What’s New: from OKI, Sharp NEC & Nice Label

Space saving technology from OKI

OKI Europe claims the new C650 is the world’s smallest A4 colour printer and delivers the performance, media handling and cost-efficiency of a class-leading workgroup device.

Powered by OKI’s digital LED technology, the C650 delivers high speed printing in rich LED colour. The device prints 35 pages per minute and can handle media as light as 60gsm and up to 256gsm, and from B8 up to 1.32m in length.

The C650’s space saving technology includes full front access which significantly reduces the amount of space needed to operate the printer compared to a device with a similar footprint by ensuring all operations are performed from the front of the device.

Reliability was a key area of focus in the C650’s development and the extensive use of high value componentry in place of plastic makes it one of the most robust printers in its class. Separate toners and long life drums enable a high duty cycle and maximum use of consumables.

Home workplace wellbeing

Sharp NEC Display Solutions has partnered with Fusion Spaces to help organisations foster better home-based working environments which embrace best practice for user wellbeing through an online assessment tool and a range of bundled home office technology solutions.

The assessment tool WorkFree, is built on three foundations: Assurance – to enable employers to meet their responsibilities and obligations to ensure that employees have a safe place to work. Comfort and quality – to ensure that home-based workers can set up an effective and comfortable working environment that suits them, and which gives access to a range of professional quality (but domestic scale) products to support and improve their physical and mental health and wellbeing. Freedom and empowerment – to ensure that home-based workers are empowered to manage their work and space.

The assessment method, which is based on employers and their staff completing surveys, requires that all three foundations are aligned and that there is broad agreement between the employer scores and employee scores for each of the foundations.


NiceLabel streamlines production of supply chain documents

NiceLabel has launched a new version of its label management solutions portfolio: version, 2019.3. The new software update will enable organisations to use just a single platform for designing and printing labels and supply chain documents, saving time and cost, and streamlining the whole production process.

The software previously offered out-of-the-box label design, allowing business users to quickly and easily design and print labels. The new version builds on this capability, enabling users, especially those working in factories or warehouses, to seamlessly design and print related supply chain documents, including delivery notes, pick lists, packing slips and invoices, from a single platform.

The latest release includes enhancements to NiceLabel’s SAP advanced business application programming (ABAP) package including the ability to print supply chain documents more easily; and exporting data sources for streamlined design and also features a connector to cloud-based software from Workday.
