Software solutions vendor, LAW Compliance, is rolling out 600 Xerox WorkCentre 3210 multifunction devices (MFDs) to law firms across South Africa, in partnership with Bytes Document Solutions.
The move will see attorneys use LAW Compliance's Stordoc software to streamline documentation workflow between banks, and speed up their conveyancing and home loans processing.
Ryan Barlow, operations director at LAW Compliance, says compliance is of utmost importance for most financial institutions today, in order to adhere to the Financial Intelligence Centre Act (FICA).
“This is a cumbersome process which requires much paperwork and the correct certified documentation. LAW Compliance now provides law firms with an automated software and hardware solution to securely scan, upload and store their clients' certified documentation in a secure central repository, which can be instantly accessed by banks and financial institutions for easy processing,” Barlow says.
“By doing it this way, it takes much administrative pressure off financial institutions by providing them with correct and accurate paperwork, which ensures a speedy turnaround time, and eliminates paper waste and postage costs.”
Barlow says LAW Compliance looked at various MFDs in the market, and says that the Xerox WorkCentre 3210 offered the best value in terms of cost savings and features for employees to be productive, at an affordable price.
The WorkCentre 3210 is a four-in-one printer – print, scan, copy and fax – featuring print speeds of up to 24 pages per minute (ppm), print resolution of up to 1200 x 1200 dpi, and a 250-sheet paper drawer.
The WorkCentre 3220 is also a four-in-one device, with 1200 x 1200 dpi resolution and a 250-sheet drawer, but it offers print speeds up to 30 ppm, automatic duplexing, Postscript3 drivers and the fax-forward-to-e-mail feature.
“For years, Xerox has maintained its position as a leader in technology, services and solutions. What clinched the deal for us was Bytes Document Solutions' access to a vast network of service and support centres across the country, combined with a three year on-site warranty, to ensure that the machines are properly supported and maintained,” Barlow adds.
Peter Vieira, national channel manager: Xerox division at Bytes Document Solutions, says the partnership with LAW Compliance underscores the company's ongoing commitment to work closely with the channel.
“This is a textbook example of an organisation adding value in the channel. We are also in discussions to incorporate our Xerox EIP (Extensible Interface Platform) solutions into Law Compliance’s solutions. This allows the Xerox device to extensibly become the interface between the user and the software solution, without the need for a computer,” says Vieira.
“Our channel partners played a major role in securing the deal with LAW Compliance to ensure that we provide a silver service that is consistent across the country,” he concludes.
