Product News - The ineo+227 offers greater flexibility through mobile printing

JOHANNESBURG – May 06, 2016 – There is little doubt that the workplace of the future is flexible and mobile, and that the need for office workers to be able to print from their mobile devices is increasing. In order to support these developments, DEVELOP South Africa has launched the new ineo +227 colour system, the ideal printing solution for futuristic businesses as this multifunctional device will help make an office fit for continuous change.

The highlight of this new colour device from DEVELOP is undoubtedly its state-of-the-art mobile printing functionality, says CEO, Marc Pillay: “Mobile usability is increasingly becoming a necessity in today’s office environment. After all, no office worker wants to experience any time-wasting hassle when printing or scanning from a mobile device. For this reason, the ineo+ 227 has been designed to meet the needs of businesses that commonly employ mobile working habits, and one of its key features is the ability for the device to be used anywhere and anytime.”

Printing anywhere, anytime

Mobile office workers want the flexibility of printing documents from any in-house digital printing system – whenever the need arises. The latest addition to DEVELOP’s multifunctional colour line-up, the ineo+ 227, meets this need. Equipped with embedded near-field communication (NFC) for Android devices, this device will automatically connect to an office worker’s tablet or smartphone, and conveniently provide touch-to-print and touch-to-scan functionality.

More than a multifunctional printer

Mobile printing is not the only strength the +227 has, as it offers offices enhanced productivity, high capacity and versatile finishing options. With a maximum paper size of A3 and a printing speed of 22 pages per minute (ppm) in black and white or colour, this device is ideally equipped to meet the printing requirements of small- to mid-sized offices or work groups. Its seven-inch touchscreen panel is an intuitive interface offering easy-to-use operability and can be customised to suit the specific needs of individual users or groups – a feature that saves a lot of time on routine printing or copying jobs.

Improved carbon footprint

As more and more businesses prioritise sustainability, they recognise the need to reduce their carbon footprint. Here, the ineo+ 227 can play its part. The redesigned engine in these A3 multifunctional printers is not only more compact but also weighs 15 percent less than the predecessor model. Add to this energy-efficient power consumption and various improvements to the hardware, and the outcome is a reduction in the device’s carbon footprint. This is not only good for the environment but also enables a business to reduce its energy costs and print more cost-effectively.
