“Customers are at the core of everything we do – from helping them create a sustainable business to setting them on the path ready for a digital workplace.

The ApeosPort-VII/DocuCentre-VII offers an enterprise quality product at a cost that is affordable for small to medium sized businesses. The device also offers zero IT infrastructure maintenance for users as all maintenance is managed in the cloud allowing businesses to be more cost efficient and spend less time requiring IT services. The device is user friendly and security has also been prioritised to ensure confidential documents are only read by those intended to receive them. The ApeosPort-VII/DocuCentre-VII also allows users to connect on demand wherever they are opening the possibility of accessing digital documents through the cloud and printing on the go.
Intuitive User Experience
The ApeosPort-VII/DocuCentre-VII device offers enhanced basic features and design for easy use. The 10.1 inch control panel can be tapped and swiped just like a smartphone with the improved intuitive user interface. The paper trays have an easy-to-operate retraction mechanism that allows them to be opened and closed quietly when replenishing paper. Lights and sounds from the printer alert users about job progress and confidential documents left behind to help prevent information leakages.
360° Data Security
To comply with new international standards such as GDPR, the ApeosPort-VII/DocuCentre-VII series offers enhanced security functions for both hardware and software with expansive network communications. Each multifunction printer can be connected to two disassociated networks, enabling the user to separate communications, delivering data security within the office.
Carefree Printer Management
The new ApeosPort-VII/DocuCentre-VII series incorporate a host of services that deliver key operating information such as pre-emptive alerts, usage data and required resources. These assist users mitigate downtime, maximise productivity and thus increase operating margin.

Document workflow that promotes the use of digital documents
Connectivity with the user’s current cloud platform
- Cloud Service Hub connects multifunction devices with cloud storage services from various vendors using a single interface. With the Cloud Service Hub, optical character recognition (OCR) performed when the user scans and stores a new document allows the user to search for files across several cloud storage services on the single interface.
- ApeosWare Management Suite 2 allows scanned documents to be saved to One Drive for Business.
Device and cost management
- Device Log Service is a cloud service that aggregates data about multifunction printer usage via the web. The enhanced features enable data aggregation of multifunction devices and to automatically import and utilise information on LDAP/ActiveDirectory users – especially beneficial for organisations.
