Mobile Connectivity, Seamless Integration

Other areas of scrutiny in the BLI 2017 Summer Picks were mobile support, and seamless integration with embedded applications – areas crucial to today’s users, and categories in which the Kyocera devices also excelled.

“Through Kyocera’s HyPAS platform, businesses can leverage embedded and integrated solutions to reduce costs and boost security and user productivity,” said Mikolay.

The devices also support mobile printing via Wi-Fi Connect, NFC, Apple AirPrint™, Google Cloud Print™, and KYOCERA Mobile Print to accommodate on-the-go and BYOD-centric workers. 

Small Workgroups to Large Workgroups

The seven award-winning Kyocera color devices offer excellent value, providing professional output designed to meet the needs of companies in any industry. From small workgroups that require versatility, to marketing-focused groups that demand high-resolution and brilliant color, to larger document-intensive environments that need speed and reliability, these Kyocera color MFPs and ECOSYS printers exceed expectations.
