SMEs: Invest in a printer that suits your needs and reap the benefits

25 Aug 2015

There is a shift taking place in the printing market, with SMEs moving away from using larger copiers, which are designed for enterprises with a host of expensive features, and instead investing in those that suit their specific needs.

When SMEs choose a product that meets their individual requirements, they no longer have to pay for unnecessary and costly features and capabilities.

Furthermore, as companies such as OKI continue to provide products optimised for smaller businesses that still include enterprise-grade technology, SMEs don’t have to forgo quality when they downsize.

The new A3 OKI range provides many most of the same features and applications of the large copiers but with a much smaller footprint and at a smaller cost, says Paul Francois, OKI NZ product manager. 

The MC800 series combines OKI’s reliable and award-winning digital LED print technology, with the added functionality and performance of more costly and complex copier-based devices.

This ensures high quality print and copy output as well as comprehensive scanning and document management.

The leading product from this series is the MC873 Smart A3 Colour Multifunction Printer.

As a 4-in-1 multifunction printer, with print speeds up to 35ppm, this is ideal for the more demanding business workgroup, according to OKI.

It combines advanced functionality, versatility and document workflow integration, and is designed to perform with high print speeds and efficient use of consumables to help keep costs down.

This smart MFP incorporates automatic double sided copying, printing, scanning and faxing for ease of use and to optimise speed and power usage for additional savings.

OKI's smart Extendable Platform (sXP) allows users to create unique functions to integrate existing document workflows, all via a new seven inch colour LCD touch screen that operates the device and document functions.

Futhermore, the built-in convenience stapler allows stapling post printing, scanning or copying of up to 20 sheets a time.

On top of this, the Super G3 fax has up to 8MB of memory capacity; can send double-sided fax documents from RADF; allows users to forward a fax to another device, network folder or email address; and has the ability to delay transmission with future time.

To ensure the MC873 Smart Multifunction Printers suit a variety of businesses, they come in a range of tray, finisher and cabinet configurations and are future proofed for mobile printing with Google Cloud Print and Apple Air Print.
