DSales launches new Develop high-performance colour multifunctionals

DSales (UK) Ltd, the UK distributor for the Develop range of copier-printers, has launched the Develop ineo+ 654e/754e multifunctional systems designed to improve productivity throughput in demanding environments such as centralised print departments and also for the pay-for-print commercial sector. The systems deliver top-quality output of up to 60 A4 ppm in colour and 65 or 75 A4 ppm in black and white and feature a new user interface for intuitive operation.

The smartphone, tablet like multi-touch operator display panel features pinch-in/pinch-out functionality allowing users to zoom into documents to check content. Another feature enhancement is drag-and-drop so documents stored on the ineo+ 654e/754e hard drive can be easily moved to the required function for printing or sending to e-mail; FTP or SMP destinations; and even changing the page order or rotating individual pages (if they are the wrong way round) in a scanned document.

Document productivity is also improved by customisation of the operating panel of the ineo+ 654e/754e allowing users to activate certain functions and hide unwanted ones. The most frequently used functions of the ineo+ 654e/754e can be easily arranged on the main panel for instant access. This provides easy management of installed applications or preset workflows. Because pop-up windows open for all function settings, the main panel always remains accessible. This advanced interface design means users no longer need worry about getting lost in a maze of many different function-related screens.

The new ineo+ 654e/754e are adapted to developments in corporate IT environments. For example, documents can be scanned to or printed from external sources such as Sharepoint, Google Apps and Evernote as appropriate connectors can be integrated. It is possible to scan originals to create searchable PDF, docx, pptx and xlsx documents, directly print e-mail attachments and receive incoming faxes as searchable PDF files – a step that would normally have to be carried out at the desktop PC after the document has been scanned. The two new systems can also be integrated into any Cortado ThinPrint environment.

The ineo+ 654e/754e have been specifically designed to minimise power consumption and their typical weekly electricity consumption (TEC value) is very low. The issue of print media inefficiency has also been tackled through functions that automatically delete blank pages to avoid unnecessary printing or copying and thus wasting both toner and paper.

A wide range of media can be used 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.

For DSales (UK) Jonathan Whitworth, Managing Director commented, “These two new high-volume colour systems provide improved document throughput because the intuitive ease of use, coupled with new IT options, simplifies workflow productivity. They are an excellent solution for demanding corporate print environments or for copy shop applications and we anticipate strong sales through our dealer channel.”
