Digital storage used to be pretty expensive. Back in 1995, a 1 gigabyte hard drive cost around $800. If you’re not a techie, here’s some perspective: a $20 USB thumb drive today can hold roughly 128 times that much data (and thumb drives aren’t even the most economical types of data storage). Crazy, right? Storage is only getting cheaper as time goes on, too. The point here is that in this era [...]

One of the biggest challenges facing healthcare providers today is finding a way to balance the convenience of modern technology with the strict requirements of HIPPA compliance. We’ve never had more ways to communicate data with one another, but not all are made the same in terms of security—which is an absolute must when it comes to sending and receiving patient information. While the emphasis on security for patient records from HIPPA [...]
We’ve been in the printing business for a long time—and during our years of experience, we’ve made a few observations that we’d like to share with you. Chief among these observations are that we estimate roughly 90% of companies make the following mistakes: Doesn’t track the cost of printing (and wildly underestimates how much it actually costs) Doesn’t have an optimized printing workflow Overpays for printing equipment, supplies, and technical support Do [...]
Google’s Gmail is one of the most popular email services in the world with over 1 billion (yes, billion-with-a-”B”) users worldwide—some sources claim even up to 1.5 billion—and nearly 75% of American consumers use it every single day. Needless to say, being able to use your Gmail account with your Xerox MFP isn’t just useful, it’s practically a must-have feature not only for office administrators, but staff as well. In today’s post, [...]
Coin-op copy machines have been around for decades. Interestingly, not a whole heck of lot of improvements have been made on them until relatively recently—and Xerox has just taken those improvements and kicked them into overdrive. At Smart Document Solutions, we’re proud to announce the arrival of the Xerox Instant Print Kiosk, a self-serve document processing machine with an impressive, user-friendly design. Yes, there are a few bells and whistles that advanced [...]
Is it time for your business to expand your printer fleet? Whether you’re adding on just one or two more printers or you need to install a dozen in a new department, Xerox has made sure that administrators have plenty of options to configure, control, and update just about any number of printers they like. In a moment, we’ll explain exactly how that’s done and how you can manage your fleet of [...]
Xerox, at first glance, appears to be in the office equipment business—but it might be more accurate to say that they’re really in the “saving time” business. We’ve been going over some of these topics on the Smart Document Solutions blog lately. If you missed them, make sure to check out our post about one-touch apps, how to give your printer natural-language voice commands with Xerox’s Gabi Voice, and some of the [...]
Most office staff have tasks that they perform daily, perhaps once or twice, and occasionally more depending on how busy things are. If you had a way to cut down on the time it takes to do some of these tasks, what would that mean for your business? Instead of minutes, what if these tasks took mere seconds to complete? Annually, it would amount to several hundred extra hours (at least) for [...]
Global Artificial Business Intelligence, or Gabi, is Xerox’s workplace assistant artificial intelligence. With Gabi running, you can speak commands to your printer using natural language—e.g., “Gabi, make 20 copies of this,” to scratch the tip of the proverbial iceberg, as Gabi can understand surprisingly complex requests. In today’s post, we’ll be taking a deeper look at Gabi, how “she” works, and how this technology can enhance productivity and accessibility in your office. [...]
Xerox multifunction printers really can do it all—copy, print, fax, and scan. Scanning is what we’ll be discussing in today’s post, because this technology has really come a long way, at least insofar as user options are concerned. Xerox MFPs allow users to scan in a variety of different ways, enabling the user to choose whichever is most convenient at the time. Scan to email, scanning to the cloud, and automated scanning [...]
Modern Xerox machines offer so many different features it would be impossible to test them all out in a single day (or probably even a week). Take a look at our post 7 Jaw-Dropping Features You Didn’t Know Your Xerox Printer Had for a few show-stoppers that barely scratch the surface of what you can do. Whether you want to access the cloud or work with a remote team in another part [...]
The majority of modern Xerox multifunction printers have some pretty awesome cloud capabilities. You likely already know that you can print a file directly from the cloud right to your MFP. Cloud printing by itself is a massive time saver, but there’s many other benefits to putting the cloud to work with your data and, by extension, your printer. Some of them are less obvious than others, but no less impressive. Let’s [...]
What kind of relationship do you have with your target audience? If you aren’t communicating with them through print marketing materials, you might not know them as well as you think. The good news is that if you already have modern Xerox office equipment, you have everything you need to strengthen that relationship. In this post, we’re going to discuss the demographics that respond well to print—and you might find some surprises [...]
