4 modern printer functions you should be using

4 modern printer functions you should be using

While the world of the 21st century is constantly being pushed towards a fully digital workplace, in many situations there’s still no substitute for physical documents and imaging solutions. Keeping up to date with the most modern technology in the multifunction office device space is still crucial for a lot of Australian businesses, and it remains a vibrant industry. According to Gartner, IT spending in Australia is poised to hit $80 billion in 2016, while IBISWorld note that the printing industry itself is still worth $7 billion annually. Speaking to CIO, Research Vice President of Gartner Ken Weilerstein says many companies worldwide still rely on traditional methods of documentation each and every day, …

Security Tip: How to Secure your BYOD future

Security Tip: How to Secure your BYOD future

If you don’t already know, the Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) is thriving. Tech Pro Research’s study confirms the trend, saying 74 per cent of organisations are either already using, or planning to allow employees to bring their own devices into the office for business use. While this may be good news for companies and employees, translating to a boost in productivity as employees work on-the-go, it is an added burden to IT departments tasked with security. By letting employees use their own devices for work purposes, pertinent company data can be compromised. Fuji Xerox’s Working Folder is a simple, yet highly functional cloud document management solution that equips businesses with complete data …

How to Protect your Mobile Workspace

How to Protect your Mobile Workspace

As demand for remote working increases, SMEs should tighten access to cloud services through mobile integration and regulation of mobile devices. So how do you go about regulating mobile access? With a mobile print for business application. With the ubiquity of laptops, smartphones, and easy Wi-Fi access enabling employees to be location-restricted no longer, nearly 61% of them reportedly spend at least part of the time working remotely. In fact, the BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) workforce in the Asia-Pacific region is forecast to grow to a whopping AUD 87.68 billion by 2019. As the world progresses in the direction of a fully mobile workspace, the productivity and agility of workers has improved immensely thanks to the almost-constant level of …

Why BYOD fails and how to make your roll out a success

Why BYOD fails and how to make your roll out a success

Bring your own device (also commonly known as BYOD in the tech world) initiatives have seen quite a lot of success in the past few years. It’s essentially a way to bring down the costs of buying new technology, while also enabling people to work on devices they know how to use. Gartner calls the trend an alternative strategy, one that spans smartphones, tablets and PCs. When the strategy is put in place, staff and other users within an organisation (or school) can personally select the devices they want to use, and access applications and data that’s specific to the organisation, or school. It’s easy to see where such a strategy can go wrong. …

Considerations for the office of the future

Considerations for the office of the future

While technologies like video conferencing and initiatives like bring-your-own-device (BYOD) are helping to get employees out of the office and working from home, there’s still going to be a place for the office over the next few decades. Of course, the future office isn’t likely to look like the ones we have today for too long, especially with businesses taking new considerations into account. Remote working Allowing staff to work from home or another location doesn’t mean the end of the office, but it definitely requires thought. With fewer staff in the office on a regular basis, there’s an opportunity to decrease the number of desks and offer hot desking – where staff …

How Next Generation Managed Print Services Enables Digital Transformation

How Next Generation Managed Print Services Enables Digital Transformation

This is a post co-written by guest contributors Emma Morgan, Segment Marketing Manager and Jan Ergen, Presales Consultant at Fuji Xerox Australia. Traditionally Managed Print Services (MPS) has been regarded in the Banking and Finance Sector largely as an avenue to reduce cost. With Xerox research in the US indicating that for most organisations their documents are split roughly fifty-fifty between paper and digital, it is not surprising that there is huge opportunity for driving efficiency in this area. MPS can indeed achieve significant savings, as much as 30 per cent in some cases, much of which can of course be done by increasing the proportion of digital documentation within a business. However, …

Working towards a cloud future

Working towards a cloud future

Last month I attended the “Transitioning to Digital Recordkeeping” Conference along with records managers across Australian government departments which just happened to be in Canberra at the same location as FutureGov. One event concentrating on how to change the way government works, and how government and citizens can connect in a better more effective way, and the other working out how to keep a record of it all. The premise of the conference was all too familiar; too much information, not enough government policy, and emerging technologies. Records management in the cloud was the focus of the panel session in which I participated. Having listened to a couple of the presentations and subsequent …
