Most of us have used walk-up printers before. You need to make a quick copy, fax a document, or print off a few documents from your thumb drive.

When was the last time you used a self-serve printer and genuinely thought to yourself, “Wow, that was easy!”

If you’re like the vast majority of consumers, the answer is probably never.

Xerox has set out to change that with their revolutionary take on self-service document processing. The Xerox Instant Print Kiosk doesn’t just have a great spec sheet; it offers real-world users a genuinely satisfying experience.

Let’s take a look at why:

User-friendliness or ease of use is perhaps the most important feature a public-facing technology can have. Walk-up printers with complex or unclear options or messy user interfaces are quite literally going to cost the business who installed them money—and it’s not hard to see why.

A unit lacking in ease of use will require more employee intervention (i.e., staff will need to assist customers more often, rather than spending their time working on something else or assisting a different customer).

Customers will take longer to complete their tasks, causing a line to form or resulting in other customers having to wait longer before using the device—which they may not be apt to do a second time, instead preferring to go somewhere else for their document processing needs.

And finally, mistakes are more likely to be made with a non-intuitive device, leading to wasted resources (paper and toner, for example) as well as more frequently processed refunds.

Needless to say, ease of use is important.

And Xerox nailed it with the Instant Print Kiosk.

A 10.1” Interactive Touchscreen is Your Portal to Copy, Scan, Print, or Fax

The Xerox Instant Print Kiosk has a 10.1” interactive touchscreen. The software running on the device displays four easy, clearly defined options for the user: they can copy, scan, print, or fax.

Each of these options have more robust functionality—such as cloud access or automated stapling with the Office Finish LX option—but each step is presented in such a way that someone who has never used the unit before is able to complete their task. And, for the reasons we outlined above, that’s important for any business or organization with a self-serve printer.

How does the Xerox Instant Print Kiosk stack up against the competition in terms of raw technical power? Quite well, as it turns out…

This self-serve document processor from Xerox can output a speedy 55 pages per minute of black and white prints. This number only drops to 50 for color prints, which is a step above most of the competition on the market. Not only does the unit output prints incredibly fast, it can do quite a lot of them—it’s capable of stacking up to 2,000 sheets.

The print quality is also more than enough to please even the most demanding consumer, with a crisp 1200 x 2400 DPI.

Finally, it’s worth noting that the device is equipped with a 600 x 600 DPI scanner with a dual head, meaning that both sides of a document can be scanned rapidly.
