Xerox Production Assessment Services review production print environments to achieve the most direct path to cost savings and efficiency. Assessments include capacity utilization, total cost of ownership, production value chain and service process maturity. Xerox Print Security Audit Service monitors a client's print policy to identify and resolve compliance issues. The offering includes consultative services using data collection tools and analytics. Xerox Print Server Management Service frees up an enterprise's IT resources by having Xerox oversee and consolidate print servers, print queues and drivers. Xerox Mobile Print Solution offers secure printing via the Xerox Mobile Print app. Users can print from their desktop, laptop, tablet, mobile devices and smartphones. Additional enhancements include: locating public printers using GPS and maps; integrated cloud printing with a customer's active directory; Secure Card Reader and Follow You Print solutions for a unified end user experience; and web page printing, media selection and support for large scale global deployment models. Xerox Content Management Services help enterprises automate, simplify and reduce paper in their work processes. Efficiencies are achieved through Xerox's workflow automation and document management tools, as well as consultative services. Xerox Ignite electronically grades exams and produces analytics allowing educators to customize learning based on the student's progression.
