New Solid Ink Multifunction Printers
Xerox Corporation has launched the ColorQube 9300 Series of high-speed solid ink multifunction printers aimed at curbing color printing costs. Xerox says firms can cut color print costs in half with the Hybrid Color Pricing Plans available on the 9300 Series–paying only for the amount of color on a given page. The cartridge-free MFPs print and copy at speeds up to 55 pages per minute in color, 60 ppm in black and white, and scan as fast as 60 impressions per minute in color. Other benefits include consistent color prints, regardless of media type, and the ability to print from and scan to a memory stick or thumb drive via the USB port located on the side of the MFP. Plus, mobile users print securely from any email-enabled smartphone, tablet or laptop without downloading an application, loading software or searching for online printer information. Built-in security is included—image overwrite electronically “shreds” data on the MFP’s hard drive while 256-bit encryption protects information flowing through the device. Network authentication prohibits unauthorized access by validating user names and passwords. The 9300 Series is ENERGY STAR qualified and generates up to 90 percent less consumable and packaging waste than comparable laser devices.
One-Button Scanning for Document Management System
DocSolid and World Software Corporation have announced the integration of their products. Worldox Airmail2 allows users to file scanned documents directly into a matter workspace in their Worldox document management system. Airmail2 introduces the first universal, one-button, cloud-based scan capture solution.

It works with any MPF, digital copier or scanner that can scan to the network. Users place a postage stamp-size bar code on a document, scan it and receive it in either email or Worldox in seconds. Two standard modules are available: Airmail2 Me and Airmail2 Worldox. Airmail2 Me captures scans from any MPF or scanner and returns the scanned items to the user’s email. From there, users can drag and drop images into related folders. Filing attributes are automatically applied. Airmail2 Worldox takes the process to the next level by filing the documents directly into the Worldox matter workspace.

Tool for Archiving Social Media Activity
PageFreezer.com, a cloud solution for preservation of dynamic web content, now has capability for capturing and storing social media activity—including blogs and the comments within them, Twitter feeds, Facebook, LinkedIn recommendations, and so forth. This feature is aimed specifically at helping firms and individuals working in the financial industry comply with social media records retention policies and new regulatory requirements for record-keeping. A “perfect” archive needs to fill a tall order. Records must be kept in such a way that they can be reproduced quickly, and they must be preserved in whatever medium they were originally produced. Further, records must be kept for periods of up to seven years and they must bear proof of “data integrity and authenticity.” PageFreezer meets these requirements, even for social media content, by stamping each page with a digital timestamp and signature, then storing it in a complete and searchable format. PageFreezer operates as a stand-alone SaaS version of website and social media archiving technology.
