Xerox launches AltaLink Digital Workplace Assistant

Xerox announced its new Xerox AltaLink C8100 and Xerox AltaLink B8100 Series multi-function printers (MFPs) that can better support today’s flexible work environment and help companies speed their digital transformation with access to the ConnectKey ecosystem of apps.

In addition to its printing capabilities, the AltaLink 8100 series helps speed workplace digitization 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 digitization, 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,” says 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 cybersecurity 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 simplifies reporting and management of security events.

For the past two years, Keypoint – BLI has named Xerox workplace suite and ConnectKey apps the Document Imaging Software Line of the Year Award and Outstanding Job Management & Mobile Print Solution.

The AltaLink C8100/B8100 are available immediately in India by the end of November 2020.

The Covid-19 pandemic led to the country-wide lockdown on 25 March 2020. It will be two years tomorrow as I write this. What have we learned in this time? Maybe the meaning of resilience since small companies like us have had to rely on our resources and the forbearance of our employees as we have struggled to produce our trade platforms.

The print and packaging industries have been fortunate, although the commercial printing industry is still to recover. We have learned more about the digital transformation that affects commercial printing and packaging. Ultimately digital will help print grow in a country where we are still far behind in our paper and print consumption and where digital is a leapfrog technology that will only increase the demand for print in the foreseeable future.

Web analytics show that we now have readership in North America and Europe amongst the 90 countries where our five platforms reach. Our traffic which more than doubled in 2020, has at times gone up by another 50% in 2021. And advertising which had fallen to pieces in 2020 and 2021, has started its return since January 2022.

As the economy approaches real growth with unevenness and shortages a given, we are looking forward to the PrintPack India exhibition in Greater Noida. We are again appointed to produce the Show Daily on all five days of the show from 26 to 30 May 2022.

It is the right time to support our high-impact reporting and authoritative and technical information with some of the best correspondents in the industry. Readers can power Indian Printer and Publisher’s balanced industry journalism and help sustain us by subscribing.
