Xerox Corporation has created a website to encourage customers to play a part in the exploratory research that serves as a source for new products, applications and services.
Open Xerox is an online technology portal, providing instant access to the latest Xerox innovations and allowing anyone to test pilot technology and provide feedback directly to lab scientists and engineers.
“At Xerox we encourage change, push the limits of the unknown, and explore new approaches to innovation,” said Dan Smith, General Manager for Integrated Marketing, Xerox, Middle East and Africa.
“Collaboration with users across the globe brings fresh ideas, diverse opinions and expertise that enable game-changing innovations for our customers.”
Open Xerox was co-created by researchers at Xerox Research Centre Europe and Xerox Research Center Webster and also features projects developed at PARC, the Palo Alto Research Center. Users not only can try the applications but also register to access a wider range of technologies, run services and test technology integration in third-party applications.
“Open Xerox is a virtual research lab where anyone from customers and fellow technology experts to potential partners can participate in testing our technology,” said Dan Smith, General Manager for Integrated Marketing, Xerox, Middle East and Africa.
Some services also can be accessed direct from Xerox multifunction printers equipped with EIP, the Xerox Extensible Interface Platform. Right now the site offers more than 20 services, some of which require a log-in.
