With its all-new smartphone-like user interface (UI), the Xerox WorkCentre 6515 Colour Multifunction Printer (MFP) has won a 2018 iF DESIGN AWARD from the International Forum Design GmbH.
The WorkCentre 6515 won in the Computer category with more than 6,400 entries from 54 countries, featuring printers, scanners, copiers, laptops, tablets and even robotics. Capturing the attention of the competition’s global selection committee was the device’s tilting UI, accessible for users sitting or standing, multimodal feedback including visual and audio cues, and an emotive LED display featuring behavioral responses and machine status. The UI is also built into Xerox AltaLink and VersaLink devices.
David Parsons, Director, Experience Design Group, Xerox said, “this award affirms our creative ability to blend innovative design with uncompromising ease-of-use – a necessity for customers who rely on their MFPs to drive efficiencies in their office environments.”
Xerox’s award-winning look was developed by a global team of product designers from Xerox and Fuji Xerox in Japan. Global research conducted by Xerox and Fuji Xerox during the product development phase found that participants who value their office aesthetic stated good design helps improve employee productivity and morale.
With strong sales worldwide, the WorkCentre 6515 supports mobile and cloud platforms and prints at speeds of 30 pages per minute.
