Brother Web Connect Wins BLi Outstanding Achievement in Innovation Award

 

Brother Web Connect Brings the cloud and the MFP Together

Sydney, Australia – 20th March 2014 -

Buyers Laboratory LLC (BLI), the world’s leading independent evaluator of document imaging hardware and software, announced its Winter 2014 “Pick” and “Outstanding Achievement” award recipients in the document imaging solutions category. Bestowed twice a year by the editors of BLI, these awards honour the most impressive solutions evaluated by BLI during the previous six months.

Brother International, a leader in home and business IT space with a strong commitment to the ‘Customer-First’ approach, is delighted to have won an Outstanding Achievement in Innovation award for Web Connect.

With Web Connect, end users can quickly scan paper documents at the MFP and deliver them to services including SkyDrive, Box, Google Drive, Evernote, Dropbox, Facebook, Picasa and Flickr. “This is a wider array of services than is supported by any scan-to-cloud MFP feature BLI has seen to date,” noted Bsales. “Users can also print files from those services, download files from the cloud to storage media on the MFP, or upload files from such media onto the services.”

“More and more of our customers are taking advantage of the cloud to store and share critical business information,” said Kelly Wilson, Senior Marketing Manager at Brother International (Aust). “Brother is committed to providing convenient access to leading cloud services from our all-in-ones and scanners, to support the rapidly evolving need for end-user mobility,” she added. “Our exclusive Web Connect interface provides intuitive, direct access to popular cloud storage sites, right from a Brother machine—without the use of a computer. We thank BLI for recognizing our dedication to customer-focused innovation.”
