BRIDGEWATER, N.J., June 4, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --Brother International
Corporation, a leader in business technology, today introduced the
HL-L9200CDWT laser printer and MFC-L9550CDW laser all-in-one, compact machines
designed to meet the higher-volume, color printing demands of mid-sized
workgroups in small and medium businesses (SMB). Recognizing the evolving
printing and information sharing needs of SMBs, Brother created these models
to replace underutilized, centralized floor units. When used as part of an
overall workgroup printing strategy, these machines can provide improved
device access to a greater number of users, and can be customized with
workflow solutions to help enhance productivity - without compromising the
security that is critical to many businesses.

To help keep workgroup printing budgets in line, the HL-L9200CDWT and
MFC-L9550CDW offer a low acquisition cost when compared to many floor model
machine purchases or leases. Both models ship with a super high-yield black
toner cartridge that offers a low cost per page of just 2 cents^1, as well as
super high-yield color toner cartridges that provide a low 7.5 cent color cost
per page that's up to 50% less than comparable color laser models^2.

Both models feature the Brother Solutions Interface, which allows developers
to access the machine's internal web services to create customized workflow
solutions. One such example is the ability to integrate PaperCut™^3, a
powerful print cost allocation tool that helps save paper and reduce costs
through rules-based printing, making it perfect for the education and finance
markets. Additionally, the MFC-L9550CDW, through the Brother Control Center
interface lets compliance-driven verticals like healthcare send secure e-mails
quickly and easily without disrupting workflow, using Protected Trust^3
encrypted email services.

As providing a workforce with mobile access to information has become
increasingly important, SMBs are turning to the cloud to store and share
information. To address this, Brother included their award-winning^4 Web
Connect Interface in these machines to allow businesses to print from cloud
services^5, including DROPBOX, GOOGLE DRIVE™, BOX and ONEDRIVE®. The
MFC-L9550CDW also scans to EVERNOTE®, ONENOTE®, BR-DOCS, and more^5. Other
business-focused scanning destinations include: FTP, Secure FTP, Microsoft®
SharePoint®^6, e-mail server^7, network folder (CIFS), and more.

Knowing that protecting critical information is of the utmost importance to
many businesses, Brother designed these models with enterprise-level security
features often reserved for much more costly devices. Active Directory (using
LDAP) helps provide easy network user authentication, while Secure Function
Lock limits accessibility to machine functions on a per user or group basis,
for up to 100 users, to help prevent the unauthorized transfer of sensitive
information. The MFC-L9550CDW adds a built-in NFC Card Reader for simple,
walk-up authorization to release print jobs, and to access other machine
functions using a compatible NFC card or badge^8.

"These new machines present an outstanding opportunity for SMBs to move away
from the underutilized floor units that addressed the paper-intensive document
production needs of the past," said Steve Feldstein, Brother Director of
Marketing for SMB laser products. "By deploying multiple devices in closer
proximity to end users, businesses can increase accessibility to help boost
productivity in today's printing environment," he added. "We're excited to
offer these reliable color laser printers and all-in-ones as viable solutions
to meet the color-critical document handling demands of mid-sized workgroups."
