Epson America, Inc., a leading provider of business imaging solutions, today announced the Replaceable Ink Pack System – an entirely new way for workgroups and SMB offices to approach color printing. Utilizing this unique design, Epson’s new WorkForce® Pro WF-R8590 and WF-R5690 multi-function printers and WF-R5190 printer deliver up to 75,000 printed pages1 in both black and color before the ink needs to be replaced. These printing solutions allow customers to print high impact color documents with low operating costs and intervention rates.
“Epson’s revolutionary approach transforms office printing by allowing businesses to focus on running their business, not on managing printer supplies,” said Larry Trevarthen, director, Business Imaging, Epson America, Inc. “Epson’s new printing solutions allow IT managers to bring affordable color printing to remote offices and workgroups while reducing the hassles normally associated with printer management.”
