Bytes Document Solutions has launched a new WorkCentre M20i multifunction device for the desktop. The new product helps office workers clear out a clutter of standalone printers, copiers and fax machines and replaces them with one compact, easy to use device that can print, copy, fax, scan and e-mail.
The WorkCentre M20i handles both letter and legal-size documents offering print and copy speeds of up to 22 pages per minute and a first-copy-out time of less than 9 seconds. Two-sided printing is standard and customers can opt for multiple paper trays, allowing a combination of letter and legal sized paper to be used within the same job.
In addition, a feature called 'ID Card Copy' enables people to copy both sides of a document, such as a license or insurance card, onto one side of a piece of paper. Critical for medical and healthcare organisations, this feature not only reduces paper waste but it also cuts the time and steps involved to create files for patients.
"Desktop MFPs that print/copy at 21-30 pages per minute appeal to a wide range of small to mid sized businesses seeking faster speeds, optional finishing features and higher capacity for supplies than found on lower end devices," said Dan Corsetti of IDC. "Due to the demand from these users, this segment of the market is expected to grow nearly 13% annually from 2003 through 2008 in the US."
"Xerox is helping customers solve business challenges with a feature-packed desktop multifunction device that has the muscle to stand up to their everyday office needs," said Tanya Moodley, product and marketing manager at Bytes. "This product will help customers in a variety of industries save time and money by using features that deliver exceptional performance."
The WorkCentre M20i is a digital copier/printer with colour scanning. The WorkCentre M20i is a fully featured multifunction system designed to be networked. It can copy, print, colour fax, and colour scan to e-mail. The M20i offers fast fax speeds due to compression technology that creates smaller files that can be faxed quicker, saving time and telephone costs. It offers remote device monitoring and management capabilities through the Web. In addition, the intuitive user interface, simple print drivers and straightforward scan to e-mail capability require little to no training.
The two devices come with ScanSoft's PaperPort SE v9.0 - software that allows people to automatically create PDF files from scanned documents - and OmniPage SE v2.0 software, which converts paper and PDF files into editable electronic documents. Both software tools eliminate numerous steps for organising, sharing and storing documents, leading to higher worker productivity and faster access to critical information.
