Xerox ConnectKey 1.5 Software Update

Mobility and cloud access are a growing part of the productivity needs for todays SMB professional users. To respond to this, Xerox added new apps, products, and features into its ConnectKey 1.5 software technology. Among the changes, Xerox ConnectKey 1.5 software works with four new multifunction printers (MFPs) – including the WorkCentre 3655 B&W and WorkCentre 6655 Color A4/letter MFPs and the WorkCentre 5945 B&W and WorkCentre 7970 Color A3 MFPs. The updated Extensible Interface Platform 3.0 enhances the capabilities of these MFPs with tools like WebKit browser support, allowing Xerox partners to program custom control panel user interfaces for their apps and increase device functionality.
