Xerox (NYSE: XRX) solves the paper puzzle with new services and tools that improve the way retailers, financial institutions, healthcare systems and other large enterprises deal with documents.
The offerings are the latest example of Xerox building greater automation and intelligence into its solutions and products, with the goal of helping clients better manage their critical business processes.
“Organizations can have a love-hate relationship with paper. It remains critical to everything from invoicing to collaboration, but it can also cripple productivity. That’s why workflow automation is a business priority,” said Mike Feldman, president, Large Enterprise Operations, Xerox. “Eliminating the inherent issues of manual, paper-based work streams can improve operations and accelerate benefits derived from managed print services.”
Xerox’s Workflow Automation Solution for Supply Chain Optimization, a service-based retail offering, uses the Datawatch Managed Analytics Platform to digitize, centralize, automate and govern error-prone and costly manual steps of a product lifecycle. The solution reduces labor and print costs, simplifies inventory and invoice reconciliation and improves fill rates by syncing data and applying automated analytics at the store level.
To further strengthen its vertical industry offerings, Xerox introduces several workflow automation solutions built on its partnership with Hyland, creator of OnBase, automate processes critical to business functions, such as:
Xerox Digital Alternatives, which lets users sign, annotate, share, save and read documents from one interface, is now available in a Xerox private cloud. New powerful analytics also accelerate an organization’s paper to digital migration. In addition, Xerox’s DocuShare® Private Cloud Service allows for easy deployment of an enterprise content management and collaboration platform to capture, manage and share content securely in the cloud from a mobile device or PC.
The Xerox Secure Print Manager Suite with User Analytics powered by CompleteView® from NewField IT provides an analysis of who is printing what, when, how much and where. With this insight, Xerox counsels businesses on how to optimize their print environments.
New apps designed for the mobile workforce make secure, no-hassle printing easier for large enterprises with the Xerox Print Service Plug-in for Android users, the Mobile Access App and Mobile Link App.
All of the new services and tools will be available in the U.S., Canada and Europe in Q2 2015.
