What would it mean for your office if you could simply speak commands to your printer, instead of pushing buttons and navigating menus?

If yours is like thousands of businesses across the world, it would enjoy increased productivity, enhanced ease-of-use, and greatly enhanced accessibility options for people who need them thanks to Xerox’s Gabi Voice, an artificial workplace assistant that accepts natural language commands to instruct your printer to do anything it could without it.

In today’s post, we’ll be discussing what exactly Gabi is, how it works, and how it can benefit your business by enhancing your Xerox technology. We’ll also cover how to learn more from the helpful staff at Professional Document Solutions.

Let’s dive in with the basics:

Gabi is an acronym for Global Artificial Business Intelligence. If you’ve ever worked with AI-powered assistants like Siri, Alexa, or Google Home, you already know what you’re in for—although Xerox’s Gabi has some significant improvements and is specifically tailored to function with your Xerox multifunction printer.

Xerox is powered in large part by IBM’s Watson technology, which you may recall as the first artificial intelligence that won the television game show Jeopardy! back in 2011.

Watson has been vastly improved in the years since then, and Gabi benefits from those enhancements, allowing it to “understand” so-called natural language commands. What this means is that you can speak the commands to your printer in ways that a human would be likely understand—“make two copies of this” or “email a copy of this to Bob.”

For those businesses rightfully concerned about data privacy, know that Xerox has you in good hands. When you activate Gabi using the wake word “Gabi,” the system begins listening for your input. This input is securely transmitted to Xerox and IBM servers for interpretation using strong data encryption. You can learn more about the industry-leading security standards used by Xerox Gabi in this official report from Xerox (PDF link). No data is saved server-side.

Ways Gabi Can Enhance Your Workplace With Printer Voice Commands

If your business needs to be 508c compliant, Gabi Voice is a great way to do so. While the interface on Xerox multifunction printers is intuitive and easy to use, it’s hard to deny that sometimes simply speaking the commands out loud can be faster and more efficient. In addition to compliance requirements, Gabi voice enables your staff to enjoy faster, more efficient, and easier operation of your Xerox technology.

From an employee training standpoint, Gabi voice makes life a lot easier. No more manuals or memorizing commands—employees without technology training of any kind can still operate your multifunction printer with ease, including for complex tasks. Simply “tell” Gabi what it is that needs to be done, and it happens.

The Gabi Voice kit is so easy to set up, anyone can do it. No professional installation is necessary, as the kit includes the Gabi Smartbox, a speaker, and a power adapter. That’s it. Once everything is connected, Gabi will start working for you.
