Does your business or organization have foot traffic that needs to be able to copy, print, scan, or fax?
The traditional solution businesses used to provide their customers with are self-service document processors (what used to be called “coin-op” printers). That’s still true today, but the machines are much more modern—and Xerox’s entry into the self-serve document machine arena is definitely something you want to take note of if you have customers with these needs.
“Traditional” walk-up printers were notoriously difficult to use, slow, and for many users, required employee intervention (i.e., a member of the staff had to come over to sort out one problem or another). Most of the people reading this have probably had an experience like that, even if they’re experienced IT professionals.
The Xerox Instant Print Kiosk is anything but traditional. This all-in-one walk-up printer isn’t just jam-packed with features and impressive technical specifications, it’s easy to use. Which, as it turns out, is more important than you might think—let’s unpack that.
Why The Xerox Instant Print Kiosk is Easier to Operate, Faster, and More Flexible Than Any Other Walk-Up Printer on the Market
Ease of use is important for any public-facing technology. While readers of this blog might be a bit more technically-inclined than the average person, not everyone knows their way around modern technology—and that’s fine, because they’re probably experts in some other awesome thing that we know nothing about. However, to accommodate the most customers, a walk-up printer needs to be easy and intuitive to use.
The Xerox Instant Print Kiosk does this remarkably well, without sacrificing access to any of its more advanced features. The 10.1 inch touchscreen display presents users with clearly defined (and color coded) options to print, scan, copy, or fax. Once an option is selected, the user is guided through the entire journey from selecting their document to how they want to process it.
Once the job begins, it’s not going to take long to finish. The Instant Print Kiosk has a 55 page-per-minute output for black and white prints, and 50 PPM for color prints. Color prints will look especially crisp at 1200 x 2400 DPI, and scans through the dual-head scanner will go twice as fast as anywhere else, since the unit can scan both sides of a sheet simultaneously.
These features all add up to a customer experience that’s undeniably smooth, and as it turns out, that’s pretty important for business.
The Xerox Instant Print Kiosk Improves Walk-Up Printer Profitability
When a walk-up printer is easy to use, customers will be less likely to require assistance from staff members. Annually, that can save dozens or hundreds of hours of work. Furthermore, mistakes will be less likely to be made, and thus resources like paper and toner won’t be wasted as often due to accidents or improper configurations.
Thanks to the Instant Print Kiosk’s modern abilities to allow users to access documents securely from their cloud accounts like Google Drive, Dropbox, Office 365, or others, customers will have the flexibility they need to get their documents processed quickly and precisely. This can come in handy especially in educational environments.
