Lexmark extends enterprise strength into SME market with Two-Series product line
Two-Series single- and multifunction printers feature compact performance and affordability.
Lexmark, a global imaging solutions leader, announced it is bringing its enterprise-scale strengths to a new line of printers designed for the SME market. The Lexmark Two Series is designed for micro-workgroups looking to simply and securely print, copy, fax and scan, all within a compact and easy-to-use device.
Typically ranging from two to four people, micro-workgroups include small businesses, start-ups and branch offices or franchises. Three monochrome products in the line were launched — the single function Lexmark B2236dw and two multifunction Lexmark MB2236adw with additional scanning, copying and faxing functionality and MB2236adwe.
“No matter the size of the organisation, Lexmark is committed to helping our customers minimise the cost and IT burden of their printers,” said Sammy Kinlaw, Lexmark vice-president, worldwide channel and OEM sales. “Small businesses can’t afford to waste time or money updating their IT equipment every year. Lexmark intentionally engineered these devices to be tough workhorses, packed with power and speed, and built to last.”
Micro-workgroups and small businesses remain an important growth segment. Marking Lexmark’s entry into this segment, the printers launched feature rapid monochrome output up to 34 pages per minute, plus standard two-sided printing. Standard WiFi offers enhanced connectivity and support for mobile users, while Lexmark’s full-spectrum security ensures the same level of award-winning security and protection typically reserved for enterprise-class devices.
Together, the three devices provide high performance in a lightweight, compact design. Easy to move or tuck into tight spaces, the Lexmark B2236dw comes in at just under 7kg, while the multifunction Lexmark MB2236adw weighs 10kg. In addition to printing, the MB2236adw also scans up to 23 pages per minute.
“Despite their small size and weight, we’ve retained the signature Lexmark features that our customers know and love. This includes extending Lexmark’s enterprise-class full-spectrum security to the SME market, as well as standard WiFi and mobile connectivity,” said Chris White, Lexmark director of product marketing. “With energy management features to reduce power consumption, these printers are friendly both to the environment and small business budgets.”
Lexmark creates innovative imaging solutions and technologies that help customers worldwide print, secure and manage information with ease, efficiency and unmatched value.
