London, August, 2009: New Fast Mono A4 printers provides compact, easy-to-use ‘convenience colour’ option

“In the current tough economic climate, like their larger competitors micro businesses are having to maintain tight control of expenditure,” says Elia Giovanni, European Product Marketing Manager, OKI Printing Solutions. “Yet at the same time, the need to maintain visibility and promote their business effectively has never been greater.”

In response, OKI Printing Solutions has looked closely at what users in this market require from a printer. The result is that the entry-level C110 and C130n deliver the functionality they demand – including, for example, fast mono speeds, high quality output and flexible connectivity - at a highly competitive price within reach of the smallest business user.

The C110 and C130n mark OKI Printing Solutions’ first significant entry into a growing sector in which the company is looking to establish significant market share. 

Competitive offering

The stand-alone C110 offers fast mono 19 pages per minute (ppm) and 5ppm colour capability and USB connectivity.  In addition, the C130n offers an increased mono print speed of 20ppm, network connectivity, an option to increase the paper tray capacity, a duplex option and easy-to-read LED display. 

In addressing the increasingly sizeable entry-level colour market, both products incorporate a multi-pass laser engine. “Micro businesses and SOHO users who need to print in colour from time to time – for example to print invoice letterheads – tend to prefer multi-pass products as by far the more cost-effective printing option,” confirms Giovanni. “Colour laser printing is perfect for this kind of output, while mono laser printing will remain the primary need for the typical small office.”

The C110 and C130n represent highly competitive new entrants to this market as fast mono A4 desktop products, combining the convenience of a colour facility with other established OKI benefits of ease-of-use, small footprint and affordability, backed by OKI’s unrivalled service support quality.

This includes a three-year warranty for which purchasers simply have to register on-line.  “This market-leading move reflects the confidence we have in the robustness of the C110 and C130n,” says Giovanni, “and will give small businesses complete peace of mind that they will maintain maximum availability of their business-critical in-house printing capability.”  

Greener printing

Importantly, in addressing the broader demand for more environmentally-friendly printing solutions, the C110 and the C130n have achieved Energy Star compliance, a US Government-backed programme for businesses and individuals to protect the environment through better energy efficiency.        

“In summary, the C110 and C130n are affordable compact A4 mono and colour printers which ideally meet the needs of the business whose primary requirement is for mono but who is willing to pay a small premium for the ability to print colour occasionally,” confirms Giovanni.
