Keypoint Intelligence - Buyers Lab (BLI), the world’s leading independent evaluator of document imaging hardware, software, and services, today announced that Sharp has won BLI’s coveted 2019 Copier MFP Line of the Year award. Given once a year, this award recognizes the vendor whose product line is deemed best overall based on its rigorous laboratory evaluations.
“Sharp’s copier MFPs have long been known for their quality, innovation, and ease of use, and its current line holds up to that standard,” said George Mikolay, Keypoint Intelligence’s Associate Director of Copiers/Production. “In addition to setting the bar for usability among its peers, overall reliability was tremendous throughout the line. In fact, a recent Buyers Lab award given to Sharp for Most Reliable Monochrome Copier MFP Brand 2018-2021 is a testament to the reliability of the company’s products past and present. And with a standard retractable keyboard and feature-rich scan preview, a highly intuitive and customizable control panel (and the Command WorkStation-integrated control panel on machines like the MX-7580N/6580N), seamless edge-to-edge booklet printing on standard 11" x 17" paper, and the innovative, award-winning web utility, building workflows is a cinch for walk-up users, key operators, and IT administrators alike.”
“We are extremely honored to have earned the coveted distinction of Copier MFP Line of the Year from Buyers Lab,” said Shane Coffey, Vice President of Product Management for Sharp Imaging and Information Company of America. “This award, as well as the 12 Pick awards we have earned over the past year for our individual MFP models, emphasize our unwavering dedication to delivering best-in-class solutions that help our customers meet their business needs while delivering high-quality results efficiently, effectively, and securely.”
