MONTVALE, N.J., Jan. 15, 2020 — Sharp Imaging and Information Company of America (SIICA), a division of Sharp Electronics Corporation (SEC), today announces that Sharp has earned a total of 14 Pick awards for Winter 2020, the most Keypoint Intelligence – Buyers Lab 2020 Pick awards in the Copier MFP category compared to all other competitors. Every color model, from 26 ppm – 60 ppm, as well as every tested monochrome model within the same speed range, earned top awards.

In addition to the 12 highly coveted Pick awards for Color/Monochrome Copier MFPs, Sharp was also honored with 2 additional Pick awards in the Color/Monochrome Printer MFP category. Recently, Sharp also received a 2020 Outstanding Achievement in Innovation Pick Award for its Synappx™ family of smart office software solutions. Additionally, Sharp is the current holder of the 2018 – 2021 Buyers Lab Most Reliable Monochrome Copier MFP Brand, which is presented to one manufacturer every three years.

“These prestigious awards signify Sharp’s leadership in both hardware and software in the digital imaging and smart office markets,” said Shane Coffey, Vice President, Product Management, Sharp Imaging and Information Company of America. “We are proud of the strong start of this next decade with our recent win of the most pick awards for Winter 2020.”

Presented in Winter 2020 by the world’s leading authority on document imaging devices and software applications, Buyers Lab’s highly sought-after Pick award recognition is given to the multifunction printer (MFP) models that are deemed best overall based on its rigorous two-month laboratory evaluations. Among the many factors considered are reliability, image quality, productivity, ease of use, a host of connectivity attributes and overall value.

“We ran over one million impressions on Sharp copier MFPs this season, to exceptional overall results,” said George Mikolay, Associate Director of Copier MFP/Production Analysis, Keypoint Intelligence – Buyers Lab. “As a whole, productivity results were better than other competitors. Strong reliability and above average maximum paper capacities mean less downtime for users to clear misfeeds or refill paper drawers. IT administrators will love the web user interface’s intuitiveness and search and shortcut functionality. And Sharp’s ‘know one, know all’ approach means users of the drivers and control panel will enjoy the same very good overall usability regardless of which machine is close to their particular workspace.”
