Xerox has introduced a new Arabic user interface for its range of ConnectKey technology-enabled multifunction printers (MFPs). The new interface has been introduced to meet customer demand from different industries and sectors especially the governmental sector and the small and medium enterprises sector that largely rely on Arabic in all their operations. This launch is aligned with Xerox’s 2016 strategy to launch a number of services and solutions targeting the different sectors in the Egyptian market with specific focus on the governmental sector in alignment with the 2020 MCIT vision and strategy to transform Egypt into a digital Society.
The Arabic user interface offers language support that enables users to access its native functionality entirely in Arabic with features such as completing important tasks with the help of the multifunction printer through the intuitive user interface’s touch points and easy menus, finding contacts faster with an enhanced address book that stores all email, fax and scan information in a unified address book and using integrated workflow software such as ConnectKey for SharePoint and Xerox DocuShare.
At the Cairo ICT 2015 expo, Xerox displayed the Arabic Language interface on a number of its printers such as WorkCentre 7855 and WorkCentre 5945. Xerox also showcased the multi-function WorkCentre 3655 with ConnectKey technology as well as the Arabic language interface as part of its focus on remote printing, especially with the growing number of mobile phones. Employees can scan the data and send them directly to e-mails, USBs or Cloud computing applications.
Haitham Abdo, General Manager of Xerox Egypt, said: “Xerox’s surprise this year in Cairo ICT is unique, the Arabic user interface launch comes to confirm Xerox’s support the development of the IT sector in Egypt. Xerox places a great deal of importance on its presence in Egypt and the Middle East and the Arabic user interface feature is an innovation that comes naturally as part of our commitment to our customers especially ones who work in the governmental and SMEs sectors.”
