In today’s business world, a printer needs to be more than just a printer. Instead of simply spitting out pages of paper, today’s office printers and copiers have become hubs which the modern office workflow runs through.
The new line of Lexmark printers is truly designed with the modern office in mind. Using the E-Task Tablet Interface and Lexmark software, these printers give employees the power to increase productivity while still enjoying the top quality performance businesses have come to expect from Lexmark printers and Lexmark copiers.
Customize the E-Task Tablet Interface
Most people are familiar and comfortable with their tablets and smartphones. Lexmark has set out to replicate that type of experience using the E-Task Tablet Interface found on their new line of printers. This interface is designed like a high end mobile device to help ensure office workflow doesn’t stall while standing at the printer.
The large, colorful icons on the E-Task Tablet Interface are easy to see and select. Best of all, these icons can be customized to ensure your most-used features are easily accessible with no need for scrolling or cycling through pages. Just tap the selection you want and go!
Not only is this interface easy to use, it also provides users with a one stop shop for many of their workflow needs. Scan documents directly to popular cloud storage services like Google Drive without the need for messy workarounds that could waste time and compromise security.
Print How, When, & Where You Want
Business today relies less and less on people sitting behind a desk. Mobile technology has enabled employees to get out, be seen, and connect with customers on a more personal level. However, many people feel that office workflow issues keep them tethered to their desk.
There is evidence that shows that mobile employees are 23% more productive and much happier at their jobs. Business owners and managers simply need to remove roadblocks and allow their staff to do what they do best. That’s where Lexmark mobile printing solutions come into play. One of the most effective workflow improvement ideas is to simply allow employees to use the tools they already have.
The new Lexmark printers allow mobile users to print documents remotely without interrupting their workflow. Users can either use Lexmark software in the form of the Lexmark Mobile Printing app or use the built-in, native printing capabilities that come with iOS and Android smartphones. Wherever users may be, whatever device they may be using; it does not matter in the modern Lexmark office workflow.
Knowledge is Power
Using Lexmark software features, IT staff can monitor usage right down to the individual user level. This gives greater insight into the trends and needs of employees. Inefficiencies in office workflow can be identified and workflow improvement ideas can be generated using the available data.
Printing infrastructure can be adjusted to best meet the needs of your business and improve office workflow. Costs can be limited by implementing print quotas to cap color printing or total print output. With detailed information, your business can become more agile with the ultimate goal of increasing productivity.
Skip the Extra Steps
Extra steps to accomplish a final goal are some of the biggest unnecessary time wasting activities within a typical office environment. It’s not uncommon for users to scan documents, email those documents to their own inbox, and then upload the file to a network storage drive.
Lexmark printers improve office workflow by removing superfluous steps. The Lexmark software packed into the newest line of Lexmark printers enables simple, one-touch scanning to a network drive. Not only does this cut out extra steps to save time, but it can also improve document security within your business.
Every additional hoop users must jump through to get a document where it needs to go is another area for potential mistakes to occur. Even something as simple as an unattended computer with an open email inbox could compromise document security and privacy.
