Toshiba MFPs are producing essentials including syllabi, study materials, tests and in-class presentations for UMass’ more than 73,000 students.
Sustainability is a core focus of UMass and an attribute for which they’re widely recognized. Toshiba is helping the University on that front by recycling toner consumables. Toshiba moreover designs its MFPs to print on 100% recycled paper.
