Epson launched its next generation of superfast eco-efficient business inkjet printers, the WorkForce Enterprise, at a launch event in Dubai attended by Epson’s business partners from the region and media persons. This ultra fast 100ipm departmental colour office A3 printer delivers the ecological benefits that only inkjet technology can offer, providing a low power solution with fewer supplies at the price of a departmental laser copier. The WorkForce Enterprise WF-C20590 is joined by a 75ipm version, the WF-C17590, both designed to meet the needs of departmental office printing in corporates and SMEs, especially those that have peaks of high-volume productivity.
Khalil El-Dalu, regional sales manager, Epson Europe B.V., commented, “Despite its energy efficiency, performance is not compromised. Our products are always been developed in the interest of customer. Our EcoTank is having very good business but it don’t have enough speed for business and that is one of      the reason we launched WorkForce. Again, the WorkForce comes with the replaceable ink pack systems where the customer can select the packs based on their requirement from 4,000 pages to 75,000 along with that they can even choose the colours too. We don’t want to comment about the competitors but we are using the quartz element in the nozzles so it doesn’t require any heating element. It also gives us the edge to work with managed print services. In addition, we are entering the MPS segment with huge investment and it may take time to reach the customer but it will be efficient for them.”
Jason Whiley director of sales, Epson Middle East, says, “The WorkForce Enterprise cuts the environmental impact of print by providing a low power solution, with fewer supplies, while delivering remarkably fast print speeds at high quality. Having far fewer parts than equivalent laser-based MFDs, this series promises to deliver higher reliability and significantly increase printer uptime. We knew we had something special as soon as we saw the WorkForce Enterprise in the lab, but it has been the reactions from resellers in many countries that has really confirmed the ground-breaking nature of this new range. We took this model on the road to cities across the continent, including Prague, Lille, Athens, Helsinki and many more, to gather vital feedback which has gone into creating the best Epson product possible.”
