Samsung officials at the launch of the MultiXpress CLX-9301 color series and SCX-8128 mono series in Singapore
Samsung Electronics Singapore unveiled a new series of printers targeted at small and medium businesses (SMBs) on May 15.
The A3 mono and color copiers, which have already been launched some other markets in Asia, were introduced to the Singapore market for the first time.
The MultiXpress CLX-9301 color series and SCX-8128 mono series are designed to deliver exceptional performance and efficient printing solutions for SMBs, said Simon Tan, director, Printer and Visual Display, Samsung Electronics.
"Samsung is no. 2 in the global A4 laser printer market," he said. "The new printers we are launching today have a sophisticated design, they come in a compact size and they have an intuitive interface like a smartphone." Samsung's unique design philosophy was acknowledged at iF Design Award in 2013 for "turning a mechanically complex printer into a simple design and showing how creative design adds value to a product," he said.
During the demo, Samsung officials said that the CLX-9301 series and SCX-8128 series are designed to enhance office productivity thanks to a fully integrated Samsung 1GHz Dual Core CPU, which enables documents to be processed up to 1.5 times faster than conventional copiers. The CLX-9301 color series can print between 20 and 30 pages per minute, whilst the SCX-8128 mono series can print between 23 and 28 pages per minute. The copiers can also handle multiple large documents from several users, while maintaining a higher print and copy speed.
Tan also said that Samsung's Business Core Printing Solutions (BCPS) is also available for the copier series. BCPS enables businesses to be more productive by enabling user authentication, usage monitoring, document processing and server-less pull printing. BCPS does not require a separate server, making it ideal for SMB customers without a large IT department or IT budget.
According to Tan, these printers are cost effective because they maintain low overall energy consumption thanks to the innovative all-in-one board, which delivers a 60 per cent reduction in energy consumption. Further, Samsung's polymerized toner consists of smaller toner particles which require lower fusing temperature so users save on power and costs.
Easy-Eco Driver is applied on Samsung A3 copiers to lower the toner and maintenance costs for SMBs by an average of 20%.
At the Samsung Polaris Revolution launch event, Samsung also announced the appointment of DocuConneX as the authorized distributor of Samsung enterprise solution printers and copiers in Singapore.
Established in July 2011, Docu ConneX offers a full range of enterprise tools from hardware to software to IT services and support to help companies better manage their data and storage for overall cost reductions and productivity improvements.
