Lock Colour Usage
Ideal for the office environment, each colour laser printer is equipped with the Lock Colour Usage feature giving corporate administrators the ability to restrict colour print usage by user. Users are required to enter a password to print colour documents. This feature enables business owners to maintain control against employee usage abuse. Thus reduces unnecessary colour printing by un-authorised users, allowing businesses to lower toner consumption and saves toner wastage.

Fax forwarding and broadcasting features to reduce communication expenses
Conventionally, long-distance fax transmissions to ten different destinations requires payment of transmission fees covering the ten destinations. But by combining the faxing and broadcasting functions, you can have the same ten fax transmissions charged as one long-distance fax transmission with the remaining nine transmissions charged at short-distance transmission rates.

*Note that the short-distance fees are borne by the sender.

PC-FAX saves paper
Documents and images stored in a PC can be faxed directly without the need for printing. No printing means no paper use – thus saving the environment and saving costs.

As for incoming faxes, PC-Fax stores them in its memory even when the user’s PC is turned off. When the PC is switched back on, user can choose to print or discard any faxes without having to print them out. These digital features provide convenience while eliminating toner and paper wastage.

Four functions in one machine

The first machine we purchased was a fax machine. Then, we bought a copier, a printer, a scanner and other products. We found ourselves surrounded by machines. Now, our office space is cluttered with obstructive PC connections and power cords. More importantly, we have to do something about the places where consumables are kept and about the costs.
A Brother multi-function printer packs all the functions necessary for business into a compact body. It requires less space and uses fewer consumables, one interconnection and one cable. It keeps our workspace neat and tidy. I guess it also helped increase our work efficiency.

What should I do?

Making good use of a single sheet

The things that bothers me most is the volume of paper consumed every day. Our office prints a considerable number of documents, most of which are eventually shredded. From the standpoint of costs and environmental impact, it is nothing but a waste of paper.
Combining auto duplexing printing with layout printing helps reduce paper consumption. For example, with duplexing printing, printing four pages on a single sheet compacts eight pages onto a single sheet. This makes the printer easy on our pocket and our workplace environmentally friendly.
