Xerox® Extensible Interface Platform (EIP)

Energize your work, build on your investment.

Xerox® Extensible Interface Platform (EIP)

Xerox Extensible Interface Platform (EIP) allows your Xerox multifunction printer (MFP) to adapt to fit the way you work, not the other way around. EIP is a software platform inside many Xerox MFPs that allows independent software vendors and developers to easily create personalized document management solutions that you can access right from your MFP's touch screen.

End-user advantages

  • Simplify complicated workflows – replace multiple steps with one touch of the MFP screen
  • Personalize your MFP – log in once then use multiple applications without needing to log in again
  • Complete tasks entirely at the MFP, including retrieving documents on a network without a computer
  • Increase ROI by leveraging your existing business applications and databases

 

IT/System integrator advantages

  • Easily integrate solutions into your existing IT infrastructure
  • Create customized solutions easily. Since EIP is based on web standards, you don't need extensive programming knowledge to write an application.
  • Create applications using any development platform
  • Manage centralized solutions from anywhere in the world
  • Expand and adapt your MFP along with your business

 

Examples of what EIP can enable

  • Scan hardcopy information directly into a document repository with the simple touch of a button
  • Use menus and language that are specific to your business or workgroup, such as "Search client database," "Submit form to claims department," or "Fax to accounts payable"
  • All of your personal preferences can appear on the touch-screen of your multifunction system with the swipe your ID badge
  • Send a document to a network print queue and print it from any MFP on the network with a swipe of your ID card

 

How to get started

We provide free and open access to the tools needed to create EIP applications with the EIP Software Development Kit (SDK). Whether you're a java programmer, Windows C programmer, php, or .NET, you can easily create a wide range of applications with EIP. Applications can be created quickly by using standard web development tools, modular Application Programming Interfaces (API), and various EIP web services.
