Sydney, Australia – Thursday 17 May, 2012 – KYOCERA Document Solutions, one of the world’s leading document solutions companies, today announced that Business Equipment Research & Test Laboratories, Inc. (BERTL), a leading independent testing laboratory, honoured Kyocera’s colour and monochrome TASKalfa multifunctional device (MFD) series with its ‘Best Office Line of the Year’ award.

BERTL analysts evaluated several hundred MFDs and identified many key features that made Kyocera’s TASKalfa series stand out from the competition, honouring the series with the BERTL Best Office Line of the Year award.

“Kyocera’s TASKalfa line is very intuitive and easy to navigate, and its ultra-reliability and long-life technology deliver superior performance over other products tested by BERTL” said Art Wynne, president, BERTL. “Kyocera’s TASKalfa devices are a powerful yet efficient series of colour and monochrome MFDs optimised by HyPAS technology to make a MFD
product line that clearly demonstrates what it means to achieve BERTL’s Office Line of the Year award.”

As David Finn, Managing Director, Kyocera Document Solutions Australia and New Zealand said, “We have spent many years developing and refining our TASKalfa range so it is very rewarding to be acknowledged in this way by an independent industry expert like BERTL.”
