Xerox ConnectKey: how to turn a printer into a smartphone

It's No secret that office MFP over the last few years has evolved greatly and no longer "just print, scan and copy", and a full-fledged assistant for business documents. Connecting the smartphone to the MFP can not be surprised, as the presence of the touch screen in this device, however, a highly specialized professional tasks (for example, to load a document from cloud storage) office MFP until recently was unavailable. The problem has been solved by Xerox — the technological market leader in home, office and industrial equipment, which has released 29 new printers and MFPs on an innovative software platform .

fun fact: the expression "to Xerox" we owe it to Xerox. It's late "copier" began to refer to any device for copying, and later MFPs, which, incidentally, is fundamentally wrong.

ConnectKey — not just a new interface for office equipment, it's a real ecosystem Xerox, which became the uniform for almost the entire product line of the company.

What is Xerox ConnectKey

The idea of a new platform — instant secure access to the data based on cloud technologies and comfortable single control system with a number of new features. Therefore, one of the components ConnectKey was the same familiar interface of the smartphone with which each interacts with the morning to evening. This approach managed to make possible the installation of many different services and applications for file management, business processes and beyond.

Previously, such devices were not configurable programming interface for advanced work with files and documents, despite the presence of built-in touch-screens. Xerox ConnectKey integrates all the device lines VersaLink and AtaLink and offers a user interface with which to solve the usual office tasks can be directly on the MFP display, without a computer. Its software interface can be customized to each individual office, depending on required tasks: this customization allows, for example, to display only the desired buttons, and to install additional applications. One, for example, you need to scan documents with their subsequent loading into the information system of the customer/SED, and others — extracting data from ID documents.

Install apps from the gallery Xerox App Gallery — it is a kind of App Store (or Google Play, whatever) from Xerox. Here you can place the app as the company's partners and third-party developers, and the apps themselves, there are paid and free. So, for example, the application Service Xerox Easy Translator provides instant machine translation, and the service — even to seek the assistance of professional interpreters for a particular document. May be transferred and sending the results by e-mail and/or print to the printer with formatting of the original document.
