CoolCanucks Review of Brother Canada’s Smart Business Machines ~ All-in-One Multi-Function Center

Thursday, May 30th, 2013

 

 

After recently con­nect­ing with Brother Canada, I was aston­ished to see such an exten­sive lineup of awe­some prod­ucts that they actu­ally sell!

When I thought of Brother Canada, I actu­ally thought of sewing machines right off the hop, and was not obliv­i­ous to the fact that they sell phe­nom­e­nal sewing machines as well as awe­some office machines!

One thing that I did not know was that Brother Canada also car­ries a phe­nom­e­nal lineup of type­writ­ers, fax machines, labellers, scan­ners, and even the best Busi­ness Smart print­ers!!

 

 

 

 

 

Brother Canada and designer Saman­tha Pynn are on a mis­sion to help Cana­di­ans fall in love with their home offices again and cre­ate spaces that are both styl­ish and func­tional.  Home offices are often neglected spaces – filled with clut­ter, mis­matched fur­ni­ture and bad light­ing – but it doesn’t have to be that way!  Using some sim­ple design tech­niques and Brother’s office equip­ment solu­tions, like the small and sleek Busi­ness Smart inkjet all-in-ones, the home office can be trans­formed into a wel­com­ing space that is also a pro­duc­tive place to work.

“Peo­ple who work from home get the lux­ury of being able to design, style and cre­ate their work­space based on their own per­sonal style,” said Saman­tha Pynn, expert inte­rior dec­o­ra­tor, styl­ist, and host on HGTV Canada. “As we all look to max­i­mize every hour of every day, it’s time to rein­vig­o­rate our home offices to cre­ate not only styl­ish spaces but more pro­duc­tive, func­tional and effi­cient ones.”

Cana­di­ans want to spruce up their home offices. Accord­ing to a new Vision Crit­i­cal national sur­vey* com­mis­sioned by Brother Canada, 82 per cent of men and women sur­veyed who work from home say they do invest time, effort and resources into mak­ing their home office look styl­ish and appeal­ing – but 20 per cent are still strug­gling to cre­ate a space that reflects their own style and per­son­al­ity and eight per cent work out of any place at home that is avail­able and con­ve­nient at the time.

Accord­ing to Pynn, there are a few sim­ple tech­niques we can use to freshen up our home offices, which is impor­tant as 40 per cent of peo­ple sur­veyed say they plan on meet­ing with clients and col­leagues at their home office: • Incor­po­rate fur­ni­ture pieces that seam­lessly fit with your exist­ing décor – don’t be lim­ited by tra­di­tional office furniture

• Use brightly coloured area rugs to cre­ate a defined space that’s all your own

• Brighten up your work­space with table lamps and non-fluorescent over-head lighting

• Use dec­o­ra­tive trays to store office essen­tials and equip­ment like sta­plers, tape dis­pensers, pens and paper to cre­ate ele­gant and func­tional groupings

 

 

With one third (34 per cent) of employed Cana­di­ans work­ing from home at least once a month, the sur­vey also dis­cov­ered these work­ers’ unique tech­nol­ogy needs:

  • 82 per cent of respon­dents ranked print­ers as a very impor­tant piece of home office equip­ment – fol­low­ing only lap­tops (86 per cent) and well ahead of items like smart­phones (40 per cent) and tablets (12 per cent)
  • 93 per cent of those polled agree that hav­ing the right office equip­ment and tech­nol­ogy is required to be productive

 

“The sur­vey tells us that peo­ple who work from home have really dif­fer­ent needs in terms of tech­nol­ogy,” adds Pynn.  “One of the great­est ways to cre­ate both styl­ish and pro­duc­tive home offices is with the new Busi­ness Smart inkjet all-in-one print­ers by Brother Canada.  With these all-in-ones you won’t have to give up pre­cious work­space or style as they fea­ture a sleek design that is per­fect for smaller, mod­ern work­spaces and the home office.”

 

The Busi­ness Smart Series is now avail­able at Sta­ples ($199.99 for the MFC-J4510DW and $249.99 for the MFC-J4710DW), Future Shop ($189.99 for the MFC-J4410DW) and Best Buy ($189.99 for the MFC-J4410DW). The MFC-J4610DW model will also be avail­able at other online retailers.

 

 

 

I was sent an awe­some All-in-One Multi-Function Cen­ter from Brother Canada’s Smart Busi­ness Machines Series and it rocks!!

Brother took a huge step for­ward with the MFC-J4510DW all-in-one inkjet printer. Where pre­vi­ous mod­els deliv­ered basic fea­tures and plain hard­ware designs that felt far behind the com­pe­ti­tion, this brand spank­ing new office friendly setup deserves its “future-proof” descrip­tor with Web-connected fea­tures like cloud print­ing com­pat­i­bil­ity by way of Apple Air­Print, a 3.7-inch capac­i­tive touch-screen dis­play, and Wi-Fi con­nec­tiv­ity. While its 150-sheet paper input capac­ity lim­its its usabil­ity for large teams, its fresh and styl­ish design and very gen­er­ous 2 year war­ranty earns this phe­nom­e­nal printer extremely high marks and a solid rec­om­men­da­tion for per­sonal offices and small work­groups all over the world!
