Kyocera Crushes It in the Mid-Range Color and Monochrome Copier MFP Spaces

“Kyocera’s story begins with reliability,” said George Mikolay, Associate Director of Copiers/Production at Keypoint Intelligence – Buyers Lab . “In total we experienced just three misfeeds in nearly 600,000 impressions of testing. And when taking into consideration long-lasting consumables, downtime will rarely, if ever, be a concern. Kyocera’s award for “Most Reliable Color Copier MFP Brand” puts a stamp on the company’s excellence in this area. The HyPAS-enabled devices also allow for seamless integration of customized workflow solutions to not only streamline complex tasks and reduce costs but to enhance security, too. Moreover, highly effective, consistent image quality for both general office and even more marketing-intensive environments, and very good usability across the platform complemented with outstanding price points allow Kyocera to set the standard for value in the copier MFP space.”
