Dell offers businesses a selection of printers and printing services aimed at providing specific services to those working in the legal, educational and medical fields, as well as a single-function printer for larger businesses.

Computer and printing solutions giant Dell announced a series of printer solutions aimed at helping lawyers, teachers and health care staff, as well as a single function printer, the 5350dn. Designed for larger businesses, the 5350dn can print up to 50 single-sided pages per minute. The Dell 5350dn is currently available in the United States and starts at $1,519.99. The company is also offering Next Business Day On-site Service after remote diagnosis and a three-year limited hardware warranty.

With a true print resolution of up to 1200x1200 dpi, it also produces sharp printouts for both graphics and text. In addition, the printer comes with duplexing standard and is expandable with options, including input and output paper tray, staple finisher, mailbox bin, wireless/Gigabit internal card, and additional memory power for the most demanding high capacity printing.

The Dell Classroom Print Station, part of Dell Connected Classroom, is a solution for testing, grading papers and managing classroom documents and bundles a set of education-specific applications for print-on-demand bubble sheet tests, instant grading results (a server with Windows and additional software is required) and reporting.

Key functions of the Dell Legal Print Station include the ability to print forms on demand, scan to court which sets file limits for scanned jobs destined for court delivery, scan to network to send documents to custom network locations, and a touch screen that can be customized with a law firm's logo.

The Dell Healthcare Print Station is a one-touch solution to help increase staff productivity, reduce errors and improve patient care. Key functions include scan to Electronic Medical Records (EMR), physician order routing which allows nursing staff and clinicians to route physician orders from nursing stations to the pharmacy, forms on demand enabling clinical staff to access critical forms, and card copy for scanning each side of a patient's insurance or identification card and printing them on a single sheet of paper.

Dell Proximity Printing Solution, available as a free download starting June 8, is designed to meet this challenge by making it easier for users to connect to a printer closest to them. Through an office map layout, the mobile user clicks on the network printer of choice to route the print job, eliminating the need for knowing printer queue names or installing printer drivers.

"These printer solutions, together with the successful introduction of eight black and white printers earlier this year, reflect Dell's commitment in building a robust printer portfolio based on customer-relevant technologies," said Tim Peters, vice president of Imaging at Dell. "This launch is a prime example of how Dell listens to customers and develops intuitive technology that increases print management efficiencies without breaking IT budgets."
