Xerox says that the software suite enables partners to tap into recurring revenue streams and capitalize on strong profit margins through preferred partner pricing. The MPS Essentials Suite includes cloud-based solutions that are “easy for channel partners to deploy, providing more efficient service to their MPS clients.”

The app simplifies the scan/send workflow to reduce user frustration and speed up document delivery.
Furthermore featured are the ‘Firmware Connect App’which allows customers to automatically receive firmware updates to ensure ConnectKey devices are secure and optimally functional and the ‘Xerox Support Assistant App’ which gives customers access to the status of service and supply requests, reducing calls to partner help desks.
