"Technology excellence is at the heart of what Xerox does, and winning these awards is particularly gratifying as they encapsulate highly prized recognition from industry peers," says Ernest Leong, Xerox product manager Office Systems Group at Bytes Document Solutions, sole authorised distributor of Xerox products and solutions to 24 sub-Saharan countries.
Xerox holds more than 16 000 US patents and is ranked as one of the world's top technology innovators. It operates research and technology centres in the US, Canada and Europe where work and research is conducted in the fields of colour science, computing, systems, novel materials and other disciplines connected to its expertise in printing and document management.
US computer bi-weekly PC Magazine awarded the Phaser 6360DN colour laser printer the editor's choice recognition in May 2007 with a four out of five rating. The machine was complimented on its performance, easy set-up and network installation, with the editor saying "the 6360DN's combination of quality, speed, paper-handling and price earns it the editor's choice slot for its category, as a worthy successor to the 6350DN".
Bertl is an international research organisation that analyses and recognises leading devices and software solutions in the annual Bertl's best awards. Out of the hundreds of devices it reviews, only a small number qualify for the four star highly recommended rating. This rating is strictly reserved for those devices that deliver a range of business critical features and functions that are above average and provide potential buyers with a good return on investment. Bertl awarded three
of Xerox's products, the Phaser 6180DN and 8560 and the WorkCentre 4150, this rating.
Better Buys for Business is an independent buyers' guide for office equipment. Its mission is to help buyers make smarter purchasing decisions. All three products in the Xerox WorkCentre 4150 range, including the S,X and XF, received the acclaimed editor's choice award for 2007 and are described as productive multifunctionals offering a range of options and excellent speed required by a busy workgroup.
Buyers Laboratory Inc is an independent office products test laboratory and business consumer advocate. It awarded the Xerox WorkCentre 4150XF the pick of the year 2006 award and the 2006 highly recommended reliability award. It complimented the machine for being an outstanding mid-size workgroup console monochrome multifunction printer and for its exemplary performance throughout its extensive laboratory testing.
