Sydney, Australia - February 20, 2017 - Kyocera Document Solutions Inc. (President: Takashi Kuki; herein "Kyocera"), one of the world's leading manufacturers of document imaging solutions and document management systems, is pleased to announce that its A4 multifunctional products (MFPs) and printers -- the ECOSYS M5526cdw, P5026cdw, M2640idw and P2040dw -- have won the "iF DESIGN AWARD 2017" sponsored by the iF International Forum Design GmbH (Germany).
These products pursued a compact design with low-noise operation allowing them to be set up in close proximity to the users at businesses such as retailers or distributors. Kyocera received the "iF DESIGN AWARD 2017" due to the evaluation of its long-life design as a feature of product development, waste and printing cost reduction, as well as simple design and operability considering the user. The same four models have also won the "Good Design Award 2016" hosted by the Japan Institute for Design Promotion (JDP), a public interest incorporated foundation.
Encouraged by the award, Kyocera will continue to develop reliable devices that promise high-quality not only in performance but also in design and usability, thus contributing to building office environments where users can efficiently manage their document workflows.
Kyocera's award-winning products are expected to be on show at the "iF DESIGN EXHIBITION" in Hamburg, Germany (Exhibition Part 1: March 11 - June 2017).
