Lexmark is launching four new devices to channel partners in Australia and New Zealand.

The products now available to resellers are especially suitable for small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) with teams working from home.

The new offering includes three monochrome business-class printers and multifunction products (MFPs), and one small-workgroup colour MFP device for SMB customers.

The printers offer scanning speeds of up to 92 images per minute and print speeds up to 40 pages per minute (ppm) with time to first page as fast as 5.9 seconds.

Designed for small workgroups and small spaces, the new devices will allow channel partners to further support their customers to equip teams working from home.

“We are seeing real opportunities in print for partners, as their SMB customers are moving away from one centralised printing device in the office to printing from their homes having to add more devices to their fleet,” says Lexmark Australia and New Zealand sales general manager Stephen Dubois.

“In these familiar yet remote working environments, team members need smaller, lighter and faster products, while maintaining durability and the security features to protect their networks and proprietary information'. Our new range for resellers has exactly these features.

Lexmark MS331dn (monochrome MFP): offering solid performance and flexible connectivity, the Lexmark MS331dn supports output up to 38 pages per minute*, multiple connectivity options and an optional 550-sheet paper tray. Built for protecting sensitive information, this new device offers full-spectrum security to help keep users' information safe.

Lexmark MS431dn (monochrome MFP): Resellers can offer their clients monochrome output of up to 40 pages per minute, with a first page as fast 5.9 seconds with the Lexmark MS431dn. The 1-GHz dual-core processor and 256 MB of memory powers through challenging jobs and the device offers optional Extra High Yield Unison toner for up to 20,000 pages of output**.

Lexmark MX431adn (monochrome MFP): For versatility that fits, the business-class Lexmark MX431adn fits almost anywhere, measuring just 339 mm high x 411 mm wide and 366 mm deeps. This new device offers double-side automatic scanning, copying, faxing and touch-screen convenience, supporting output up to 40 pages per minute*.

Lexmark CX431adw (colour MFP): The small workgroup colour versatility is easy to deploy and share with the compact, lightweight Lexmark CX431adw multifunction. This new device is built for reliability, performance and security, and can scan up to 90 images per minute and print up to 24 pages per minute*.

“These four new devices will help our channel partners to provide their customers with more ad hoc hardware for smaller working environments. Given their very high quality, these devices can later be taken back to the office after the current lockdown or may remain in the home office of team members, should they choose to remain working remotely,” adds Dubois.

* Print and copy speeds measured in accordance with ISO/IEC 24734 and ISO/IEC 24735 respectively (ESAT). 

** Average continuous mono declared yield in one-sided (simplex) mode of up to this number of pages in accordance with ISO/IEC 19752. Actual yield will vary considerably based upon many factors.
