Fraser Announces New Sharp MFPs With Alexa Integration


Sharp Launches New MFPs

Fraser is pleased to announce the launch of eleven new Sharp MFPs to their new line of Advanced and Essentials Series color document systems for the technology-driven workplace.  The eleven new models offer Sharp's award-winning, easy-to-use touchscreen display, which is featured across 30+ models in the Sharp MFP lineup, and Sharp adds exciting new features for conversational artificial intelligence (AI), cloud integration and security enhancements.

The new MFP Voice feature, powered by Amazon Alexa, enables users to interact with the machine using simple verbal commands.  These new color models also easily integrate with today's complex network environments and offer quick access to an expanded list of cloud services that include Box and Dropbox.  Additionally, Adobe Embedded Print Technology enables users to direct print PDF files from a variety of sources with greater performance and rendering accuracy.  Sharp's new Application Portal, available in the Spring of 2019, will allow administrators to easily add new applications and update existing ones right from the touchscreen of the MFP.  Additionally, new models are equipped with enhanced productivity features, such as the ability to feed up to 50 envelopes from the standard paper drawer.

The new Advanced and Essentials Series also deliver leading edge security features such as a firmware attack prevention and a self-recovery capability, which can identify a malicious intrusion and restore the machine firmware to its original state.  A new whitelisting feature helps protect the machine's file system from unauthorized access.  Additionally, administrators can centrally manage select settings at the device using Active Directory® Group Policy.

"This is an exciting time at Sharp, as we roll out a new line of color workgroup MFPs that offer greater integration, enhanced workflow capability and voice integration to meet the demands of today's technology-driven workplace," said Shane Coffey, Vice President of Product Management at Sharp.  "Our focus continues to be to provide quality MFPs that deliver superior productivity, performance and ease-of-use.  We're proud to continue that tradition with this new lineup of Advanced and Essentials Series models.

Fraser is pleased to be the premier provider of Sharp MFPs in Pennsylvania, New Jersey and the surrounding area.  For more information on these new Sharp models, please contact us today!
