Xerox Corporation has been honored with a prestigious BLI PaceSetter award in the MFP Platforms & App Ecosystems category from Keypoint Intelligence – Buyers Lab (BLI).
Thanks to its uniquely view of the MFP device, embedded platform, and app ecosystem through Xerox’s Extensible Interface Platform (EIP), ConnectKey Technology, and online app portal offerings.
Multifunction printers are often the hub of an organization’s document-centric operations. Far beyond just simple print or copy functions, these “smart” devices can help streamline capture/routing tasks, initiate custom document workflows, control device usage, and more. These abilities are driven by underlying software platform technology and the “apps” layered on top that let developers leverage the MFP functions.
To determine which OEMs lead the market in these areas, analysts at Keypoint Intelligence conducted an in-depth evaluation of 13 document imaging OEMs. The study focused on dozens of points of differentiation divided into several strategic areas. Based on these findings, the analysts at BLI have recognized Xerox Corporation with a BLI PaceSetter award in the MFP Platforms & App Ecosystems arena.
In this analysis, Xerox was the only vendor to score in the top tier for each of the criteria categories:
- Platform Technology
- Developer Support
- Market Approach
- App Portfolio
Contributing to Xerox’s high score was a standout dedication to developer support, a considerable portfolio of apps that span the various solutions segment, and the intelligent platform design to support them. Perhaps most notable is Xerox’s unique go-to-market strategic approach, productizing the platform for dealers, customers, and ISVs as a truly customizable, beneficial tool for all.
