Xerox Wins Coveted 2017 Document Imaging Software Line of the Year Award from the Analysts at BLI

Fairfield, NJ – Buyers Laboratory (BLI), the world’s leading independent evaluator of document imaging software, hardware and services, today announced that Xerox Corporation has won BLI’s coveted 2017 Document Imaging Software Line of the Year award. Given once a year, this award recognizes the vendor that offers the most complete and robust software portfolio across the range of document imaging application categories BLI covers on its bliQ subscription service.

To determine the Software Line of the Year award recipient, BLI’s experienced staff of analysts considers the imaging software each leading printer and MFP OEM officially sells and supports via its direct and independent sales channels. The OEM’s own products, as well as products from partner ISVs (independent software vendors), are taken into account and the portfolio is judged on both the breadth and depth of the products offered. For the breadth of the portfolio, BLI’s team considers how complete each vendor’s line is across the most important classes of document imaging software including document management, document capture and workflow, cost accounting and recovery, print management, and more. Another consideration is the variety of offerings in each of those categories to suit the needs of different size organizations, from small businesses to global enterprises. Judgment on the quality of the solutions is based on BLI’s lab evaluations, which take into account a solution’s feature set, value, ease of use and other attributes.

“Winning BLI’s Document Imaging Software Line of the Year award is an impressive achievement, and Xerox has accomplished the feat four years running,” noted Jamie Bsales, Director, Office Workflow Solutions Analysis, at BLI. “According to our analysis, Xerox offers an unmatched portfolio of both first-party and third-party software solutions that address customers’ document-centric ‘pain points’ and solve business challenges.”

Xerox earned points for several of its own class-leading software offerings, including the Xerox App Gallery for downloading time-saving “apps” and workflow shortcuts to Xerox MFPs with compatible ConnectKey technology, the unique Xerox Easy Translator Service for generating translation of hardcopy documents right at compatible MFPs, and the Xerox FreeFlow family of production-print solutions, and the Xerox DocuShare line of document management products.
