Epson's WorkForce Pro WF-R8590TC RIPS

“When you do your research, you find that Epson RIPS printers for offices like ours are very hard to beat,” says Jim Dryburgh from H&R Block in Mudgee, central west NSW.

“When you print over 40,000 documents a year, you have to look at your printing costs and we did,” says Dryburgh. “We also looked at getting one central printer as opposed to several scattered throughout the office. When we did the evaluation, we realised we could replace all of our existing printers with the Epson WorkForce Pro WF-R8590TC and it would work out at one cent per page as opposed to seven cents we were currently paying.”

The Epson WorkForce enables the H&R Block team to benefit from the increased productivity of a local distributed print fleet that requires minimal intervention, says Dryburgh.

“The life of the ink, the sheer volume they print and at such a low cost makes the decision a no-brainer. We really did look at all the different manufacturers’ offerings including laser but when you added up the cost of a laser printer plus all of the toner it was simply more expensive than the Epson RIPS solution. We also wanted to get away from the messiness of toner and move towards the simplicity of an inkjet solution so the WorkForce Pro WF-R8590TC was ideal.

“We use our WF-R8590TC a lot, particularly for multi-page, double-sided tax returns, working pages and all sorts of office administration. We just cannot go paperless. So, bearing this in mind, the single standout benefit of the Epson WF-R8590TC RIPS solution is the cost of running it and the amount of prints it provides us with before we have to change ink. That said the printer is incredibly reliable despite our heavy usage and we haven’t had a single problem with it since we purchased it. There are other practical benefits too such as the multi-tray printing function which we use for envelopes, letterheads and invoices.”

The office can now print up to 75,000 pages in black or colour without replacing the ink thanks to the printer’s high-yield ink supply units.
