Epson has announced two new A3 multifunction color printers, the WorkForce Pro WF-C879R and WF-C878R as well as a free cloud-based printer fleet management tool, Epson Remote Services. Its scheduled print usage reporting via emails can help partners simplify click-charge based customer billing.
“Businesses demand simple, reliable, economical, and future-proof solutions, and we strive to provide the resources and support that our partners require to stay competitive while continuing to grow their business,” said Dennis Fan, product manager, Epson America. “The expansion of our product and service portfolio with the new WorkForce MFP models and Epson Remote Services demonstrate our relentless commitment to the growth and success of our partners.”
The WF-C879R and WF-C878R with Replaceable Ink Pack Systems let users print up to 86,000 ISO pages (black) and up to 50,000 ISO pages (color). The WF-C879R offers output speeds of 26/25 ISO ppm (black/color) and scan speeds of up to 100 images per minute (duplex), while the WF-C878R prints at speeds of 25/24 ISO ppm (black/color) and scans up to 45 images per minute (duplex). Both printers offer media handling capabilities including auto duplexing and auto media size detection,.
With remote maintenance functionality, Epson Remote Services can acquire printer status, reboot the device and clean the printhead. The dashboard gives an overview, allowing dealers to locate devices. Usage reports can be produced weekly, monthly or quarterly. Multiple Epson networked devices can be registered simultaneously and access can be controlled with a specified range of IP addresses. Dealers also have access to monitor the status of printers connected via USB, rather than the Ethernet network.
