A Sustainable Document Solution with SHARP’s A3 Multifunctional Printers – BP Series

 

In an era where environmental consciousness and technological innovation converge, the role of sustainability in the corporate landscape has never been more crucial. SHARP is leading the way with a groundbreaking line of sustainable multifunctional printers (MFPs) that redefine the office printing landscape. Our commitment to a greener tomorrow is evident in every aspect of these cutting-edge devices, from design and functionality to the positive impact they bring to businesses and the planet. Here are the features of SHARP's BP-series multifunctional printers that promote sustainability.

 

Up to 27% lesser power consumption

SHARP's sustainable multifunctional printers are engineered to minimize environmental impact without compromising on performance. Through advanced energy-efficient technologies, these MFPs significantly reduce energy consumption*, contributing to lower carbon emissions and a smaller carbon footprint.

*𝘔𝘰𝘥𝘦𝘭𝘴 𝘪𝘯 𝘵𝘩𝘦 𝘉𝘗-𝘴𝘦𝘳𝘪𝘦𝘴 𝘸𝘦𝘳𝘦 𝘵𝘦𝘴𝘵𝘦𝘥 𝘢𝘤𝘳𝘰𝘴𝘴 𝘨𝘭𝘰𝘣𝘢𝘭𝘭𝘺 𝘢𝘯𝘥 𝘳𝘦𝘴𝘶𝘭𝘵𝘦𝘥 𝘪𝘯 27% 𝘭𝘦𝘴𝘴𝘦𝘳 𝘱𝘰𝘸𝘦𝘳 𝘤𝘰𝘯𝘴𝘶𝘮𝘱𝘵𝘪𝘰𝘯 𝘢𝘴 𝘤𝘰𝘮𝘱𝘢𝘳𝘦𝘥 𝘵𝘰 𝘱𝘳𝘦𝘷𝘪𝘰𝘶𝘴 𝘮𝘰𝘥𝘦𝘭𝘴.

 

Significantly reduce paper usage and wastage

SHARP's future-workplace MFPs offer double-sided (duplex) printing, which literally cuts paper usage by half. Printing on both sides of a sheet means you use less paper which positively impacts the environment. This feature can be configured as default on the MFPs.

Equipped with serverless 'Print-Release*' functionality, the all-new SHARP MFPs ensure the confidentiality of the print job is maintained and reduces paper wastage and related costs. Under the function, the user gets to hold the print job on the MFP and release the same at his chosen timing and setting. Alternatively, the IT administrators can implement a pin-based 'Print-Release' policy to add a layer of security.

In addition, the new MFPs can be configured to enable automatic paper size detection and skew adjustment, which ensures well-oriented print job execution and thereby reduces reprint requirements due to human error and substantially reduces the high cost of erroneous printing.

*𝘖𝘵𝘩𝘦𝘳 𝘤𝘰𝘮𝘮𝘰𝘯 𝘵𝘦𝘳𝘮𝘴 𝘧𝘰𝘳 '𝘗𝘳𝘪𝘯𝘵-𝘙𝘦𝘭𝘦𝘢𝘴𝘦' 𝘢𝘳𝘦: 𝘍𝘰𝘭𝘭𝘰𝘸 𝘔𝘦 𝘗𝘳𝘪𝘯𝘵 / 𝘗𝘶𝘭𝘭-𝘗𝘳𝘪𝘯𝘵 / 𝘗𝘳𝘪𝘯𝘵 𝘙𝘰𝘢𝘮𝘪𝘯𝘨.

 

Up to 68% lesser ozone emission

Our commitment to environmental stewardship and cutting-edge innovation has led to a remarkable achievement. Our latest line of multifunctional printers boasts an impressive reduction* in ozone emission.

SHARP's BP-Series Multifunctional Printers are Energy Star version 3.0 certified. Energy Star certification ensures that products maintain a high level of performance and reliability while using less energy. Consumers can trust that they are getting efficient products without sacrificing functionality.

Secured document workplace matters: Ensuring the safety of your sensitive data

 

With the rise of digitalization, new strategies are being created to attack businesses, and new malware scripts are being developed. These threats can lead to data breaches, financial losses, and reputational damage, all of which can have long-lasting consequences for a business. Office printers can often be the weak link in an organization's security.

Office printers now have the capability to connect to the network (local and internet) to provide cloud storage, scan-to-email and mobile printing functionalities. Businesses and organizations should consider these factors as why it is essential to have a secured office printer:

Protect data and and confidential information

Network-connected printers can be a target for cybercriminals who want to gain access to your organization's network. Printers often store data on their hard drives, including print jobs, user credentials, and other sensitive information. Without proper security measures in place, this data can be accessed by hackers and used for malicious purposes. Having a printer with robust security features such as server authentication, whitelisting, and virus detection can help prevent these attacks, ensuring that your organization's data remains secure.

Protect brand reputation

Reputation is an organization's overall perception in the eyes of its customers, stakeholders, and the general public. A data breach or cybersecurity incident can erode customer trust and confidence in the organization's ability to protect their personal information. They may hesitate to do business with the organization, leading to declining revenue and profits. A printer with robust security features can help protect the organization's reputation and prevent financial losses.

Enhance productivity

A secured printer can help reduce downtime caused by printer malfunctions, cyber-attacks, and other security-related issues. It can enhance collaboration by enabling employees to share and print documents securely. This can augment teamwork and allow employees to work together more efficiently, leading to increased productivity.

Boost confidence

Implementing robust security measures, including secure printers, demonstrates an organization's commitment to protecting sensitive information. This can enhance trust among customers, partners, and stakeholders who rely on the organization to handle their data securely. A strong reputation for data security can positively impact business relationships and attract new customers.

 

As more businesses adopt a hybrid working model and rely on web connected technologies, having secure network connected printers has become more essential than ever.

"We believe that a secured document workplace matters and understand that businesses need reliable and secure printing solutions" said Stanley Samuel, Deputy General Manager at SHARP Middle East and Africa. He further added "With SHARP multifunctional printers, we offer our customers peace of mind that comes with knowing that their data is well-protected."

SHARP sets a new standard for printer security: offering a wide-range of security features, including data encryption, BIOS firmware security, server authentication, scheduled data eraser, opt. anti-virus/anti-malware kit and other industry standard security features. With SHARP's enterprise security, users can be assured that their sensitive data is secured.

How to choose the right printer for your ever-evolving organization

 

Choosing the right printer for your organization is definitely a cumbersome process. Nowadays, more and more organizations are opting for multifunctional printers that can print, copy, scan, and fax to meet heir various needs with a single device. The technology of these printers is developing rapidly, and new functionalities are coming to the market. Are you in the stage of considering to purchase new printers? This list will help you make the right choice.

1.) Determine your needs

Before choosing the right printer, identify your organization's printing, copy, and scanning needs. Determine the volume of printing required, the types of documents needed, and whether color printing is necessary. Consider the paper handling capabilities of the printer, such as the size and capacity of the paper trays. Knowing your printing needs will help you choose the right printer for your organization.

2.) Sustainability

Choosing a sustainable printer can reduce environmental impact by using fewer resources and operating more efficiently. It is ideal to look for printers with sustainable features such as 'energy-saving' and eco-friendly settings, 'auto paper adjustment' to avoid print or copy mistakes, two-sided (duplex) print to reduce paper consumption, hold print to avoid paper wastage and other features promoting sustainability.

3.) Connectivity

With the rise of digitalization and hybrid work styles, employees are more fond of web and mobile connectivity. Printers with the capability to connect with cloud-based services can streamline document management processes. This means that your team can easily scan, print, and share documents with each other, all from a centralized platform. With a mobile-connected printer, users can quickly print documents without having to go through a computer or other devices. This can save time, leading to increased efficiency in your organization.

4.) Security

Printers can be a target for cybercriminals who want to gain access to your organization's network. By having a printer with robust security features, you can ensure that information is protected from unauthorized access, theft, or data breaches. This can help your organization maintain compliance with industry regulations.

5.) Cost of Ownership

Consider the total cost of ownership of the printer, including the initial cost, ongoing maintenance, and ink or toner replacement costs. A printer that requires costly ink replacement may not be cost-effective in the long run. Look for a printer with essential features such as scanning, copying, faxing, and duplex printing. A multifunctional printer with these features can save your organization money, eliminating the need to purchase separate devices for each task.

Investing in a sustainable multifunctional printer with cloud connectivity, mobile printing capabilities, and robust security features can help the company reduce its environmental impact, improve productivity, and enhance the entire office security. Keeping in line with these key requirements, Sharp offers multifunctional printers with features that can benefit organizations based on their specific needs.
