AMEinfo.com reports on the OEM’s new series of MFPs for the region, which are said to have the “reliable performance of a laser with the colour quality and affordability of inkjet”.
The printers are equipped with an Embedded Web Server and fleet management tool Markvision Enterprise, both of which enable users to monitor and administrate “multiple devices from a central location”, and are also compatible with the Lexmark Mobile Printing App for use with Android, Apple iOS smartphones and tablets to allow printing on demand from any location.
Faster print speeds of up to 21 pages per minute in black and 14 pages per minute in colour are listed as further qualities, along with “the fastest time to first page” compared to other laser devices in its class. The OfficeEdge Pro5500 features a “single pass, duplex, automatic document feeder (ADF)” which has the capacity for 50 sheets of paper that can be printed on both sides “simultaneously”, thus saving on printing time.
Further time and money can be saved through the use of Lexmark’s SmartSolutions software, which can be downloaded onto the printers and is said to streamline “everyday tasks and common workflows”. Lexmark is also introducing 12 new Multifunction Workflows that “execute multiple tasks through the simple press of a button”, including “Email & Save to Network” amd “Copy, Email & Save to Computer”.
The OfficeEdge Series ink cartridges, manufactured from plastic containing “post-consumer recycled content”, have been noted to be “eligible for the Lexmark Collection Program (LCCP)”, allowing them to be returned to the company for recycling at no cost.
Mathias Militzer, Lexmark Middle East General Manager, commented: “The tremendous business-class capabilities we’ve integrated into our new business inkjets, along with a compelling value proposition, make them viable alternatives for demanding, heavy use workgroups.”
He continued: “Our customers working in shared use environments, such as doctor offices and branch banks, will find that the OfficeEdge Series is an ideal choice for managing their workflows and professional-quality colour documents.”
