Xerox has partnered with Rochester Software Associates (RSA) to provide a scan-to-print shop solution that allows teachers and staff of the Blue Valley School District in Kansas to spend less time preparing materials in their buildings.
Tests, reading packets and study worksheets used to be transferred through inter-office mail to the print center to be copied, a process that could take up to 4 days to be completed; only about 25% of the district’s black-and-white digital print volume was coming from the print center.
The new solution—Xerox Extensible Interfact Platform-enabled MFPs along with QDirect.SCAN™ software and a WebCRD™ portal from RSA—allows hard copy documents such as tests and worksheets to be scanned in directly at Xerox MFPs located in all Blue Valley schools, and routed to the print center. This has resulted in turnaround times being cut in half, while the number of orders to the district’s print center has been doubled.
Jason Gillam, assistant director of business operations of the Blue Valley School District, says "this unique system has increased the volume of the print center without having to take on new staff, and our staff now has more time to focus on teaching and learning."
