Lexmark International has introduced an entire new line of colour laser multifunction products (MFPs) to help businesses get more done with colour.
"Leading businesses around the world have benefited from improved processes and reduced costs with Lexmark's award-winning monochrome multifunction technology," says Marty Canning, Lexmark vice-president and president of its Printing Solutions and Services Division. "With this new line, customers now have more ways to leverage the power of colour and our proven workflow solutions from the same device."
Lexmark's new colour laser MFP line-up features five new products: the Lexmark X782e, X940e and X945e for business workgroups, and the Lexmark X500n and X502n for small businesses and desktop users.
The Lexmark X782e, X940e and X945e deliver outstanding print quality and feature reliable performance to meet the demands of busy workgroups. Customers can use these workhorses to print colour on a wide variety of documents, including difficult media like heavy card stock and vinyl labels and specialty papers like weather- and fade-resistant outdoor media and oversized banners. Customers can also save time and money by using these devices to print brochures, signage and invitations in house.
The Lexmark X782e, X940e and X945e feature Lexmark's award-winning eTask colour touch screen interface, which can be customised to simplify complicated processes to the touch of an icon. This interface drives Lexmark's industry-specific workflow solutions, which are designed to help customers in industries like retail, banking, health care, government, manufacturing and education improve paper-based processes.
For example, within the banking industry, Lexmark has helped customers develop solutions that simplify the loan application process to a single icon on Lexmark's eTask interface, reducing the completion time from days to hours. With Lexmark's new line of colour laser MFPs, those customers can drive the same process improvements on a device that can also be used to print professional colour brochures and fliers, helping drive additional sales for the bank.
The Lexmark X782e prints at A4 speeds of 33 pages per minute (ppm) in colour and 38 ppm in monochrome for an estimated street price of R 33 999*. The Lexmark X940e offers print speeds up to 30 ppm in colour and 40 ppm in monochrome, as well as A3 ledger or tabloid printing capabilities and extensive finishing options such as folding and booklets for R 91 000.
For customers that need even more powerful performance, the Lexmark X945e prints at speeds up to 40 ppm in colour and 45 ppm in monochrome for R 109 000.
For smaller businesses and workgroups, the Lexmark X500n and X502n desktop colour laser MFPs feature impressive quality, speed and features for prices starting at R 5 499*. The Lexmark X500n and X502n are ideal for businesses that want to save money by consolidating devices and need affordable access to high-quality colour printing, copying and scanning.
The Lexmark X500n offers print, copy and scan capabilities and the best price performance in its class, printing at A4 speeds up to 8 ppm in colour and 31 ppm in monochrome. It has the fastest processor and the fastest time to first print in its class. For customers who frequently copy multi-page colour jobs, the X500n also features a 35-sheet automatic document feeder. The Lexmark X502n adds fax capabilities and is available for an estimated street price of R 7 099.
All five products will be available through Lexmark's channel partners.
