Xerox Builds on the Power of Colour: New Value-Added Office Products and Tools Make Printing Easier



    TORONTO, May 20 /CNW/ - Xerox Canada's latest collection of office
products and tools take multitasking to a new level - allowing customers to
get more work done faster and easier than ever before. The new products range
from a high-volume colour multifunction printer (MFP) to a
professional-quality colour printer for the office - and tools that deliver
vibrant, accurate colour prints.
    Tailored to meet various business requirements, the new products range
from the Xerox Phaser(R) 7500 colour printer - printing up to 35 colour pages
per minute (ppm), to the Xerox WorkCentre(R) 6400 colour MFP that prints,
copies, scans and faxes. The Xerox WorkCentre(R) 7400 colour MFP series offers
additional features such as an EFI Fiery Network Server, advanced paper
handling and finishing capabilities for booklet making and hole-punching.
    The products build on a heritage in colour printing that has consistently
earned top marks from customers. For the second straight year, Xerox products
were rated "best" overall when compared to competitors such as Canon,
Hewlett-Packard and Ricoh in the 2008 Industry Analysts Inc.'s annual Colour
End-User Survey.
    "Colour by Words," (available in US English version only) a breakthrough
innovation feature of the Phaser 7500, is a colour-matching technology that
answers the customers' need for colour accuracy. Users can select from a
unique menu of words, such as "red apple," "blue sky" or "green grass," to
fine tune the colours they want. With Colour by Words, everyone from a graphic
designer to the part-time PowerPoint warrior can get the right colour and
vibrant prints the first time.
    "We've been hard at work bringing our advanced MFP and printer
technologies to our entire product line, delivering increased productivity to
workgroups of all sizes," said Al Varney, vice president of Marketing, Xerox
Canada Ltd,. "These new desktop products now have the same security features
and workflow ease of use as our console machines."
