3 Technology Trends to Watch in 2013

If you’re offering managed print services or considering getting into the business, keeping up on the latest developments in products is vital. There are lots of new features and capabilities emerging with stand-alone and multifunction printers that can help service providers sell more equipment and secure managed print business.

Following are a few highlights from recent months that cover three top trends in the imaging industry that may grow in importance in the coming year.

#1. Productivity Features

In September, Xerox announced a new multifunction printer aimed at the small and medium-sized business (SMB) market. The Xerox WorkCentre® 6605 Color Multifunction Printer is designed to help SMBs make the most of their investment with features that make it easy to produce, share and protect business documents.

The WorkCentre 6605 is designed to fit almost anywhere in an office, with a small footprint that’s a big advantage for businesses with space limitations. Other benefits for SMBs include simplified information. Scanned files can be automatically shared via email or network folder, or saved directly to a USB memory device for portability. The product also offers document protection, with a Secure Print feature that requires a personal identification number for users to release documents. A front-panel PIN code authentication also protects access to device features.

An optional wireless adapter makes access to the device available anywhere in an office, and a large color touch screen enables simple navigation. Users can view everything from documents in the queue to toner levels. Xerox’s oil-free EA Toner and Photo Mode allow images and graphics to stand out with richer colors, even on ordinary or recycled paper, according to the company.

Xerox also announced the Phaser® 6600 Color Printer, which shares the same print engine, accessories and supplies, and Phaser 7100 Tabloid Color Printer, for small businesses. Xerox’s WorkCentre 6605 Color Multifunction Printer, Phaser 6600 Color Printer and Phaser 7100 Tabloid Color Printer are available.
