Xerox Rolls out ConnectKey Software for Its MFPs

With the new ConnectKey software system, users can file documents directly to the cloud, print using mobile devices, and develop apps on the company’s MFPs to speed workflows.

Xerox has introduced ConnectKey, a software platform embedded in the company’s multifunction printers (MFPs) that enables users to directly access cloud storage such as Dropbox, SharePoint Online, and Google Drive; develop and embed apps on the MFP; and print from any mobile device.

A total of 16 ConnectKey MFPs – including the new WorkCentre 5800 and 7800 Series – will also use the industry’s first embedded security protection from McAfee, giving IT managers more control 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.

FEATURES
ConnectKey’s solutions offer the following:

  • 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.
  • 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.

AVAILABILITY
The Xerox WorkCentre 5800 Series and the WorkCentre 7800 Series are available immediately; the WorkCentre 7220/7225, the Xerox ColorQube 9300 Series and the Xerox ColorQube 8700/8900 Series with the ConnectKey Controllers will be available in the second quarter.

The ConnectKey for SharePoint and ConnectKey Share to Cloud are available immediately; the Xerox Apps Studio will be available early in the third quarter.
