The BLI especially commended: "The control panels can also be fully customised to allow users to access easily the MFP tools and workflows they use most. Additionally, users can print to the MFPs from their mobile devices", explains George Mikolay.

They can easily stand up to the rigours experienced in any busy office environment you can name."
