Business apps are gaining traction in the workplace and are just behind games in terms of number of downloads. Xerox is charging forward and reinforcing its leadership in mobile printing with five new business apps helping employees create, share and process information without servers, middle-ware or IT support.
“Smartphones and tablets open up tremendous opportunities to leverage our office technology, enabling people to be productive whether they are on-site or working remotely,” said Jim Rise, senior vice president, Office and Solutions Business Group, Xerox. “We are already recognized as a leader in office software and solutions, and with these business apps we are delivering new ways to drive productivity and agility.”
Android users can download the Xerox Print Service Plug-in for a range of print options including paper and color selection, finishing features such as stapling and collating, and a PIN code for a secure release. Free on Google Play, the app identifies and configures the device to Xerox multifunction printers (MFPs), ConnectKey-enabled MFPs and office printers. For Android users in a mixed vendor print environment, the Mopria Alliance offers a universal plug-in that facilitates two-sided printing, paper size and page range. As a founding member of the Alliance, Xerox actively supports developing standards for simple wireless printing.
