OKI expands its portfolio of Smart MFPs with MC800 series

Oki Systems has a new range of A3 smart multifunction printers (MFPs) with intelligent, user-friendly features and enhanced functionality. These powerful, smart MFPs provide additional levels of business productivity through sXP (smart Extendable Platform), OKI’s embedded open platform, offering enhanced workflow integration and document management across the business.

Backed by OKI’s three year extended warranty, the MC853 and MC873 smart MFPs offer the reliability of OKI’s pioneering digital LED print technology with the added functionality and performance of more costly and complex copier-based devices, making them a perfect, cost-effective alternative. The devices are well-suited to small to medium sized PSPs (print service providers), as well as in house print rooms.

“Easy to use with fast print speeds, the new MC800 Series is an all in one solution to a wide variety of business needs,” says Andrew Hall, marketing manager, OKI Systems UK. “A sleek new design, user-friendly features and embedded sXP make these new devices ideal for taking control of document intensive processes within small to medium print shops. In addition, they are perfect for supporting day-to-day colour and mono A3 and A4 print requirements.

The new ergonomic design includes a customisable touch screen panel with a lift-up mechanism which moves with the device, making it easy for users to follow the menu screen. Businesses can programme their own popular print and copy jobs as individual function commands. The user-friendly smart MFPs also feature a comprehensive guided help function, two output bins and convenience stapling as standard.

With print speeds of up to 35 pages per minute (ppm) and scan speeds of 50 impressions per minute (ipm), together with OKI’s A3 LED scanner, the smart MFP delivers fast, efficient performance. All models are Google Cloud Print ready and AirPrint ready. Additionally document intensive tasks are made more agile with ABBYY FineReader Sprint OCR (Optical Character Recognition) software, a downloadable PC/Mac desktop application that is available free of charge to OKI smart MFP customers. This powerful software enables users to quickly and easily convert paper documents, as well as PDF files and images, into editable and searchable text in 190 different languages.

The MC853 and MC873 can be used to manage documents with SENDYS Explorer LITE, a server based software available to OKI smart MFP customers at no additional cost and offers users the ability to capture documents from various sources and convert, distribute or upload them to a chosen location, providing greater flexibility to edit, access, print, retrieve and share files.

The new MC800 series is integrated circuit (IC) smart card reader ready for flexible user management, secure printing and managing print jobs. Fax is included as standard and OKI’s three year warranty is offered at no extra cost when the product is registered within 30 days of purchase.

“Today’s organisations need intelligent, reliable devices that offer the flexibility to manage a range of different tasks” adds Hall. “The new MC800 series of smart MFPs enable SMBs to really take control of their document workflow and support a broad spectrum of requirements.”
