Brother Expands INKvestment Printer Line
Tuesday, October 18, 2016
Brother International Corp. is expanding its INKvestment line of color inkjet all-in-one printers to deliver convenient printing with a low total cost of ownership (TCO). The latest additions to Brother's line of INKvestment printers, the MFC-J5830DW and MFC-J6535DW, are designed specifically to meet the needs of small businesses or small offices and combine high-quality printing, cloud services and mobile functionality, coupled with an intuitive user interface. Effortless to implement and use, INKvestment printers enable business owners to spend less time on day-to-day operations and more time focusing on business goals. Equipped with up to two years' worth of ink in the box, Brother's MFC-J5830DW XL and MFC-J6535DW XL INKvestment printers also ease the worry of running out of ink.
Small businesses depend on efficient products to help them increase productivity, and the new MFC-J5830DW and MFC-J6535DW are designed to be easy to use, fast, reliable and affordable. Brother's new INKvestment all-in-one devices help address challenges faced by small businesses including the high cost of printing and the inconvenience of running out of ink. Small businesses can spend less money for more pages with INKvestment printers and cartridges — black prints for less than a penny and color prints for less than a nickel each. INKvestment super high-yield cartridges deliver approximately 3,000 pages for black and 1,500 pages for color prints.
According to the 2016 Brother Business Survey, 43 percent of small businesses use a printer, on average, 10 or more times per day. For customers with large print volumes, the XL versions include additional ink cartridges in the box, helping eliminate the need to purchase ink for up to two years.
These printers offer the features and functionality a growing business needs including cloud and mobile connectivity, a sturdy and reliable device, and dedicated phone support for the life of the product. They are designed to print ledger-size documents, and the MFC-J6535DW also offers the flexibility to copy and scan ledger-size documents directly on the glass.
Two supplementary models, the MFC-J5930DW and MFC-J6935DW, also include an additional paper tray for added paper-handling flexibility, the convenience of automatic two-sided copying/scanning and NFC connectivity. For small offices and businesses looking for convenient, auto-replenishment of ink, all of the new models are compatible with Amazon Dash Replenishment, helping eliminate the need for last-minute trips to the store.
"The top-of-mind concerns of small businesses when it comes to printers are the cost of ink, cartridge yields and the durability of their printer," said Phil Lubell, senior director of product marketing, Brother International Corp. "This expanded line of Brother INKvestment all-in-ones was developed specifically for small businesses. With its high-quality printing, rich feature package, durable build and low-cost ink cartridges, customers can spend less time worrying about buying ink and more time growing their businesses."
