In a new move to mobilize print services for people on the go, Xerox has developed the Xerox Instant Print Kiosk, offering convenient print opportunities to mobile users and a new revenue stream for businesses and venues who offer the service. The idea is simple but brilliant – secure self-service printing, copying, scanning and faxing applications via the cloud for users on the move.
Xerox is continually redefining the user experience and the Xerox Instant Print Kiosk is a way of adding value for both print providers and print users. Unlike the old-fashioned coin-operated devices, the Print Kiosk offers high-speed connectivity with a wide range of capabilities, so there’s more choice for on-the-go productivity, and enhanced revenue for kiosk owners. Xerox sees the kiosks as being ideal for high footfall areas such as retail settings, hotels, airports, convention centres, colleges and libraries. Payment can be made using a number of options including credit cards, gift cards and student cards.
The key to success for any self-service user device is making it intuitive to use. The Kiosk features a large touchscreen with clear step-by-step instructions, guiding users to securely print from cloud sites such as Dropbox, Electronics for Imaging, PrintMe, Google Drive, OneDrive and SharePoint. Remote device administration, payment transactions, accounting, cloud-based faxing and end-to-end data security protection are all included in the solution.
The Xerox Instant Print Kiosk is nothing if not versatile. Covering a wide range of applications, it makes the perfect solution for any circumstance when print users don’t have access to their own office printer. It can be used by people who are travelling or on holiday and need to stay in touch, and it could be used at airports to allow travellers to print boarding passes. College and university libraries equipped with Instant Print Kiosks could save students the need for their own printer, and its availability at business centres and convention centres clearly represents a value-added revenue stream.
