The new color laser series from Lexmark also features Color Care technology, enabling users to customize their color print jobs and also control the cost of color in general office printing by using coverage estimator, which allows users to calculate the approximate cost of specific print jobs. Network administrators also are able to control which employees can utilize the color capabilities on each device.
"Color can have a tremendous impact for businesses, but it can be expensive for customers to use widely, especially if they are outsourcing documents to the local print shop," Paul Rooke, executive vice president and president of the Printing Solutions and Services Division at the Lexington, Ky., Lexmark International, said in a company statement.
