“Rage rooms” have become all the rage these days, and an increasingly popular team-building exercise for offices that are fed up with unreliable tech.
The premise is simple; patrons don protective gear before entering a reinforced room filled with fragile objects for them to satisfyingly smash. As fun as this “therapy” may seem, however, as Psychology Today points out, conditioning ourselves to respond to stress with aggression can be quite harmful. The more effective path to stress relief is to address the problem directly. In this case, outfit the office with tech that won’t perpetually push your employees’ buttons.
It should come as no surprise that office printers are often at the receiving end of this aggression. Samsung’s multi-function printers (MFPs), however, are built to bring serenity to common – and stressful – printing problems.
As illustrated to hilarious effect in the classic cult comedy “Office Space”, a perpetually jamming printer can really get people’s blood boiling.
Of course, on top of stoking employees’ ire, paper jams are notorious for stifling productivity. Fortunately, Samsung’s MFPs, including the MultiXpress 7 (MX7) series and the new ProXpress M4560FX, feature a range of solutions specifically designed to combat jams – helping to ensure that the printers run smoothly, and that your workforce remains happy and productive.
These features include Pre-Regi Control, which helps to correctly align your printing paper before initiating a job, and Easy Jam Control, which lets you quickly and easily remove stuck sheets when a jam occurs. For more information on how Samsung’s printers reduce jams (and their associated headaches), check out this comprehensive rundown.
Loooooong Wait Times
As the saying goes, “opportunity waits for no one.” Savvy enterprises don’t have time to waste waiting on their tech, for fear of sacrificing productivity or letting a valuable opportunity slip away.
Samsung’s ProXpress M4560FX, in particular, was designed to reduce wait times and help you get the job done faster. In addition to featuring an advanced Dual Scan Document Feeder that provides ultra-high duplex scanning speeds (to the tune of 60 double-sided images per minute), the printer has been souped-up with a powerful 1.5 GHz Quad-Core CPU that allows it to breeze through prints quickly and easily.
All this firepower means that the ProXpress M4560FX takes just 25 seconds to boot, approximately 23 seconds to wake from sleep mode, and is capable of pumping out up to 45 pages per minute.
Perhaps just as important as a printer’s speed is its usability. The question is, does the printer make it easy for users to access key functions, or could its interface be described as anything but efficient?
Unlike other printers, which often feature interfaces that require a measure of guesswork, Samsung’s MFPs are navigated via the intuitive and customizable Smart UX Center.
Housed in a touchscreen display and powered by Android’s familiar, app-based interface, the Smart UX Center makes it easy to quickly access the settings, functions and documents you need.
Strong connectivity is another trait that modern businesses prize in their printers. A device that cannot offer users fast, reliable connections limits their ability to access and print the documents they need.
The MX7 features always-on connectivity and supports seamless connections. This is possible thanks to its 802.11ac-capable network chip, which is up to three times faster than the previous (802.11n) standard, and Bluetooth Low Energy connectivity. Together, this one-two punch ensures that users won’t have to wait to link up to their printer and get to work.
Lastly, few things are more frustrating than running out of toner when you’re printing documents on a deadline.
Thankfully, the MX7 series and ProXpress M4560FX feature a variety of simple solutions to this pesky problem. Easy Eco Driver, for example, can help enterprises reduce toner usage by up to 20 percent by allowing users to remove images from printed documents, or convert them into less toner-heavy formats.
The Samsung Mobile Print app makes it easy to remotely view a connected printer’s toner status, and Amazon Dash Replenishment allows customers in certain regions to set their printers to detect when toner levels are low and automatically order replacement cartridges. The ProXpress M4560FX also features ultra-high yield toner and drum capacities (40,000 pages for the former, 100,000 for the latter), which allow businesses to cut down on replacements and lower TCO.
Don’t let reliably unreliable printers hold your business back. Embrace a printer that’s built for long-haul performance, and will allow your office to print with peace of mind.
