Product News - New high-end monochrome multifunctional devices from DEVELOP South Africa

JOHANNESBURG – June 25, 2015 – DEVELOP South Africa, a division of Bidvest Office (Pty) Ltd, has launched the new ineo 4050/4750 monochrome multifunctional devices. “These high-end office devices offer advanced functionality, high productivity, reassuring data security and an eco-friendly performance: such a full set of features is far from common in monochrome multifunctional devices,” explains Marc Pillay, divisional managing director of DEVELOP South Africa. “Thanks to their fully featured concept these two systems are a good choice for any small business, as well as small- to mid-sized workgroups in larger companies.”

The launch of these two highly sophisticated A4 devices have completed DEVELOP’s entire monochrome line-up. What’s more, the numerous common features shared by the ineo 4050/4750 and DEVELOP’s A3 systems will make users in larger multiple-device environments feel instantly at home when operating the ineo 4050/4750.

Intuitive user interface

Intuitive, user-friendly device operability is more important than ever in today’s office environments, where the IT infrastructure tends to be increasingly complex. The self-explanatory operability of the ineo 4050/4750, a feature common to all DEVELOP’s A4 and A3 devices, reduces user training to a minimum, thus enabling office workers to return to their normal work in no time at all. “This ease of use does away with the frustrating experiences with hard-to-operate multifunctional devices many office users complain about,” adds Pillay.

Last but not least, the intuitive user interface makes even routine office jobs such as printing, copying, scanning and faxing more enjoyable. The large 7-inch colour screen tilts to two heights to suit the needs of different users, who can operate the system through multi-touch gestures such as tapping and flick scrolling. Most people will be familiar with that operating concept from their smartphone or tablet. The operating panel itself is well structured, self-explanatory and similar to the panels in all DEVELOP’s other A4 and A3 devices. This ease of use is one factor that can help boost office productivity by speeding up the document workflow.

Advanced functionality

Another productivity-enhancing factor is undoubtedly the high-end functionality of these two office devices. The standard configuration of the 40 ppm ineo 4050 and the 47 ppm ineo 4750 includes a reverse automatic document, a 650-sheet paper capacity (extendable to 2,300 sheets via optional cassettes), a PCL and PostScript print controller, a duplex printing unit, 2 GB of memory and a 320 GB hard disk. The optional extras include a stapling unit and a print function for barcodes and Unicode fonts. The high level of integrity with DEVELOP’s A3 systems ensures a common user experience with all the associated time-savings. Consequently, the high-end functionality of the ineo 4050/4750 will prove easy to handle in a multiple-device environment.

Eco-friendly energy efficiency

The ineo 4050/4750 is eco-friendly thanks to the ecologically sound materials used in its construction; the energy-saving features also offers the practical economic advantage of a lower electricity bill. This is made possible by the devices’ low average weekly power consumption and the minimal amount of power required in sleep mode. So there is no real need to switch off either of these multifunctional devices every evening. Their environmental and energy performance fulfils the now even stricter standards of the Energy Star and Blue Angel environmental standards. Labels that underline the devices’ eco-friendly performance, but also point to bottom- line benefits for the owner.
