TORONTO, ON Xerox Canada has launched the Xerox WorkCentre 4118 desktop multifunction device designed to deliver advanced copying, printing, scanning and faxing typically found in high-end multifunction systems to small offices.

Starting at $999, the WorkCentre 4118 copies and prints at 18 pages per minute and is available in two configurations. The WorkCentre 4118P copies and prints, and the WorkCentre 4118X adds faxing and colour scanning.

Both configurations offer advanced copying features, such as ID Card Copy, that enable people to copy both sides of a document -- such as an ID card, license or an insurance card -- onto one side of the page. ID Card Copy is essential for medical and healthcare organizations that want to cut the number of steps involved in creating patient files while reducing paper waste.

“Small businesses want ‘high-end’ performance in one easy-to-use, compact device. We are meeting those needs with an expanding array of digital copiers, printers and multifunction machines,” said Tim Williams, president, Xerox Office Group. “The WorkCentre 4118 does it all - providing customers the extra features they want at an affordable price.”

The WorkCentre 4118 comes with colour scanning up to 4800 dpi and Nuance's PaperPort SE v10.0, document and image management software that allows people to manage scanned files. The WorkCentre 4118 also comes with Nuance’s OmniPage™ SE v4.0 software, which converts paper into editable electronic documents providing small businesses with a tool to quickly turn stacks of paper – letters, contracts, tables and manuals – into word processing and spreadsheet documents.

The WorkCentre 4118 is easy to use; a large front panel display makes it easier to select printing, copying, scanning and faxing options. High-capacity toner cartridges with a yield of 8,000 pages, coupled with an industry-leading paper tray capacity of 550 sheets, means less time maintaining the printer. The WorkCentre 4118 also provides flexibility with options such as a second 550-sheet paper tray and an internal network card, which allows companies to add features as they grow.

The WorkCentre 4118 is ENERGY STAR compliant and part of Xerox’s Green World Alliance supplies recycling program. It comes with the Xerox Total Satisfaction Guarantee and is available immediately worldwide through Xerox resellers, distributors, authorized sales agents, dealers, direct sales representatives and concessionaires. It is also available online at www.xerox.com/direct and at 800-ASK-XEROX.
