OKI Data Americas to Exhibit New Color A3 Multifunction Device at the BTA Mid-America District Event

Mount Laurel, NJ (April 30, 2015)OKI Data Americas announces its participation in the BTA Mid-America District Event taking place May 7-8, 2015 in Minneapolis, MN. Exhibiting in booth four, OKI will demonstrate a groundbreaking new device available through the BTA channel – the ES8473 color multifunction printer (MFP). The ES8473 MFP offers a unique value proposition with its small footprint paired with the capability to produce A3/tabloid size output. It is designed for end-users seeking the flexibility to produce wide format output, and is a cost-effective alternative to larger, more expensive devices. Featuring an optional wireless connectivity, seven inch color, tilting touchscreen display, and standard print, copy, scan and fax functionalities, the ES8473 MFP provides extensive printing capabilities and revenue-producing opportunities.

Beginning in summer 2015, the ES8473 MFP will use the latest iteration of OKI’s smart Extendable Platform (sXP) to support an expanding suite of solutions and applications, including print management, document capture and document management solutions. This new open API will offer additional functionality for developers to build unique solution applications for OKI smart MFPs.

Tradeshow attendees who visit OKI’s booth can enter in a chance to win an Apple Watch™ or an ES5162 monochrome MFP. Drawings will take place at the conclusion of the two day event.

“OKI Data is pleased to be exhibiting at the BTA Mid America District event this year which provides us the best opportunity to demonstrate our ongoing commitment and support of all channel partners,” said Mike Garofola, Senior Marketing Manager of Channel Marketing for OKI Data Americas. “BTA District events have always been a premier channel event for OKI Data, giving us the opportunity to communicate one-on-one with our valued partners and potential prospects.”
