Stay equipped for the future with Fujifilm Business Innovation
Just like the technology that surrounds us, brands need to evolve with the times as well, and for them, that surely encompasses far more than making annual New Year’s resolutions. Not only do they have to update their equipment regularly, but it’s also crucial for them to be receptive to change, and the latter is what makes many of the world’s biggest corporate players the giants that they are today.
So, sporting a new name, corporate outlook and a cutting-edge line of business-class printers, Fujifilm Business Innovation Singapore (formerly Fuji Xerox Singapore) is re-emerging into the market to help businesses consolidate, organise and accelerate their operational success.
A rapidly-changing world demands sincere commitments
Fujifilm Business Innovation employs a three-pronged approach towards innovation, consisting of Digital Intelligence, Human Intelligence, and Machine Intelligence. The first homes in on information, ensuring that businesses have the data insights they need to craft viable and versatile IT strategies. The second, as the term suggests is about strategic partnerships and technical know-how through digital transformation assessments and prognostic IT support. Finally, the third aspect is about their smart print devices that provide real-time updates on printer performance to detect problems ahead of time to avoid costly downtime.
Naturally, it’s easy for a company to talk about the above and how they “continuously pursue business innovation”, but when they’ve restructured and consolidated their newest operational centre in such a way that it clearly reflects their ideals, their statement has a lot more weight to it.
Built on the “Omotenashi”, or “wholehearted hospitality” ideal, Fujifilm Business Innovation Singapore is proud to announce their new suite of Apeos devices as well as their recently opened dual-purpose Customer Experience Centre. Located in Mapletree Business City, the facility doubles as both a customer showroom and a corporate workspace to showcase the latest technology in smart multifunction devices and business process solutions to meet the ever-changing needs of a hybrid working environment.
Double down on speed and versatility with the ApeosPro series
Alongside Fujifilm Business Innovation Singapore’s rebranding efforts, the company has also pushed out three series of Apeos printers that address a wide variety of users and workgroup needs.
The first of these is the new ApeosPro production printers, which are tailored for business and professional use. ApeosPro printers deliver high-quality colours and feature a wide range of applications, all of which are supplemented by their flexible media handling and streamlined finishing options.
To excel at their all-purpose deployment, they come equipped with technologies and features such as a low-wear, long-life photoconductor drum to reduce the need for replacements, as well as a high-capacity paper feed of up to 7,360 sheets (when equipped with a high capacity feeder), which they will need should they be required to exercise their maximum print speed of up to 81ppm. This blazing-fast output means they’re also well-suited for use in fast-moving operations like education, healthcare, manufacturing, and even marketing administration offices.
Additionally, ApeosPro production printers also include the world’s first LED printhead capable of 2,400 x 2,400dpi fine resolution output as well as their compatibility with Super EA-Eco toner, which sports the smallest particle size in the industry. When combined, this allows ApeosPro production printers to deliver powerful performance in both the general office workspace and professional colour environments.
Size doesn’t matter with the Apeos Desktop Printer series
Next up in the Apeos printer trio is the Apeos Desktop Printer series, which is designed for more compact office spaces like home businesses and retail shopfronts.
Don’t let their size fool you though, as they’re probably just as competent as some of their bigger brethren by comparison, with the added convenience of a small profile. Apart from being the smallest and lightest printers in their class (up to 40 per cent less volume than other comparable options), the Apeos desktop printer series also includes a sizable pool of security implements. This includes the Secure Print feature, SMBv3/TLS1.3 support, and of course, password protection to help keep all your confidential information safe.
As for how much they can churn out in the office, the Apeos desktop printer series is able to print 31 sheets a minute on A4 size and 41 sheets per minute on A5 size. It’s certainly more than enough to cater for smaller-scale business operations, and the print quality doesn’t suffer because of its small size either. In fact, the Apeos desktop printer series also features the newly developed LED Print Head which helps to account for the light level when printing, as well as Fujifilm Business Innovation’s proprietary Image Registration Control Technology (IreCT), which enhances and optimises image quality.
The Apeos desktop printer series comes available in two variants, either as a single-function printer-only model, the ApeosPrint C325dw or as an all-in-one model featuring an Automatic Document Feeder for copy, scan and fax functions in the form of the Apeos C325z.
Keep your private information under lock and key with Apeos C series
However, speed and productivity aren’t everything. As technology evolves and becomes more entrenched in our everyday lives, the range of security threats we face naturally gets more diverse as well. You never know when confidential information might get leaked due to a security breach, and prevention is certainly better than cure in this scenario. Introducing Fujifilm Business Innovation Singapore’s new Apeos C series, which is not only equipped to handle sophisticated document workflows but also comes with expanded security functions to combat these constantly evolving security threats, a trait it shares with the aforementioned ApeosPro series.
The Apeos C series supports the more recent WPA3 protocol that enhances the security of wireless connectivity and comes equipped with the latest internationally standardized TPM 2.0 with enhanced encryption management. In short, your documents are in the safest hands possible with these printers. If you ever suspect a security issue or face a productivity-related problem on the rise, the Apeos C series also comes with an improved program diagnostic function at startup for added peace of mind. For technical issues, there’s a QR code-enabled quick self-help that shows up on the printer’s display panel and there’s also the option of remote assistance where an operator can remotely access the device and offer resolution guidance.
Despite its focus on security and support, the Apeos C series does not compromise productivity. These printers have improved scanning capabilities such as small-size scanning and higher scan speeds. In fact, they are the first in the industry to achieve small-size scanning for business cards and receipt-sized documents. Blazing fast scan speeds of up to 270ipm for the mid-to-high range models also ensure that you are never hanging around the printer when there’s work that needs doing.
Of course, what good is a fast printer if it’s not easy to use? The Apeos C series features a new intuitive user interface that allows you to print, scan and fax conveniently. Accessibility features such as pinning history buttons and software one-touch buttons let you execute and fax documents without missing a beat, and finally, if your mind ever drifts from the task at hand, the printer’s built-in light notifications and announcement screens will draw you right back from your reverie.

Something for everyone
At the end of the day, whatever your needs are, the Fujifilm Business Innovation’s new line of Apeos devices has something in their arsenal to accommodate them. It achieves this by thoughtfully keeping its users at the center of its design ethos, even as the company's gaze remains focused on dealing with the demands of tomorrow. It's no wonder why our readers and community thought Fujifilm Business Innovation (Fuji Xerox) as the Best Business Printer Brand in our HWM+HardwareZone Tech Awards 2021.
