Xerox™ ConnectKeyLeverage your technology investments
Imagine a single integration between SharePoint and all applications across finance, H&S, H.R etc
With the ConnectKey ecosystem, your Xerox printers become interactive digital workplace assistants to streamline communications and data capture.
SEE THE FUTURE
Printing is disappearing from the construction firm of the future. Your site operations will deploy their digital assistants as centralised hubs to deliver access to critical documentation.
By deploying ConnectKey enabled devices, you’re taking the first step towards ensuring documentation is never lost, offices aren’t drowning in paper, and your operational costs are reduced dramatically.
Best of all, these systems revolutionise H&S and regulatory compliance inn the field: there’s no easier way to manage credentials and to insulate your organisation from regulatory penalties.
App library for construction!
- Use the CapturePoint app to convert documents and then feed into Egnyte or SharePoint.
- Deploy alongside your HR systems for fool-proof time-sheet management.
- Use the Xerox Forms Manager to ensure all forms are routed and filed accurately, while reducing the risks associated with paper filing.
- Use the Xerox Mobile Link app to scan, fax or print from your mobile phone or tablet, while simultaneously uploading data to your cloud storage.
- In the field, reduce error rates by enabling your foremen to translate documents into 35 languages on-the-fly.
- Easy integration with your financial systems for instant expenses management.
Print managementusing the cloud to reduce costs
The world’s first truly secure enterprise printing solution: total transformation of the cost and security of printing.
Eliminate your print servers and administer a single Universal Printer Driver (UPD) to compress network traffic and deliver total security.
It’s 100% cloud-based too for a single centralised support point.
Uniprint is ideal: it converts your print queue to PDF, encrypts it, and then compresses by 90%: now you can deploy the right printers and freeup IT resources.
Usage in construction
Many printers, many locations, and limited bandwidth!
In such environments, print becomes a major expense: the IT support for the arrays of print servers is considerable.
It’s so successful, international giant, Martin Marietta have solved their printing problems with Uniprint across their 400+ sites in multiple countries.
iCompleat automates the entire accounts payable process, capturing purchase order invoice and streamlining approvals, all in one application.
The essence is Budget Holder Management, which enables both your finance and budget holders to manage the organisation’s spend and cash requirements ‘live’, with consolidated real-time reporting and analytics too. Best of all, iCompleat and its partner suite, eCompleat, are fully integrated with most major financial suites to be ‘plug and play’.
The risk of phishing attacks on educational institutions of every size is increasing because the hackers see the 100’s of buyers, and 1,000’s of invoices. The key defence is robust purchase order and invoice management. It’s called purchase-to-pay, and it streamlines your entire process.
From just £8 per month per user, including a comprehensive mobile application, it’s never been easier to combine digital transformation with financial oversight.
Digital transformationdo more with fewer resources
Secure enterprise file-sharing and collaboration is critical to the construction industry: your staff need to access and share files stored in the cloud or behind a firewall, from anywhere, using any device.
Whether at HQ or on-site, construction demands access to huge files, and that this be platform independent while functioning with or without the internet. While the industry has long relied on VPN and FTP, such approaches fail to meet modern data security demands, while failing to deliver the granular control and audit capabilities modern projects demand.

BIM & Collaborationproductivity for the construction industry
PlanGrid is the ultimate construction industry productivity software, ensuring your entire team are working with the current document set no matter where they are.
Beautifully fast, PlanGrid is easy to use and ideal for your site-based teams. They can access all of the project information from drawings, to specifications and snag-lists. It is, as they say, the single source of truth!
Assurance that the team are using the most up-to-date plans is a huge benefit. It’s much easier to keep plans updated posting RFI’s, issues and redlines than the old-fashioned way with paper. For example, delivering your ‘as built’ reports: all of the data is accurate and at your fingertips, ready to export.
