WILSONVILLE, Ore.--Aug. 7, 2003-- Xerox Corporation earned industry honors in a variety of categories for seven of its digital office products, including WorkCentre and Document Centre multifunction systems as well as Phaser printers. The awards come from Better Buys for Business and Buyers Laboratory Inc. (BLI).
Xerox's WorkCentre M15 and M15i earned the Editor's Choice Award in the 2003 Low-Volume Copier & Multifunctional Guide published by Better Buys for Business, a leading resource for independent research and evaluation of office products. The guide is being released in August.
"The WorkCentre M15 and M15i offer exceptional features and are some of the most aggressively priced machines sold through direct and dealer channels," said Jonathan Bees, editor, Better Buys for Business. "They are solid values - you really can't go wrong with either one."
Five other Xerox office products captured esteemed "Pick of the Year" awards from BLI, a leading independent testing lab. They are:
Document Centre 545SH - Outstanding Segment 4 Multifunctional Imaging System (41 to 55 pages per minute);
Phaser 8200DP - Outstanding Critical Color Printer;
Phaser(TM)4400DT - Outstanding Small to Mid-Size Workgroup Monochrome Printer;
FaxCentre F12 - Outstanding Networked Fax-Centric Multifunctional Imaging System;
WorkCentre Pro 580 - Outstanding Low-Volume Fax-Centric Multifunctional Imaging System.
"In addition to demonstrating reliability during its three-month evaluation, the Xerox Document Centre 545SH was found to offer excellent multitasking capability, the best print drivers we've seen and productivity that broke records in a number of modes," said Pete Emory, supervisor of Lab Operations, Buyers Laboratory Inc.
The Document Centre 545SH is a 45 page-per-minute device that is available as a copier or a multifunction system for workgroup environments. This device is built upon the same platform as Xerox's recently launched mid-volume CopyCentre(TM), WorkCentre and WorkCentre Pro systems.
The Phaser 8200 solid ink color printer is designed for people making the transition to color. It offers cost and print quality advantages that make it practical to replace black-and-white printers.
Xerox Phaser, Document Centre, FaxCentre and WorkCentre products are available through Xerox direct sales, sales agents, resellers and dealers. The products come with Xerox's Total Satisfaction Guarantee as well as toll-free telephone support and online customer support.
