DSales (UK) launches easy to use Develop colour multifunctionals

DSales the UK distributor for the Develop range of copier printers, has launched the Develop ineo+ 454e/554e multifunctionals designed to streamline document workflows. An intuitive operating concept, modelled on a smartphone or tablet, ensures ease of use and the customisable panel saves users lots of time in everyday document jobs. The systems deliver top quality output in colour or black and white at 45 or 55 A4 pages per minute respectively.

It is in terms of productivity throughput that the ineo+ 454e/554e really score. Users can customise the operating screen for the job functions they use most regularly saving a lot of time setting up printing, copying, scanning and faxing operations. The nine inch full colour touchscreen of the operating display will feel instantly familiar to smartphone or tablet users thanks to multi-touch operations such as flick, drag and drop or pinch in and out. Users can simply finger swipe their way through the menu and will get to grips with the system in no time at all thanks to the intuitive operating concept.

A newly designed menu navigation structure allows all functions to be viewed in one go, while the settings a user wants can be selected with just a few clicks. The most useful customisation feature is that frequently used functions can be left on the start screen and ones that are hardly ever used removed. The display is as big as a tablet PC, easy to read and clearly arranged. What's more, the sensible use of pop-ups means users will not get lost in confusing submenus. Since navigating the menu is simplicity itself users will find the machine's printing, copying, scanning and faxing functions easy to use. With the panel customised to suit individual document production habits, such routine jobs can be done much more efficiently.

When choosing a multifunctional, it is becoming increasingly important to look at its environmental credentials. Here, the ineo+ 454e/554e score on energy efficiency. They are designed specifically to minimise power consumption and tests have shown that typical weekly electricity consumption (TEC value) is very low at 2.94 WKh week for the ineo+ 454e. In addition the ineo+ 454e/554e automatically delete blank pages to avoid unnecessary printing or copying, and wasted toner and paper.

The ineo+ 454e/554e can handle a wide range of media including paper formats from A6 to SRA3 or user defined formats and banners of up to 1.2 metres in length. The numerous finishing options include booklets of up to 80 pages, letters folded in various ways, handouts stapled and invoices hole-punched. The ineo+ 454e/554e enables most print jobs to be produced in-house saving time and money.

Commenting on the ineo+ 454e/554e, Jonathan Whitworth, Managing Director of DSales (UK) said, “We know from speaking to customers that most copy and print jobs are short runs where ease of use is a more important consideration than raw production speed. That’s why the ineo+ 454e/554e have been designed to be extremely simple to use, with a customisable panel so job set-ups can be accessed easily for high productivity. The large tablet like screen is easy and intuitive to use making the ineo+ 454e/554e the perfect workmates for any demanding environment.”
