It’s nice to be recognized for a job well done. And when the accolades come four years in a row, it’s proof that Xerox’s hard work — of making work easier — is paying off.
Xerox are the proud recipient of Buyer’s Laboratory, Inc. (BLI)’s 2017 Document Imaging Software Line of the Year Award. BLI is an independent evaluator of document imaging hardware, software and services. For the fourth year running, BLI ranked Xerox above competitors for “an unmatched portfolio of both first-party and third-party software solutions.”
With recent buzz about our Xerox® ConnectKey® technology and apps, it’s easy to see why BLI awarded us. But it was more than just ConnectKey. Several factors came together to help us win this prestigious honor:
- Our wide range of document imaging solutions for office, enterprise and production-print customers.
- Outstanding portfolio of Xerox-proprietary software.
- Unmatched breadth of third-party/independent software vendor (ISV) partner applications we offer customers.
- Strong showings in tests conducted by BLI in key areas such as: feature set, productivity, ease of use and value.
- Best rankings in print management and mobile printing applications.
What Sealed the Deal
BLI gives several examples in its award report of how our software clinches top honors. Here are a few:
Xerox ConnectKey technology turns a multifunction printer (MFP) into the center of a complete productivity ecosystem. ConnectKey-enabled MFPs offer fully integrated mobile and cloud solutions for scanning, printing and more, plus top-notch security and cost-control. ConnectKey makes it possible to deliver these tools and capabilities via apps from Xerox, our channel partners, and independent software vendors. The apps are downloadable online via the Xerox® App Gallery, or directly via the ConnectKey-enabled MFP’s touchscreen.
Xerox® Easy Translator Service offers instant machine language translations from an MFP, phone or PC. Easily translate and localize over 44 languages, including French, German, Lithuanian, Japanese and Hmong Daw.
From job management and prepress tools, to variable data publishing and print servers, Xerox® FreeFlow® offers everything digital print professionals need to automate everyday operations, optimize printing, and enable new revenue streams through creative products and services.
Xerox® DocuShare® is enterprise content management (ECM) for every organization, from small businesses up to large enterprises. DocuShare helps knowledge workers be more efficient by focusing on the intersection of people, paper and processes.
