  •   Control your multifunction printer with ease, thanks to Workstyle Innovation Technology that simplifies even your most complex tasks. You can tap, drag, swipe and scroll with ease on the 10.1" Smart Operation Panel to create unique workflows. It also provides easy integration with smart devices through mobile print solutions, plus near field communications (NFC) capabilities. NFC lets users connect to an office MFP by simply touching a smart device (loaded with Smart Device Connector App) to the unit — without joining the office network or having to authenticate.
  •   Print more complex color PDF files with the PostScript Unit and access additional features like PDF direct print, printing from a Mac OS and mail-to-print.
  •   Transform your MFP into an information portal. The standard Hard Disk Drive enables features like locked / hold / stored print, printing from (and scanning to) portable media, data overwrite and encryption features, and more.
  •   Remotely manage your printer fleet with @Remote. This internet-based tool lets you monitor your device usage, automate meter reads and toner alerts, and quickly alert your service provider of problems to shorten downtime and improve service.
  •   Reduce the downtime and service calls on your units. The ESP XG-PCS-15D Power Filter helps condition your inbound power source, leading to fewer work disruptions and better performance.
Choose the best multifunction printer configuration for your needs. Designed with the most popular combination of features and benefits, our Signature Series lets you choose the best multifunction printer configuration for your business needs. Choose from a base model that you can fully configure yourself, or save time and streamline installation with the MP C407 Essential, Plus or Performance models.
