Epson Launches New WorkForce Printers For Workgroups
May 9, 2016
Back a few weeks ago, Epson America, Inc. announced the new M5000 series of monochrome printers aimed at those in small business workgroups. There are currently two units in the series, the single-function WorkForce Pro WF-5194, and the multifunction WorkForce Pro WF-M5694. Both are powered by Epson’s PrecisionCore® technology to provide the highest quality monochrome printing in their class. Both feature a 10,000 page cartridge yield and up to 580 sheets of maximum paper capacity. To help out IT staff, Epson has designed a robust set of IT tools including security features and network administration capabilities.
Larry Trevarthen, director, Business Imaging, Epson America, Inc., stated, "By expanding Epson's portfolio to incorporate monochrome printing solutions, we are able to provide a portfolio to resellers and IT managers to meet a full range of their office printing needs at an affordable operating cost. The WorkForce Pro monochrome printer family is another step in our commitment to provide businesses with printing alternatives that can provide dramatic savings against alternative options, including laser printers."
The units feature print speeds of up to 20 ISO ppm, allowing businesses to move along efficiently and effectively. With their intuitive network setup and enhanced security, they can be easily integrated into both existing wireless or wired environments and run on universal drivers for both PCL and PostScript®. The multifunction WF-M5694 provides built-in two-sided printing, copying, scanning, and faxing, added further to its utility.
Beyond the aforementioned features, the two newest monochrome units from Epson include:
In terms of pricing and availability, both units are currently ready for purchase through Epson.com as well as through IT and specialty dealers, VARS, contract office suppliers, and other authorized Epson resellers. The single-function WF-5914 has a price tag of $209.99, and the multifunction WF-M5694, $399.99.
