Kyocera Document Solutions Inc., one of the world’s leading document solutions companies, today announced an unprecedented win from the experts at Keypoint Intelligence – Buyers Lab (BLI): the inaugural Award for Most Reliable Color Copier MFP Brand.
Reliability Across the Entire Line
The award is part of an entirely new category at BLI, which typically evaluates reliability of individual devices. This award provides customers with a new perspective on the brands they choose – one that looks across the full line of devices. The criteria are evaluated over the long term; the next series of these awards will be presented in 2021.
Every Kyocera Device Scores a Perfect 10
BLI factored in six-years-worth of data from 2012 to 2018, reviewing hundreds of machines, from every vendor’s line. They looked at all devices in the A3 color line-up, calculating misfeeds, service calls, and total tested impressions. Kyocera emerged the clear winner, with BLI calling the company’s line a “shoo-in.”
“All of Kyocera’s color copiers demonstrated excellent reliability, with every device scoring 10 out of 10,” noted George Mikolay, Associate Director of Copiers/Production for Keypoint Intelligence – Buyers Lab. “With a low misfeed rate and zero service interventions required, Kyocera color copier MFPs are designed to keep users productive.”
