Xerox Clinches Four Awards
This Pick season, Xerox Corporation has earned four awards, including an Outstanding Achievement, two Pick titles and BLI’s prestigious 2015 Solutions Line of the Year award (announced separately).

“Xerox’s years of experience in the document imaging space shine through in its mobile print solutions,” said BLI’s Schell. While both mobile print solutions offer compatibility with hardware from any manufacturer and other convenient features, Xerox Mobile Print Cloud 2 is a hosted solution, a must for small businesses, and Mobile Print Solution 3 resides on an organization’s own servers. Therefore BLI has awarded Xerox Mobile Print Cloud 2 with a Winter 2015 Pick as “Outstanding Small Business Mobile Print Solution,” and Xerox Mobile Print Solution 3 with a Winter 2015 Pick as “Outstanding Enterprise Mobile Print Solution.”

“Organizations are balancing the need to accelerate productivity and adapt to a changing technology landscape while addressing the use of mobile devices,” said Fred Ramsey, Global Marketing manager, Office and Solutions Business Group, Xerox. “Xerox Mobile Print Cloud offers easy, seamless mobile printing to both Xerox and non-Xerox printers and multifunction printers. With robust accounting, cost controls and security it’s a perfect fit for small or medium sized organizations who want to stay focused on their core business without adding extra overhead.”

Furthermore, Xerox impressed analysts with its easy-to-use app creation and implementation tool, App Studio, earning it a BLI Outstanding Achievement in Innovation award. “Creating an ecosystem of interconnected software and hardware for customers puts resellers in a better position for maintaining long-term customer relationships,” said Bsales. “But ultimately it is the customers who benefit, as these apps can help increase efficiency and productivity in the workplace by providing one-touch access to common workflows at the top level of the user interface.”

“Finding new ways to support our Channel Partners’ growth and strengthen their customer relationships were reasons for creating the Xerox App Studio. Channel Partners can now create simple-to-use customized apps and workflows on multifunction printers offering productivity gains for their customers while opening doors to new revenue streams for themselves,” said Jill Daddis, manager, Solutions, Office and Solutions Business Group, Xerox.
