Included with Hardware
Forms and Favorites
Forms & Favorites allows users to instantly access required online forms from any Lexmark MFP to help simplify and streamline work processes. From the touch screen, your customers can navigate through form categories or search based on a form number, name or description. This saves time through on-demand retrieval and printing, with bookmarking capabilities. The app also provides security through device authentication methods, with the functionality for user personal identification numbers (PINs). Add or delete forms at any time. Define and organize bookmarks as shortcuts in hierarchical folders.
The Multi Send App lets users scan a paper document once and route the digital image file to multiple destinations simultaneously. With the tap of a button, your customers can send scanned documents to email addresses, network folders, FTP sites, fax machines, electronic document archives or other secure network locations, and a delivery confirmation produced. Capture and routing functionalities include automatic archiving, profile (user) management, and custom confirmation distribution.
The Change Language App allows you to easily change the display language used on the operator panel menus from the home screen.
MyShortcuts lets MFP users create personalized shortcuts for frequent copy, fax and email tasks. Users name shortcuts and choose the icon used. This app saves a user’s document settings, email addresses and phone numbers so they don't have to be re-entered. It saves time and offers flexible personalization options for your customers. It’s ideal for mono only, coping, group faxing, emailing list and any other repetitive tasks.
Card Copy allows users to scan each side of ID cards and either print both sides on one side of a single sheet of paper or email the scan to an email address.
Web Services Scan
Web Services Scan lets a user scan images to a Windows 7 PC. The PC must be networked and have Web Services enabled in order to accept scans from the Lexmark MFP.
Bar Code Discovery
Bar Code Discovery is an embedded MFP app that creates templates to enable bar code reading in Scan to Network Premium. This software quickly locates the bar code and accelerates the bar code reading process. Administrator can specify the location and type of bar codes that users will frequently scan. Other applications can then access these templates to reduce the amount of time it takes to scan and identify bar codes on a given printer.
Scan to Network Premium
Your customers can convert hardcopy files to optimized softcopies efficiently with Lexmark’s Scan to Network. Users can add pages, remove image defects and preview files that are then automatically routed to a shared network folder and are immediately available to anyone with network access. Your customers can keep their softcopy documents organized with up to 30 unique folder destinations.
ADF Card Copy
Automatic Document Feeder Card Copy copies ID card or credit card information by capturing an image of each side then enlarging and assembling them into a single page.
Scan to SharePoint
Scan to SharePoint makes it easy to scan documents directly from a Lexmark MFP into Microsoft SharePoint® 2007 and 2010 enterprise content management software. With real-time scanning, you ensure each document is sent to its proper location. Features include indexing that permits users to manually enter information for both required and optional fields at the MFP using the touch screen. A confirmation screen displays scanned file names when image has been inserted into the CMS. Printing options enable users to select from multiple file types.
