Design, functionality, security, and team collaboration come together in Sharp’s latest offering of high end commercial MFPs (multi-function printers), aimed at tackling the world’s most demanding print jobs.
The new A3 product line features a total of 11 MFPs -with capabilities that bring brilliant minds closer together, using collaborative tools like Microsoft Teams and native Universal Print- 7 that have been available since spring, and 4 new models that will be available this summer.
Additionally, new color and monochrome A4 MFPs which offer enhanced WPA3 encryption and deliver strong Wi-Fi security and unmatched protection against network breaches are available to ship immediately.
The A3 and A4 together represent Sharp’s latest line of multi-function printers for industries that are always demanding more, needing tasks faster, growing at unprecedented rates, and pushing the boundaries of what technology can do.
Over the last 100 years Sharp has pushed the boundaries of technology and the latest line of MFPs continues this tradition. The Sharp A3 combines sleek design and demanding functionality in a package that prints at 26-45 ppm, with the 55-65 ppm models to be released this summer.
