Last month we introduced to you the Xerox ColorQube 9200 Series that has a new pricing structure that allows customers to pay only for the amount of color they use on a given page. The ColorQube creates images by printing tiny spots (called pixels) of black and color on a page. The machine automatically counts how many color pixels are used to produce each printed page and each page is tallied on the appropriate meter. For example, an office document with a logo and small graphic will cost the same as if it were printed in black. Documents with moderate color coverage, like a Web page or brochure, will cost approximately 3 cents, while those printed pages with heavy color, such as a flyer, will cost an average of 8 cents. As a result ColorQubes are reducing customer’s color print costs by 62%! Now why not combine the ColorQube with the power of a Xerox Print Assessment? Xerox uses an in depth web-based tool tailored to your specific document environment. We map out the locations of each print asset, gather monthly volumes, and speak to end users. This gives the Xerox team a holistic view of your current state costs. We then work with your organization to develop a solution that is right for your work environment, and as a result find direct and indirect savings of up to 30% vs. the current state. The Study is a FREE, value-add service performed by your Xerox Account Manager. To learn more please contact me to discuss further.

Smaller scan files mean greater office productivity The power of scanning gives your office more workflow options, making it easy to turn hard copy documents into electronic files for fast distributing, organizing and archiving. But many popular multifunction devices lack the ability to adequately compress a scanned image, resulting in greater strain on network bandwidth or files with degraded image quality. Xerox MFPs, however, feature advanced scan-file compression technology that greatly reduces a scanned image’s file size — without affecting image quality. In analyses conducted by Industry Analysts, Inc., Xerox WorkCentre products tested produced scan files up to 9 times smaller than those produced by the competitive products tested. The fileAverage Scanned File Size Based on Entire Test Suite (9 Jobs) size advantage delivered by Xerox means you can create and distribute high-resolution scanned images that contain both text and graphical elements without consuming excessive network bandwidth. “ Scan to e-mail includes LDAP functionality for easy integration with corporate email directories. In addition, Xerox compression technology ensures scanned files are the smallest possible size for fast delivery and reduced network load without affecting image quality. “ - Buyers Laboratory, Inc.
