    Panasonic Color MFPs Rated #1 for Reliability
    Office
    Equipment Service Managers Who Responded to the Office Products Analyst
    Annual Multifunctional Reliability Study Gave Panasonic Color MFPs
    Their Highest Rating for Reliability

    SECAUCUS,
    N.J.–Jan.  2006–There is no better barometer of product reliability
    than the repair experts who service office equipment day-in and
    day-out. The Office Products Analyst (OPA) gathered data for its 2005
    study from a group of these experts consisting of 148 service managers
    and encompassing 43,766 color and monochrome A3 multifunction products
    (MFP). The service managers, who were asked to rate color and
    monochrome devices based on specific criteria, responded by rating
    Panasonic color MFPs at the head of the class in the all-important
    reliability category.
    According to Andy Slawetsky, vice president
    for Industry Analysts, Inc., which publishes the Office Products
    Analyst, Panasonic’s top reliability rating for its color MFPs comes as
    no surprise. “Panasonic obviously invested considerable resources in
    the development of their current color devices,” Slawetsky says. “Not
    only are they full of unique features, but they also run very reliably.”
    In
    taking top honors for reliability, Panasonic color MFPs beat out the
    other manufacturers included in the study–Canon, Ricoh, Sharp, Konica
    Minolta, Toshiba and Kyocera Mita. Steve Mullin, president of Panasonic
    Digital Document Company, attributes Panasonic’s recent ascendance in
    the color MFP segment in large part to the restructuring that took
    place at Panasonic at the factory level.
    “When we merged three
    factories into one, our engineers were able take full advantage of the
    various technologies that were previously ‘owned’ by individual
    factories under autonomous management,” Mullin says. “The fruits of
    this merger are very much evident in the C3 color MFP series, which was
    developed under the new alignment. The series features our most
    technologically advanced, best-selling color MFPs to date.
    OPA
    defines an MFP as any “platen-based device that can be connected to a
    personal computer or local area network and which supports at least two
    of the four traditional office functions (copying, scanning, faxing and
    printing).”
    Panasonic offers a broad line of award-winning MFPs and
    copiers with features and functionalities that meet the varied needs of
    workgroups and corporate departments at speeds ranging from 22 ppm to
    81 ppm.
