Printer: Business-Focused Features Help Small Workgroups Boost Productivity
Brother International Corporation has launched its new HL-L8000 series color laser printers and MFC-L8000 color laser all-in-ones, designed to offer mobile-friendly, fast color printing for small workgroups in small to medium sized businesses (SMBs).
To help SMBs keep their printing budgets in line, Brother has priced these models with printers starting at $349.99(1) and all-in-ones starting at $529.99(1). Brother has also included a number of money-saving features including the availability of high-yield replacement toner cartridges(2) to further reduce cost per page, Secure Function Lock to limit accessibility to help regulate paper and toner use, and automatic duplex (two-sided) printing to help reduce paper consumption. Making use of these cost-saving features can help businesses save up to 60% by printing their color documents in house(3).
The printers (HL-L8250CDN, HL-L8350CDW, and HL-L8350CDWT) and the all-in-ones (MFC-L8600CDW, MFC-L8850CDW) help SMBs by offering fast color and black print speeds up to 32ppm, as well as wireless printing from leading smartphones and tablets(4) via AirPrint(TM), Google Cloud Print(TM), the free Brother(TM) iPrint&Scan app, Wi-Fi Direct®, and Cortado Workplace.
The all-in-ones add copying and faxing, as well as an intuitive color TouchScreen display that makes navigating the machine's functionality quick and easy. Both all-in-one models feature web connectivity(5) via the Brother Web Connect Interface, to allow businesses to scan materials directly to leading cloud storage services, including DROPBOX, BR-DOCS, EVERNOTE®, GOOGLE DRIVE(TM), ONENOTE®, ONEDRIVE®, and more(5).
They also feature advanced scanning features typically reserved for standalone scanners, including background removal(6) for clear scans, blank page skip(6) and ID scan,(6) as well as scanning to a variety of destinations such as FTP, Secure FTP, Microsoft® SharePoint®(6), e-mail server(7), and more. The MFC-L8850CDW adds two-sided scanning and copying that helps to save time by capturing both sides of a page in a single pass.
The full line of ENERGY STAR® Qualified printers and all-in-ones also offer energy-saving Auto Off Mode, as well as a Deep Sleep Mode that uses less than 1W for printers and less than 2W for all-in-ones to help reduce energy consumption and costs.
"We're proud to offer these new color laser printers and all-in-ones to our valued SMB customers," said Steve Feldstein, Brother Director of Marketing for SMB laser products. "When you consider their robust feature sets and competitive price points, their value becomes abundantly apparent," he added. "With fast print speeds, versatile connectivity options, mobile device printing, and flexible paper handling, they're perfect for businesses looking for a dedicated color machine to maximize productivity in small workgroup environments."
