MONTVALE, N.J., March 22, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — Sharp Imaging and Information Company of America (SIICA), a division of Sharp Electronics Corporation (SEC) announces a new addition to their multifunction printer (MFP) line up. The MX-M905, the newest high-speed, light production monochrome document system from Sharp, is designed to handle the rigors of high volume environments where productivity and reliability are critical and ease of use is essential.

Providing customers with features such as a customizable touchscreen display with a user-friendly graphical interface, the MX-M905 also offers a range of paper handling and finishing options.

In addition, this competitively priced successor to the MX-M904 model brings many of the award-winning features of the existing line of color document systems from Sharp to our customers. Sharp OSA® technology enables easy integration with network applications and cloud services. The Cloud Connect feature leverages Sharp OSA technology to access popular platforms such as Microsoft OneDrive for Business, Google Drive, and SharePoint Online without added middleware. This document system also supports scanning using embedded Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software enabled via DirectOffice™ technology, which allows for the conversion of scanned documents to popular Microsoft Office file formats, including Word, PowerPoint® and Excel, as well as a variety of Adobe® PDF formats.

Additionally, the strong engine and connectivity features make this model an ideal tool for offices across many verticals such as education and manufacturing.”

The flexibility of configurations and the high reliability it offers make the MX-M905 perfect for environments with multiple users that have varying needs. It offers a triple?air paper?feed unit that allows a wide range of paper to be utilized with precision and reliability and a 2-tray post process inserter for inserting pre-printed color documents. Furthermore, the customizable display features “Easy Copy” and “Easy Scan” modes that offer large size characters and only keys for the most frequently used settings.

For office environments looking to cut costs while retaining the convenience of a workgroup MFP, the MX-M905 offers an impressive range of high-performance finishing options that can transform print jobs into professional-looking documents.
