TORONTO, Sept. 22 /CNW/ - Xerox Canada today introduced two new desktop
multifunction printers (MFPs) that offer high-end scanning and fax
capabilities at an affordable price. The new Phaser(R) 3300MFP multifunction
printer and the WorkCentre(R) 4260MFP multifunction printer, help trim the
amount of time workers spend handling documents and managing information.
Priced at $649 in Canada, the Phaser 3300MFP delivers printing, copying,
scanning and colour faxing capabilities. With print and copy speeds up to
30 pages per minute (ppm), it's faster and can handle more pages per month
than other products in its class, including the comparably priced
Hewlett-Packard LaserJet M2727nf MFP. High capacity toner cartridges and a
toner-saving mode also help busy offices reduce running costs.
With the ability to scan in colour and black-and-white directly to a USB
thumb drive, e-mail or the network, documents can be easily shared with
co-workers or stored. The Phaser 3300MFP is also equipped with Xerox's Scan to
PC Desktop(R) software, which allows users to send a document from the MFP
straight to their PC desktop for viewing, editing and storing.
The multifunction printer can also tackle a range of everyday office
print jobs including automatic two-sided printing. It has a 50-sheet
multipurpose tray that can handle a wide variety of paper weights and sizes
ranging from postcards to legal-size documents.
For offices looking for more muscle, the WorkCentre 4260 multifunction
printer is packed with advanced features and starts at $3,599. The WorkCentre
4260 is Xerox's fastest desktop multifunction system with print and copy
speeds up to 55 ppm - a rate that makes it nearly 20 percent faster than HP's
LaserJet M4345 MFP.
"Quick, reliable technology is key for the small and mid-sized business,"
said Al Varney, vice president, Marketing, Xerox Canada Ltd. "These products
bring the capabilities of our high-end multifunction printers to the lower end
of our portfolio to help businesses of all sizes better manage their workloads
and document management processes."
The WorkCentre 4260 delivers powerful workflow tools at an affordable
price. With ID Card Copy, workers save time when copying both sides of an ID
or insurance card onto one side of a page. ID Card Copy is especially helpful
in healthcare organizations when adding information to patient files. Fax
Forward to E-mail saves time and paper by automatically routing incoming faxes
to an e-mail address. The WorkCentre 4260 also comes with automatic two-sided
printing and the Save Print Feature lets users store frequently used documents
and forms on the hard drive for fast printing anytime.
The WorkCentre 4260's multitasking capabilities allow multiple workers to
print, copy, scan and fax at the same time. If one print job is held up
because of a lack of resources, such as needing legal-sized paper, the Print
Around feature makes sure other print jobs will continue without interruption,
saving workers from unnecessary downtime. In addition, the WorkCentre 4260
comes with a seven-inch color graphical touch screen that is simple to use and
not typically found on this class of product.
Other updates to the office portfolio
To help SMBs do more with their colour documents, the WorkCentre 5225
black-and-white multifunction printer now includes a colour scanning
configuration. The WorkCentre 5225 prints up to 25 ppm and offers Xerox's
Extensible Interface Platform (EIP), which allows independent software vendors
and developers to create applications for the device and to customize the
In addition, Xerox has upgraded the software on its WorkCentre 5600
black-and-white multifunction series to keep pace with today's ever-changing
IT standards and protocols. With support for IPv6 and compatibility for
Microsoft's Web Services on Devices (WSD), the WorkCentre 5600 series - with
speeds ranging from 32 ppm to 87 ppm - becomes even more powerful for IT
