LONG BEACH, Calif. – June 5, 2020 – There is no denying how people work and learn dramatically shifted in a very short period of time – on both professional and personal levels. Even as companies begin to safely reopen their doors, 74 percent are now shifting to allow some employees to work remotely on a permanent basis.1 As we move towards more hybrid workplaces, it is important for employees to easily gain access to the right tools available to ensure productivity, regardless of location. To help people adapt to this “new normal” work environment, Epson provides highly reliable and innovative technologies to help alleviate stress and enable greater productivity wherever they set up shop at home.
“We understand the new challenges and added stress many people are going through during this unique time, and Epson wants to help,” said Mike Isgrig, vice president, North America Consumer Sales and Marketing, Epson America, Inc. “We want to help ease this transition with high-quality technology and tools to help take the stress out of the home-based workday.”
From the office to home and back again, as people navigate new ways to work and learn, Epson offers several solutions to help maintain productivity and enjoy entertainment during down time:
- EcoTank® Cartridge-Free Printers Remove Out of Ink Frustration: From printing business proposals to lesson plans and homework assignments, the last thing anyone in the household wants to worry about during these times is running out of ink. Luckily, the EcoTank ET-4760 cartridge-free all-in-one Supertank printer comes with up to 2 years of ink in the box and with each replacement ink set.2 These replacement ink sets eliminate the need to purchase replacement ink cartridges, easing the hassle of going to a store last minute and waiting in long lines. Featuring easy-to-fill, supersized ink tanks and savings of up to 90 percent with low-cost replacement ink bottles vs. ink cartridges, about 1 cent per color ISO page vs. about 20 cents with cartridges,3 allowing everyone in the family the freedom to print in color with zero cartridge waste. Powered by PrecisionCore Heat-Free TechnologyTM, this full-featured Supertank printer also has wired and wireless connectivity to help people stay productive and focus on what’s important.
- Document Scanners Streamline Paperwork and File Sharing: The WorkForce® ES-500WR receipt and document scanner can help professionals wirelessly scan various paper documents directly to a smartphone, tablet, computer, and online cloud storage accounts,4 such as DropboxTM and Google DriveTM. The ES-500WR addresses key issues of professionals working from home, including the lack of access to the office document scanner to quickly digitize and organize hard-copy prints like invoices, expense reports, receipts, business and ID cards, and documents up to 8.5 x 240”. The ES-500WR breezes through stacks of documents with a 50-page auto document feeder and speeds of up to 35 pages per minute.5 The included Epson ScanSmart Accounting Edition Software6 automatically extracts and categorizes key data from receipts. The proprietary software allows professionals to easily organize and export finance data to third party software such as QuickBooks®, TurboTax®, Quicken®, and Excel. Plus, complimentary subscription-free PDF software is included, allowing for scans to become searchable and editable PDFs.
- Bring Big-Screen Viewing Home With Epson Projectors: From family movie nights to enhanced Zoom meetings, Epson offers an extensive lineup of portable business and home projector solutions. From versatile mini-laser technology to immersive 4K PRO-UHD7 experiences, Epson projectors feature innovative 3LCD technology, robust connectivity options and high color brightness to ensure clear, easy-to-read presentations and state-of-the-art video and movie viewing. And, with the ability to project onto virtually any wall, families can seamlessly transition from working on a small laptop screen or mobile phone to a much larger viewing experience, up to 150 inches, even with the lights on.
