Apeos C4030 and Apeos C5240 printers awarded for faultless reliability, impressive ease-of-use, fast print and competitive scan speeds
SYDNEY, 10 October 2023 – FUJIFILM Business Innovation Asia Pacific Pte. Ltd. has been awarded the Buyers Lab (BLI) 2023 A4 Pick Awards from Keypoint Intelligence for Apeos C5240 and C4030 printers.
The Apeos C5240 and Apeos C4030 printers earned this recognition for their impressive usability, professional colour image quality and flexible mobile and cloud options which facilitate effective collaboration anywhere, especially for small to mid-sized workgroups.
“The Fujifilm Apeos C5240 is a highly reliable device that can handle large volumes without misfeeding or malfunctioning, as was proven in our 158,000-impression test. Similarly, the Fujifilm Apeos C4030, produced 88,000 impressions without any misfeed or handling throughout the testing.” Said Tony Maceri, Senior Lab Technician at Keypoint Intelligence. “The Fujifilm Apeos C5240 delivered impressive print and scan speeds, along with smaller than average scan file sizes for efficient digitisation. What’s more, both devices produced consistent, bright and smooth business colour output.”
The Apeos C5240 and Apeos C4030 support hybrid workstyles with mobile and cloud-based solutions, enabling connectivity at any location. Both models are compatible with Microsoft Universal Print which eliminates print servers and allows users to print from anywhere without having to install a printer driver.
“Small and mid-size workgroups looking for a colour A4 MFP will benefit from the many features offered by the Fujifilm Apeos C4030,” said Rachel Dean, Technical Editor in Keypoint Intelligence’s Office Group.
“Tools that enable collaboration for hybrid and office workers are vital, and the mobile and cloud connectivity offered can be accessed with confidence that workflows are secure. A well-designed print driver and an intuitive user interface (UI) make the workstation and walk-up tasks an absolute breeze. On top of everything else, the complete value proposition of the Fujifilm Apeos C4030 makes it an obvious choice for a Pick Award from Keypoint Intelligence.”
To mitigate evolving document security risks, the Apeos C5240 and Apeos C4030 printers are equipped with a host of security features to ensure optimal protection of confidential information. This includes compatibility with new WPA3 protocol for robust security of wireless LANs and adopting the TPM (Trusted Platform Module) 2.0*1 security chip, which conforms to the latest encryption regulations from the Trusted Computing Group (TCG)*2. Both printers have surpassed the strict benchmarks of Keypoint Intelligence’s Security Validation Test for Device Penetration*3.
“At FUJIFILM Business Innovation, rethinking what we do and how we innovate to surpass evolving customers’ expectations, is at the heart of what we do.” said Yoshihisa Okutsu, General Manager, Device Technology Business, FUJIFILM Business Innovation Asia Pacific. “The Fujifilm Apeos C5240 and Apeos C4030 are equipped with similar major functions and security capabilities as the A3 MFP, but cleverly presented in a sleek and compact manner to combat user and space limitation challenges that small-and-medium enterprises face. We are extremely excited and driven with this recognition on our A4 MFP series and will endeavour to help our customers optimise both their internal and external customer experiences with our extensive portfolio of products, solutions and services.”
