Kyocera Mita Wins Readers' Choice Award for Reliability and Productivity

In February 2005, Kyocera Mita was recognized for the Most Reliable Monochrome Printer and Multifunctional Product Line in the world - as determined by equipment buyers and users. We also received a Gold Award for overall device productivity.

Throughout the last year, BERTL conducted an industry-wide survey covering 23 manufacturers' copier, printer and MFP performances across a range of different areas. Responses were received from enterprise buyers and technical professionals in 47 countries, responsible for managing over 175,000 devices in total. BERTL asked about the most important issues affecting these buyers' digital imaging equipment purchase decisions, such as ease of use, productivity, reliability, service and support,image quality and pricing.

Over the course of the last year, BERTL distributed survey forms, asking buyers for feedback about their experiences with devices from 23 different manufacturers. BERTL asked them to relate their opinions about how different manufacturers handle such key issues as ease of use, reliability, productivity, image quality and pricing. The results were tallied to select the winners of BERTL's Readers' Choice Awards.
