PLEASANTON, Calif. — A UK publication that covers the latest in document and content management and imaging and retrieval technologies recently named Xerox Scanners “Company/Brand of the Year” for its line of Xerox DocuMate® scanners. Document Manager Magazine also selected the Xerox DocuMate 5445 as its Workgroup Imaging Product of the Year, making this the 4th award file the scanner has won.
“As a relative newcomer to the document scanners market in Europe, we were thrilled to receive six nominations this year,” said Erik Banis, managing director Europe, the Middle East, Africa and developing markets at Visioneer®, a Xerox licensing partner. “We were up against some huge companies in the industry, so we are over the moon to win two awards, especially Company of the Year.”
Banis and his team have expanded strategic business relationships with partners throughout Europe, the Middle East, Africa and Russia. Changes to distribution, service delivery and pricing models have provided European IT channels with immediate access to the full Xerox DocuMate scanner product line and warranty options. The success of this new business model has enabled Xerox DocuMate scanners to grow in the market and has been a major contributing factor to the ongoing success of the brand.
The awards, determined by the votes of magazine readers, have been gaining strength year after year, even through the recent difficulties seen by many in the market,” said David Tyler, the magazine’s editor. The DM Awards ceremony, was held Oct. 23 in London
The Xerox DocuMate 5445 document scanner, priced at $1,195, is available through online channel partners, VARs and major resellers.
