There's an app for that

We have reached a point where apps are an everyday part of our life. They have become a common feature on smartphones and tablets, making everyday tasks simpler and quicker, and enable people to do so much more at the touch of a button. But did you know that this technology has now been applied to modern printers / multifunction devices? App technology now exists that seamlessly and securely integrates with multifunction printer (MFP) interfaces, to help your business be more productive. As with most smartphone apps, the goal of these apps is to enable people to get things done quickly and simply.


The possibilities for app technology in this context are endless. At present, apps exist that can send your scanned documents directly to your Dropbox or OneDrive, as well as translation apps that can scan a document in one language, translate the document into another language and then print or email a copy. A variety of apps have been developed to date that bring efficiency and productivity into the office with a touch of the screen.


For example, Xerox® ConnectKey®-enabled MFPs come with a selection of apps to help users to improve their day-to-day printing and processes. The @Print by Xerox app is a free mobile cloud printing solution, which allows users to print from any mobile or network connected device to an MFP using a single email address – without IT support. Alternatively, a QR code app also exists which allows users to connect to an MFP with a simple scan of a QR code from their phone or tablet to print and scan documents.


Going beyond a simple mobile printing functionality, there is also an app which allows users to create automated workflows on their mobile devices to remotely control a Xerox MFP and transmit documents to fax, email, or cloud-hosted services – such as Dropbox or Google Drive. Camera capture capability also helps to square and straighten photos of documents taken with a mobile device.


Our own in-house software development team have created the Xeretec Support App Suite, which delivers immediate on-device support for your business. The nine apps help to simplify and speed up fault resolution while maximising user convenience and productivity for users of Xerox A3 i-Series devices. You can find out more about the Xeretec Support App Suite by clicking here.


But this is just the beginning, with apps opening up the opportunity to streamline many untamed business processes. That’s where Xeretec’s in-house development team comes in. Unlike many MPS providers, we have the capability to create custom apps in house. So if you have a need that you feel might be satisfied by an app, or if we spot an opportunity to improve your print solutions, we can put our team to work to develop an app specifically for your needs.


Examples of just a few apps that are currently available for Xerox® ConnectKey® enabled devices:

  • Xerox Easy Translator App – rapid machine translation on scanned documents, to/from over 44 different languages.
  • CapturePoint Transformer App – enables multifunction printers to quickly and securely transform paper documents into editable digital documents in the cloud.
  • Customised scanning apps – Workflows can be customised for individuals or groups within the organisation, to enable fast, accurate scanning and sending documents right to where that person needs them to be – for example, Scan to OneDrive. No more scanning to email and manually saving attachments.
  • Xeretec support app suite
