Imagistics and Xerox Receive Buyers Laboratory’s Spring 2005 Fax-Centric "Pick of the Year" Awards

Hackensack (NJ) – As part of “Picks Month,” BLI has announced the Spring 2005 “Pick” winners in the fax-centric multifunctional products category.

Because of their excellent overall performance and outstanding value, two fax-centric models have earned “Pick” awards. They are the Xerox FaxCentre F116 for outstanding high-volume unit, and the Imagistics sx2100 for outstanding mid-volume unit.

“Buyers in search of a dependable and productive fax-centric model at a good price can’t go wrong with either one of these laser-based models,” said Paul Depaolo, BLI senior test engineer.  “When subjected to BLI’s rigorous two-month evaluation, both units proved to be outstanding performers, particularly in the areas of ease of use and print output. Security features, which are valuable in light of regulations such as HIPAA and the Gramm-Leach-Bliley, are available on both models.”

Imagistics’ "Best of Class" strategy means we source, test and deploy the best products available to meet demanding customer requirements. This award confirms this strategy works, enabling us to offer our customers award-winning products with leading-edge and simple-to-use features."
