Small offices, home offices and SMEs will now enjoy efficiency in their businesses thanks to the newly launched range of laser printers which come enabled with Wi-Fi and Near Field Communication (NFC) technology designed to reduce paper and power costs while enhancing efficiency at the workplace and minimizing the cost of printing.
The launch is meant to aid in growth of small and medium businesses by reducing their operation costs especially in light of the country’s current economic situation. The five printer models include: C460W Colour Multifunctional Printer, C1810W Colour Printer, SL-M2020, and SL-M2020W Mono Printers and the SL-M2070 Mono Multifunctional Printer.
Today, businesses are cost conscious as they look for ways to maximize their profits. Samsung has therefore included unique features such as Plug & Play and Eco Mode which ease printing by eliminating the headache of installing print drivers and enhance cost-saving by reducing the amount of energy used to print. By simply pressing the Eco Mode button on the multi-function printers, users can print more onto every page.
The Plug-n-Play capability – unique to Samsung printers – eliminates the need to install print drivers by enabling automatic driver installation once a user connects the device to a computer, laptop or tablet. This feature is supported by Android, iOS, and Windows, allowing users on different operating systems to plug in and use with ease.
This range of printers also comes with longer lasting toner capacity which, combined with other features such as the polymerized toner, offers users a competitive total cost of ownership. The polymerized toner contains a mix of latex and wax that lowers energy usage and gives a yield of up to 50 per cent more than other types of toner, lasting longer than average toners and enabling users to print on more sheets of paper.
With the NFC capability, users can print from their phones by simply tapping the printer on the phone screen by pairing it with the device then printing. Users will not need a direct Wi-Fi access point to print, by only pressing WPS button on the printer; it will broadcast itself to compatible devices, connect and easily print.
The devices come with separate toner and drum allowing the user to replace toner at least three times before the drum is replaced. For the colour printers Samsung technology offers only one drum and four toners as opposed to the market offering of a drum for each toner, thereby saving the user the cost of three additional drums.
