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 users will surely appreciate, but for the most part the machine is designed to do one job and to do it incredibly well: process documents.
You’ll notice that the device is called a document processor and not simply a copier; this is because it can do more than just make copies. The Xerox Instant Print Kiosk can copy, print (e.g., from a file), scan, and fax documents of nearly any format, which can help give back some much-needed freedom and flexibility to self-serve users.
If your business, organization, or educational environment has foot traffic in need of any of these features, the Xerox Instant Print Kiosk is a cutting-edge solution. And yes, it has great specifications. Let’s take a look at them now:
But How Well Does it Perform?
From a technical standpoint, the Instant Print Kiosk is impressive. Speed without sacrificing quality is an important point for self-serve kiosks (you don’t want customers waiting around for the person in front of them to finish, especially in a setting where only one device is available).
That’s why this kiosk from Xerox has been designed to print up to 55 pages per minute (50 if color). Monochrome prints are crisp and clean, and color prints are output at a vibrant 1200 x 2400 DPI.
What about scans? Users will likely enjoy a greater deal of accuracy on scans made by the Xerox Instant Print Kiosk than their consumer-grade units at home thanks to its dual-head, single-pass scanner. Again, with speed being a vital component of a self-serve unit, the dual-head on the scanner allows for double-sided scanning, effectively cutting the time it takes most devices to scan a stack of documents in half.
How Do Users Operate the Xerox Instant Print Kiosk?
Customers interact with the unit through a crystal clear 10.1 inch color touchscreen, which displays a simple-yet-robust series of options. Users are presented with colored, easy-to-read icons for the different functions: copy, print, scan, and fax.
In addition to reading from portable media such as USB thumb drives, the kiosk additionally allows users to access most popular cloud storage services, including Dropbox, Google Drive, SharePoint, and others. Access is secure and the user is automatically logged out once they’re finished with the device.
Unlike certain competitor devices, payment processing is simple and flexible. Instead of old-school coin-op machines, the Xerox Instant Print Kiosk accepts card-based payments. In addition to debit or credit cards, the machine can also be configured to accept student cards with support for Blackboard and cboard. Educational facilities rejoice—your setup work has just been made about a hundred times easier.
Finally, one of the nicest features of the Xerox Instant Print Kiosk is the ability to display a print preview before processing a job. This means that customers will be less likely to make mistakes and be more likely to get exactly what they want with perfect accuracy.
