In the current work landscape, employees need access to cloud-hosted solutions and data, demanding printers that can support advanced functionalities. All-in-one or multi-function printers (MFPs) integrated with tools like Xerox® Workflow Central can significantly enhance productivity.

Outdated Processes Holding You Back:

Consider printers that go beyond the basics and integrate powerful process tools. Xerox® Workflow Central automates routine tasks, offering features like converting static documents to editable ones, automating key processes, securing information through redaction, and much more. These cloud-based solutions eliminate information silos and streamline processes for increased efficiency.

Inadequate Security Measures:

section 179

In the world of business, every dollar counts, and one powerful tool at your disposal for maximizing your financial benefits is Section 179. This provision allows you to significantly reduce your taxable income by deducting the full purchase price of qualifying equipment. In 2023, the Section 179 deduction limit is set at $1,160,000, with a cap on equipment purchases at $2,890,000. There is also an 80% Bonus Depreciation, which applies to both new and previously owned equipment as long as it’s “new to you.” 

The Power of Depreciation

2023 features an 80% Bonus Depreciation. This provision allows businesses to benefit from substantial depreciation on their equipment investments. The beauty of it is that you can apply this bonus to not just new equipment but also to previously owned items, as long as they are new to your business. The catch? You need to purchase and put the equipment into service by midnight on December 31, 2023. The clock is ticking, and the tax savings potential is significant. 

Harnessing the Power of Leasing with Section 179

Leasing equipment and software while keeping Section 179 in mind is a winning financial strategy. It offers multiple advantages for your business. You can deduct the full cost of the leased equipment from your taxable income without having to pay the full amount upfront. The savings in taxes could even surpass the lease payments, making Section 179 a tax deduction that genuinely improves your bottom line.

While not all lease types qualify for Section 179, a seasoned expert can help you navigate the complexities and ensure you’re making the most of this opportunity.

Software Matters Too

In the realm of software, there’s a vital distinction to keep in mind. Software subscriptions don’t qualify for Section 179. However, when you invest in software tools like Printerpoint and PaperCut, you can enjoy the benefits of tax deductions while enhancing your business operations. It’s a double win – improving your efficiency and saving on taxes.

Seize the Opportunity Today

In conclusion, Section 179 in 2023 offers an incredible opportunity for businesses to maximize their write-offs and enhance their bottom line. Whether you’re considering purchasing or leasing equipment, this tax provision can boost your cash flow and profits.

Don’t let the clock run out; the December 31, 2023 deadline is fast approaching. To learn more about how you can take full advantage of Section 179 and secure a more financially secure future for your business, call Repro Products today at 770-434-3050.

Document security is a crucial aspect for any organization that handles sensitive information. From its inception to disposal, documents must be safeguarded to prevent unauthorized access, tampering or loss of information. This involves securing the document capture, store, and delivery processes in a print environment.

Here are some best practices to ensure document security:

Secure data capture: Companies must ensure that the print devices use secure print protocols and encrypted transmission channels for scanning documents. Communication devices should be configured with TLS 1.2 or higher, HTTPS and WPA2 for wireless security. Unsecured or unused wireless communication (Wi-Fi, NFC, Bluetooth) should be disabled on the print devices. Whitelisting the scan destinations ensures that sensitive documents can be scanned to only specific scan destinations.

Document Encryption: It is essential to ensure that business documents are encrypted, and password protected when they are stored or shared, so in case a document falls into the wrong hands, they are not able to open the documents. Adding security stamps to stored documents helps organizations determine the source of the documents and avoid any tampering.

Secure document delivery: Organizations must ensure that their document delivery process is fully secure to avoid eavesdropping and man-in-the-middle attacks. Implementing secure print release solutions for their printer fleet ensures that confidential documents are held in a secure print queue until the owner of the print job authenticates and releases the print job at the printer. Secure document exchange ensures that only the intended recipient can access the file.

Document copy protection & tracking: Certain document types should never be copied or scanned. Print devices must provide a mechanism to protect such documents from copy, print or scan. Hardcopy security features within multifunction devices protect classified documents from illegal copies being made.

In conclusion, ensuring document security is critical for any organization that handles sensitive information. Companies must take appropriate measures to secure their document capture, store, and delivery processes in a print environment. Repro Products’ Toshiba line of products provides a range of solutions that can help organizations improve their document security practices.

Adaptive reuse is a process that involves repurposing an existing building for a use different from its original design. This process offers many benefits from a sustainability perspective. Here are some key points to consider:

    • Adaptive reuse minimizes the manufacturing of new materials, reducing waste and conserving resources.
    • Local governments often incentivize re-use and repurposing of old buildings, providing a boost to the local economy.
    • The data center industry has supported reuse of buildings, adapting otherwise unusable, expansive, abandoned land and structures like malls, prisons, and power plants.
    • Architects and engineers should design buildings with adaptation in mind, planning for disassembly and reuse to reduce waste and minimize energy consumption down the line.
    • The shift towards a circular economy is critical for a more sustainable future, and adapting old structures for current needs, leaning into efficiency gains, and recycling are important steps in this direction.

    One of the most practical tools in adaptive reuse (retrofitting of existing structures for new purposes) is 3D laser scanning. Here are some benefits of 3D laser scanning over conventional measurement methods:

      • No longer reliant on traditional measuring techniques that can be time-consuming, prone to errors, and may have physical and airborne hazards.
      • Delivery of an easy-to-navigate virtual building for the developers/owners that can be used to better communicate direction to design and construction members. The model is also an effective sales tool for potential tenants to explore the building space and explore opportunities for personalization or repurposing
      • Engineers and designers are provided with the ability to show floorplans or section views of any part of the building in seconds.
      • Decreased time and personnel requirements combined with increased safety
      • Ability to scan otherwise inaccessible or difficult to access areas.
      • Enables teams to understand the building better and to design at a building level, not a floor level.
      • Facilitates visualization, analysis, and modeling of continuous load-bearing structures.
      • Offers a cost-effective method of documenting buildings by capturing rich, 3D data that can be used directly in Building Information Modeling (BIM) software as well as downstream applications.

Xerox has once again been recognized as one of the most sustainable corporations in the world, marking its third consecutive year on the Global 100 list. The Global 100 list is a yearly ranking of how well big companies are doing at sustainability. It’s put together by a group called Corporate Knights, experts who look at nearly 7000 companies, and use a strict method to figure out which ones are doing the best job.

As sustainability becomes increasingly important to consumers, investors, and stakeholders, this achievement highlights Xerox’s continued dedication to preservation, innovation and social responsibility.

Corporate Knights evaluated Xerox based on various criteria, including clean revenue from products, waste reduction, carbon use, and energy intensity. Xerox’s recognition is a testament to its commitment to developing innovative and eco-friendly printing solutions that reduce waste, energy consumption, and carbon emissions while maintaining exceptional quality.

Xerox has been a leader in printing technology for years, and its commitment to sustainability is reflected in its products and operations.

One of the greatest examples is their multifunction systems which greatly reduce amount of energy required to provide customers with copy, print, fax, and scan capabilities by combining the functions into one machine.

Along with these offerings, Xerox has set ambitious goals to achieve net-zero emissions by 2040, cementing its position at the forefront of sustainability.

Xerox Corporation Wins Buyers Lab 2021 Software Line of the Year Award, Ranked Best Overall in Keypoint Intelligence Solutions Study

Repro Products was not involved in the creation of this content. Original article can be found here.

FAIRFIELD, N.J., Nov. 19, 2020 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ — Keypoint Intelligence, the world’s leading independent evaluator of document imaging software, hardware, and services, today announced that Xerox Corporation has won the coveted Buyers Lab (BLI) 2021 Document Imaging Software Line of the Year Award. Given once a year, this award recognizes the vendor that offers the most complete software portfolio across the range of document imaging solutions categories that the company covers on its bliQ subscription service.

To determine the Software Line of the Year Award recipient, Keypoint Intelligence’s experienced analysts consider the imaging software each leading OEM officially sells and supports via its direct and independent sales channels. The vendor’s own products and those from partner ISVs are taken into account, and the portfolio is judged on both the breadth and depth of the offerings. For the breadth aspect, analysts consider how complete each vendor’s line is across the categories of software Keypoint Intelligence covers in bliQ Solutions Center: MFP Apps & Connectors, Capture & Workflow, Document Management/ECM, Fleet Management & MPS Tools, Output Management, and others such as security, OCR, fax servers, and vertical-market solutions. Another consideration is the variety of offerings in each of those categories to suit the needs of different size organizations, from small businesses to global enterprises. Judgment on the quality of the solutions is based on Keypoint Intelligence’s hands-on evaluations, which look at ease of use, feature set, value, and other attributes.

The analysis showed that Xerox has the strongest lineup overall in three of the six categories studied: MFP Apps & Connectors, Capture & Workflow, and Fleet Management & MPS Tools. In MFP Apps & Connectors, Xerox boasts an unrivaled catalog of approximately 125 apps to extend the functionality of Xerox ConnectKey VersaLink and AltaLink MFPs, plus many more private apps that have been built by Xerox partners for their customers that are not reflected in that tally. In Capture & Workflow, the Xerox Workflow Automation Solution family stood out, with more than 40 specialized applications for needs ranging from Recruiting and HR Onboarding to Loan Application Processing to Student Billing and Advising. The company’s strong MPS program is underpinned by a range of solutions and services (under the company’s Intelligent Workplace Services umbrella) to help partners with managed print and managed document services engagements. And the company’s growing focus on verticals continues, with solutions for the education, legal, healthcare, and retail markets.

“Now more than ever, document imaging vendors need to offer software solutions that support information access, provide seamless collaboration, deliver workflow productivity, and promote cost efficiency—more likely than not with a workforce that is split between the home and office,” said Jamie Bsales, Director of Smart Workplace & Security Analysis at Keypoint Intelligence. “Xerox has demonstrated its ability to address this challenge with a wide-ranging lineup of apps, software, and services to help customers not just navigate this ‘new normal’ but actually use it to their advantage, too.”


For almost 60 years, clients in the digital imaging industry have relied on Keypoint Intelligence for independent hands-on testing, lab data, and extensive market research to drive their product and sales success. Keypoint Intelligence has been recognized as the industry’s most trusted resource for unbiased information, analysis, and awards due to decades of analyst experience. Customers have harnessed this mission-critical knowledge for strategic decision-making, daily sales enablement, and operational excellence—improving business goals and increasing bottom lines. With a central focus on clients, Keypoint Intelligence continues to evolve as the industry changes by expanding offerings and updating methods, while intimately understanding and serving manufacturers’, channels’, and their customers’ transformation in the digital printing and imaging sector.


Line of the Year Awards salute the companies that provide a broad range of hardware or software and whose products consistently performed above average throughout testing. Much consideration is also made by Keypoint Intelligence analysts and technicians in areas such as ease of use, features, and value, across an entire portfolio for that product area, with the end result being the most prestigious Buyers Lab Awards offered.

Repro Products, Inc. (RPI), your Autodesk software partner and 3D laser scanning provider, also offers UAS (drone) pilot services.  Dave Young, one of our Autodesk-authorized Application Engineers, is a certified Pilot in Command having passed the FAA Part 107 Aeronautical Knowledge Test and receiving his drone license in 2020, 30 years after receiving his Private Pilot’s license.  Dave has worked at Repro Products for over 14 years and was previously employed as a Survey Crew Chief, CAD Manager and IT Manager.   His knowledge of Civil Engineering provides an additional layer of expertise to his scans.

As Pilot in Command, Dave oversees and is directly responsible for the safe operation of the drone and any additional crewmembers, such as a visual observer.  The physical roles vary depending on the nature of the flight.  In some instances, the Pilot in Command may be the only person involved, while for others there may be separate operators for the drone and the on-board camera.  For larger sites, a visual observer may be employed to maintain visual line-of-site while the drone operator remains in a fixed location, but not able to maintain the visual line of site.

Use of Drones in the AEC Industry

Given their versatility, the application of drones in the AEC industry can span all phases of a project, from preliminary design through construction, and even marketing.  Rather than relying on manpower to reach potentially unsafe or challenging terrain, you can choose a drone to capture data.  For example, instead of sending a worker into an unsafe environment to photograph and document information, we are now able to fly a drone on-location and obtain the same information with reduced cost as well as reduced risk of injury.  This imagery can also be quickly delivered to team members without the added cost of having the entire team on-site and separated from other important tasks.

Drones are also being utilized for digital/laser mapping and modeling.  Projects which would typically take months to complete are now being accomplished in minutes using drones.  Drones provide a higher level of accuracy to the mapping and modeling process, which eliminates expensive mistakes.  While not as accurate as a terrestrial based laser scanner, drone imagery can be used to generate 3D point clouds which may then be combined with terrestrially obtained data to create point clouds which include inaccessible areas such as a roofs.

Throughout the construction phase of a project, drones are being employed to inspect, monitor and document the construction process.  Drones are also used to measure volumes for landfills and open mining operations.  A drone can capture in hours what it would take a surveyor days to accomplish.  Many companies in the AEC industry are making use of drones-as-a-service:  hiring a provider like Repro Products to conduct a drone flight rather than investing thousands of dollars in a drone and a qualified, licensed operator (Pilot in Command).  Among the applications for drones are:

  • Aerial and orthographic photos of large sites
  • Generation of mesh models and 3D point clouds of buildings
  • Building, bridge and pipeline inspection (not including power transmission lines)
  • Raw video footage for promotional videos

Would you like to learn more about how drone services can save time, lower costs and unlock information about your job site?  Contact us at 678-385-2185 or by email at

“ConnectKey technology transforms the AltaLink C8100/B8100 into the digital workplace assistant that modern businesses need to speed their digital transformations,” says Tracey Koziol, senior vice president of Global Offerings, Xerox. “The tablet-like user interface allows for easy, familiar interaction or the user can choose to print from their mobile devices. These workplace assistants bridge the physical and digital world with innovative apps like converting the most challenging hand-writing into editable text documents, auto-redacting documents for private information and even creating audio files from text.”

According to Quorcirca, a Smart MFP is a key enabler for digital transformation, providing access to services and systems beyond digitization and into more complex business process and workflow automation.1

“The most mature smart MFP platform is Xerox ConnectKey,” says Louella Fernandes, director, Quocirca. “Xerox ConnectKey-enabled MFPs support a range of cloud and mobile digital workflows, boosted by a broad ecosystem of Xerox and third party-developed apps. The Xerox App Gallery continues to only grow stronger with more apps and widening developer support.

Additionally, a more flexible workforce brings with it heightened security concerns. Xerox partners with leading cyber security experts such as McAfee and Cisco to give AltaLink comprehensive built-in security that protect both device and network. Integration with industry leading security solutions like Security Information and Event Management solutions from McAfee, LogRhythm and Splunk simplifies reporting and management of security events.

For the past two years Keypoint – BLI has named Xerox Workplace Suite and ConnectKey Apps the Document Imaging Software Line of the Year Award and Outstanding Job Management & Mobile Print Solution.

The AltaLink C8100/B8100 are available immediately in the Americas and the AltaLink B8100 is available now in EMEA. The C8100 will be available in EMEA in September 2020.

Recent Xerox Future of Work Survey shows 58% of respondents plan changes to remote working policy

NORWALK, Conn. Xerox has announced the launch of its Team Availability App, a quick-to-deploy, real-time solution for organizations that need to understand employee availability and location. Knowing where and whether employees are working is critical to managing flexible work environments, where the percentage of employees sharing time between home and work locations grows.

Organizations are actively supporting and investing in technology solutions for a hybrid workforce. A recent global business survey commissioned by Xerox shows 58% of respondents plan to change their work from home policy within the next year. This new acceptance of a hybrid workforce has also revealed technology gaps, with companies increasing investment in remote technology resources (55%) or a hybrid of remote and in-office resources (40%).

“Managing a distributed workforce during a continued pandemic presents unique challenges no organization has experienced before,” said Joanne Collins Smee, executive vice president and chief commercial, SMB and channels officer, Xerox. “Organizations need to know who is available and where so they can make better decisions when allocating resources and work. This tool provides real-time knowledge to managers with distributed employee populations.”

Unlike other attendance management tools, which need to plug into IT infrastructure and take weeks to implement, the Team Availability App is ready in just hours. Once populated, the app provides authorized users with customizable and privacy-protected data for strategic decision making. Xerox is rolling out the app across the company to support its Path Forward plans to manage a phased approach to returning to the workplace safely. Xerox is leveraging the app with its own employee population to conduct daily health checks for exposure related to COVID-19. Tracking of this activity allows for a safe and phased return to the workplace.

The U.K.’s prestigious Imperial NHS Trust was the first organization to pilot the Xerox Team Availability App to access the status of essential workers across the Trust and its newly assigned locations at the height of the pandemic.

“It’s important for a healthcare provider to know which caregivers are available when to support patients, and that’s even more critical in a pandemic,” said Linda Watts, joint clinical systems program manager, Imperial NHS Trust & Chelsea & Westminster NHS Foundation Trust, head of health records, Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust. “The Xerox Team Availability App was deployed at lightning speed, and we got updates from staff on their availability in real-time. As a result, we could always make sure our patients were covered.”

The Xerox Team Availability App is a GDPR-compliant SaaS offering with a subscription-based model that allows customers to sign up for as long as required. It’s available now on the App Store and Google Play Store.

There’s a time of year that CAD geeks (like me) look forward to with great excitement, but network and infrastructure administrators (also, like me) dread. It happens every spring when the good folks at Autodesk release the new versions of their software. My CAD geek’s excitement over new toys is usually tempered a little bit by trepidation over the trials associated with upgrades, migrations and update training. This year, however, Vault 2021 has my inner Administrator just as excited.

Obviously, Autodesk always prioritizes productivity enhancements and this year is no different. This new and enhanced functionality can best be summarized in three areas:

1) Productivity enhancements for CAD users.
2) Something they are calling Smart Duplicate Reduction, and.. Wait for it…
3) More and better tools for Administrators

Enhancements for CAD Users
Now, for all of you Inventor users, Vault 2021 supports the new interoperability between Inventor and Revit. Beginning in Inventor 2021, AnyCAD allows Inventor users to reference their Revit models into Inventor assemblies. As a result, Inventor users can design and arrange parts and assemblies in the context of an architectural model.

That architectural model reference updates in the assembly to reflect ongoing changes to the Revit model. That’s big, not only for the obvious modeling advantages, but because most Inventor users don’t have access to Revit.

Most users access Inventor via the Product Design & Manufacturing Collection. Unfortunately, the PD&M Collection does not include Revit, severely limiting what its subscribers can do with Revit files. I am very excited to further explore all the potential workflows enabled by this interoperability, especially with my Factory Design Utilities users.

Vault has long supported storing Revit data inside a vault. However, Revit users, even those with Vault access, are often prone to using one of Revit’s other collaboration options such as hosting those models on a network share or on BIM 360. Vault 2021 can manage those AnyCAD references even if the data resides outside a vault on a network share or BIM 360. In those scenarios, the Revit data is not duplicated in Vault. Vault simply manages the reference to the data in its original location. A user opening an Inventor assembly with an AnyCAD Revit reference will retrieve that data from its original source.

Vault 2021 has a new system property called “Has Parent Relationship”. This property will allow users to identify, filter by, or search for files that don’t have referencing files. This allows users to determine if, for example, a part during the ongoing process of design was replaced in – or abandoned by – an assembly. Now the user can potentially purge or avoid releasing parts not actually used in the final design.

I’m including these next feature enhancements with the ones that most benefit CAD users, but Administrators will appreciate them also.

In Vault 2021, Copy Design Rule Sets are now stored on the server instead of each user’s local workstation. That means that new rules and modifications to existing rules immediately become available to all of the users. No need to manually propagate them across all user’s workstations. I know a few Administrators who will want to upgrade based on that feature alone.

The Job Queue can now optionally show more than 1000 jobs, up to 100,000.

ECO email template customization is now far more capable as you can include new links to files and items.

You can include ECO properties in the subject as well as the body.

And, like the Copy Design Rule Sets, the template is stored on the server.

In previous versions of Vault, Navisworks files had to be viewed in the native application, requiring that Navisworks be installed – potentially consuming a license on workstations where it isn’t otherwise in use. Vault 2021 generates a visualization attachment for Navisworks files so they can be viewed in the preview window and can participate in Shared Views.

Smart Duplicate Reduction
At the core of this concept is a feature that was introduced in Vault 2020.2 called Duplicate Search which allows Vault to intelligently index the geometry of Inventor models. That index can be used in lots of interesting ways. Perhaps the most obvious is that it gives users the option of comparing their model to what is already in vault prior to checking it in.

The theory being, this should promote the re-use of existing models and reduce the time and costs associated with producing the same physical part over and over. Fewer redundant part numbers, less time re-creating drawings, fewer opportunities to introduce errors… the list of potential benefits goes on and on.

Further, this information is aggregated and exposed to Managers in the form of a Duplicates dashboard so they can better understand their environments.

Tools for Administrators
If you have made it this far, congratulations, data management can be a pretty dry and boring topic. Prepare yourselves, the remaining enhancements are geared directly at Vault 2021 Administrators and as such, may be of minimal interest to a typical user.

In previous versions of Vault, any user who had Read rights could also download a file. Once a “clever” user has a local copy of the file, they could potentially modify or distribute it. Vault 2021 splits the download permission out as its own separate right. Now those “clever” users can be grated Read permissions while denied Download rights.

This Download permission can be applied to roles, objects and lifecycle states.

In Vault 2021, the Audit Logs have been enhanced to provide more relevant information about specific user actions like Get, Open, Pack & Go, and more.

Now, instead of editing a configuration file, the logs can be enabled and configured using the UI.

Most Vault administrators have multiple roles within their respective organizations. As a result, it is common for them to have at least two sets of Vault credentials, one for administrative tasks, and another for their day job.

Switching between these roles often involves a lot of logging in and out over the course of a workday. Alternately, they can maintain multiple Vault application sessions open at once, each with a different set of credentials. Regardless of which method used, it is very easy to “forget who you are” and attempt a task with the wrong credentials.

Vault 2021 makes it easy to tell if you are logged in with administrative rights by altering the color of the status bar.

Since its inception, Vault has required a specific named MS SQL Server instance. It always had to be called AutodeskVault. This was problematic for a number of reasons. Many larger organizations have rules and regulations concerning SQL instance names and prefer that those names not be predictable for security reasons. It also caused issues if you wanted the same SQL server to host instances for two or more Vault servers. The list goes on…

Now, in Vault 2021, an instance name other than AutodeskVault can be specified.

Administrators of very large vaults will appreciate a new change to the way purge works. Previously, If existing file versions were protected from purge by their lifecycle state, they will always be protected. Even if there are changes to that lifecycle control such that the file versions would no longer be protected from purge. That change would only apply to new file versions added to the vault subsequent to that change in the lifecycle control. Now administrators can optionally purge legacy file versions after changes to the lifecycle control.

It somehow seems appropriate that I saved enhancements to Backup and Restore for last. Few would argue against making backups as often as possible. The period between backups represents potentially unrecoverable work should some outage occur requiring the server to be restored. However, for administrators of very large vaults, some balance must be struck between the need for fault tolerance and the edict of minimizing downtime for backup and restore operations.

For Vault 2021, the file store validation (one of the more time-consuming tasks associated with Backup and Restore operations) has been optimized for better performance. There has also been an option added to Restore operations for a “Quick” file store validation.

As you can see, there is a lot here for a typical user to like. And I think Administrators will like it, too!

Recognizing the need to change with our customers and technology, through the years we added products and services to align with advancements that affected our design and construction clients:

  • Our experience as a blue printer provided us with a unique perspective on engineering, architectural and construction industries and facilitated our move from selling drafting angles and tables into selling and supporting Autodesk Software. We have now been an Autodesk reseller for over 25 years and are a Gold Partner and Autodesk Authorized Training Center.
  • Although we still do a lot printing for our clients, our print shop’s production services grew to incorporate digital services including managing plan rooms, metadata entry and data mapping.

In the last decade there was another shift — a larger demand for half-size prints. Although printed on 11×17” paper, a half-size print requires more expertise from a printer than producing a regular office document. Ten years ago, we expanded our decades-long affiliation with Xerox and became the designated metro Atlanta Xerox Agency providing multifunction and production devices that support not only our architectural and construction customers’ drawings but also the office staff and marketing teams (and production printers) of a wide variety of businesses throughout metro Atlanta.

One division of our business works diligently with our clients helping them make better BIM (Building Information Modeling) models. The other part still prints 2D plans. As the two worlds become closer and closer in technology, we changed from meeting in architects’ and engineers’ offices to engaging with our construction clients on their job sites. The experience of being in the field with our clients, working with them on projects they are trying to win and witnessing the end results of jobs they designed and built, we realized there were still some important solutions we needed to provide.

One large hole to fill was accurate building documentation. Our clients need it to bid a project, plan it effectively, ensure it is being built correctly and to provide a more complete deliverable to their clients. Everyone knows that as-built drawings are a myth. And even with BIM-enabled construction sites, the need to ensure what is being built as it is being built is important.

We knew that 3D laser scanning was the answer to getting this vital documentation. We provide 3D laser scanning services across the U.S. for business ranging from architectural firms to general contractors to manufacturing plants.

Just possessing accurate data is not enough, though. We knew we had to own the proper data capture and use workflow. Receiving data that is approachable and usable is vital to our clients’ success. For our Autodesk software users, we train on how to actually use the data in the software. Our non-design clients receive an accurate 3D image file that lets them move around, see and measure virtually but with real, accurate data.

We invite you to join our journey as we venture into the next 41 years, evolving our offerings to meet the next technological advancements.

When millions of workers started working from home recently, few knew what to expect and as a result many are struggling. We are all coming to terms with the normal challenges like managing schedules, balancing personal life over professional and that blurred line between work hours and home. Some challenges you can attack head-on with Xerox Multifunctional Printers, software portfolio and innovative apps. Yet when it comes to work (wherever that happens) work-at-home champions expect things to remain simple. You want to connect and interact with their business resources easily, minus any hassle or long conversations with the IT department.

In the graphic below, we have identified some challenges that the new home workers (perhaps you yourself) can find themselves having to deal with. Do any look familiar?

Docushare Home Work Graphic

Is There a Solution?

Yes. Xerox is leading the way in providing unique solutions to give huge productivity gains for the home worker and solving these pain points.

The First Step: Selecting the Ideal Multifunction Device as your Home Assistant

Homeworkers can be split into two broad categories: users with simple print-centric needs that create, share via email and print documents, and a second category of users that need to process documents as part of their job (like an insurance claim clerk, lawyers or real estate professionals). Workers who process documents for their job need to mimic the operations available at their office, follow company procedures, approve or review documents and pass them on to others. These workers need remote access from their device to their office systems. (For example, sign and approve an insurance claim and move that document to the finance department for payment to the client to complete their work). These complex tasks greatly benefit from the availability of apps that ConnectKey-enabled devices support in order to work as efficiently from home as from their office.

On the other hand, general workers who create documents (like finance and marketing) often share with others in the company. They need to be able to print, copy and scan their documents, and then email them to whoever needs them. These easier tasks do not need ConnectKey apps, but do need reliable devices that offer them the functionality they need. The WorkCentre 6515 color multifunction printer, WorkCentre 3345 mono multifunction printer and B215 multifunction printer offer small, easy to use devices capable of any task the average user needs to perform.

All ConnectKey enabled devices offer the same, personalized, simple-to-use front panel, and offer capabilities beyond print with connection to the app gallery. The Versalink C405 color multifunctional printer and Versalink B405 multifunctional printer are small enough to use within the home without losing any of the advanced functionality and security attributes that offices require.

With access to the app gallery, Xerox offers a multitude of workflow scanning solutions and productivity apps at the device’s front panel. Scan into cloud repositories, scan into text searchable formats, even translate documents all at the device.

All Xerox devices are simple-to-install on networks with Install Wizards to configure wi-fi, email server settings etc, and simple-to-install drivers. The Smart Start installer for printing and scanning helps customers through the installation process removing the need for any IT support staff, getting the homeworker quickly up and running.

As we all come to terms with recent events, many of us have already started to adapt and rebuild within these challenging and changing work practices.

The Next Step: Tying it all Together with DocuShare

So how can businesses benefit from DocuShare, especially in these challenging times?

DocuShare Flex is a cloud-based SaaS content management solution offering 24/7 secure access to the documents and information you need from any location. It can be custom-configured to meet almost any business need, and Flex helps accelerate your digital transformation efforts by providing pre-configured solutions for common business problems in the cloud.

Collaborating and sharing information stays within secure channels instead of sending documents over email (often unencrypted) or 3rd party transfer methods (which may store your information for an indefinite period). Direct links to key documents or collections, with appropriate access rights, can be sent to individuals who can access via encrypted channels using their PC browser or DocuShare App for mobile devices.

DocuShare Flex’s real strength versus its main competitors comes from its ability to automate key processes, real-time document collaboration while also helping to remove paper from the outset to support business digital transformation initiatives. Information can be captured from multiple sources including hardcopy scans and electronic web forms then moved into automated workflows or made available to share or collaborate with others. Document lifecycle policies can also be managed to help businesses stay compliant to government legislation requirements such as automatic document expiry/deletion.

To aid with capturing and digitizing hardcopy documents along with transferring files between different systems, DocuShare can fully integrate with your ConnectKey MFP and other key business tools such as Cloud Storage, ERP and CRM platforms through available apps and connectors. Wouldn’t it be nice to scan directly to Microsoft 365, OneDrive, or even Evernote right from the C405 panel to save time? While you’re there, just browse your folders and print a document from your boss that you need to review. Our range of connectors to popular cloud-hosted solutions completely avoid the need for those middle steps, helping to streamline your document storage process and get you better connected.

Xerox also sports many apps that connect to those popular CRM or ERP systems that the company has standardized on. Some cases customers might have had these apps in their business on departmental MFP like an AltaLink. The beauty of this is that they can have the same functionality on their VersaLink at the home office. With apps like Salesforce or Oracle NetSuite, users can connect directly to their business-critical software, upload their customer contracts, accounts payable paperwork, or keep up-to-date on important business paperwork. Keeping the business process flowing like they were in their traditional office is key to staying successful.

Working from home may be the new “normal,” after all is said and done. With that, the support structure is also changing for the millions that have moved to their “home office,” which is adding the pain of setting up your hardware, or just getting support that you would get in the traditional office.

Xerox has the tools you need to work from home effectively, securely, and efficiently, bringing to bear all the conveniences of a modern office and placing them right at your fingertips without skipping a beat. Pandemic or not, times are changing for the telecommuter and Xerox is leading the way.

Check out this Xerox blog below about the Bold Benefits of Color in Printing.

Benefits of Color in Printing

Color isn’t just for special occasions when you want to impress or add a little emphasis. Color makes an enormous impact in everyday use – from marketing and advertising materials to dazzling your boss with engaging presentations and getting that proposal approved. Here’s why you should use it more liberally in your everyday communications.

Capturing the imagination

Research proves the power of color in capturing the attention of an audience. Upon immediate exposure to materials that represent you or your brand, viewers may accept or reject based on the presence of color. In fact, color makes an impression that is 39% more memorable, sells 80% more and improves brand recognition by up to a whopping 80%*.

Challenge the color-is-costly mindset

The “color as too costly” mindset is as antiquated as the very first print technology. When it comes to performance, today’s color printing with printers like the Xerox® VersaLink® C405 built on ConnectKey® Technology  and are comparable to mono printing in speed, advanced functionality and user friendliness, not to mention in networking and manageability.

Xerox® ConnectKey® Technology makes using color and saving money compatible with simple controls that can restrict usage and regulate color printing.

How to make a splash

Now that you know color is both engaging and affordable, you can focus on how to use it wisely. Implement the use of a style guide that establishes rules for what colors to apply to your materials, and understand the impact certain colors have on the psychology of your audience. Use color strategically, not just on a whim; highlight calls-to-action and response buttons, key information and phone numbers – all are proven to up a business’s response rate.

The power of color

If you’ve ever painted a room one color only to paint it over in another, you know that too much of a good thing always so good. Take the time to learn about the emotional messaging around color to make sure your brand colors and collateral reflect you or your business’s personality and place in the world.

For example, we all know red attracts attention. Did you also know it actually increases heart rate? You may love the color but if your yoga studio flyer features it you may be doing downward dog all by yourself.

Color and design tips for maximum marketing impact

Understanding how color works on your audience is essential to controlling your message and content. Successful content marketing depends on knowing how colors work best together.

Color is only as effective as your printer

The whole reason you’re using color is to leave an impression with your audience and, in turn, to sell (studies say that color can actually help you sell 80 percent more*). Make sure all your creative work pays off by using a high-quality color printer to match the high-quality output you need.

Count on the Xerox® VersaLink® C405 Color Multifunction Printer for your color needs in today’s modern workspace:

  • Xerox® ConnectKey® Technology-enabled smart Workplace Assistant
  • Revolutionary productivity from the new benchmark in multifunction printers

Is Your Wide Format Printer Working For You Or Are You Working For It?

Technology is supposed to increase our productivity, but when we reach the point where our devices require as much attention and TLC as a newborn, it’s probably time to make a change (pun intended).  Below are some of the signs that you are working too hard for your wide format printer.


A new operating system comes out that promises to make life easier for everyone. But, the printer does not communicate effectively with the new system and the inevitable errors and crashes ensue. If you are updating the operating system in your office, you should consider updating your wide format printers to avoid productivity delays, computer crashes and frustrated (and unproductive) employees.


Sure that wide format printer capable of lightning-fast 2 Ds a minute was great when your business didn’t need anything faster, but now that the number and size of jobs has grown, you need a device capable of keeping up with your team.  There are a variety of wide format printers in the market today capable of printing 4, 8, 14 or even 30 Ds a minute.  If your staff is waiting on your printer to print, you are wasting your most valuable resource – time.


While maturity is an admirable quality in humans, it is a definite disadvantage in technology.  Chances are you are not driving a car that is 10 or more years old with over 300,000 miles on it (and if you are, you know you are driving on borrowed time).  There are many factors that determine the lifespan of your wide format printer including how many square feet it has printed during its lifetime and how well it has been maintained. Wide format printers are notoriously well-built to withstand heavy usage for years, but any device over eight years in age may have reached the end of useful life.   When the repair technician has his own coffee cup in your breakroom, you need to start thinking about new equipment.


Over time, it can become more difficult to find the ink and print heads required for your wide format printer.  When you get to the point where it feels as though you are on an eternal scavenger hunt to find the parts you need, it is time to look at new equipment.


The speed of your wide format printer (as covered above) is just one aspect of the overall time spent printing.  Many newer models have instant on printing which removes the tedium of waiting for the machine to warm up.  Others print mixed sets – mixed in both size and color and black and white – eliminating the need for hand collating.  Inks that can be changed on the fly without stopping your print job and choosing models which hold more rolls will also speed up the overall time getting those crucial prints out the door.

Interested in a new wide format printer?

These are just five common indications that you may need to look at replacing your wide format equipment.  Perhaps the most telling sign is if your printer has become the target of much discussion among your staff (and not in a good way).  If you hear coworkers plotting on the best way to kill the printer and make it look like an accident, then too much energy is being needlessly expended.  There are many options in both models of equipment and purchasing and leasing plans which can make getting a new piece of wide format equipment a painless process.

Contact Repro Products for a personal consultation to determine which printer will best meet your needs and budget. You can view all of our wide format printer options here. Be sure to request a quote if you are interested in learning more about a particular wide format printer.

BIM is no longer just a cool buzz word to throw around at cocktail parties, it is a reality and it is here to stay.  According to McGraw Hill, 50% of owners are requiring BIM to be used on their projects.  The increase of BIM is directly tied to the increase of IPD (Integrated Project Delivery) contracts which means the burden for change orders and mistakes is spread around.

As the competition for jobs increases, it is incumbent on firms to stand out.  But how?  By investing in a color wide format printer, of course!  What, how can that be the answer?  I didn’t even buy into BIM being a cool buzz word at parties – no way spending money on color printing is the answer to winning work and being more profitable.  Or is it?  Keep reading, it will all come together . . .

Why is BIM Driving Color in Wide Format Printing?

Better collaboration and understanding of construction documents helps reduce rework (read that as COSTS) on jobs.  The Economist estimated that 10 – 30% of the costs of any given project can be attributed to mistakes, rework or errors.  Printing construction documents in color increases productivity, reduces delays and reduces litigation.  Europe has already embraced color printing with 50% of construction documents printed in color, compared to 10% in the U.S.

So how does this translate into winning more jobs and reducing expenses?  Color documents reduce search time by up to 80% and reduce errors by 80% while increasing retention by 78%.  If you can reduce the time on a job, reduce errors AND reduce the costs, your clients will take notice.

But doesn’t color cost a lot more than black and white?  Recent developments in wide format technology have brought down the price of color printing making it more affordable than ever while increasing the print speeds.  If you are unsure of the benefits of color printing, though, perhaps you would be prudent to send some documents to your local reprographer and allow them to print them for you in color.  Use them on your job site and see for yourself how big a difference they can make for you.

Interested in 3D Laser Scanning for your next renovation project? 

Check out our latest laser scanning project at a water treatment facility. The first picture was taken in a 3D laser scan from 2017.


Repro Products scanned the existing conditions of a rotary screen system at a water treatment plant last year which enabled the engineers to fit this equipment in place this year with minor modifications.


Screen Rotary - 2018

The screen rotary is being replaced to accommodate the growing population of the area surrounding the plant. The machines have a fine screen inside that push the waste through them separating the water from the trash that makes is then pushed into the sewer plant. The water goes on to be further treated while the waste is disposed of in the dumpsters below.

3D Laser Scanning for your business

Repro Products’ 3D laser scanning services enable clients to add, modify, validate and document their design process in context from existing environments. This project allowed the plant to have a full scope of the existing conditions before renovations were made to the facility. If you are interested in 3D laser scanning services for your business then contact us or give us a call at 866-665-7604.

HP topped the list for value of color in construction.

Construction Executive recognized the top 25 companies that make construction more productive and profitable. To view the article click here. More information on HP is on page 60. The technology solutions span every phase of the construction life cycle, from surveying, designing and bidding through estimating and project management. In addition, these companies make the tech that contractors depend on to manage their personnel, vendors, equipment, financials, payroll, document printing and more.

With an extensive portfolio, HP helps enable construction executives make printing in color much easier and cost effective. 

HP DesignJet Printers for Construction: T520, T720, T830, T2530, T3500

  • Great for onsite job trailers or small office workgroups
  • Robust, compact 24″ and 36″ options, WiFi enabled
  • Built-in scanner; scan and share documents wherever you are
  • Starting at $2,105

HP PageWide XL Printers for Construction

  • For high productivity needs with low cost per copy
  • Can print up to 30 D/A1 pages per minute
  • Excellent reliability and ease of use
  • Price upon request:  Click here to request a quote

When looking for ways to increase profitability and productivity, construction executives and project managers are more frequently identifying the “human error factor” as an opportunity to reduce costs, and are finding success after converting traditional black and white plans to color. Doing so increases contractors’ and subcontractors’ effective communication in the field. In fact, studies have shown that every $1 invested in color can yield $4 in cost savings for a given project1.


Low productivity has been a constant drumbeat in the construction industry, raising costs and adding risk and waste across project lifecycles. Industry leaders are looking for ways to drive risk and waste out of their own project-delivery processes, and they see many opportunities for improvement across the range of engagements. Based on The Economist, “Rethinking productivity across the construction industry: The challenge of change,” (2015), a survey revealed that:

  • 74 percent of construction professionals surveyed indicate that lagging productivity is a major challenge;
  • 48 percent believe that their firms have failed to come up with a coherent strategy to address this problem; and
  • 32 percent cite poor communication and collaboration as one of the leading obstacles to partner-related productivity, underscoring the need for better partnership models among contractors, clients, and investors.


Waste Is Costly

According to the Lyra Research Inc. article “Color Construction Documents: A Simple Way to Reduce Costs,” general industry estimates that between 10 percent and 30 percent of all building project costs can be attributed to wasted activities, such as schedule overruns due to inaccurate coordination scheduling, wasted labor and management time, wasted materials and unnecessary litigation. Based on U.S. Department of Commerce building estimates for 2009, a 10 percent waste factor is equal to approximately $94 billion.”


Unforced Human Error Results in Consequences

  • Wasted material when building
  • Wasted operator time
  • Wasted time for manager to make corrections
  • Time delay of the project due to the error
  • Reprint of the plot with the corrections
  • Litigation with the project lead

Studies suggest that between 70 percent and 90 percent of projects exceed the original planned cost, and the overrun commonly reaches between 50 percent and 100 percent of the budget. Twenty-one percent of the time, poor exchange of information and communication causes errors at work.


Low-productivity Consequences

  • Project owner: A major concern is closing the project on time with no extra costs. Any delay in the project delivery is most likely to result in extra costs.
  • Architect: Focused on transmitting attractive ideas and appealing designs when planning and designing. Providing misleading information can delay the entire project execution.
  • General contractor: A primary task is monitoring and controlling the implementation of the project. Any error when transmitting information can result in litigation, as well as additional costs and delays with the project owner.
  • Subcontractor: The focus is on delivering on requests as quickly and accurately as possible, minimizing errors. Information errors can result in rework and time delays and penalties from the general contractor.


Color printing has become an important component in projects because it can decrease human error rates. It has been proven that color documents are more easily understood and the information is retained at higher rates versus monochrome documents.2 The use of color documents reduces errors and allows a team to easily understand the sections of a plan for which they are responsible. During the bidding phase, color documents make a more professional impression than monochrome documents. Throughout the project, the use of color in documents can help keep the project on time and on budget.

The HP Advantage for Construction Professionals

HP enables construction executives and project managers to add color printing into their workflow by offering devices that make color printing more productive and cost effective. Their portfolio ranges from compact HP DesignJet T-Series 24 & 36″ Wi-Fi enabled printers, designed for CAD and general-purpose applications, all the way up to the high-volume HP PageWide XL printers that can print 30 D-Size (24×36″) plans in one minute, with integrated scanning capabilities.

Scanning used to be a cumbersome process that involved numerous steps:

  • Locate and scan the paperwork
  • Create a new folder on your desktop
  • Name the folder
  • Move the scanned paperwork to the folder you created
  • Name the file

Thanks to Web Capture Service from Xerox, scanning functionality has improved to make the process easier for the many companies that have discovered the convenience and added security of digitized documents. Web Capture Service combines app and scanning technology, providing the same level of ease and convenience people experience with their smartphones. Documents can now be scanned into web applications, making the time it takes to enter business data into programs like QuickBooks Online, Microsoft Office 365 and Google Apps significantly shorter and easier.

Reduce the Number of Steps Required for Scanning Documents

Small and medium businesses, when surveyed, indicated that most capture applications are too expensive, complicated and tedious. Xerox Web Capture Service, however, allows users to insert the information on their document directly into almost any web application that requires a document to be attached, making the process quicker and easier.  To simplify things even more, Web Capture Service works with any scanning device (including non-Xerox) and operates as a cloud service right from your desktop.

Cut Your Scanning Time in Half

Not only does Web Capture simplify the process of document management by automatically triggering scanning via an easy-to-use browser plug-in, it also makes it easier to scan multiple files thanks to the ‘follow-me’ scan repository. This process both eliminates steps and improves productivity by cutting the time it takes to go from scanning to working and also reduces the risk of errors. Removing numerous naming and storing steps creates a more efficient and reliable workflow. Multiply the number of eliminated steps by the number of employees you have and you will begin to see the cumulative benefits of Web Capture.

You can even scan a large volume of paperwork by enabling Web Capture on your Xerox ConnectKey® enabled MFP and scan directly to the Cloud. Once stored there, you simply drag and drop those docs into your business application. It really is that easy.

Repro Products, Inc., Atlanta’s exclusive Xerox Agency, has some proven methods to help you cut business expenses through better document management. Many of these are quite simple and can be put into practice immediately, meaning you can start saving money right away.

Reduce Print Costs

With businesses spending approximately 3% on printing, this is the third largest business expense behind rent and payroll. If your company is like most companies, you underestimate how much you’re spending on printing by around 40%. There are some simple strategies, like printing on both sides of the paper whenever possible and restricting color printing, that are good places to begin saving money. Xerox printers let you set permissions and restrict color printing to specific documents, departments or employees.

Almost half of printed pages are discarded and another 20 percent are never picked up from the printer at all! Eliminate unneeded printing with Xerox printers that don’t print until the user validates the print job with a PIN code they enter at the printer. The page that was never printed is the biggest savings of all.

Although the above strategies will provide some savings, engaging Repro Products to outsource your print management is the most effective way to reduce your print costs. A managed print services (MPS) strategy can cut your costs by up to 30%. You will also get a single point of contact who can manage your vendors, handle supplies ordering and provide a detailed understanding of your print environment. We will also provide support and advise you on industry-standard best practices. Contact us to find out more about managed print services.

Assess Your Equipment Needs

When you want to cut costs, your hardware is another expense you need to examine. A print assessment by Repro Products can identify opportunities to save money while boosting efficiency. If your organization can’t immediately determine how many printers are in your office, where they’re located or who is printing on them, an assessment is the first step you need to take.

While it may seem counter-intuitive to spend money on new equipment in order to reduce costs, outdated office equipment can be an unnecessary drain on your budget. Dated equipment is inefficient and is likely the source of many costly repairs. A print assessment can also tell you the best placement of your devices for the teams they serve in order to achieve optimum utilization.

Go Digital

Digitizing documents and storing them in the cloud reduces expenses by decreasing printing and by improving productivity. Digitization can eliminate paper from how you invoice, report financials, manage legal and human resource forms and handle other time-consuming processes. It reduces your office space needs as well since you’ll have fewer physical records to store.

Xerox Web Capture Services automates and scans documents for immediate use without the additional steps of creating files, renaming documents and importing to an applications.  Now scanning is easier than ever, eliminating a difficult learning curve and making your transition to digital easier than you may imagine. It also works with any brand of scanner so you won’t need to invest in new ones. Xerox printers using ConnectKey Technology® let you scan and print documents directly to and from cloud storage apps like Microsoft 365 and Dropbox which is a huge time saver.

Say goodbye to ancient, one-trick pony printers and say hello to the next generation of printers that encompass all of your office functionality in one device. The modern printer is a multifunctional tool that delivers a myriad of services to increase your office productivity. Today’s multifunction printer (MFP) is not limited to just printing, but instead it is capable of scanning, faxing, printing and more to consolidate your office workflows to just one machine.

The newest generation of MFPs even support apps that improve security, provide language translation and more to free your workers for other tasks. Learn how one piece of office equipment can support and help grow your business in an increasingly deadline-driven work environment.

Here are 5 reasons why a multifunction printer is vital for your business.

1. Increase Efficiency

Think of your printer as a member of your team. Your printer is a cog in the wheel of the workflow process that you need to run as smoothly as possible without any hiccups. Not only will an MFP print more quickly than your standard printer, but it will also allow you to perform multiple office functionalities with one machine, allowing you to save time and boost your company’s productivity.

2. Enhance The User Experience

People depend on printers at work every day, so all interactions with your printer should be as user-friendly as possible. This means that every feature of your printer should be intuitive so that it is easy and straightforward to use. This also means that if any issues arise with the printer, that the user can be easily guided as to how to fix the problem and continue with business as usual.

3. Save Time

An improved user experience ultimately saves you time and money by making each phase of the printing process as simple and painless as possible. According to Xerox, the average worker in the U.S. with a shared central printer spends three minutes waiting for a print job. This might not sound like much, but that adds up to 13 hours a year!

4. Customize Your Device

Easily personalize the interface for each MFP user. Each user has the ability to manage their print jobs and create a customized experience that works for them. Users can quickly access documents they need to print, scan or fax from cloud services like Dropbox, Google Drive or OneDrive. They can even connect to your MFP from all devices with the latest mobile technologies.

5. Improve Customer Service

MFPs allow customers to be delivered forms, contracts, proposals etc. on the spot at the point of service or contact. For instance, a statement of work could be generated online, printed out during a meeting for a client’s signature and then scanned back into the system. This is the functionality of three devices being replaced by the use of one machine to expedite your workflow and ultimately improve your customer service.

MFP | Repro Products

Catapult your business into the digital age with the latest generation MFP. Not only will you be cutting costs, streamlining operations and increasing your office efficiency, but you will have the added bonus of creating more physical space in your office by shrinking the size of your print corner. One MFP will replace the need for three separate machines. The upgraded functionality of your printer will cause a ripple effect that ultimately results in better business and faster service for your customers.

Need to upgrade your printer? Let us help!

If your printer is slowing down the productivity of your office or you have simply outgrown the functionality of your current printer, then check out these MFP options. If you need help figuring out what MFP would best suit your business functionality, then please contact us and we can help you choose the best option tailored to your specific office needs. We look forward to helping you choose a printer that will play a crucial role in enhancing the performance of your business.

Technology is supposed to increase our productivity, but when we reach the point where our devices require as much attention and TLC as a newborn, it’s probably time to make a change (pun intended). Below are some of the signs that you are working too hard for your wide format printer.


A new operating system comes out that promises to make life easier for everyone. But, the printer does not communicate effectively with the new system and the inevitable errors and crashes ensue. If you are updating the operating system in your office, you should consider updating your wide format printers to avoid productivity delays, computer crashes and frustrated (and unproductive) employees.


Sure that wide format printer capable of lightning-fast 2 Ds a minute was great when your business didn’t need anything faster, but now that the number and size of jobs has grown, you need a device capable of keeping up with your team. There are a variety of wide format printers in the market today capable of printing 4, 8, 14 or even 30 Ds a minute. If your staff is waiting on your printer to print, you are wasting your most valuable resource – time.

New Color Printing Technologies Broaden the Opportunities for Print Shops



While maturity is an admirable quality in humans, it is a definite disadvantage in technology. Chances are you are not driving a car that is 10 or more years old with over 300,000 miles on it (and if you are, you know you are driving on borrowed time). There are many factors that determine the lifespan of your wide format printer including how many square feet it has printed during its lifetime and how well it has been maintained. Wide format printers are notoriously well-built to withstand heavy usage for years, but any device over eight years in age may have reached the end of useful life. When the repair technician has his own coffee cup in your breakroom, you need to start thinking about new equipment.


Over time, it can become more difficult to find the ink and print heads required for your wide format printer. When you get to the point where it feels as though you are on an eternal scavenger hunt to find the parts you need, it is time to look at new equipment.


The speed of your wide format printer (as covered above) is just one aspect of the overall time spent printing. Many newer models have instant on printing which removes the tedium of waiting for the machine to warm up. Others print mixed sets – mixed in both size and color and black and white – eliminating the need for hand collating. Inks that can be changed on the fly without stopping your print job and choosing models which hold more rolls will also speed up the overall time getting those crucial prints out the door.

These are just five common indications that you may need to look at replacing your wide format equipment. Perhaps the most telling sign is if your printer has become the target of much discussion among your staff (and not in a good way). If you hear coworkers plotting on the best way to kill the printer and make it look like an accident, then too much energy is being needlessly expended. There are many options in both models of equipment and purchasing and leasing plans which can make getting a new piece of wide format equipment a painless process.

Contact Repro Products for a personal consultation to determine which printer will best meet your needs and budget.

Section 179 Tax Deductions Have Been Extended for 2017

A major part of any business strategy is making the right investment choices to position your company for long term success; including choosing the right equipment to push your business in the right direction. However, one of the toughest obstacles facing businesses is finding the capital to pay for that investment.

Consult your tax and financial advisors to review and assess the factors that may apply to your business and tax situation. 

Business owners can take advantage of purchasing equipment and deduct the full purchase price of financed or leased equipment for the current tax year. The equipment must be within specific dollar limits.

What is the Section 179 Tax Deduction?

The Section 179 Tax Deduction of the IRS Tax Code allows a business to deduct, for the current tax year, the full purchase price of financed or leased equipment that qualifies for the deduction.

Major expenses typically are required to be depreciated over a term of years to account for what is known as the “useful life of the purchase” as dictated by the IRS. However, with the Section 179 tax deduction, business owners can elect to immediately expense the full purchase price of the equipment.

For example, if you purchase equipment for $50,000, you would typically write it off a little at a time through depreciation. Such as, $10,000 per year for say five years. However, most businesses would prefer to write off the entire equipment purchase price for the year they purchased it. This makes it more attractive to purchase more equipment when needed, instead of carrying over the purchase amount minus depreciation.


What Purchases qualify for Section 179 Deductions?

If you’re interested in taking advantage of the tax deductions this year, take a look at some of the purchases that would qualify for the Section 179 deductions:

Most tangible personal property for business use, such as:


When Can You Elect to Use the Section 179 Deduction?

You are eligible to take advantage of the Section 179 tax deduction for the tax year in which you placed the purchase(s) in service. For example, if you purchase a HP PageWide XL 8000 Printer and place the equipment into service by December 31, 2017, then you would be able to take advantage of the Section 179 deduction when you file your 2017 tax return.

One of the biggest “Grudge Fests” my engineering clients have is sharing their files and projects with internal colleagues.  Having worked with our clients and their Autodesk software for over 20 years, we have really gotten to know the internal ecosystem of your offices.

Many firms try to store their files on networks folders using Windows Explorer.  When you have to share your data with a group, there is no simple way of protecting your project files from being overwritten.

It is no surprise that even when this method of sharing data is policy, you will always find islands of the same data with different names, same versions with the same names, and files you just really need to work with stored on someone else’s data island.

Engineers spend a great deal of time trying to find the correct file.  Which one is the most up to date?  Also, when copying or renaming files, you find yourself needing to repair references.

If the data is on a shared network, it is much harder to find if you do not know the file name. We see hundreds of manually maintained spreadsheets where engineers try to find some way to be able to understand how to locate the data they are wanting.

Is it any wonder that you want to keep your own set of files locally on your own computer?

Project data management should make your job easier, not more frustrating. If you’re like most firms, Microsoft Windows Explorer and some mapped network drives are what you use to organize your Project data into manageable parts. You might have one drive for design data, another drive for administrative data, and additional drives for other content such as submittals, client files, and more. Although this type of setup is common, it can be problematic. Project data can easily be stored in the wrong subfolder or drive or even server. It can be too easy for project data to be accidentally misplaced–for example, by dragging and dropping a folder into another folder without even realizing it. Worse yet, what about problems due to improper file access controls?

What does maintaining the security of your design project data mean to you?

A typical civil project consists of many team members. Even though these members are all part of the same team, their need to access, edit, create, or delete project information is different. Drafters should be able to access, but not edit, a project’s design. Engineers should be able to access survey data, but only after the surveyor approves it. Administrators should not be able to delete the engineer’s correspondence. And no one should ever be able to alter the record drawings. If the wrong people had the wrong access rights to your project data, the results could be disastrous. Causing severe delays and costly errors for your project, your firm, and even your clients.

Autodesk Vault Professional can get your files off Data Island.  It works with AutoCAD and Civil 3D.  You do not have to worry about long file names, card indexing or complicated rules.  It is easy to use and genuinely gives you time back to actually do the parts of work that you enjoy.

Helping our clients implement Vault is one of our favorite things to do.  We have been doing it for a long time and get the most satisfaction keeping our engineers off the Island.

Having been a Value Added Reseller of Autodesk software for over 20 years, we have experienced the transition of training techniques.  For the type of software we support, newer methods rarely provide clients a level of learning comparable to traditional training.

We still offer open enrollment In-Person training because we understand and value our client’s actual business.

In 1997, all of our open enrollment training classes were always full.  AutoCAD was just integrating with Windows and some of our larger architectural clients were still implementing internal company email.

Through the years, the software has changed.  We have more architectural clients on Revit than AutoCAD.  Our civil engineers and surveyors use AutoCAD Civil 3D.  However, we have a large client base of contractors who still use AutoCAD.

When clients were hiring new employees, they would send them to training.  When clients were making the transition from 2D to 3D, they had full implementation services that included classroom and project-based training.

When intranet bandwidth grew and travel budgets tightened, we saw the evolution of online training.  The next progression was the explosion of pre-recorded online videos.

Business Owners and Managers tend to take the path of least resistance.  This is especially true when it comes to making sure employees are (and stay) trained properly in a software system that accounts for 6-8 hours of use a day.

Investing in training for employees goes beyond work productivity and efficiency.  According to an ASTD study, companies that invest in comprehensive training show:

  • increased income of 218%, per employee than those with less comprehensive training
  • higher profit margins by 24% than companies who spend less on training

Students learn better and retain more when training is in an uninterrupted, scheduled environment.

Clients’ ROI of new software and versions are the poorest when end users are left to their own schedules to watch videos.

Students who attend a live presentation via the web are directly dependent on their own ability to not multi-task during training.  Those in the architectural, engineering and design fields are typically caught up in projects.  When not physically removed from the computer or environment of normal work, the chances of poor understanding and retention exponentially increase.

In-Person training allows the trainer to walk the room during exercises to see if commands being taught are being executed properly.  It also makes it easier for students to ask questions by being truly interactive.

Some clients do not have enough students for a dedicated class of their own.  Or if they do, they cannot afford for all of them to be taking training at the same time.

We still offer open enrollment In-Person training because we understand and value our clients’ actual business.  Training classes for our core products are offered at our training center in Smyrna, GA every 6-8 weeks.

According to a recent market research study conducted by Market Reports Hub, the 3D Scanner market size is expected to grow, in terms of value, from $3.41 Billion in 2015 to $5.90 Billion by 2022 at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 9.6% between the same time period. 

View complete report on 3D Scanner Market here:
The largest gain in popularity can be attributed to portable CMM-based 3D scanners because of the convenience and wealth of possibilities they afford for scanning tight spaces with a high rate of accuracy when applied to conventional and non-conventional scan jobs. Portable CMM-based scanners are categorized into handheld and articulated arm CMM. Expected to grow at the highest rate in the portable CMM category are the handheld 3D scanners. 

What is 3D Laser Scanning?

3D Laser Scanning is the process of collecting data points of physical objects using a line of laser light and transforming them into point clouds of data from the surface of said object. The scanner emits the laser light over its full field of view. When the laser light touches an object it then reflects back the light towards the scanner, sending the scanner x-y-z coordinates and information about every surrounding point allowing for a three-dimensional cloud of points to be gathered. 

This point cloud information can be saved and rendered in various design softwares, allowing for the creation of 2D CAD renderings, and the x-y-z coordinates allow for the creation of a 3D model. 3D scanners can improve the time of production operations, while reducing costs and redundancy of projects, allowing for less time needed for project timelines and meeting deadlines which results in a more efficient and cost-effective project for every stakeholder involved. 

Why Use 3D Laser Scanning?

There are a number of practical real-world applications for 3D Laser Scanning as it pertains to the AEC industry. 3D Laser Scanning services allow for improved Building Information Modeling (BIM) solutions, such as procuring As-Built information for better communication, eliminating the need for manual field measurements, and shortening of project lifecycles. 

The cost of scanning services has decreased to now be competitive with manual measurement methods, thanks largely to the advancements in hardware and software solutions. Cost along with the increasing number of analytical options available thru 3D Laser Scanning is making it an increasingly attractive option to conduct detailed surveying of building structures.

Autodesk’s premier annual event – Autodesk University – is four months away, and Repro Products is excited to announce that we have two speakers representing us this year at the world’s largest gathering of Autodesk software users. Our two speakers, Lead AEC Application Engineer, Dzan Ta and Application Engineer, Dave Young will be hosting two classes during the three-day conference in Las Vegas, from November 15-17, 2016. 

This year’s theme is “Insight. Innovation. Inspiration” as thousands of CAD professionals converge on Las Vegas to share ideas, tips and tricks with their peers to help improve design processes, foster innovative solutions, and inspire the future of making things. 


There will be over 650 sessions to attend at this year’s conference with a slew of great information and tips for the 2017 software releases, so make sure you plan accordingly to maximize your time and learning potential as registration will open in August.
