Last week, Brother released its latest print solutions for the local medium to large business market.
Matthew Stroud, chief operating officer and director at Brother International NZ, says, “This new colour series offers quality and volume capabilities that meet the needs of today’s businesses. This includes enhanced security features, paper handling, image quality and workflow solutions typically seen in larger, more expensive devices.”
The company has embarked on a process of growing its business from a focus on the consumer retail market to moving into the corporate market..
The new machines offer 100 images per minute scanning and Brother has placed fresh software into the printers to improve quality and ease of operation.
Jared Quartermain, SMB channel manager at Brother, says, ““The new printers offer duplex colour and monochrome printing of up to 31ppm as well as fastest in its class automatic 2-sided (duplex) scanning at up to 100ipm. The new series printers offer a cost-effective and robust solution for small to medium business environments.
“We know they are in an office environment so we have reduced their noise levels from 56 to 42 decibels. The build quality has also become more solid and robust.
“A new high density toner creates a more vivid image and reduces banding. It offers a sharper and more vibrant image. From competing in the scanning market we learned the needs of our customers. For general office scanning these devices are more fit for purpose than anything we had in the past.
“Ultimately, what we are trying to achieve is higher uptime. We have created these machines from what we see as our customer’s needs.”
Stroud adds, “This next generation of printers and all-in-ones deliver durability, scalability, security and high‐impact colour laser printing at an extremely low total cost of ownership. This further demonstrates Brother’s commitment to providing business‐class document technology that is typically associated with larger devices. On top of that, all our devices are backed by Brother’s superior New Zealand support and service.”
In New Zealand, Brother has a partnership with Konica Minolta.
