LOS ALAMITOS, Calif. – Aug. 22, 2023 – Epson America, Inc., a worldwide leader in inkjet printing solutions, has been recognized by CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company. The Epson WorkForce® Enterprise AM Series was selected as a finalist for the 2023 CRN Tech Innovator Awards in the “Multifunction Printers” category.
This annual award program showcases innovative vendors in the IT channel across 37 different technology categories, in key areas ranging from cloud to storage to networking to security. To determine the 2023 winners, a panel of CRN editors reviewed hundreds of vendor entries – including solution provider testimonials – using multiple criteria, including key capabilities, uniqueness, technological ingenuity, and ability to address customer and partner needs.
The WorkForce Enterprise AM Series, powered by PrecisionCore® advanced printing technology, consists of the AM-C6000, AM-C5000 and AM-C4000 A3 line head multifunction printers that offer powerful business productivity and deliver outstanding quality with low waste. The MFPs competitively offer the lowest power consumption in their classes1 – up to 65% lower for the AM-C6000, up to 55% lower for the AM-C5000 and up to 45% lower for the AM-C4000 versus color laser printers – to help businesses meet sustainability goals. Convenient for space-constrained environments, they use the least amount of floor space in each of their classes.2
“Epson is dedicated to delivering innovative printing technologies to exceed market needs,” said Elliot Williams, group product manager, Business Imaging, Epson America, Inc. “With the WorkForce Enterprise AM Series, Epson addresses the mid-range MFP market and expands into new market segments, opening the door to new revenue opportunities for Epson channel partners.”
“The focal point and one of the revenue-producing divisions for Document Solutions Inc. is imaging. I’ve been in the industry for 39 years and offering the Epson WorkForce Enterprise AM Series has opened new business opportunities for us,” said Phil Houser, president and CEO of Document Solutions Inc. “The PrecisionCore Heat-Free® technology is a differentiating factor for us to be unique. It allows us to present a different offering to our clients that bring them tangible benefits. We really, really value working with Epson. They’re here to help us be successful.”
“CRN’s annual Tech Innovator Awards acknowledge technology vendors committed to new and updated products that are creating the biggest opportunities for the solution providers and strategic service providers working on the front lines with customers,” said Blaine Raddon, CEO of The Channel Company. “Congratulations to each one of this year’s CRN Tech Innovator Award winners.
