In one of their most significant product announcements in recent memory, Epson New Zealand has entered the commercial office printing market with a full range of A4 and A3 business printers that are designed to increase efficiencies and productivity while helping SMBs and SMEs to lower their impact on the environment.
WorkForce Pro WF-C579R
Epson NZ is introducing eleven new models in their new business printing portfolio, starting with the entry level WorkForce Pro WF-C579R, mid-level WorkForce Pro WF-C879RTC and high-end WorkForce WF-C21000. These new models are fully supported by a cloud-based printer fleet management tool which provides extensive insights into each device to improve service support and operational efficiencies.
WorkForce Pro WF-C879RTC
Each new printer launched today is designed specifically for busy offices with low environmental impact, low intervention and high productivity. All printers are powered by Epson’s signature and award-winning Heat-Free PrecisionCore™ inkjet technology and all are specifically designed to meet the needs of corporate and government enterprises.
Where organisations are looking to reduce their carbon footprint, meet their corporate social responsibility objectives, or just play their part in reducing CO2 emissions, these new Epson devices are the ideal choice to help address all of these goals and more.

Epson Australia and New Zealand Managing Director, Craig Heckenberg, said, "Epson is a trusted brand that is recognised globally as a sustainable company with a strong commitment to creating value for our customers and society. One way in which Epson is helping to create a sustainable future for all of us is through our patented Heat-Free technology which uses up to 94% less energy when compared to an equivalent laser printer or copier."
Office equipment which include printers and copiers represent about 48% of the total energy bill for a typical office-, which is a significant operational cost and burden on the environment. Heat-Free Technology is already helping industries around the world move towards a more sustainable future and Epson are confident with the support of their customers that they can achieve the same result when it comes to office printing.
This new commercial printer line-up also marks Epson’s continued commitment to providing its business partners with cutting edge solutions that help future-proof businesses and differentiate themselves in the marketplace.
Epson NZ General Manager, Kaden McCaffery, added "Businesses demand simple, reliable and economical solutions and we strive to provide the resources and support that our partners require to stay competitive."
Spearheading Epson NZ’s drive into the office printing market is Fadi Nannis who joins the company as Business Development Manager for the newly created Document Solutions team.
Nannis said, ""The introduction of these new printers demonstrates the commitment Epson NZ has to the growth and success of our channel partners. I am looking forward to building new, long-term business partnerships with companies that share a similar vision and similar values for a sustainable future."

1 Replacement ink pack yields are estimated based on ISO/IEC 24711 test in Default Mode printing continuously. Ink pack yields vary considerably for reasons including images printed, print settings, temperature and humidity. Yields may be lower when printing infrequently or predominantly with one ink colour. All ink colours are used for printing and printer maintenance, and all colours have to be installed for printing. For print quality, part of the ink from the included ink packs is used for printer start-up and a variable amount of ink remains in the ink pack after the "replace ink pack" signal. 2 Black and colour print speeds are measured in accordance with ISO/IEC 24734. Actual print times will vary based on factors including system configuration, software, and page complexity.
3 4.3 times more prints is comparing Epson high-yield inks (86,000 pages black / 50,000 colour) with the 20,000 page yield average of a competitor model in the top 7 highest selling A3 colour MFDs in the 21-30ppm speed segment in the Australian market (Source :IDC November 2019).
