Customer-Focused Upgrades Offer Greater Productivity, Usability, Flexibility and Enhanced Mobility

Sydney, Australia – 10 March 2016 – Taking the next bold step in reinforcing its leadership position in supporting business efficiency and value, Brother International (Aust) Pty Ltd is introducing a powerful series of laser printers and Multi-Function Centres® (MFCs) to serve a full range of office, workgroup and larger-volume print environments starting from 5-500 employees.

Brother’s range of business solutions are known the world over for being both intuitive for end users and highly friendly for IT administrators to manage. In line with this philosophy, Brother International Australia has deployed a nationwide Commercial Market Development team to help customers employ specific print requirements to their large scale work environments. From firmware changes through to integration with existing infrastructures and networks, or adjustments to the devices themselves, Brother has both the ability and the team to make its solutions work for all Australian businesses.

“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.”

Productivity Enhancements

The new Brother L5000 and L6000 Series answer critical office workflow needs within a broad range office environments and industries. Building on previous generations of Brother business laser printers, these new models offer faster print speeds, more flexible paper handling capabilities, advanced scanning capabilities, convenient mobility features and access to business cloud services2.

“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,” Howard notes.

Today’s wireless working environment – both in the office and on the road – demands more mobile flexibility. The Brother L5000 and L6000 Series models connect with most mobile device technologies. In addition, 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 TM and Mopria®.

Workflow Solutions

Most of the machines feature a colour touchscreen display for easy access to the award-winning Brother Web Connect interface1 to directly print from popular business cloud services2, including DROPBOX, GOOGLE DRIVE™, BOX, and ONEDRIVE®. Users can also 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.

Higher-Volume Solutions

For businesses with higher print and scan volumes, Brother is rolling out two cost-effective and business-durable machines: the Brother HL-L6400DW printer and the MFC-L6900DW MFC. Productivity features on these top-end machines include fast printing and copying (up to 50 pages per minute) and a fastest-in-class monochrome scan speed3 (up to 50 pages per minute); plus, single-pass, two-sided (duplex) monochrome scanning at an impressive 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. With the addition of an ultra high-yield 20,000-page4 replacement toner cartridge, business users will realise a lower total cost of ownership, lower running costs and greater cost efficiency in general. Both of these models also help deliver wireless mobile device connectivity including NFC5 for convenient printing and scanning and network user authentication.

Independent Results: Business-Durability, Customer Satisfaction

Buyers Laboratory (BLI), a widely-respected testing and resource company, has evaluated several of the new Brother models. BLI noted the significant business value of the new machines: “The Brother models offer competitive to lower than average cost of ownership,” stated Eiji Amano, Brother International Australia’s Senior Product Manager – Printing.

BLI recognised the machines’ reliability, particularly in high-volume printing. “Even during peak periods, users won’t see any noticeable slowdowns in output speeds,” said Amano. He also noted the ease of use: “The smartphone-like interface on the touchscreen models reduces the learning curve and NFC connectivity eliminates guesswork for mobile printing, offers badge authentication and a quick link to troubleshooting information.” In addition, BLI pointed to robust scan features that boost worker productivity and simple affordable sharing of content and collaboration in the cloud with Brother Web Connect2.

Brother printers have also been recognised with both PC Magazine’s Business Choice and Readers’ Choice Awards for 2015 for their reliability and customer satisfaction. Brother has been honored with the Business Choice Award three years in a row; this is the seventh straight annual Readers’ Choice recognition.
