We were delighted to see Xerox in the news again last month, receiving recognition from the analyst research group, Quocirca, retaining its leadership in the fourth consecutive market report for channel Managed Print Services (MPS). The group’s latest worldwide market landscape report has highlighted Xerox as having one of the most advanced and mature channel partner ecosystems in the industry.

This is of particular interest to SMBs looking to effect digital transformation and for whom Xerox’s unique solutions, such as the MPS Essentials Suite and Xerox Partner Print Services (XPPS), can give the upper hand, positioning them perfectly for growth over the next five years.

In addition to these solutions, technology such as the Xerox ConnectKey portfolio can help businesses to get ahead by creating smart, connected workplace assistants in place of traditional devices, ConnectKey’s personalized automated workflows, one-touch access to the cloud, mobile readiness, tailored apps, and multi-layered security features help improve productivity, efficiency, and information security.

It’s not just about creating the technology; however, in order for it to be adopted, it has to be understood, accepted and used. The AltaLink® and VersaLink® family of products were designed with an easy-to-use interface reminiscent of a smartphone or tablet to help support that process.

The other important quality of any technology or device nowadays is also mobility – we’re not in any one place for long, and our technology has to embrace that. ConnectKey has functionalities that make it easy to download, share, print, scan, distribute, and even translate documents from anywhere simply by tapping an app. The optional Wi-Fi feature pairs with cloud services to connect the entire team to the device via their mobile devices, putting AirPrint, Mopria, Google Cloud Print, and the Xerox Android Print Service Plug-in right at their fingertips. Google Drive and OneDrive are also pre-installed on VersaLink printers and downloadable from the AppGallery on AltaLink devices.

If you would like to know more about how the Xerox range of devices can help support digitisation, increase productivity and support the development of SMBs, please do contact us here at Xeratek, and our experienced team would be more than happy to help.
