Brother MFCs pump up scan rates

Brother International (Aust) Pty Ltd has launched a new series of laser printers and Multi-Function Centres (MFCs). The new Brother L5000 and L6000 Series add advanced scanning capabilities, mobility features and access to business cloud services.

Users can 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 devices have been certified for use with enterprise capture software such as Kofax, Canon Uniflow and IRISPowerscan.

“Knowing the business user is focused on results, we created this next generation of printers and MFCs to dependably and consistently perform with the features and functionality needed to improve and enhance workflow,” said Luke Howard, Brother International Australia’s Commercial Market Development Channel Manager.

This new range includes 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 colour touchscreen display for easy access to the Brother Web Connect interface to directly print from popular business cloud services, including Dropbox, Google Drive, Box, and OneDrive.

Leading the charge is the Brother MFC-L6900DW MFC (RRP $A1,799) which offers a monochrome scan speed of up to 50 pages per minute; plus, single-pass, two-sided (duplex) monochrome scanning at a rate of up to 100 images per minute. Additional paper trays are available in 250-sheet or 520-sheet capacities – up to 2,650 sheets total capacity, enabling more flexibility and expandability based on business need and potential growth.

Both of these models also help deliver wireless mobile device connectivity including NFC for convenient printing and scanning and network user authentication.

“Brother continues to deliver durable, reliable and flexible solutions for business and we are extending our offerings to key corporate, healthcare, public sectors, hospitality and retail industries”, said Luke Howard, Brother International Australia’s Commercial Market Development Channel Manager.

“Our aim is to deliver business productivity and cost-efficiencies first and foremost with key departments. We achieve this through the dependability and reliability that our printers and MFCs represent – all built on Brother quality.”
