• Lexmark extends into SMB market with Two-Series product line

        • Lexmark is bringing its enterprise scale strengths to a new line of printers designed for the SMB market. The Lexmark Two Series is designed for micro-workgroups looking to simply and securely print, copy, fax and scan, all within a compact and easy-to-use device.

          Typically ranging from two to four people, micro-workgroups include small businesses, start-ups, and branch offices or franchises. Two monochrome products in the line have been launched, the single function Lexmark B2236dw and the multi-function Lexmark MB2236adw with additional scanning, copying and faxing functionality.

          Sammy Kinlaw, Lexmark Vice President, Worldwide Channel and OEM sales said, “no matter the size of the organisation, Lexmark is committed to helping our customers minimise the cost and IT burden of their printers. Small businesses can’t afford to waste time or money updating their IT equipment every year. Lexmark intentionally engineered these devices to be tough workhorses, packed with power and speed, and built to last.” 

          Micro-workgroups and small businesses remain an important growth segment in the UK. The Federation of Small Businesses estimates that 2018 saw the number of small businesses grow by 31,000. Marking Lexmark’s entry into this segment, the printers launched today feature rapid monochrome output up to 34 pages per minute, plus standard two-sided printing. Standard Wi-Fi offers enhanced connectivity and support for mobile users, while Lexmark’s full-spectrum security ensures the same level of award-winning security and protection typically reserved for enterprise-class devices.  

          Together, the two devices provide high performance in a lightweight, compact design. Easy to move or tuck into tight spaces, the Lexmark B2236dw comes in at just under 7kg, while the multi-function Lexmark MB2236adw weighs 10kg. In addition to printing, the MB2236adw also scans up to 23 pages per minute.

          Chris White, Lexmark Director of Product Marketing added, “despite their small size and weight, we’ve retained the signature Lexmark features that our customers know and love. This includes extending Lexmark’s enterprise-class full-spectrum security to the SMB market, as well as standard Wi-Fi and mobile connectivity. With energy management features to reduce power consumption, these printers are friendly both to the environment and small business budgets.”

          These devices will be sold through the Lexmark Global Partner network and can be ordered directly from global distributors. Lexmark expects to announce availability of additional Two Series devices later this year.
