Fuji Xerox Australia launches new campaign for the new 'Smart Work Enabler' via MercerBell

Fuji Xerox Hero Image.jpgA striking Rubik's cube style head is the central image of an integrated campaign from MercerBell for the launch of Fuji Xerox Australia's "Smart Work Enabler".

The new multifunction office solution from Xerox uses facial recognition, instead of a swipe card or password login, and allows users to share and print documents remotely via smartphones and tablets.

Says David Bell, ECD at MercerBell: "The head is closely connected to Fuji Xerox Australia's purpose of helping people to work smarter, and communicates on several levels.

"On a simple level, the image speaks about the many features and benefits such as facial recognition, motion sensing start up and quiet operation. At a deeper level it promises the user an enhanced level of performance and empowerment, to be able to work smarter, do more and share more."
Says Simon Lane, chief marketing officer for Fuji Xerox Australia: "Fuji Xerox is striving to be a customer-centric solution innovator and this campaign reflects our aim to empower people within their workplaces to work smarter so they can focus on their core business."

MercerBell worked closely with creative image production company, Electric Art, to assemble the head using multiple photos taken from dozens of angles. The facial components reflect the different Asia-Pacific markets where the campaign will run.

The integrated campaign includes digital, radio, press, out-of-home and point-of-sale executions.

Oh no. That's a horrible steal. Why post that you're a total thieving hack?

Robbery of the worst degree. Why would I need facial recognition anyway it's faster to punch in a pin?

Headline.
Do things differently

Execution.
Copy someone else and post rationalise.

This won't sell photocopiers or win awards on that basis.
