Despite majority of Filipinos staying at home for the duration of 2020, the printing business found itself suddenly booming and surprisingly relevant.  Work from Home setups, SOHO and small-enterprises that sprung up during the pandemic as well as remote schooling created an environment where the need for small, compact and multi-functional printer became a need once again (we can’t print our personal stuff on the office printer anymore, anyway).

Brother Philippines, understanding this, recently launched a slew of compact space-saving print multi-function printers that take into consideration extreme user-friendliness, print speed, and cost effectiveness – all without compromising connectivity, print quality, and features.

“With the increase in remote working and the implementation of social distancing protocols in the office, the benefits of decentralizing your printing fleet can result in significant cost-savings and a great boost to productivity.” says Glenn Hocson, President at Brother Philippines. “Brother’s latest Ink Tank Printers offer powerful and affordable solutions in small, compact packages that can be effortlessly deployed across home and office departments to provide excellent print quality while keeping printing costs low. And of course, they will feature wireless and mobile connectivity1 for seamless productivity and workflows.”

The refreshed models range from size to added functionalities, but they all have one thing in common: the ability to print any document remotely – without the need to be logged in on your local network! Welcome to the future of printing.

While remote printing via local WiFi network isn’t really new, the new Brother DCP-T420W, DCP-T520W, DCP-T720W, DCP-T820W and MFC-T920W all have a new function called Email Print where you can send your document to a designated email and it will print your file for you even if you’re outside your home.

While people are relatively still going about their daily lives at home, Brother is looking-forward to the time when people will be on the roads again or flying across countries. And when this happens, you’d be happy to have a printer with this capability.

No more odd scenarios of calling people at home, asking them to log-in on your laptop or computer and asking them profusely to have some documents printed. The level of autonomy and connectivity this gives are unparalleled.

So which printer is for you? Well that would depend on your workload, usage and budget. Here’s a quick rundown.
