Which multifunction printer is right for your business?
Selecting a multifunction printer can be a tricky task, when faced with the bewildering array of options available on the market. Seartec outlines the features of some of the Sharp MFPs that meet the various needs of different businesses.
Small businesses and home offices often run on a tight budget, and value for money is a priority. Seartec, proud distributor of Sharp, has several solutions that deliver on the high standards set by Sharp technology, without damaging the company bank balance or derailing cash flow. It isn’t necessary to compromise on quality to pinch a few pennies – instead go for one of these two sturdy and smart models
Dynamite comes in small packages: the MX-C300W
A small office that needs a black & white and colour printer will make the most of this compact powerhouse. The MX-C300W won’t keep you waiting, with a printing speed of 30 pages per minute in both black and white and colour, and a warm-up time of less than 30 seconds. Image quality is crisp, right down to fine lines and small text. It has a number of beneficial features for added convenience, including direct printing from and saving to a USB, which plugs into a port on the machine; the Sharpdesk application helps you to manage your scanned images and documents for organising, editing and distributing; and business card scanning which can be used with commercially available software to create an electronic business card database – so you can toss that clumsy old business card holder which has been gathering dust on your desk. Finally, the MX-C300W is a whiz when it comes to easy wireless connections: built-in wireless LAN connectivity means that it can connect wirelessly to notebook PCs, tablets and smartphones. Scan to or print from any of these devices wirelessly from any of these devices, for increased flexibility and convenience.
Choose simplicity with the AR-203E
Home offices, or small offices such as doctor’s rooms or small retail outlets have uncomplicated requirements: a reliable printer with the convenience of an MFP, such as the space-saving fax, scan and copy capabilities merged in one neat little machine. The AR-203E is a black and white multi-function printer with colour scanning. Speedy output in a high quality 600 dpi resolution means that smaller-volume document requirements are handled efficiently and professionally. And Energy Star certification means that it is power saving and environmentally friendly.
