Xerox Reengineers ‘Scan-to-App Workflow’ for Small/Mid-size Businesses with Automated Cloud Solution

Exclusive to Xerox channel partners, Web Capture Service among new digitization tools to deliver added sources of revenue NORWALK, Conn., Nov. 16, 2016 – Importing a hard copy scan of purchase orders, invoices and receipts into applications like QuickBooks or Microsoft Office 365 can take multiple steps, several programs and a lot of time. This is especially true in small/mid-sized businesses (SMBs) that rely on web-based applications as part of their business processes. Xerox’s Web Capture Service helps channel partners solve this common scanning-to-application pain point for their customers with a simple, yet powerful workflow automation tool. For many SMBs, this is an important first step to automate workflows. In a Xerox survey, 72 percent of SMBs report they either have no workflow automation in place or have just started to implement these processes1. Xerox’s Web Capture Service is the only solution that automates and scans a document for immediate use without additional steps of creating files, renaming documents and importing it to an application. Sold only through Xerox channel partners, Web Capture Service can be used with any scanner regardless of brand and works with most web applications such as Microsoft Office 365, QuickBooks, Salesforce, SAP, Concur and many more. “Web Capture Service provides Xerox channel partners with an opportunity to offer SMBs a unique service that will initiate the path of business process automation,” said Ron Glaz, research director, Document Workflow Solutions, IDC. “There is nothing as sophisticated, yet as simple to use – particularly for the SMB segment – on the market today.” Web Capture Service is one of several new, exclusive Xerox offerings and tools that are designed to help channel partners capture revenue beyond hardware and supplies. · Xerox’s new Productivity Packs for ConnectKey® i-Series multifunction printers are pre-packaged, high value, turnkey apps targeted at industry verticals including education, healthcare, finance and general office. The apps eliminate manual, time consuming and error-prone tasks by converting paper-based processes into automated digital workflows. Each Productivity Pack contains five workflow applications specific to that vertical, so partners can dive into vertical market penetration without needing a software engineer and systems integrator to develop that workflow in-house. · With 18 new industry applications, use cases and sales strategies, the updated Xerox Partner Solutions Playbook 2.0, an interactive library of successful, real-world customer scenarios, helps partners easily sell workflow solutions, collaborate and share ideas with other partners, and custom build applications to grow their bottom line. “By partnering with Xerox, we have the tools we need to expand our offerings and stay profitable,” said Troy Tafoya, president, PDS, Inc. “Many of my customers want automation solutions but don’t know where to begin. Web Capture Service, Productivity Packs and the Partner Solutions Playbook 2.0 help my company establish a new expertise to meet their needs.”

Web Capture Service is available in Q4 2016 to select partners in the U.S. and in Q1 2017 to all partners in the U.S., Europe and Canada. Xerox’s Productivity Packs are available immediately in Europe and in 2017 in the U.S. and Canada. Xerox’s Partner Solutions Playbook 2.0 is available immediately in the U.S. and Europe.

The Computer Ate My File – The Struggle is Real

From ACDI
A trendy adage. . . perhaps. But when it comes to a disorganized computer desktop or a messy electronic file management system; the fact is, for most of us that sit behind a computer screen for any portion of our work day – the struggle is, indeed, real.
We’ve all been there. . . you need a file – stat. It’s got the graph in it that your boss needed – yesterday – for a project.
Did I save it as a PDF? Maybe it’s still in my email. But wait – I wouldn’t have kept it in my email. My handy dandy “keep-it-all-in-my-inbox-for-months-before-finally-dragging-it-to-a-random-folder” system got me in trouble last time – so now I save everything on my computer. Or the shared drive. Hmmmmm – I’ll do a search!! Up pops the standard issued search pane . . . frantic typing ensues, followed by the never ending, “search in progress” message. Laughing at me, mocking me, reminding me that I made a resolution at the first of the year that I’d do better, keep my files more organized. Yet it’s ..
