Brother UK has launched a flagship professional, 40ppm, workgroup A4 colour laser range for the first time as it looks to close the gap on competitors with office workgroup and mid-range class models.
The new devices have been designed to extend the business’s managed print services (MPS) offering, which will now enable reseller partners to specify Brother printers for customers with the highest print volume requirements.
The launch comes as channel resellers are set to see a sharp rise in demand for MPS agreements. IDC research shows that 60% of organisations will have moved to a subscription-based model for printing by 2024 to support hybrid working.
Customers purchasing the new models on an MPS agreement will benefit from automated toner deliveries, extended warranties of up to three years, streamlined workflows, usage tracking and access to top-of-the-range security solutions.
The range of four devices, which are built with market-leading durability and print speed, capacity and quality, are designed to produce a highly competitive cost-per-page, making them a more cost-effective option for businesses looking for the best quality A4 print solution.
Built to offer convenience and reliability for large office spaces, each model comes equipped with the Brother Solutions Interface, which provides users with access to a range of security, document and print management solutions that are easy to integrate, including Secure Print+, Kofax and YSoft.
Greig Millar, general manager – sales, services and solutions at Brother UK, said: “This launch marks an important milestone for Brother as we expand our print solutions offering to suit the needs of the modern office. The new models extend our offering in colour laser to compete at the top-end of the market.
“We know this is vital for MPS partners that are catering for businesses with the highest print volume requirements. They can now specify Brother for all their customers’ printing needs, rather than choosing models from a mix of vendors.
“These workhorse A4 models also prove to be a strong and cost-effective alternative to the heavyweight A3 professional printers on the market, especially for customers in sectors like healthcare and legal services where A3 use is limited.”
Each device delivers a high-quality colour output and comes with highyield in-box toners and a wide range of accessories, including additional paper trays, tower trays, mailboxes and staple finishers.
All four of the new models feature colour touchscreen LCD, USB 2.0 wired network connectivity, print speeds of up to 40ppm and automatic 2-sided print. The HL-L9430CDN and MFC-L9630CDN print up to 28ipm and have 9,000page black and 6,500page colour in-box toners. The HL-L9470CDN and MFC-L9670CDN print up to 40ipm and have 12,000page black and 9,000page colour in-box toners.
