Your office printer is seemingly just a box that sits in the corner of your office and prints in black and white or in color, right? Wrong! It can also make scans and copies, oh and send faxes too. Well yes…but that’s still not all!

Over the years, print technology has evolved and in today’s world, your multifunction printer (MFP) can do much more than just print, copy, scan, and fax. It’s more like a smart workplace assistant and has the capability to scan files straight to email or cloud storage, translate documents into different languages, convert documents to audio, scan receipts into expense systems, print straight from your CRM system, and so much more!

how printer apps boost productivity

There are so many capabilities and features to be utilized with today’s MFPs through the use of printer apps. Xerox has complied an extensive library of apps, that can be use for in the office or by remote and hybrid employees, that have been created with productivity in mind.

Boost Employee Productivity with Printer Apps

Boost Remote and Hybrid Worker Productivity

While printer apps can enhance your workplace workflows and boost employee productivity, they can also be a valuable tool for remote and hybrid workers. One of the major keys to set your remote and hybrid workers up for success is by ensuring they have access to the same tools and functionality whether they are in the physical office or working from home.

While it doesn’t make sense to set up each worker’s home office with a larger office copier, there are many affordable home office printers available that can provide the same features and functionality (including printer apps!) as the office MFPs and copiers do, but on a smaller scale.

When everyone in the organization has access to the same print, scan, fax, and app features, no matter where they are working from, productivity levels will rise and can be kept high. Thus, employees can spend more time focusing on their work and utilize these productivity apps to enhance their workflows – working smarter and more efficiently.
