Xerox upgrades ConnectKey for document capture on-the-go
New ConnectKey add-on to help enterprises transition from paper to digital workflows
Xerox has issued new versions of Xerox ConnectKey for DocuShare v1.5 and ConnectKey for SharePoint v1.3, in a bid to help today's workers securely and efficiently access information and incorporate hard copy content into document workflows - whether in the office, at home or onsite with a customer.
Like traditional software solutions, ConnectKey tools extend the capabilities of multifunction printers (MFPs) built on Xerox ConnectKey Technology. But unlike traditional software, ConnectKey tools do not require a dedicated server, PC or IT resource - they are server-less solutions that can be downloaded to a ConnectKey enabled MFP via USB or CentreWare Internet Services.
A flexible approach to managing content
Xerox ConnectKey for DocuShare v1.5 is a one-button scanning solution that's easy to set up and use, helping users seamlessly transition from paper to digital workflows. The add-on allows the administrator of a DocuShare site to assign a set of soft buttons to the touch screens of selected MFPs so users can easily scan documents to defined DocuShare collections, shared network folders and email addresses.
The new ConnectKey for DocuShare v1.5 offers secure card authentication with Single Sign-on and can be used through a protected firewall. Since scan information and user information is captured with the scanned document, users can locate a scan destination instantly. Other seamless integrations include the ability to select property values from menus on the MFP touch screen and the ability to search additional document properties.
A streamlined workflow to enhance office productivity
With the flexibility to capture and route to SharePoint as well as Windows folders, Xerox ConnectKey for SharePoint v1.3, now powered by Nuance's OmniPage OCR engine, is ideal for any office that needs to archive and share paper-based documents. Using a Xerox MFP, users can route documents directly into a precise document repository folder - just like they would from a PC - browse the database, name and add key indexing information to the document before they scan.
Availability and pricing
The Xerox ConnectKey for DocuShare and ConnectKey for SharePoint is available at Xerox Emirates as a chargeable option.
