Say goodbye to bottlenecks

Xerox is helping overcome delays and bottlenecks in everyday processes with the launch of a cloud-based software platform that gives 24/7, secure access to workflow automation and digitisation tools from any device (PC, tablet, smartphone, multifunction printer), when in the office, at home or in transit. Xerox Workflow Central enables users to transform printed and digital documents into the optimum format for sharing, editing and processing. Core capabilities include the ability to turn handwriting into text; to translate to and from over 40 languages; to convert PDF or image files into Microsoft Office formats; to redact sensitive information; to convert documents into audio files; to merge and combine files; and to summarise lengthy reports. Advanced subscriptions include additional functionality, such as the ability to create custom workflows, to route documents to cloud-hosted repositories and to encrypt and track emails and attachments.


PPD Bedside TV Healthcare Hospital Room

A bed with a view

PPDS is bringing personalised viewing to hospital patients in a new partnership with display mounting specialist Glamox. Supporting faster and more economical installs, the agreement enables PPDS to provide partners and healthcare customers with a complete TV and mounting solution comprising a 19in Philips Heartline Android TV and a Glamox Luxo Maximum self-balancing arm that enables patients to adjust TV position and angle for viewing comfort.



A healthy App-etite

With Steambox, there is no excuse not to eat warm, healthy and fresh meals wherever you are. The portable, rechargeable steamer can produce a nutritious meal in just 15 minutes, and heat three meals on a single charge. Just press a button or use the associated app to start a specific steaming programme. The first Steamboxes are due to be delivered in April, following two years of development and successful crowdfunding campaigns.


Simpler SASE

Aryaka’s new range of all-in-one SD-WAN and secure access service edge (SASE) solutions offer a non-disruptive way to accommodate the migration of workloads to the cloud and to meet the connectivity and security needs of a hybrid workforce. Based upon Aryaka’s FlexCore architecture, Aryaka’s new EZ and Pro lines for SMEs and mid-to-large enterprises respectively provide a simpler way to acquire managed SASE and SD-WAN offerings, with T-shirt size pricing models (a-la-carte pricing is also available), standardisation of the five most requested service tiers and a new silver support tier for customers with lower response time and support requirements.


ALE Connect

Cloud contact centre

Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise (ALE) has enhanced its contact centre offering with a hybrid, cloud-based Contact Centre as a Service (CCaaS) solution powered by Akio. Offering seamless omnichannel customer communications across voice and digital channels (email, live chat and social media), ALE Connect features a single unified interface for agents, multi-tasking to manage different interactions simultaneously and AI-based assistance for a better, faster customer experience. Its hybrid cloud architecture enables organisations to leverage their existing communication equipment.
