Brother International, a leader in home and business IT peripherals that focuses on the ‘Customer-First’ approach, has introduced an all-new Full A3 Multi-Function Centre Series for small and medium-sized businesses. The 2 models in the series, the MFC-J3930DW and the MFC-J3530DW support high print volumes with excellent total cost of ownership.

“Brother’s new Multi-Function Centre Series has been engineered for business use. Both models in the series are versatile, reliable and robust, which is ideal for small and medium-sized businesses with large print volume requirements,” says Dale de Villiers, Marketing Manager at Brother South Africa. “Brother, a leader in the A3 inkjet segment in South Africa, has positioned these fast and easy-to-use business printers at cost effective price points, enabling more businesses to experience Brother solutions designed and manufactured to high standards of quality.”

Brother has addressed business needs in developing the new Multi-Function Centre Series, focusing on fast print speeds, a low cost per page, and outstanding print quality, in addition to improved paper handling and better durability. With Full A3 size supported, businesses have the flexibility to showcase their work in large formats, without losing any details.

Fastest in its class*

Spend more time on managing the business, and less on waiting for prints. Brother’s latest series is fast at up to 22 images per minute*** (ipm) for black and 20 ipm for colour, and a First Print Out Time (FPOT) of just six seconds. In Fast Mode, speeds pick up to a maximum of 35 pages per minute (ppm)^.

Cost effective from day one

Keep printing costs down with Brother’s super high yield cartridges. Each cartridge lasts up to 3,000^^ pages (black) and 1,500^^ pages (colour), providing a very competitive cost per page. An Ink Save Mode helps to save on ink consumption as well.

Premium business-quality output

Create eye-catching documents and presentations with the new Multi-Function Centres. Printing with Brother’s new pigment-based inks results in highly professional business documents with crisp details, sharp text, true-to-life colours and denser blacks. The fast-drying prints are water and fade-resistant, with colours that stay vibrant over the long term.

Designed for ease of use

Complete assignments quickly with the intuitively-designed Multi-Function Centres. Print jobs and printer functions are easily accessible with the 9.3cm colour LCD touchscreen^^^. Integrated Ethernet and wireless support allow all devices to be connected to the machine for added convenience. Photographs† can even be printed directly from USB flash memory.

Productivity with more paper handling

Focus more on the work without the need to refill paper trays constantly. The standard paper tray holds up to 250 sheets, while the multi-purpose tray can handle up to 100 sheets^^^. Expand paper capacity with a lower paper tray that provides an additional 250 sheets, giving businesses a maximum paper capacity of 600 sheets^^^.

Mobile and cloud connectivity

The series is compatible with a wide range of mobile and cloud print and scan solutions including Brother’s iPrint&Scan, Apple AirPrint, Mopria and Google Cloud Print, which work directly from the mobile device. Brother’s award-winning WebConnect‡ technology also allows businesses to interact with Facebook as well as popular cloud storage services such as Dropbox, One Drive, and Google Drive.

Lasting reliability

Brother’s Multi-Function Centres maintain the same quality performance over the long run. They are constructed for robust use with durable materials and enhanced components, resulting in machine life of up to 100,000 prints.
