Use Dell Document Hub to Work Smarter and Collaborate
With single sign-on, the Dell Document Hub (Doc Hub) allows users to share, create and print across many common cloud document platforms including Box®, Dropbox®, Google Drive™, Microsoft® SkyDrive® and Microsoft® SharePoint® Online – simultaneously from a single access point. This unique feature solves the challenge of managing documents from several cloud services and platforms and enables users to edit and collaborate with scanned hardcopies. Dell’s Document Hub feature is accessible through an app on Windows 8/8.1/RT devices and through the new Dell Color Multifunction Printer C2665dnf.
The Dell Document Hub settings can be personalized through the Dell Document Hub portal and leverage state-of-the-art security standards to help safeguard data transfers. The data center is compliant to widely-recognized security standards, and content transmission is secure with the latest data encryption technology.
Dell Introduces the World’s Smartest Color Multifunction Printer: C2665dnf
The Dell C2665dnf Color Multifunction Printer is the first to feature smart document capture, converting hardcopies to editable files with cloud Optical Character Recognition (OCR) directly from the printer2. It enables seamless collaboration across cloud platforms with Dell Document Hub and connects from multiple operating systems. The Dell Document Hub feature within the printer enables aggregated file search across multiple clouds at once and preview of up to 10 files (with up to 3 pages per file).
NFC-enabled for convenient “Tap and Print,” users can operate the printer like a smartphone. Including a 4.3-inch color touchscreen, the C2665dnf supports the Dell Mobile Print app (Android), AirPrint and Google Cloud Print Direct to allow printing from a majority of mobile devices. The printer also enables users to scan documents directly from the printer to a variety of destinations, including FTP, Email, USB and PCs. Hands-free scanning and copying is fast using the Duplex Automatic Document Feeder (DADF), and data is protected with a comprehensive suite of network security.
The C2665dnf will be available on Staples.com in addition to Dell.com. “Dell’s new cloud connected C2665dnf printer is changing the way we think about printing and document workflow,” Eric Cayton, Director, Divisional Merchandise Manager for Printing, Staples, Inc. “We are excited to add these new printers that offer cloud solutions through Staples.com website, and look forward to our partnership in this growing market.”
