DocuWare CONNECT to Xerox allows your Xerox multifunction printer to scan and store documents into DocuWare - in a single step. You can add index terms, right from the multifunction printer, and access can be password protected.

The process is easy. At the multifunction printer, select the application from the touch screen. Depending on the security set up, the application may ask for a user ID and password. Authorised users see the appropriate store dialogs, and can enter index terms for the document. They either pick terms from the ‘select lists’ or enter them manually via the soft keyboard. Finally, they scan the document, and DocuWare CONNECT for Xerox stores it, along with the index terms, into the correct DocuWare file cabinet.


Why Choose Xerox?

DocuWare CONNECT to Xerox is based on the technology of DocuWare Web Client. An embedded Web browser runs on the Xerox MFP. This communicates via HTTP with the DocuWare CONNECT to Xerox module, an ASP.NET application that runs within Microsoft IIS (Internet Information Services).

To communicate with the DocuWare system, CONNECT to Xerox uses the DocuWare GAPI in¬terface (General Application Program¬ming Interface). The scanned documents are sent from the Xerox device via FTP (File Transfer Protocol) to an FTP server, where they are stored in a directory.

DocuWare accesses this directory on the FTP server via the file system, fetches the scanned files from there and stores the docu¬ments in the DocuWare file cabinet via GAPI. The index data for the scanned documents is transferred by CONNECT to Xerox directly to the GAPI interface.
