Kyocera Document Solutions South Africa has announced the launch of two powerful new A4 colour MFPs for small to medium sized workgroups in medium to large corporate environments, where durable operations and flexible finishing are required.

The latest products in Kyocera’s TASKalfa range, the TASKalfa 358ci and TASKalfa 408ci, continue to provide companies with new tools in the hunt for productivity.

The TASKalfa 358ci and TASKalfa 408ci represent an upgrade on the existing TASKalfa 356ci and TASKalfa 406ci models and feature advanced security functionality like Secure Boot, Trusted Platform Module (TPM) and standard Data Security Kit.

These MFPs offer state-of-the-art scanning technology with a brand new document processor, which allows for up to 170 images to be scanned per minute.The staple detection unit and double feed detection unit make the job easier when scanning stacks of paperwork and documentation.

“These devices represent Kyocera’s latest innovation, proving how the TASKalfa range continues to remain a step ahead of the game in the A4 MFP market,” explained Greg Griffith, Hardware Product Manager at Kyocera Document Solutions South Africa.

“Medium to large-sized companies require solutions that can handle their print and scan needs, while also providing top-class security using the very latest technology to protect their data. These devices do just that,” added Griffith.

Secure Boot technology ensures only authorised firmware is deployed, while the Trusted Platform Module guarantees encryption for image data and certificates, meaning that scanning is not only efficient, but also safe.

The devices are also built around Kyocera’s focus on creating a user-friendly experience. The development of renewed 7-inch operation screen emulates tablet functionality such as scroll and slide, pinch in/pinch out to allow professionals to manage their print jobs with simple drag-and-drop technology.

Even when IT experts or print fleet managers are not in the office, usability is still enhanced. Remote panel support enables firms to have troubleshooting checks and routine processes carried out remotely thanks to the implementation of KYOCERA Fleet Services. Organisations need not worry about arranging visits from technicians and the routine checks reduces downtime and avoids unnecessary delays.

Kyocera’s founder, Dr Kazuo Inamori, believes “it is only by challenging what we are not now capable of achieving that we can attain a higher goal”. This philosophy drives the constant innovation within the organisation. These TASKalfa products enable companies to boost efficiency with unrivalled print and scan capabilities.
