More productive, more communicative, more secure
A state-of-the-art b/w document production device targeting departmental office users has to provide satisfactory answers to three key questions: Can it boost productivity? Does it improve networked communications? How secure is it? Because these days, productivity, communications and security are crucial issues in assessing performance. The ineo 420/500 from DEVELOP delivers satisfactory answers to all three questions.
DEVELOPs Product Manager for the ineo 420/500, Patrick Klaus, outlines the systems strengths in a departmental environment: Departmental users are looking for a single system that prints, copies, scans and faxes fast. They want a system that improves their networked communication capability. And they expect document security functions to be standard features, not options. This new system fulfils all these requirements in outstanding fashion.
Time is money may be a well-worn adage, but it was never more true than today. Fortunately, the ineo 420/500 has been designed with an eye to time-saving, productivity-boosting functionality. It prints and copies at 42 or 50 pages per minute ideally suited to departmental needs and scans at real speed up to 70 originals per minute via the standard document feeder. Its maximum paper capacity of 5,650 sheets reduces the need for frequent refills. And if the toner or paper runs low while a job is printing, both can be refilled on the fly. Since the ineo 420/500 is designed for a maximum monthly print or copy volume of 150,000/175,000 A4 pages, it is well equipped to meet a departments document production needs. When it comes to delivering ready-to-use documents, the optional inline finishing features also save office users a great of time. Mail-bin sorting, off-setting, stapling of up to 50 sheets, 4-hole punching, grouping and production of entire booklets with numbered pages and the date the ineo 420/500 has plenty to offer when it comes to productive finishing.
As a true departmental device, the ineo 420/500 comes with standard networkability and allows scanned documents to be easily transmitted to any e-mail address, other networked recipient or the users own PC. Up to 1,000 user boxes are available for copy, print, scan and fax jobs, which can also be easily moved from one box to another. Installing the optional hard disk turns the ineo 420/500 into a document server and archiving system where documents can be compactly stored and conveniently retrieved, as required.
Digitised documents in networked environments are a security threat unless access to such documents is restricted to authorised persons. Although departmental users are more aware of the need for effective security measures to protect confidential documents, many vendors of digital printers are still offering essential security functions as optional extras. Here, the ineo 420/500 sets a good example by including crucial security features as part of the standard package. Access to user boxes can be password-protected. Administrators can assign access privileges to individual users or work groups. User access can be restricted to specific functions and over 1,000 user accounts allocated for volume tracking and limitation a useful cost-control measure. Last but not least, job files can be marked as confidential to prevent unauthorised access.
