In addition to its printing capabilities, the AltaLink 8100 series helps speed workplace digitisation with ultra-fast scanning of up to 270 images per minute and optical character recognition that allows clients to extract more value from information. Combined with ConnectKey apps, including connections to the most popular cloud solutions, these printers can support a key area of focus for businesses as they shift from physical to digital enterprises. According to a recent global ‘Future of Work Survey’ by Xerox, 34% of businesses are expediting digital transformation plans as a result of Covid-19.

Vineet Gehani, director, technology and channels, Xerox India, said, “We are committed to helping Indian businesses drive digital transformation and support a hybrid workforce. Our latest ConnectKey-enabled AltaLink C8100 and AltaLink B8100 improve workplace productivity through an intuitive user experience, mobile and cloud connectivity, access to a host of apps along with comprehensive security. As Indian companies increase digitisation, this new series of MFPs bring in an entirely new level of flexibility and efficiency to support the workforce with a collection of sophisticated applications for auto-redaction, conversion of handwritten notes to digital files and other functions.”

According to Quocirca, a Smart MFP is a key enabler for digital transformation, providing access to services and systems beyond digitization and into more complex business process and workflow automation.

“The most mature smart MFP platform is Xerox ConnectKey,” said Louella Fernandes, director, Quocirca. “Xerox ConnectKey-enabled MFPs support a range of cloud and mobile digital workflows, boosted by a broad ecosystem of Xerox and third party-developed apps. The Xerox App Gallery continues to only grow stronger with more apps and widening developer support.”

Additionally, a more flexible workforce brings with it heightened security concerns. Xerox partners with leading cyber security experts such as McAfee and Cisco to give AltaLink comprehensive built-in security that protect both device and network. Integration with industry leading security solutions like security information and event management solutions from McAfee, LogRhythm and Splunk simplify reporting and management of security events.
