NORWALK, Conn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Xerox office technology, software and apps continue to achieve industry recognition – most recently from IDC and Buyers Laboratory LLC (BLI) – while customers realize the benefits of Managed Print Services (MPS) facilitated by these offerings.
For the third consecutive year, Xerox was positioned as a leader in the IDC MarketScape: U.S. Smart Multifunction Peripheral 2014-2015 Vendor Assessment1, while BLI selected Xerox as the Document Imaging Solutions Line of the Year winner for the second year in a row.
According to the IDC MarketScape, Xerox’s ConnectKey® technology is the core of its smart MFP strategy and helped secure the company’s leadership standing. ConnectKey upgrades are now available on a full suite of secure, cloud-ready MFPs and provide mobile and office workers more ways to be productive, from remote printing to creating apps that simplify the way they work.
A key element of the IDC MarketScape report noted that “Xerox's smart MFPs play a foundational role in the company's Next Generation MPS strategy to specifically address security, mobility and workflow automation.”
“The synergy between our technology and our Next Generation MPS offerings allows organizations to easily and quickly capture productivity gains as well as cost savings that come with controlling print and managing content,” said Jim Rise, senior vice president, Office and Solutions Business Unit, Xerox.
Document imaging solutions propels BLI award
Winning BLI’s Document Imaging Solutions Line of the Year award for the second time was a result of Xerox’s exceptional portfolio of document imaging capabilities, including solutions enabled by ConnectKey technology, Xerox App Studio and Xerox Mobile Print Cloud.
“Xerox is particularly adept at developing solutions that address customers’ pain points to solve business challenges, as well as at partnering with third-party developers to offer best-of-breed solutions,” said Jamie Bsales, senior editor, Solutions Coverage, BLI.
Xerox also received BLI’s 2015 awards for Outstanding Achievement in Innovation (Xerox App Studio), Outstanding Small Business Mobile Print Solution (Xerox Mobile Print Cloud) and Outstanding Enterprise Mobile Print Solution (Xerox Mobile Print Solution).
“As our customers raise the bar on efficiency and productivity, we are responding with the most advanced multifunction technology built around the ConnectKey ecosystem and a complete set of innovative solutions,” said Rise. “We are also focused on helping our partners and resellers deliver unique and differentiated workflows through the Xerox App Studio and ConnectKey apps.”
