BRIDGEWATER, N.J., January 20, 2016 ?? Taking the next, bold step in reinforcing its leadership position in supporting business efficiency and value, Brother International Corporation is introducing a powerful series of monochrome laser printers and All-in-Ones to serve a full range of office, workgroup, and larger-volume print environments.
“Brother continues to deliver durable, reliable, and flexible solutions for business users looking for productivity and cost-effectiveness,” said Steve Feldstein, Brother International Corporation’s Director of Marketing – Business Laser & Scanner Products. “These printers and All-in-Ones represent dependability and reliability –all built on Brother quality.”
The new Brother L5000 and L6000 Series answer critical office workflow needs within a broad range of office environments and industries. Building on previous generations of Brother business laser printers, these new models offer faster print speeds, more flexible paper handling capabilities, advanced scanning capabilities, convenient mobility features, and access to business cloud services.
“Knowing the business user is focused on results, we created this next generation of printers and All-in-Ones to dependably and consistently perform with the features and functionality needed to improve and enhance workflow,” Feldstein notes.
Today’s wireless working environment – both in the office and on the road – demands more mobile flexibility. The Brother L5000 and L6000 Series models connect with most mobile device technologies. In addition, the L5000 and L6000 Series are the first Brother laser models to support Google Cloud Print™ 2.0 – offering businesses a reliable, fast printing solution. These printers also support a wide range of other mobile print technologies, including AirPrint and Mopria.
Most of the machines feature a color Touchscreen display for easy access to the award-winning Brother Web Connect interface to directly print from popular business cloud services, including DROPBOX, GOOGLE DRIVE, BOX and ONEDRIVE. Users can also scan to popular online cloud services including: EVERNOTE, ONENOTE, and more. Other business-focused scanning destinations include SharePoint®, SSH Server (SFTP), Network Folder (CIFS), and more.
The color Touchscreen display on the All-in-Ones also allow for creation of up to 48 customized shortcuts.
For businesses with higher print and scan volumes, Brother is rolling out two cost-effective and business-durable machines: the Brother HL-L6300DWprinter and the MFC-L6800DW All-in-One. Productivity features on these top-end machines include fast printing and copying (up to 48 pages per minute) and a fastest-in-class monochrome scan speed (up to 50 images per minute); plus, single-pass, two-sided monochrome scanning at an impressive up to 100 images per minute.
Additional paper trays are available in 250-sheet or 520-sheet capacities – up to 1,610 sheets total capacity, enabling business more flexibility and expandability based on business need and potential growth. With the addition of a super high-yield 12,000-page replacement toner cartridge, business users may realize lower cost printing and more cost efficiency. Both of these models also help deliver wireless mobile device connectivity including NFC for convenient printing and scanning and network user authentication.
Independent Results: Business-Durability, Customer Satisfaction
Buyers Laboratory (BLI), a widely-respected testing and resource company, has evaluated several of the new Brother models. BLI noted the significant business value of the new machines: “The Brother models offer competitive to lower than average cost of ownership,” stated Marlene Orr, BLI’s Director, Office Equipment Product Analysis.
BLI recognized the machines’ reliability, particularly in high-volume printing. “Even during peak periods, users won’t see any noticeable slowdowns in output speeds,” said Orr. She also noted the ease of use: “The smartphone-like interface on the Touchscreen models reduces the learning curve, and NFC connectivity eliminates guesswork for mobile printing, offers badge authentication, and a quick link to troubleshooting information.” In addition, BLI pointed to robust scan features that boost worker productivity, and simple affordable sharing of content and collaboration in the cloud with Brother Web Connect2.
Brother printers also have been recognized with both PC Magazine’s Business Choice and Readers’ Choice Awards for 2015 for their reliability and customer satisfaction. Brother has been honored with the Business Choice Award three years in a row; this is the seventh straight annual Readers’ Choice recognition.
