Official SA and SADC region distributor, Drive Control Corporation (DCC), has announced the immediate availability of Canon’s new G-Series range that is optimised for smaller business environments that require extensive functionality coupled with affordability.

The Canon PIXMA G6040 is a multifunction colour printer that offers scan and copy capability, and a practical front-facing tilt-able panel with two-line LCD. The single-function PIXMA G5040 is colour printer with Ethernet for secure network connections and WiFi for smart device connectivity.

Optimised for low-running costs, Canon’s PIXMA GM2040 is a single function black-and-white refillable ink tank printer that delivers high productivity for businesses with mainly mono printing requirements. For minimal colour printing, a colour cartridge can be inserted.

Says David Ah-Tow, Canon product specialist at DCC: "Each printer is designed for the demands of frequent office use, with great features such as mess-free ink bottles, high-yield ink tanks and a wide array of connectivity options. The Canon G-series printers are designed to be excellent alternative office workhorses.”

All three printers maximise productivity with auto double-sided printing and a 350-sheet plain paper capacity, minimising paper refills and cutting expenditure on paper. Also, when ink runs low, use Canon’s squeeze-free ink bottles, designed for a quick refill to minimise printing downtime.

Small business can also remotely monitor each of these printers with Canon’s Management Information Base, available online. The system enables ink levels and print counts to be checked from a single location, ink bottles and paper can therefore be re-ordered before it runs out.
