These new enterprise-class products provide additional levels of business
productivity through an open platform, offering enhanced workflow integration
and document management across the business.  For added flexibility
organisations can tailor their device to achieve the precise configuration
they need for optimum print effectiveness.

Over the past 12 months, OKI has added to its SMB offering with a series of
products which have been well-received by micro, small and medium sized
business users. As a result, OKI has increased market share, reinforcing the
company's reputation for its customer-centric approach in providing businesses
with reliable, high-quality and cost-effective print solutions. "Our new
portfolio of A4, colour MFPs combine enterprise-class functionality, security
and flexibility with comprehensive document workflow support," confirms Harry
Takahashi, managing director, OKI Europe Ltd. "This will deliver significant
workflow efficiencies and cost savings, as organisations improve the way
documents are handled, managed and processed."

The MC700 Series from OKI, at the heart of business productivity

The MC700 Series comes with an open platform that enables customisation of the
user interface in order to integrate all document-related tasks seamlessly
into the organisation's enterprise document workflow. Benefits include lower
costs, together with improved productivity and efficiencies, as the business
is able to move from a manual paper-based workflow to automated digital flow.

In addition, these devices include software for effective device management
tasks such as remote diagnostics, document output controls including print
tracking and authentication and document retrieval and collaboration.

"Different organisations have diverse priorities," says Takahashi. "Some will
focus on productivity and efficiency gains, whilst others will look to
identify and control print usage or look for an environmentally-friendly
solution with low running and maintenance costs. In each case, OKI's highly
flexible range of colour MFPs can be tailored to meet all these differing

High performance, unrivalled flexibility

The MC700 Series includes the following models:

  *MC760, MC770 and MC780 which are available in 2 variants - the standard dn
    model and the dfn model which comes with an internal finisher for
    automated collating and stapling of documents . An optional convenience
    stapler is also available to facilitate post production finishing. All
    models come with a 23cm, colour, backlit, LCD touch screen with an
    intuitive, easy to use control panel.

The MC700 Series delivers print speeds of up to 40ppm and both the scanner and
the print engine are based on OKI's LED technology. Other enterprise-class
functionality includes duplex printing and scanning, flexible scan
destinations and formats and large capacity 160GB hard drive as standard.
These eco-friendly MFPs have advanced security features including secure PIN
printing, data encryption and disk wiping and a secure print with card release
option. Each product is backed by OKI Europe's three-year warranty on
registration of the product within 30 days.  

The advanced ergonomic design enables easy access to consumables and offers a
wide variety of configurations, including internal finisher, optional paper
trays for flexible paper capacity and paper feed options.

"In every aspect of the MC700 Series design, our 'no compromise' approach has
been to offer customers ultra-high productivity with the greatest possible
flexibility, allowing our customers to easily configure their print solutions
in a way which precisely meets their business needs," confirms Takahashi.

"These enterprise-class MFPs are not only an important addition to our product
portfolio they will also significantly strengthen our managed print services
