Gestetner (Pty) Ltd. has extended its multifunctional product (MFP) portfolio with the DSm635 (35ppm) and DSm645 (45ppm). These machines are designed to offer printing, copying, scanning and faxing, together with document workflow and management features, in a single, space-saving device. The ability to handle multiple document tasks through this central communications portal optimizes efficiency and productivity, whilst also reducing the Total Cost of Ownership (TCO), the company says. It is said to be an ideal choice for document communications in large workgroups of between 10 and 30 users.
"These devices act as all-round communication portals for both ICT managers and users. ICT managers will benefit, as both devices are fully compatible with the network for seamless integration into existing ICT infrastructures, and users can perform a range of jobs from one machine," explains Anthony Ho, Gestetner SA product support manager. "Both devices significantly optimize workflow by providing users with a number of intuitive features that streamline the document process. Since both machines are easy-to-use, and combine a range of technological advancements, users will immediately see the benefits of using an MFP device to produce professional-looking business documents whilst maximizing personal efficiency levels."
Both the DSm635 and DSm645 include communication, security and device management features, providing an end-to-end service for document workflow within your organization, the company says. Furthermore, scan-to-e-mail, scan-to-folder and paperless faxing facilitate easy digital distribution of documents, enhancing user productivity and efficiency, Gestetner adds.
Scan-to-e-mail aims to enable users to send documents directly from the control panel to multiple recipients, providing a fast, easy and cost-effective alternative to international faxing at the touch of a button, the company says. By using Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) technology, in conjunction with Scan-to-e-mail, these devices are designed to update themselves automatically, with the latest e-mail addresses on the mail server, aiming to eliminate the need for ICT managers to spend time configuring individual machines. Additionally, your organization will benefit from the security features that require a password to access the Scan-to-e-mail function, the company says.
The Scan-to-Folder feature is designed to enable large documents to be transferred directly to a specified network folder or FTP site. This aims to help to reduce e-mail traffic and to ensure secure distribution when sharing documents across the network. Combined with the intuitive touch screen control panel, including an icon-based menu, users are easily guided step-by-step through the scanning functions for maximum productivity, the company adds.
"As the communications hub of the workplace, these MFPs will truly enhance and bring added value to the document input, throughput and output process," says Ho. Gestetner says that it offers an advanced range of multifunctional products (MFPs) that combine the functionality of advanced digital copiers with those of network printers, network scanners and faxes. "With the significant advantages of network connectivity and the flexibility of the MFP's combined options, Gestetner is capable of matching all its clients' needs every time, from the simplest to the most sophisticated, with a single, reliable and high-quality package," concludes Ho.
