ConnectKey is the biggest launch in the 110-year history of Xerox.
“Biggest” in terms of the number of products that we will release over the next for months, but also “biggest” in terms of how they will change the fundamental nature of the connected workplace. Yes, this from the company that introduced the world’s first plain-paper, fully automatic copier (1959). And the personal computer (1973). And laser printing 1977). The list goes on, but that’s not my point.
Xerox has never stood still, and Xerox people have never rested on their considerable laurels. The point being, there’s always opportunity for another fundamental change in how we work.
