Infotech Lead America: Toshiba America Business Solutions, a provider of managed document services (MDS) and business printing solutions, has introduced its e-STUDIO287cs/347cs/407cs series of multifunction printers (MFPs), suitable for SMBs.
The latest MFPs combine new color feature tools with next generation e-BRIDGE technology to pack in the vibrant print quality and performance levels enjoyed by enterprise environments until now.
Toshiba’s latest e-BRIDGE technology makes it easier for users to easily manage, capture and deliver documents at the swipe of a hand via one-touch function keys on the devices’ nine-inch, tiltable touch control display. This technology offers all the benefits associated with cloud and mobile printing.
Currently, 60 percent of SMBs and mid-market organizations purchase printer hardware and consumables on a transactional basis. By incorporating premier functionality within a compact and durable design, Toshiba’s latest MFPs offer the rich feature-set found in the company’s other e-STUDIO models at a fraction of the cost. SMBs can experience premium print quality and up to 42 pages-per-minute speed to produce more eye-catching brochures, fliers and presentations for their clients at an affordable price.
IDC’s White Paper ‘SMB Buying Considerations for Smarter Business Printing’ shows how green printing is an issue being taken seriously by a number of companies. Toshiba’s latest e-STUDIO line integrates an array of eco options, including a Super Sleep Mode reducing power consumption to just 1.5 watts and the use of low-temperature fusing toner, which also enhances color reproduction. The company’s new MFP line conforms to the latest ENERGY STAR criteria.
Toshiba’s Encompass Analysis provides users with an understanding of their print-related eco footprint while providing solutions to help them reduce environmental impact and increase energy savings.
Toshiba continues to offer customers free, zero waste to landfill recycling through its partnership with Close the Loop. Through CTL, Toshiba accepts all brands of spent toner cartridges.
The e-STUDIO line will work well in SMB environments with limited space due to its lightweight design. It operates quietly. The easily replaceable fuser unit, transfer belt and drum unit makes routine maintenance easy enough for anyone to handle.
The new e-STUDIO line includes a Self-Encrypting Drive featuring Toshiba’s unique Wipe Technology and suite of security features that address information security concerns. If anyone tries to install an e-STUDIO hard disk drive (HDD) into another device, its data will automatically erase.
Toshiba’s e-STUDIO287cs/347cs/407cs series is currently available through authorized Toshiba dealers at prices in the range of $2,899 to $4,499.
