosing to implement mobile print as either a
        cloud-based or on-site solution.
