NORWALK, CT, Oct. 1 /CNW/ - Xerox Corporation (NYSE: XRX) will convene a
group of software vendors, systems integrators, resellers, and others to
discuss ways to build software applications that help businesses streamline
the management of information and improve productivity.
The second annual North American Xerox Alliance Partner Conference will
focus on the Xerox Extensible Interface Platform(TM) (EIP), a software
platform based on Web standards that allows independent software vendors and
developers to easily create workflow applications for Xerox office
multifunction products and to customize the system touch screens. Xerox has
received more than 1,500 requests for the EIP software developer kit since
making it available for free download in 2007.
"This gathering is about working together with our partners to fuel
technology-based solutions to problems," said Ursula Burns, Xerox president,
who will be keynoting the event. "Businesses are no longer looking at boxes as
stand-alone peripherals; they're expecting the technology to do more. And
whether it's software that enables intelligent routing, scanning to
repositories, or customized secure access to devices, that's what EIP offers
partners - more."
Taking place from Monday, Oct. 13 through Thursday, Oct. 16 in Savannah,
Ga., the conference agenda will offer attendees insight on how Xerox provides
software partners with global access to enterprise and small-to-mid-sized
businesses, as well as sales and marketing support. In addition, the event
will serve as an opportunity to interface directly with Xerox engineers and
provide feedback about EIP.
At the conference, Xerox will announce the "2007 Partner of the Year" for
the Platinum, Gold and Silver level partners. Xerox will also honor a
developer level partner for the "Most Innovative EIP Solution."
The conference is sponsored by Nuance, Equitrac, Notable Solutions, Inc;
X-Solutions, YSoft, EFI, ESP, Omtool Ltd., SafeCom and Visioneer, Inc.
