Brother UK is launching two new ranges of business inkjet printers in a bid to help channel partners capitalise on a market which has grown 7% year-on-year*.
The six new models, targeted at SMB and SOHO end-users, offer low cost, reliable and efficient printing.
The J5000 series is made up of compact A4-sized machines with A3 colour print capabilities. The J6000 range includes A3 models which offer colour A3 printing and scanning, cementing Brother's position as market leader in the A3 business inkjet category.
The ICT services provider has introduced the models to help SMBs increase print efficiency with fastest-in-class FPOT (fastest page out time) and FCOT (fastest copy out time) – as low as six seconds.
Models are durable and reliable, meaning they can withstand busy office environments with lots of different users. All machines have redesigned print heads and improved paper trays to prevent jams.
The machines use high-yield cartridges to ensure print costs are kept to a minimum, and also offer better mono and colour print quality through Pigment Ink technology.
Both ranges feature a host of built-in cloud and mobile connectivity options, including Google Cloud print and AirPrint as well as Brother's own iPrint & Scan app, supporting businesses with collaborative working. The two new flagship machines, the MFC-J5930DW and MFC-J6935DW, have PCL and NFC card authentication for pull printing, ideal for network environments.
Andy Johnson, Head of Product Management at Brother UK, said: "We see real opportunities for partners in the business inkjet market – its growth in the past year is a sign of things to come.
"Feedback from SMBs tells us they're looking for cost-effective machines which they can trust to deliver, and that also work seamlessly in modern office environments. Machines need to be quick to support fast-paced working cultures and offer a range of connectivity options to integrate with different devices.
"To meet these needs, we updated the existing J5000 and J6000 series with new features such as higher yield supplies – the result being a refreshed range with better running costs."
"As market leaders in this category, we're confident that these inkjets are the best out there to help partners meet the needs of SMB and SOHO end-users."
