New models bring effortless document productivity with enhanced security and simplified connectivity
Sharp today announces the launch of its new Business Workgroup A4 colour MFP series, designed to meet the demands of the modern workplace. With an emphasis on simplified connectivity, the two new models, the MX-C528F and MX-C428F, offer speeds of up to 50ppm, as well as enhanced productivity and robust security, while helping businesses meet their environmental goals.
The next generation A4 MFPs bring the power of Sharp’s award-winning A3 range to its A4 models, further extending Sharp’s eco-system of smart office devices and services to offer a seamless printing solution at a size to meet the needs of any business.
Enhanced connectivity features
Sharp’s new A4 MFPs offer businesses an unprecedented level of flexible connectivity to meet the increasing demands of the modern workplace. Cloud-based working features means that employees across different locations and time zones can collaborate with ease, while wireless LAN connectivity allows for wireless usage without compromising businesses’ security policy. The range of mobile connectivity features ensures that anyone with a smart phone can easily connect and use Sharp MFPs when performing important tasks. In addition, advanced scanning technology enables users faster digitalisation, while modern functionalities help workgroups perform printing tasks with speed, ease, and peace of mind.
A secure print solution
The new models feature industry leading security features to ensure data (both printed and digital) is safe and secure. The integrated Trusted Platform Module (TPM) provides a more secure experience for users by storing hard drive encryption keys on a separate piece of hardware, other than where the data is stored, which adds more layers of protection. SSL Certificate Validation automatically checks that all third-party servers communicating with devices are safe, to prevent any unauthorised or malicious attempts to access information.
Smart functionality and design
MX-C528F and MX-C428F feature a simple and modern user interface which is common across all Sharp MFPs. The new capacitive touch screen allows for multi-touch which is also convenient for the ‘Preview’ functionality. The buttonless tablet-like operational panel, the most common touch point on the MFP, also makes it easier for users to keep the MFP panel clean.
Supporting sustainability goals
Improving environmental credentials is becoming an increasing priority for many businesses. The MX-C528F and MX-C428F offer energy management features to reduce power consumption, whilst meeting environmental responsibilities and complying to European regulations.
Ben Lake, Senior Product Manager at Sharp Europe says: “At Sharp, we recognise that the modern workplace values productivity and simplified connectivity, it is committed to sustainability and is conscious of the threats to the increasing amount of data handled and processed on a daily basis. This is why our new A4 range offers what a business needs now. The shift to hybrid working patterns has created more consideration across every aspect of business, including the size of MFP or printer required, so A4 machines with a smaller footprint are growing in popularity.”
The new models are available to buy now from Sharp and its partners. For more information please visit www.sharp.eu.
