Stay competitive and nimble by streamlining workflow processes. Connect Apps is a powerful tool for achieving operational efficiency to work better and faster. Here’s how.

How Connect Apps Make a Workflow Easier

The extensive Xerox ConnectKey app gallery is home to all sorts of productivity tools. These tools are specifically designed to make it easier to access critical information and capabilities to get work done faster. Connect Apps make workflows easier by:

● Reducing the number of steps necessary to complete a task.

● Automating certain features to eliminate opportunities for human error.

Companies using Xerox MFPs can leverage the many options in the app gallery to improve the way existing software or services interact with the printer. Here are XMC’s best recommendations by vertical.

Make the Most of ConnectKey With These Apps

ConnectKey’s ever-evolving gallery of apps holds dozens of native and third-party tools to help users achieve greater heights of efficiency and success. Likewise, many companies are already using key business applications or software to undertake their most mission-critical processes. Connect Apps enhance the connectivity of these tools with office printers.

General Productivity-Enhancing Apps

Regardless of the industry or the vertical, there are a few things which every office uses. Recognize any of these tools? Consider the Connect App for:

Cloud Collaboration Tools: Leverage the ConnectKey apps for Dropbox, Google Drive, Office 365, OneDrive, or Amazon WorkDocs to print, scan, copy, and share files directly from an MFP to any of these services.

Salesforce: Make it easier to manage documents to spend more time working with customers. The Connect App for Salesforce automates document processes to make it faster and easier to do the paperwork for clients.

QuickBooks Online and Concur: According to Xerox, one expense report takes an average of 20 minutes to complete. The Connect Apps for QuickBooks Online and Concur slash that time and helps make sure invoices, receipts, and expense records stay neat.

DocuSign: Collecting signatures is always tricky, especially online. The Connect App for DocuSign integrates not just with the MFP, but also with other Connect Apps for Salesforce, QuickBooks, and more.

EverNote: Print and scan directly to and from an EverNote account to keep track of ideas and information.

Clio and iManage: Print or scan directly to and from a Clio or iManage account to extend the reach of this leading cloud-based software. Simplify legal practice management and make it easier to keep files – and bills – in order.

Auto Redaction: Eliminate time-consuming manual searching for keywords that need to be redacted before a file can be released. Auto redaction helps keep sensitive information secure and out of sight.
