Keypoint Intelligence - Buyers Lab evaluates six years of data for hundreds of devices in determining #1 overall dependability.
FAIRFIELD, N.J. – July 11, 2018 – KYOCERA Document Solutions America, Inc., one of the world’s leading document solutions companies, today announced an unprecedented win from the experts at Keypoint Intelligence - Buyers Lab: the inaugural Award for Most Reliable Color Copier MFP Brand.
“It’s truly an honor for us,” said KYOCERA Document Solutions America President & CEO Yukio Ikeda. “Reliability has always been a hallmark of the Kyocera name. To have our entire line of A3 color devices recognized in this way – and by such an esteemed authority – is a wonderful validation of what we stand for as a 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.”
