Canon Shines in the Entry-Level Category
“With the Canon imageRUNNER C3025i, users are getting a highly reliable, easy-to-use, and easy-to-maintain compact device, all of which help users maximize uptime,” said George Mikolay, Associate Director of Copiers/Production for Keypoint Intelligence - Buyers Lab. “The device also produces impressive, high-quality output and is packed with productivity-boosting features, including support for mobile printing and cloud-based services.”
Kyocera Workhorses Keep Offices Productive without Breaking the Bank
“Kyocera’s Pick winners proved to be stellar players from which mid- to large-size businesses will certainly benefit,” said Mikolay. “Outstanding reliability, high quality, and fast speeds coupled with smooth integration with various productivity-enhancing, cost-saving, and security-boosting solutions through HyPAS enablement, all at a lower-than-average price, make them an outstanding value proposition.”
Toshiba Earns Accolades for Its “Green” Commitment with Latest Generation Model
“For any organization committed to maintaining ‘green’ work ethos, Toshiba’s latest generation model, the e-STUDIO3508LP, is worth a look,” said Mikolay. “The ability to render content printed with erasable blue toner transparent, and reuse and erase paper up to five times (or more) within a single eco hybrid integrated system, is truly unique and innovative in the marketplace. What’s more, the unit’s dual-toner system provides added flexibility for users so that higher value documents can be printed using black toner.”
Xerox Brings Outstanding Usability and Reliability to Small to Mid-Size Workgroups
“Xerox’s Pick winners excel far beyond the needs of everyday office workflow,” said Mikolay. “The devices provide an incredibly user-friendly experience thanks to a tablet-style interface with slide/swipe navigation, not to mention access to ConnectKey apps from the Xerox App Gallery to speed up and simplify everyday tasks. And excellent reliability, easy-to-replace supplies, and outstanding feedback all but eliminate extended downtime for service.”
