Growing a small business is no easy feat. It takes time, dedication, a lot of coffee and plenty of late nights at the office. At Fuji Xerox Printers, we work tirelessly to help small businesses succeed. We aim to make life easier for the business owners who work day and night to make their dreams a reality. That’s why we never stop innovating and developing. And that’s how we came to develop our SMART Series range. Our SMART Series devices deliver the advanced business solutions that SMEs need, at the right price and size. Now small businesses can have the same benefits of large multifunction printers, but at a fraction of the cost.
Our SMART Series devices allow small businesses to ‘think big and go small’, by using a compact and affordable printing solution to tackle cost and productivity challenges, in the same way a large device would. The SMART Series range features more than just printing, copying, faxing, colour scanning and email functionality. It also includes a range of advanced document handling, security, reporting and mobile connectivity capabilities. These innovative business solutions have the potential to improve staff productivity, lower the risk of human error, enhance communication and reduce document handling costs. The purpose of this article is to show you how the SMART Series range can help your small business grow.
Gone are the days where you have to spend hours of your precious time and resources scanning and emailing. The SMART Series’ Stored Programming feature automates routine tasks allowing your employees to focus on more important tasks. The devices can be programmed to simplify repetitive tasks at the press of a button to improve staff productivity and accuracy.
Say hello to new and innovative ‘follow-me’ printing solutions that allow users to print and collect their print jobs from any printer on the network. Tap ‘n’ Go on-demand printing lets users connect up to five devices on one network, turning all five devices into your own virtual personal printer. This usually needs pricey server-based software, but with the SMART Series, small businesses can have the same benefits –productivity, privacy, confidentiality and automatic deletion of uncollected print jobs – as larger organisations, at a fraction of the cost.
As a small business, every dollar spent counts, which is why our SMART Series features cost control software that allows you to capture, monitor and control your printing habits. With CMC, you can set business rules to minimise your printing costs, for example setting your default settings to mono and duplex printing. You can also put print quotas or limits in place to cap and control costs. Business owners and financial managers can capture and monitor prints and copies by department, workgroup and user. This increased visibility can improve your printing control and support the redistribution of printing costs.
The DocuPrint M465 AP signifies a breakthrough in solutions-capable mono printers from Fuji Xerox. It brings sophisticated document management features usually associated with larger, more expensive multifunction devices, but in a convenient and cheaper desktop design.
The DocuPrint CM415 AP is designed using the latest technology platform to align with the needs of general office customers, not only in small business, but also in the corporate, government and education sectors. It uses the same powerful features and capabilities as the ApeosPort-V A3 colour series combined with the solutions workflow platform to create a breakthrough in printing technology.
