Epson launches four ultra-efficient WorkForce Pro business inkjet printers
To meet the high demands of busy workgroups

SYDNEY, 11 October 2018 – Epson Australia has expanded its business printing portfolio with four new WorkForce Pro printers for busy offices, bringing its signature inkjet technology, with low environmental impact, low intervention and high productivity, to workgroups wanting A4 mono and colour print capability. Two A4 mono devices – the multi-function WF-M5799 and single-function WF-M5299 – and two A4 colour devices – the WF-C579R and WF-C529R – deliver fast, reliable and high-yield A4 business printing with an extremely low total cost of ownership (TCO).

General Manager of the Business Division at Epson Australia, Craig Heckenberg, said, “These laser-beating inkjet printers save money, energy and time, and are packed full of business productivity and document management features. Designed specifically to reduce environmental impact, minimise intervention and streamline workflow, they keep cost-saving at the heart of what they do. The low intervention and environmental benefits make these devices ideal for specialist verticals too, such as education, healthcare, public administration and retail, to meet both their print and corporate social responsibility needs.”

The multi-function WF-M5799 and single-function WF-M5299 printers meet the demands of businesses where a robust mono printing solution is required with a compelling TCO for use in workgroups with a high print volume. Their impressive ink yield of up to 40,000 pages – the highest in the segment1 – helps to deliver this low TCO, while offering minimal user intervention. This not only boosts productivity, but its no-heat and no-warm-up printing process also supports extensive media flexibility that includes labels and envelopes.

These models use up to 87% less energy than comparable laser models2, helping to reduce environmental impact and lowering users’ energy bills. All this while still managing a zero second warm-up time and a first page out time of just 4.8 seconds, faster than comparable laser models2.


Offering the same business benefits for colour applications, the multi-function WF-C579R and single-function WF-C529R colour printers also offer potentially significant TCO savings. Their impressive ink yields of up to 50,000 pages for black, and 20,000 pages for each of the colours – amongst the highest in the segment3 – help to deliver this low TCO, while offering minimal user intervention.

Epson is renowned for exceptional colour print quality, and this now extends into these business models. Colour print resolution of up to 4800 x 1200 dpi is best-in-class4, but the specification provides little indication of what this really means for a business. Eye-popping colour empowers sales and marketing material that can give it the winning edge in a competitive marketplace.

As with the mono devices, these models also use up to 87% less energy than comparable laser models4, helping to reduce environmental impact and lowering users’ energy bills.

Built especially for business, these new mono and colour printers offer a suite of software solutions and workflow tools. Support for Google Cloud Print and Apple AirPrint keeps a mobile work force on the move, whilst Epson’s Print Admin and Device Admin software provides IT Managers and Financial Controllers the tools to effectively manage and control their printer fleet. Epson’s Open Platform5 seamlessly supports third party cost recovery and follow-me print solutions such as PaperCut, whilst Epson’s Document Capture Pro6 software enables simple yet intelligent document management of scanned invoices, purchase orders, delivery dockets, contracts and other important business documentation.
