Global market intelligence company Keypoint Intelligence acknowledges Toshiba America Business Solutions’ commitment to innovation by presenting the multifunction printer (MFP) provider two Buyers Lab 2021 Winter Pick Awards. Toshiba’s latest color, letter-size (A4) e-STUDIO™330AC and e-STUDIO400AC MFPs won the awards by blending ease of use, dynamic features and exceptional value.
The respected market research company specifically selected Toshiba’s e-STUDIO™330AC as the Outstanding A4 Color MFP for Mid-Size to Large Workgroups and e-STUDIO400AC as the Outstanding A4 Color MFP for Large Workgroups. Keypoint Intelligence (Winter and Summer for office hardware) Pick Awards are reserved for products having undergone rigorous testing within a year’s time and deemed to be “Best in Class” by the company’s experienced analysts and technicians.
“Toshiba is an exceptional choice for mid-size and large workgroups seeking a color MFP,” said Kaitlin Shaw, Keypoint Intelligence’s Associate Director of A4 Hardware. “For a significantly lower than average cost per page compared to in-class models, businesses get high-performing, user-friendly devices with excellent feature sets. And Toshiba’s Elevate platform enables integration with an array of solutions that can help reduce costs and boost productivity even further. The value propositions that these Toshiba MFPs offer to mid- and high-volume environments is truly remarkable.”
