Epson America, Inc. has announced the new WorkForce Pro WF-C5000 Series. Powered by PrecisionCore printing technology, the printers feature Epson’s Replaceable Ink Pack System technology in a new compact form factor for what Epson calls a streamlined, efficient workstation.
The new WorkForce Series offers print speeds of 24 ISO ppm (black/color) and a first page out with no warmup time. Epson claims businesses can save up to 45% on total printing costs vs. color laser, can print up to 5,000 ISO pages without changing the ink packs, and minimize user interventions with auto two-sided capabilities and large paper tray capacities up to 830 sheets with an optional second paper tray.
“Epson recognizes the needs of busy workgroups and continues to deliver innovative products to help drive productivity,” said Larry Trevarthen, director of business imaging, Epson America, Inc. “By bringing some of the advanced technology featured in our WorkForce Enterprise Series MFPs to our WorkForce Pro A3/Tabloid class of printers, and now down to the desktop workgroup class of printers, we are extending our advanced technology features throughout our portfolio.”
With Epson’s Replaceable Ink Pack System technology, an intuitive user interface and nozzle verification technology previously introduced on the WorkForce Enterprise Series MFPs and the WorkForce Pro WF-C869R, the WF-C5000 Series is built for productivity, according to the company. The series also provides advanced security features and is enabled for remote printer data collection.
Through Epson Open Platform, Epson has expanded its support for ISVs such as Nuance Equitrac Office/Express, Nuance eCopy ShareScan, PaperCut, and nddPrint.
The WorkForce Pro WF-C5000 Series is now available through authorized BusinessFirst resellers.
What we’re seeing here is Epson making a consistent and concerted effort to win the hearts and minds of not only users but resellers with its WorkForce Pro WF-C5000 Series. We’re seeing inkjet continue to gain acceptance in the office segment and while our 32nd Annual Survey only found a modest number of dealers marketing Epson products, we expect to see that number increase in this year’s survey based on the enhancements Epson continues to make to its products and the expansion of its product line. For resellers who get turned on by selling inkjet printers, based on a recent conversation we had with Epson about the new line, we certainly think this line is worth a closer look.
