Toshiba’s High-Performance Multifunction Printer Outperforms Competition to Earn Top Honor
Toshiba America Business Solutions’ e-STUDIO™4508A has earned Keypoint Intelligence – Buyers Lab’s Summer 2017 Pick. Toshiba’s latest monochrome product surpassed comparable multifunction printers in reliability, usability, security, value and features during six months of rigorous, side-by-side product testing.
The global document imaging industry resource presents its ‘Pick’ awards twice annually to acknowledge the best hardware and software offerings in specific product categories. Keypoint Intelligence-Buyers Lab’s unique and comprehensive testing assesses a wide range of features and performance factors that are most important for buyers.
“The Toshiba e-STUDIO4508A offers excellent reliability and a feature set that is designed to enhance end-user productivity,” said Keypoint Intelligence Associate Director George Mikolay. “Users can create and access driver profiles to streamline frequently recurring print chores, while one-touch templates and the Simple Scan and Simple Copy menus make scan and copy jobs a cinch.”
The industry-recognized feature set within Toshiba’s e-STUDIO4508A seamlessly handles the print, document management and workflow needs of virtually any business application. The product is one of six models − with speeds from 20-50 ppm − within Toshiba’s e-STUDIO5008A series integrating otherwise identical hardware and software elements. The e-STUDIO4508A offers leading hardware and software elements including Intel’s® powerful multi-core Atom™ processor, a customizable tablet-style user interface, Embedded Application Platform and Dual-Scan Document Feeder. All of the features are designed to help organizations operate more efficiently and cost effectively while improving workflow.
