LONG BEACH, Calif. – March 30, 2011 – Social media consultant Mirna Bard makes her business out of inspiring organizations and entrepreneurs around the globe to leverage the Internet to attract and cultivate business opportunities. To accomplish this, Bard relies on the Epson WorkForce® 635 all-in-one printer to run her home office efficiently, rather than spend extra time on routine office tasks like printing, scanning, copying and faxing. With the time saved using the WorkForce all-in-one, Bard can focus on the bigger picture of her clients’ needs.
The more she uses the Epson all-in-one, the less energy Bard needs to invest in everyday office tasks. “It’s as if the WorkForce all-in-one is calibrated at the same high gear as my business,” she said. “It saves me an incredible amount of time when I’m rushing to meet deadlines, especially when I’m presenting back-to-back live training sessions or webinars for clients.”
The all-in-one ramps up quickly, printing laser-quality color presentations and Internet research at incredibly fast speeds. The DURABrite® Ultra ink produces smudge-, fade-, and water-resistance documents that are highlighter friendly for Bard’s clients. She can also print 10 pages in as fast as 40 seconds and set the all-in-one to automatically print two-sided pages without waiting for the ink to dry. “The WorkForce all-in-one opened my eyes to the cost-saving benefits of two-sided printing,” she said. “I don’t need quite as many big boxes of paper taking up valuable home office space.”
A major part of Bard’s business is advising clients to use computers and the Internet more effectively and she is constantly on the lookout to do the same. Since incorporating the WorkForce all-in-one into her business, Bard scans most of her documents rather than filing paper. “Although I still rely on printed paper for presentation copies and research, I no longer need a filing cabinet to take up space in my home office.”
The only learning curve Bard encountered when using the WorkForce all-in-one was re-training herself not to constantly check the printer for problems. “My previous all-in-one was continually letting me down and I developed a reflex action to expect paper jams right in the middle of a deadline.” The high-volume, front-loading 250-sheet paper tray frees Bard from these worries and from frequent interruptions reloading paper.
Finally, the two-sided 30-page automatic document feeder allows her to copy, scan or fax two-sided color documents with no problems. That coupled with the built-in WiFi® and wired networking, memory card slots, and a large 2.5” tilt LCD screen makes this device especially easy to use and allow Bard the time to focus on what is most important – educating and counseling her clients.
