The OEM won Buyers Laboratory (BLI) awards for its printers, MFPs and scanners.
ITWeb reported on the awards from BLI, which is said to be the “leading provider of intelligence on the document imaging and software solutions industry”, with Brother winning five ‘Summer 2016 Pick Awards’ “based on rigorous evaluation”. BLI’s Director of Office Equipment Product Analysis, Marlene Orr, stated that the OEM’s new monochrome printers and MFPs “are built with the business user in mind, providing outstanding reliability, high-quality output, affordability and an intuitive design that boosts worker productivity”.
The MFC-L5000 series of MFPs and the HL-L5000 series of printers were awarded, with Orr adding that these “are a great choice for small workgroups, thanks to their compact yet robust design and competitive to lower-than-average cost of ownership”. The MFC-L6900 and HL-L6400 in particular were said to be “true workhorse models, offering excellent reliability with no slowdowns during peak usage”, as well as other advantages.
These included “class-leading paper capacity and long-life consumables for greater cost savings and reduced environmental impact”, and Brother South Africa’s Marketing Manager Dale del Villiers commented that “we are extremely honoured to receive these awards. Brother continuously makes efforts to pursue improvements and product innovation to provide superior value to customers”.
