As a person that lives and breathes tech, it’s not often that I get surprised by a device—certainly, not by an all-in-one printer. But then, the Lexmark SmartSolution printers are different from any that I’ve encountered. Just as Eye-Fi elevated SD cards and changed digital cameras, Lexmark is changing the way we interact with our printers by making them more versatile, smarter, and easier to use. Plus, they now work amazingly well with Evernote.
A printer with Wi-Fi, touch screen, and apps?
The Lexmark SmartSolution All-in-One printers combine a bunch of great innovations. For one, these printers can cut the cord, bypassing your computer entirely and sending scans directly to web over WiFi. What’s more, these savvy machines can be loaded with apps. So, with one tap of the touch screen, you can send those documents, papers and receipts to that big shiny elephant in the cloud.
Lexmark developed the Scan to Evernote SmartSolution to let you easily send those scans right into your Evernote accounts over WiFi with a single tap. Installation is as simple as getting an app on your phone; you just choose Evernote from the Lexmark SmartSolutions site, go through a quick setup, and within seconds your printer has it. That’s it. Then, as with everything you put into Evernote, those scans will instantly become accessible from any phone or computer you use.
As a special bonus, if you happen to live or work with other Evernote users, you can load separate Evernote SmartSolutions for each person. This way, everyone has their own app for their own account.
Or, you can keep it old school
We really like this new web-enabled Evernote SmartSolution, but you can always choose to scan to your computer instead, and then bring the files into Evernote manually.
The Evernote SmartSolution is available for the Lexmark Interact S605, Prestige Pro805 and Platinum Pro905 printers. Check out Lexmark’s SmartSolution blog for more information on the integration and these new devices. While you’re at it, why not order one for yourself.
