When looking at multifunction printers, look for fully integrated functions that work together to create more value than the sum of their parts. The functions should be easy to learn with a clear and consistent user interface. Also look for additional software that allows you to take full advantage of digital documents, while also considering network features that give users full access to your network.
ConnectKey Technology-enabled multifunction printers have been designed with the following features to ensure they're easy for you and your team to use.
Consistent operation across products. A common look and feel across all ConnectKey Technology-enabled devices makes it easy and intuitive for users to go from one Xerox® product to another without additional training.

Scanning Tools for Convenience
Converted paper documents. Scan documents to create text-searchable PDFs and single and multipage PDFs for easy archiving, organizing and searching.
Single Touch Scanning. Use the Single Touch Scan feature to create a dedicated, easy-to-locate scan button directly on the color touchscreen interface. Assign the Single Touch Scan button its own scanning workflow for fast document distribution and archiving.
On-box Optical Character Recognition, searchable PDF. Easily convert hard-copy documents into a searchable PDF format for faster retrieval.
Copying and Printing
Advanced copy and print features. These devices greatly simplify everyday office tasks, providing plenty of support for specialized print applications including Annotation, Bates Stamping and ID Card Copy.
Network management. ConnectKey Technology integrates seamlessly with virtually any network environment, simplifying work for the network administrator. Network configuration is easy with Xerox® CentreWare® install wizards, eliminating the need for IT staff to reset parameters, connect users or manage job queues device by device. Onboard SNMP support lets customers integrate with other network frameworks.
Queue management. Control workflow, route jobs and manage print destinations across an entire enterprise by consolidating print from data centers, departments and desktops to a single point and distributing the output to production, workgroup, desktop printers and other destinations.
As the number of mobile workers increases, so does the need for multifunction printers that keep up with the demand.
Xerox® multifunction printers enabled with Xerox® ConnectKey® Technology allow mobile professionals to stay connected to the all the tools they need, allowing more flexibility regardless of location.
