KYOCERA Document Solutions America Introduces Two New Breakthrough Color TASKalfa Multifunctional Products for High-Volume Document Environments

FAIRFIELD, N.J. – December 4, 2013–KYOCERA Document Solutions America, one of the world's leading document solutions companies, today strengthened its award-winning TASKalfa lineup by launching two robust color multifunctional products (MFPs). The TASKalfa 7551ci and the TASKalfa 6551ci promise to streamline document workflows, simplify daily tasks, and maximize efficiency by employing the hallmarks of the TASKalfa brand: breakthrough technology, user-friendly features, and seamless compatibility with critical business applications.

“The TASKalfa 7551ci and TASKalfa 6551ci are no-nonsense workhorses,” said Danielle Wolowitz, director, product marketing at KYOCERA Document Solutions America. “Both of these devices take MFP capabilities to the next level. They output large print runs at blazing speeds—with colors and details that bring a professional touch to any company materials. They can also scan and digitize hundreds of documents quickly and easily. And like all TASKalfa MFPs, they integrate with Kyocera’s business applications. That means users can send their critical documents to the cloud, to document management systems, or other critical business systems without compromising any existing security protocols.”


People Matter, Results Count

The company is the partner of choice for leading businesses around the world and when it comes to Capgemini’s own technology requirements the company requires collaboration, agility and a competitive approach from its partners.

Eddie Ginja, UK Head of Infrastructure Management, Capgemini said: ”I run our UK internal IT services estate covering 5 sites throughout the UK and although we are very knowledgeable about Managed Print Services having been through the first generation we wanted to see where the major players were taking their solutions. Having worked with the market leaders for many years we knew that they simply couldn’t meet our current requirements. We weren’t initially aware of KYOCERA, however we’d been speaking to Gartner and saw a case study on ECOSYS technology which piqued our interest. We did our research on KYOCERA and found out that the company had won lots of awards while the innovative ceramic technology behind KYOCERA printers was intriguing and it soon became a clear that KYOCERA had some key differentiators.”

KYOCERA outlined its Managed Document Services offering, which is an IT Infrastructure Library (ITIL)-aligned, environmentally friendly yet cost-saving approach which has won the MPSA’s Best Practice Global Leadership Award 2012. KYOCERA’s approach focuses on Managed Document Solutions (MDS) rather than Managed Print “We did our research on KYOCERA and found out that the company had won lots of awards while the innovative ceramic technology behind KYOCERA printers was intriguing and it soon became a clear that KYOCERA had some key differentiators.”

Kyocera's Hypas Technology


Not so long ago, the MFP was a device for printing, copying, scanning and occasionally faxing. But technology has evolved, and the enhanced capability of the devices has brought about many additional requirements and fundamentally changed the way MFPs are used today. The transition to colour printing for instance relates to the increasing need for document accounting in order to control and manage output costs. Security became a topic with high relevance not only for PCs and networks, but also for MFPs: how to secure the data travelling between PC and output tray, and how to avoid that unauthorized users pick up confidential information from output trays. Other important issues for companies are to increase productivity and to reduce costs. Considering that costs related to document output can be as high as 3% of a company’s revenue, reducing these costs can have significant impact on a company’s bottom line. Process automation for example is an excellent productivity booster: instead of repeating complex steps each time, the automated process can be started with one click directly from the panel and saves users much time while at the same time reducing risks of errors.

All these topics – cost control and cost reduction, security, productivity – are fundamental for the survival of any company, with direct impact on their profit situation. Therefore companies are looking for solutions that address their requirements and individual situation in the best way.

To be able to answer the diverse needs of customers, MFP Solution Platforms were developed and integrated into the devices, as a basis for applications to be executed on the MFP. These platforms enable connectivity between the device and external business applications, which opens up endless options of advanced functionality. For instance, there can be a direct connection between the device and a company’s Document Management System so that documents can be immediately and correctly archived with little effort directly from the MFP panel.
