Lexmark SmartSolutions Automate Office Tasks

More than just printers: Lexmark SmartSolutions automate office tasks

SmartSolutions enhance Lexmark AIOs, allowing small businesses to customize solutions and increase their productivity

Lexmark has announced the availability of Lexmark SmartSolutions on its all-in-one business inkjet - Platinum Pro905. This will provide a superior alternative for small businesses looking to optimize electronic processes, saving them the hassle of choosing between low-cost, out-of-the-box offerings and expensive customized solutions.

Lexmark SmartSolutions help businesses automate multi-step processes that were previously performed step by step, increasing the efficiency of document-based operations. These additional applications are available for free download at https://smartsolutions.lexmark.com. This Lexmark online community also presents detailed information about the individual SmartSolutions, explaining their benefits and which processes they can automate.

“Using these SmartSolutions is so simple and intuitive that it requires no IT expertise at all,” said Paul Rooke, Lexmark executive vice president and president of its Imaging Solutions Division. “Each user can make their business more efficient on the touchscreen in the form of a quick menu and then perform frequently recurring tasks in as little as one step, saving the user valuable time.”

Examples of Lexmark SmartSolutions in action include:

Scan to Email

Previously, with inkjets and low-end laser printers, users needed a PC in order to email a document that had been scanned. Users would scan the document to the PC's email application, ensure the document was received from the printer to the email inbox and then, finally, send the document out to the intended recipients.

SmartSolution simplifies the entire process with Scan to Email, a feature that removes the need for a PC. This feature enables a user to send a scanned document as an email attachment straight from the printer itself, which is similar to that found on high-end MFPs. From the one-touch icons on the touch screen panel, user can create a recipient list easily for any document that needs to be sent.

Scan to Folder

When installing SmartSolution Scan to Folder, users can predetermine the folder within the directory which documents will be scanned to. The folder can be named easily using the icon on the touch screen. With just a single touch, users can scan a document and have it saved immediately to the target folder. This is particularly convenient and saves time when a user has to scan and archive large amounts of different types of documents into different network folders.

ID Card Copy

With the pre-installed ID Card copy function, both sides of an ID card can be copied swiftly onto the same side of a sheet of paper. Users no longer need to re-adjust the position of the card on the platen and feed in the same piece of paper to copy the other side of the card. This also takes away the time needed for users to ensure they are feeding the piece of paper in the right direction, and brings productivity to a higher level.

At work, users often use their mobile phones to take photos at corporate events, exhibitions or site surveys. With SmartSolution LexPrint, which is downloadable from the iTunes store, iPhone users can instantly print the photos they take wirelessly without having to first download them to a PC.

These are just some examples of the variety of SmartSolutions Lexmark offers to help users automate complex process steps or access information quickly and efficiently. Lexmark SmartSolutions can be installed for free on Platinum Pro905. Lexmark will continue to expand the range of its SmartSolutions offerings.
