Xerox™ ConnectKeyLeverage your technology investments
Imagine a single office device to collaborate, grade, translate, share, and convert documents. Imagine that power integrated with your LMS and MS-SharePoint too!
With the ConnectKey ecosystem, your Xerox printers become interactive digital workplace assistants to ease the workload of both teaching and administrative staff.
According to an IDC survey, 23% of education staff in the U.S. cite “course material compilation” as among the most inefficient processes. With an app on your Xerox ConnectKey printer, you can scan hard-copy course materials directly to a course folder.
Save time and money: connect, scan and share!
With GDPR has come the realisation that data protection is an organisational imperative. Now you can have an app for secure email or digital signatures, or simply manage the attendance of staff and students. The possibilities are endless.
A full suite of education apps!
- Integrated support for multiple LMS systems (Blackboard, Moodle, Canvas)
- Help visually impaired students by converting scanned documents to MP3 audio.
- For ESL students, translate any document to 35 languages on-the-fly.
- Improve oversight by checking essays for plagiarism and grammar with the ProofReader app.
- Easy integration with your financial systems for instant expenses management.
- Easy integration with your HR systems for fool proof time-sheet management.
Print managementusing the cloud to reduce costs
A revolution within schools and universities, ePrint enables users to print from anywhere to anywhere.
Students and staff can print from any web-enabled device to their closest print location. They simply select their payment preferences, since it’s a self-service, fully managed system available 24/7 – just what students require.
So-called campus printing to print kiosks benefits the students, while your institution gets to eliminate printer fleets. This service can become a revenue generator too!
The world’s first truly secure enterprise printing solution: total transformation of the cost and security of printing.
Eliminate your print servers and save expenses! Infinity replaces all printer drivers with a single universal Printer Driver (UPD) to compress network traffic and deliver total security.
If your IT budgets are under pressure, and there’s appeal in reducing admin time and spend on unnecessary print servers, then this is the solution.
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, it’s fully integrated with the major financial & ERP applications. 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
When knowledge workers no longer need to perform manual data entry, routing and archiving of documents, they can focus on work that drives innovation and profit.
Across education, there are many critical processes which are best automated. Examples include student intakes, staff on-boarding, safeguarding, record keeping, data protection etc. With diminishing resources, one of the top solutions is to utilise DocuWare™ to integrate with your LMS and simultaneously eliminate both paper and manual data entry.
The York College example
- Implemented a DMS for all aspects of HR, finance, and student records.
- Enables self-serve access to student records and class notes held in 3rd party student records system.
- Eliminating paper from the education process is great for the environment and the budget!
Once we moved our documents into DocuWare, we had a massive reduction in our physical document storage requirements which made our move and continued residence in our new campus work brilliantly. The storage and retrieval of documents is so painless and has really streamlined our workflow.
