Kyocera Document Solutions South Africa, one of the world’s leading document solutions companies, and part of Kyocera Corporation, announced that Keypoint Intelligence - Buyers Lab awarded Kyocera with five Summer 2019 Copier MFP Pick awards. 

The accolades were awarded to three colour and two black-and-white MFPs within Kyocera’s TASKalfa range.

Of Kyocera’s A3 colour range, the TASKalfa 6053ci, TASKalfa 4053ci and the TASKalfa 3253ci, as well as the black-and-white A3 MFPs, the TASKalfa 6003i and TASKalfa 5003i were recipients of these sought-after awards. All devices were recognised as “outstanding” for a variety of benefits and features, including performance, reliability and consistent image quality.

According to George Mikolay, Associate Director of Copiers/Production at Keypoint Intelligence - Buyers Lab, “Kyocera’s story begins with reliability. In total, we experienced just three misfeeds in nearly 600 000 impressions of testing. And considering their long-lasting consumables, downtime will rarely, if ever, be a concern. Kyocera’s award for Most Reliable Colour Copier MFP Brand puts a stamp on the company’s excellence in this area.”

This means that they can always count on Kyocera products to print the quality documentation they need, when they need it, without question.” 

These devices use HyPAS technology to allow for the seamless integration of customised workflow solutions, helping to streamline complex tasks, enhance security and reduce costs. This provides flexibility and adaptability for users expecting a return on investment without compromising on quality.
