Drive Control Corporation (DCC) is now stocking the Lexmark OfficeEdge Pro4000 and OfficeEdge Pro5500 colour multifunction printers (MFPs). Both all-in-one printers are part of Lexmark’s popular OfficeEdge range and are ideally suited to their Small Medium Enterprise (SME) target market, whilst also offering enterprise functionality.
These competitively priced printers offer an all-in-one solution for businesses that require cost-effective, yet high quality, volume printing. With a 50 per cent lower cost on laser-quality printing (10 cents a page for black and white prints and 11 cents a page for colour printing), as well as rapid scanning and printing, both the Pro4000 and the Pro5500 offer a fast, efficient and cost-saving office solution. Tested for heavy-duty printing, both printers can handle high volumes of printing and have an optional second tray, making loading extra paper easy. High-yield ink cartridges save on office supply replacements and also reduce the printer’s carbon footprint.
“One of the top five features of both the Pro4000 and the Pro5500 is wireless printing. This offers the convenience of printing from anywhere within the network environment,” says Tyrone Malan, Lexmark Product Specialist at DCC. “Printing speeds are also faster than most similarly priced colour laser multifunction printers (MFPs) at 21 black pages per minute and 14 colour pages per minute.”
“Another great feature is that both printers are Markvision Enterprise Compatible. This software acts as a diagnostic tool by monitoring ink levels, trouble-shooting and reducing customer downtime by sending e-mail alerts to the IT manager.”
Ease of use and functionality are also key features and the Pro4000 and Pro5500 have PCL and PostScript support, making them easy to integrate into an existing IT system. With a USB port enabling walk-up printing from several formats, including PDF and JPEG, and Ethernet and Wireless-N supporting flexible networking and multi-user workgroups, the Pro4000 and Pro5500 are truly built for business.
Although both printers share the same basic specs, there are some differences. To increase productivity and efficiency the Pro4000 comes with time-saving 1-touch shortcuts such as scan to e-mail, and scans rapidly at around five seconds per page with a 50 page automatic document feeder.
The Pro5500s intuitive touch screen has an easy-to-navigate menu, showing users what they need when they need it. The 50-page duplex automatic document feeder scans both sides of a page in less than five seconds. Time-saving software applications for scan to e-mail, scan to PDF, scan to network and multifunction workflows are easily downloadable, saving time and money.
