PRESS RELEASE: Lexmark Canada's New All-In-One Printer, Pinnacle
RICHMOND HILL, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - July 27, 2010) - Lexmark Canada, a division of Lexmark International, Inc. (NYSE:LXK) today introduced a new addition, Pinnacle, to its award-winning line of professional all-in-one (AIO) inkjet printers.
Pinnacle, like the other Professional Series AIOs in the line, is designed to help small to medium-sized businesses (SMBs) increase productivity while saving them time and valuable resources. Additionally, Pinnacle features 4-in-1 capability, a Web-connected(1), easy-to-navigate 4.3 inch capacitive touch screen, and the world's lowest-cost black ink(2).
"The introduction of Pinnacle builds upon the momentum and success Lexmark has garnered with its award-winning touch screen AIOs, providing yet another model that enables our customers to go way beyond printing," said Paul Rooke, Lexmark executive vice president and president of its Imaging Solutions Division.
"Customers have told us that the cost of supplies is their primary pain point when it comes to printing. Combining our $5.75 CDN MSRP cartridge pricing with the ease-of-use and functionality of Pinnacle's touch screen menu and SmartSolutions helps our customers be more efficient, saving both time and money," Rooke added.
The Lexmark Pinnacle was awarded an Outstanding Business Inkjet 2010 Pick Award by Buyer's Laboratory Inc, a leading independent office products test lab and business consumer advocate, as well as a 2010 Hot Tech Demo Award at the Fifth Annual Small Business Summit 2010. The Summit's judges recognized Pinnacle with a 2010 award for: "providing unique ways to save money with $5.75 CDN black ink cartridges that offer A HIGH YIELD OF 500 PAGES(3), - increasing productivity with one-touch SmartSolutions and - offering peace-of-mind with an industry-leading five-year warranty(4)."
The $5.75 black ink cartridge delivers an immediate impact on SMBs' bottom line. Lexmark's SmartSolutions, an array of disruptive applications that are changing the perception and expectation of the inkjet AIO category, also add value to Pinnacle. In addition to print, scan, copy and fax functions, SmartSolutions include shortcuts such as Business Card Scanning(5), workflows and unique apps to expedite day-to-day office tasks such as Scan to Evernote, TripIt and ESPB/BBC feeds.
