They say the third time’s a charm. But the fourth feels fantastic. I’m proud to say Xerox has won the coveted BLI Document Imaging Software Line of the Year Award—for the fourth consecutive time.

Buyers Laboratory, Inc. (BLI), an independent evaluator of document imaging products and services, chose Xerox based on the following criteria:

  • Our wide range of document imaging solutions for office, enterprise and production-print customers.
  • Outstanding portfolio of Xerox-proprietary software.
  • Unmatched breadth of third-party/independent software vendor (ISV) partner applications we offer customers.
  • Strong showings in tests conducted by BLI in key areas such as: feature set, productivity, ease of use and value.
  • Best rankings in print management and mobile printing applications.

What are some of our winning solutions that helped us clinch the award?

ConnectKey Technology

But let me get back to ConnectKey. Xerox ConnectKey technology turns a multifunction printer (MFP) into the hub of a complete productivity ecosystem. It offers security, cost control and fully integrated mobile and cloud-based solutions for printing, scanning and more, so your office is always at your fingertips. You can download time-saving apps and workflow shortcuts to a ConnectKey-enabled MFP using its touchscreen, or online via the Xerox App Gallery.

With everything ConnectKey offers, it’s more than just a print/copy/scan/fax machine. It’s a genuine workplace assistant. We’re proud BLI is recognizing our commitment to enabling the highest levels of productivity through software and solutions. Look for more new developments on this front in the coming months.
