Simplicity redefined.

Multifunction printers that simplify your work.

ConnectKey is technology and software that connects multifunction printers to the way work gets done.

With ConnectKey, you can do much more than just print, scan, fax and copy. You can print from just about anywhere through mobile print capabilities. Also, documents can be scanned directly to cloud services like Google Drive, Evernote and Microsoft Office 365 for storage and collaboration.

You can develop simple applications and embed them on the multifunction printer with easy-to-use tools. For example, a health insurance company can add a feature to its device that allows scanning of reimbursement claims directly into their payment system with just one touch.

IT professionals can manage ConnectKey multifunction printers easily, and make applications more accessible to your workforce – right from the device's touch screen. Plus, ConnectKey provides a common user interface across multiple devices – making them easy to use.

And, on multifunction printers enabled with ConnectKey, your data is secured and protected from malware with security from McAfee.

ConnectKey enabled multifunction printers adapt to the way you work – on the go, virtually and through the cloud – allowing you to focus on what matters: your real business.

ConnectKey OverviewExplore Productivity

Work the way you want.

Discover new levels of productivity.

Staying up to speed means having the right kind of help. That's why we have technology and software that empowers you to work faster and collaborate better.

Find contacts faster

Spend less time looking for contacts with an enhanced address book that stores all email, fax, and scan information in a single contact. Simplify workflows with “favorites” that highlight common destinations.

Embedded support

Reduce employee frustration and downtime with on-device access to the full Xerox Online Support database from both the user interface and the print driver – the same content available to your support technicians – and Embedded Help Videos.

Remote control panel

Operate the multifunction printer user interface from any office workstation as though you were standing right in front of it. Remotely train users and configure multifunction printer settings with the peace of mind that integrated security allows only a single authorized operation at a time to prevent multiple remote procedures.

Better device drivers

Interact with the Print Driver simulator ›

Simplify device use and management through a consistent driver platform across all ConnectKey enabled multifunction printers. Train people once for multiple devices.

Faster multifunction printer setup

Speed up your setup by easily cloning existing multifunction printer configurations and sending them to a similar ConnectKey enabled multifunction printer. Not only is this faster, it ensures consistent settings for security compliance.

Customize your solutions

Extensible Interface Platform® (EIP) serverless technology allows creation of applications to run on ConnectKey enabled multifunction printers, without the need for additional IT infrastructure. This allows you to simplify and personalize the usability of your device with a range of capabilities from support applications to scanning.

Xerox device management software

Interact with the CentreWare Internet Services simulator ›

Our free device management software tool, CentreWare Internet Services, has a streamline UI look and feel and allows for updating of devices remotely, which gives you added productivity advantages. It also offers support of McAfee Embedded Alerts. Learn more ›

Connect safely.

Security that protects your data and your business.

Businesses are only getting more connected and that brings increased risks, even for multifunction printers. With ConnectKey, you can finally protect your multifunction printers similar to how you protect PCs from viruses and malware, and control access to end points on your network – making your multifunction printer a fully secured network citizen.

McAfee® Embedded Security

Take comfort that only approved, predefined applications, code and files will run on your Xerox multifunction printers – the first in the industry to protect themselves from potential outside threats.

With ConnectKey, Xerox is the first company to offer McAfee whitelisting technology for multifunction printers. This means you can:
  • Detect and prevent unauthorized access and tampering of multifunction printer files and send alerts.
  • Have a single point of reference for monitoring, reporting and alerts through the McAfee Enterprise security console ePolicy Orchestrator and Xerox Managed Print Services tool set.
  • Lock multifunction printer configurations for organizational compliance and to reduce the need for manual software updates to stay ahead of emerging threats.

Get additional, proactive data protection with McAfee® Integrity Control that integrates with your organization's processes and doesn't cause access or productivity headaches.

Cisco® TrustSec Integration

Cisco® TrustSec integration provides comprehensive visibility of all ConnectKey enabled multifunction printers' endpoints to enforce IT-centric security policies and compliance.

Protection from day one

Standard out-of-the-box features go to work as soon as you power on your ConnectKey enabled multifunction printer.
  • 256Bit HD Encryption with Image Overwrite.
  • Secure Print with time deletion.
  • Secure external email connectivity that encrypts data transfer between multifunction
    printers and externally hosted mail servers.

Industry standards verification check

Satisfy Common Criteria Certification requirements with a simple audit to verify the embedded software controller has not been altered.

Explore ProductivityExplore Cost Control

Real-world challenges, real savings.

Do more with less.

Reducing costs is vital to staying competitive. ConnectKey saves you money with tools to help people work more efficiently and control the resources used by your multifunction printer.

Application Defaults

Save money on toner and ink while reducing wasteful printing with default settings – like printing multiple pages on a single page, or printing a user's ID in the margin instead of a banner sheet – as set by application and user.

Control User Permissions

Take full control of your print environment with detailed user permissions. Available options such as colour printing can be specified by users, groups, time of day and application. You can also distinguish between what capabilities are available for walk-up users.

Accounting

Enhance visibility into your organization's print activity with built-in accounting capabilities. ConnectKey also offers job-based network accounting that integrates with third-party accounting and billing solutions from Xerox Business Partners.

Xerox Earth Smart

By default, our print driver is set to two-sided printing, and the Earth Smart feature allows you to select other default settings such as not printing banner pages.

Power Management Tools

ConnectKey enabled multifunction printers are compatible with energy management solutions such as Cisco® EnergyWise that allow IT operations and facilities to measure and fine-tune power usage to realize significant cost savings.

Key aspects of the solution include:
  • IT power management for network-attached devices like ConnectKey enabled multifunction printers.
  • Visibility, control and automation – 24-hour monitoring and reporting, ease of configuration and policy enforcement.

For example, with Cisco energy management solutions, you can set power states for the multifunction printer for optimal power savings. You can also set the multifunction printer to go to sleep mode after 10 minutes, get current power consumption information, and set timeout to low power and sleep modes.

ENERGY STAR® Compliance

As a charter partner of the international ENERGY STAR® program, each new generation of Xerox® products offers more functionality and uses less energy – saving our customers money and reducing their carbon footprint.
