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!
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!
