EPSONís biggest single order in the Kingdom
Dubai, UAE, 24 February 2001

The deal, EPSONís biggest single order in the Kingdom, sees the company supply the Ministry of Education with a total of 725 EPSON products. These include 225 laser printers, (EPSON EPL-5700L), 300 scanners, (Perfection 610) and 300 inkjet printers, (EPSON Stylus Color 480). All the products are to be installed in government schools across the Kingdom.

Jonathan Baker, General Manager, EPSON Middle East said: "A variety of different vendors presented demonstration units to the Ministry of Education, and all these products underwent thorough examination and comparison as to their individual reliability, durability, quality output as well as user friendliness. EPSON products scored highly in all categories and also proved to be competitively priced."

Baker expressed his pride in EPSONís distributor in Saudi Arabia, Saudisoft, in securing EPSONís biggest order to date in the Kingdom. "This is a very important deal for EPSON in many ways. Not only is it financially important, but more so because of the people who are using the products. Todayís youth is tomorrowís consumer and we believe that not only will EPSON products be fulfilling a very serious role in helping in their education, but we also hope that they will find the products fun to use as well."

Each product has special features, which helped influence the Saudi Arabian Education ministryís decision. The EPSON Perfection 610, for example is ultimately designed for first time scanner user.

The entire scanning process is quick and easy starting from installation to high quality results. The scanner can see 68 billion different colours, which results in a fist class reproduction.

The EPSON EPL-5700L is the ideal laser printing solution for schools, as it is for small offices and homes. It offers high-speed black and white laser printing, up to 8 ppm. The EPL-5700L features a specially developed EPSON controller with the choice of easy connection via a standard USB or parallel interface.

The third star in the line up is the EPSON STYLUS Color 480 regarded as the most suitable printer for first time users. Its unique design lets the user communicate, control the printer via the PC. It also provides explanation on how to use & install the printer in a few easy steps.
