KYOCERA Document Solutions America Introduces New Applications to Help Organizations Gain Control Over Data and Printing Costs While Helping Employees Work More Efficiently and Securely

FAIRFIELD, N.J. | October 21, 2014
KYOCERA Document Solutions America, one of the world’s leading document solutions companies, today announced the launch of Kyocera CentraQ Pro and CentraQ. The new business applications, developed by Kyocera, offer a variety of job release features that allow users to print documents more securely. In addition to secure job release, CentraQ Pro has additional monitoring and reporting capabilities that IT administrators can use to track print, copy, scan and fax usage by individual, device, or job code, which is ideal for cost recovery.

Both apps protect sensitive information with a Secure Job Release feature that requires user authentication at the Kyocera MFP or printer — thus minimizing the risk of unauthorized access to documents. The apps also minimize “bottlenecks” by freeing users to output files from any networked, CentraQ enabled Kyocera device.

“There are two key advantages to these powerful business apps,” says Danielle Wolowitz, senior director, product planning and product marketing for KYOCERA Document Solutions America. “CentraQ empowers users by letting them print and release their documents with confidence. CentraQ Pro provides administrators with valuable device data to help them optimize their printing environment, which includes cutting waste and costs.”

CentraQ and CentraQ Pro bring a range of benefits to any business. The applications:

Allow users to release print jobs from any Kyocera device on the network;
Protect confidential documents;
Integrate with HID card readers and smart phones with QR code readers for secure job release;
Restrict costly functions such as color printing (CentraQ Pro);
Help track employee usage, device usage, and job ID codes with simplified reporting capabilities (CentraQ Pro).
Pricing and Availability
Single device license MSRP is $362 for CentraQ Pro and $277 for CentraQ. CentraQ Pro and CentraQ are available through authorized KYOCERA dealers. To find a dealer, visit Kyocera’s dealer locator at www.kyoceradocumentsolutions.com/us.

The independent lab’s award criteria is rigorous and Kyocera’s advanced features across its entire range stood out, enabling them to achieve BLI’s prestigious ‘Winter Pick 2015’ awards.

These much sought-after accolades were given after extensive testing over several months. During the test period, the Kyocera products surpassed the others for reliability and gained top marks for image quality. Special mention was made of Kyocera’s software development platform, HyPAS; which allows for integration with an extensive number of Kyocera-developed business applications and third-party partner products. Examples includes Kyocera-developed CentraQ Pro, DMS Link and PinPoint Scan, as well as integration into Microsoft SharePoint offerings and Microsoft Exchange through Kyocera-developed connectors.

“At Kyocera our primary objective is to resolve an organization’s business challenges through a total document solutions approach.“ said Danielle Wolowitz, senior director corporate marketing for KYOCERA Document Solutions America. “This proven approach allows Kyocera to leverage its device technology, business applications and customized services in a way that satisfies the customer’s need for performance, reliability and value. We are honored to have once again won these prestigious awards; and that BLI has validated Kyocera’s role as a leading provider of document imaging technology for any office environment.“

Kyocera also received recognition for its crisp print quality and excellent utility features. The feature-rich, intuitive KX 6.0 print driver, standard across all devices, brings increased flexibility and efficiency to the office. The TASKalfa and ECOSYS products in the tests have strong green credentials, as noted by Martin Soane, BLI’s Lab manager, who stated, “When durability is combined with a high average toner yield and the long-life drum, users can expect minimal downtime and, ultimately, a very low cost of ownership.”

Outstanding Multifunctional Devices
“Kyocera delivered a remarkable performance this Pick season, taking home wins in nearly every category from mid- to high-volume in both monochrome and color”, said Pete Emory, BLI director of Laboratory Testing. “Time and again, Kyocera impresses us with their consistency across product lines and their clear emphasis on convenience for the end user,” he continued.

The TASKalfa 8001i, 3510i and 3010i were the recipients in the monochrome MFP category, while the TASKalfa 7551ci, 6551ci and 3551ci were the winners in the color MFP category. All in all, the devices stood out most for their exceptional reliability and ease of use. BLI analysts praised these models for convenient features such as the ability to add shortcuts to control panel menus with the push of a button and their redesigned print driver, which includes PCL and PostScript and the ability for users to seamlessly switch between them.

For its exemplary image quality and business application / solutions compatibility, the ECOSYS M3550idn has been honored with the BLI Winter 2015 Pick for Outstanding A4 Monochrome MFP for Mid-Size to Large Workgroups. This 52-ppm desktop multifunctional printer proved to be highly reliable, requiring no service of any kind over the 125,000 impression test duration.

Outstanding Achievement in Energy Efficiency
Kyocera continued to validate its commitment to ‘best in class’ energy efficiency. When compared to comparable monochrome MFPs in its speed class, both the ECOSYS M3560idn and ECOSYS M3550idn consumed 47 percent less energy than the competitive average, while the ECOSYS M6526cdn consumed 43 percent less energy than average. Each device also incorporates standard energy-saving features such as toner-save mode to help reduce toner use while printing and copying, and a proof mode which helps to reduce paper and consumable waste.
