Toshiba's Eco Hybrid MFP Wins BLI's "Winter 2018 Outstanding Achievement in Innovation" Award

January 23, 2018

January 2018, Toshiba Tec today announced that Buyers Laboratory (BLI), part of Keypoint Intelligence, has selected the Toshiba e-STUDIO3508LP for the “Winter 2018 Outstanding Achievement in Innovation” award. This Hybrid MFP is a unique A3 multifunction system (MFP), which combines conventional and erasable printing. The erasable printing allows regular office paper to be reused, which can significantly reduce the paper consumption – and thus the carbon footprint – of a company. In October 2017, BLI rated the Hybrid MFP “Highly Recommended” after extensive testing in their labs. Back then it was the “exemplary ease of use, robust security features and superb image quality” which impressed them. BLI now acknowledges the innovativeness of the technology behind the e-STUDIO3508LP. 

“For any organisation committed to maintaining a green work ethos, Toshiba’s latest generation model, the e-STUDIO3508LP, is worth a look,” said George Mikolay, Associate Director of Copiers/Production for Keypoint Intelligence – Buyers Lab. “The ability to render content printed with erasable blue toner transparent, and then reuse standard paper five times (or more) within a single integrated system, is truly unique and innovative in the marketplace. What’s more, the unit’s dual-toner system provides added flexibility for users so that higher value documents can be printed using black toner.”

Since the launch of the product in June 2017, the Hybrid MFP has received several awards all around the world. This shows the growing awareness for sustainable print and document management and the importance to offer products and solutions which focus on how to use valuable resources more efficiently.

“We are thrilled that our Hybrid MFP has once again been recognised with an award,” says Deyon Antoine, Product Manager at Toshiba Tec. “BLI acknowledging our pioneering technology as an Outstanding Achievement in Innovation confirms our belief that in today’s world companies care more and more about the environmental impact their business has. When developing the Hybrid MFP our aim was to support this more sustainable and responsible approach of companies with strong commitments to corporate social responsibilities.”

The e-STUDIO3508LP is one of three systems in Toshiba’s latest Hybrid MFP series. For more information, please visit https://www.toshibatec.co.uk/our-products/toshiba-hybrid-mfp.
