Andy Johnson, head of product management at Brother UK, discusses the print considerations of today’s SMBs and how the firms’ new J5000 and J6000 series has been developed with these in mind
Last year the business inkjet market grew by 7 per cent*. This is largely being driven by SMBs who are looking for cost-effective, high quality printers that don’t require the initial upfront investment of their laser counterparts.
We’ve developed new inkjet printers, the J5000 and J6000 ranges, that incorporate the added-value features that SMBs need to support modern office environments.
Not being able to print in A3 can cause frustrations, especially when needed urgently, but some small offices don’t have the space for larger A3 printers. Our J5000 range is specially designed to address this issue, with all models offering occasional A3 printing within A4-sized machines.
In designing the range we’ve also considered that the adoption of a flexible working culture is not just confined to multi-national companies. By the end of next year there will be 26 million mobile workers in the UK, according to IDC, and small businesses are increasingly attracting millennial talent by offering them collaborative environments to suit the ways they want to work.
With this in mind, the J5000 and J6000 series feature cloud connectivity through Google Cloud print, AirPrint and Brother’s own iPrint & Scan app, making it easy for workers to print from multiple devices.
The models are also available as part of our managed print service offering, giving SMBs greater flexibility and control over their print solutions. Brother can help support businesses by developing a bespoke MPS package Andy Johnson, head of product management at Brother UK, discusses the print considerations of today’s SMBs and how the firms’ new J5000 and J6000 series has been developed with these in mind tailored to their complex print requirements.
It’s important for ICT services providers like Brother to keep abreast of changes in workplaces and cultures to make sure technology continues to meet SMB customers’ needs – helping them to truly operate effectively efficiently.
