OKI Data Americas U.S. Sales Team Donates More Than 175 Pairs of Shoes to Center for Family Services as Part of Agency’s “Thanks for Giving” Event

Yesterday, the OKI Data Americas U.S. Sales team donated more than 175 pairs of shoes to area children through the Center for Family Services (CFS) – a nonprofit human services agency based in Camden, NJ – as part of the agency’s Head Start “Thanks for Giving” seasonal event. The event was held in Camden at the Centerville Head Start location and included a variety of learning activities for students. Members of the OKI U.S. Sales team assisted in classroom activities, which included reading books to the students that tied into the curriculum and shoe distribution.

This donation is a continuation of an incentive program initiated by the OKI U.S. Sales team in April 2012 and which led to the donation of 140 pairs of shoes to the agency’s Head Start Back to School event held in August 2012. Through the incentive program, for each sale of an OKI color single-function or multifunction printer, a donation was made into the “shoe bank” fund that, at the conclusion of the company’s fiscal quarter, was used to purchase the children’s shoes.

"We are pleased to provide continued support to Center for Family Services, and the children and families they serve within our community," said Greg Van Acker, Vice President of U.S. Sales at OKI Data Americas. "The OKI U.S. Sales team was proud to exceed last quarter’s donation and has been motived to make a positive impact within our community."

Three New Monochrome Multifunction Printers from OKI Data Americas Receive Outstanding Achievement Awards for Energy Efficiency from Buyers Laboratory LLC

OKI Data Americas has been recognized by Buyers Laboratory LLC (BLI), receiving Outstanding Achievement Awards for Energy Efficiency for three of its new monochrome multifunction printers (MFPs) – the MB461, MB471 and MB491 – all of which were introduced earlier this year. These OKI MFPs were singled-out for having energy consumption rates between 55 and 58 percent lower than average. In fact, their energy consumption rates were the lowest among all devices tested within their group.

Contributing to these MFPs' low energy consumption rates are their automatic duplexing capabilities, in addition to their toner save mode, above average toner yields, and other useful, energy-saving functions – all of which underscore OKI's continuing commitment to developing high-performing printing solutions with a low total cost of ownership.
