Kyocera wins best A4 MFP Manufacturer prize at Frank Awards 2021

Fairfield, NJ - Kyocera Document Solutions America, Inc., is celebrating its latest industry recognition, having been named Best A4 MFP Manufacturer at The Cannata Report’s annual Frank Awards for the fourth year running.

The Frank Awards are voted for by dealers from all corners of the country, and this year document solutions organizations cast their votes to declare Kyocera’s A4 MFP range as the best in the market.

Kyocera, specialists in IT solutions and software alongside their respected range of printers and multi-functional products, emerged victorious from a highly competitive shortlist. The award once again illustrates the company’s continued customer-centric innovation in the A4 marketplace.

“To be named Best A4 MFP Manufacturer for a fourth consecutive year by professionals who work face to face with customers every day is a great honor. This win demonstrates an unwavering commitment to reaching new levels of excellence. At Kyocera, aiming high is what we do,” says Óscar Sánchez, President & CEO, Kyocera Document Solutions America, Inc.

CJ Cannata, president and CEO of The Cannata Report said: “In our 36th Annual Dealer Survey, 86% of dealers who indicated Kyocera as their primary A3 MFP provider also indicated Kyocera as their primary A4 MFP provider. We’ve never seen such a high percentage of dealers designate the same manufacturer in the primary position for both A3 and A4 devices in the history of the Survey.” Cannata added: “With five Frank Award nods this year, Kyocera also received more nominations than the company has in any year previously. Nods covered a commendable, diverse cross-section of key categories, including: ‘Best Manufacturer,’ ‘Best Marketing Strategy,’ ‘Best Print Management Software Provider,’ and ‘Best ECM/Document Management Provider.’”

The COVID-19 pandemic has profoundly impacted the industry as a whole, and many organizations have since turned to personal A4 devices to equip smaller work hubs or remote workspaces due to their compact size and versatility. With devices like the ECOSYS M5526cdw, M5521cdw, and M6630cidn, to name but a few, Kyocera offers quality and reliable printing to meet the changing needs of today’s businesses, regardless of where their employees are located.

“While the pandemic presented us with many challenges, we knew that Kyocera was very well positioned to help organizations transition quickly to remote and hybrid working without disruptions to their workflows. Our outstanding range of robust and high-quality devices has allowed us to do just that. Given the circumstances and the future of our industry, winning the award for Best A4 Manufacturer has never been more important,” says Sánchez.

Beyond outstanding output quality and unrivaled reliability, Kyocera’s ECOSYS range of products means that customers enjoy optimal printing with drastically reduced energy usage. Our newest energy-efficient devices deliver high-quality print output while reducing user carbon footprint thanks to toners which require less heat in order to stick to the page, lowering the amount of energy required to print.

The demand for more sustainable and compact printing devices looks certain to increase in the coming years with the rise of hybrid working, and everything points to Kyocera continuing to lead from the front.

“I would like to take this opportunity to congratulate the team at The Cannata Report on making the event such a huge success,” concludes Sánchez. “This is one of the most anticipated events in our industry and it was wonderful to be able to finally see everyone in person. We fully expect to be back celebrating again next year.”
