 No matter which industry you’re in, there are always methods to increase your productivity. Technology has made it easier than ever.

One easy way to increase productivity is to download general productivity applications on your printer. These applications can help speed up document workflow and streamline business processes.     

Printers today have come a long way from being basic office machines. Just like smartphones and computers, they now use the internet to offer advanced functionalities.

They’ve transformed into advanced technological instruments that can act as a quasi-workplace assistant for your company.  

Apps are an integral part of modernizing printers. As a print vendor that partners with Xerox, we’ve devoted our time to learning about the various applications available and highlighting the ones that stand out.    

One of the most popular categories of apps on the Xerox App Gallery is the Productivity category. Today, we’ll discuss five productivity-focused apps that are worth looking into.

Before we continue, it's important to note that some of these apps will cost money, and not every app will be worth investing in if you don’t have a general need for it.

Additionally, other brands have their own applications that may better suit your situation. While we’ll be focusing on Xerox’s apps today due to our expertise, they are not the only brand that offers apps as an additional printer feature.

The 5 Best Printer Productivity Apps in Xerox App Gallery   

Without further ado, here are the five most notable printer productivity apps on the Xerox App Gallery:    


AIDA (Artificial Intelligence for Document Automation) is a solution that uses AI to manage and process documents. It extracts data from any type of document, analyzes it, and adapts it to your needs. You can easily extract information or properties such as:

  • Words
  • Specific phrases
  • Relevant dates
  • Addresses
  • Relevant numbers

To use the app, you must have an AIDA account. You can use a QR code to quickly enroll your Xerox printer to your AIDA account. Once you’re signed in, scan documents such as contracts and invoices and let AIDA’s artificial intelligence process them. Plus, AIDA also lets you automatically send your digitized files to supported outputs like Xerox DocuShare, Dropbox, and Google Drive.

This app ultimately serves as a personal business assistant that helps enterprises streamline operations and automate tasks.

You can install the AIDA app on an unlimited number of devices for $20 per device.

2. Summarizer App

The Summarizer is a general productivity application that generates summaries of lengthy documents, such as news articles, social media articles, or blog posts. It uses artificial intelligence to create extractive and abstractive summaries.

  1. Extractive summaries condense original documents to a smaller percentage of the original. These types of summaries are available in over 175 languages.
  1. Abstractive summaries are concise interpretations of the original text, so there may be new phrases or sentences. These summaries, however, are only available in English.  

This app is beneficial for organizations dealing with dozens to hundreds of daily documents, such as hospitals and schools, who aim to reduce time spent on reading and research.

Some features that come with the Summarizer app include:  

  • Preview your summary at the user interface.   
  • Email the result in PDF or Microsoft Word format.   
  • Print a copy of the summary right from the device.

  • 250 credits for $49

  • 5,000 credits for $659

There is a 30-day free trial available, or 50 credits, depending on which comes first.

You can send your scanned files to single or multiple destinations such as:

  • Scan to email
  • SMB
  • SFTP network locations

Plus, with the Job Split feature, you can split large documents by any number of pages.
