Brothers latest trade promotion is offering resellers up to 30 cash back on every unit purchased from its new 8000 series of flatbed laser all-in-ones.

The promotion runs from 1 July until 30 September 2006. Purchases of ten or more during this period earn a profitable 20 cash back per machine. Resellers accumulating 15 or more will earn 25 cash back per machine and purchases of 20 or more will earn 30 cash back per machine. There are no purchasing restrictions beyond the 20 units.

The customer promotion is for one years free warranty and when registered for the promotion the customer receives an additional two years - a total of three years warranty.

Martin Boffey, Insynergi Marcoms Manager commented: This promotion offers resellers an opportunity to make additional margin against a very popular range of business products. By also offering customers a free two year extended warranty on these products during the same period, we believe this is a powerful promotion for resellers to take advantage of.

The products have a range of new features packed into one compact machine to help the user work more efficiently.  New features include automatic duplexing and Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) compatibility enabling documents to be faxed or emailed directly from the machine, without having to access a PC.

Martin Boffey added: In keeping with Brothers excellent track record in the all-in-one market, this latest range provides a very strong line-up with added value features for example LDAP compatibility at no additional cost.

Models include:

  • DCP-8060**: This base model offers print, copy and scan, fast 28 page per minute print speed, expandable 32MB memory, high print resolution and comes with a years on-site warranty. Suggested retail price (SRP): 279.99 (inc VAT).
  • DCP-8065DN: Includes the same functions as the DCP-8060 with additional automatic duplex print, copy and scan and comes network ready. SRP: 359.99 (inc VAT).
  • MFC-8860DN (pictured): Includes the same functions as the DCP-8065DN but has a fax function and is LDAP compatible. SRP: 429.99 (inc VAT).
