Epson, a digital imaging and printing solutions provider, has introduced three new business inkjet models in Singapore to serve the SOHO and office environment.

Designed to save desktop space and lower printing costs, the ultra-compact Epson WorkForce series features automatic document feeders (ADFs) and Epson Connect, which allows users to print using their mobile devices.

The new WorkForce series of printers offer easy and flexible shared printing through Wi-Fi, while the added advantage of Wi-Fi Direct means that the printer can connect to up to four devices without the need for a router. Users are also able to access Epson Connect, which offers:

· iPrint (printing and scanning to and from mobile devices)

· Email print (sending documents to an email from which the printer will print)

· Remote print (printing by sending documents through the Internet)

Other cloud printing services these new all-in-one printers are capable of include
Apple AirPrint and Google Cloud Print.

Equipped with a built-in LCD screen, all three models are able to operate as standalone machines, allowing users to easily scan, copy, fax, change printer settings or setup and operate the printer without a PC.

The WorkForce WF-2651 and WF-2661 feature Epson’s PrecisionCore Technology that is equipped with versatile, high-speed solutions for office printing. Quality printouts are produced at 33 pages-per-minute (ppm)*. Similarly, the WF-2631 prints at 5,760dpi resolution and 34 ppm.

While the WF-2631 boasts a small footprint, allowing it to fit perfectly well within the limited office space of SOHO businesses, the WF-2661 offer even greater convenience with near field communication (NFC) capabilities, the first printer from Epson to offer this functionality. With this feature, users can conveniently print or scan by touching a compatible device to the printer.

All three units feature an ADF with a 30 sheet capacity holding capacity. Coupled with the Broadcast Fax and PC-fax functions, which allows you to send a fax digitally from your computer, sending and receiving faxes becomes a breeze. The printers also use Epson’s DURABrite Ultra pigment inks that produce high quality prints that are smudge, fade and water resistant.
