Egham, 12th December 2019 – OKI Europe’s award-winning OKI C844dnw may be the smallest A3 colour printer on the market but it’s making a big impact in the retail industry, garnering two prestigious awards — a Golden Innovation FMCG & Retail 2019 Award and the RetailShow’s Trade Innovation 2019 Award.
The Golden FMCG & Retail Awards recognise the most innovative solutions and products in the retail sector. Winners are evaluated through an online poll of consumers and a board of jurors. OKI’s C844dnw was selected from among 40 other entries in the Trade Support Solutions Category and the award was presented at the annual ceremony sponsored by Hurt & Detal in Poland.
The RetailShow’s Trade Innovation Award evaluates the best equipment, products and services dedicated to the retail industry. OKI’s C844dnw was recognised for the versatility it offers retailers, enabling them to produce striking visual communications in-store, on-demand, thanks to its superb media handling capabilities and professional quality colour.
Ultra-compact, OKI’s C844dnw is perfect for retailers, helping them improve in-store customer experience and increase customer loyalty through high impact in-store signage and personalised communications. Part of OKI’s award-winning C800 Series, the C844dnw delivers eye-catching, colourful, engaging signage on-demand, empowering retailers of all sizes to produce visual communications quickly and easily in-store. Featuring OKI’s pioneering digital LED technology, the C800 Series handles a wide range of media types, sizes, formats and weights.
OKI’s C844dnw is compact enough for use in small retail spaces. The printer delivers fast print speeds for everyday office use and sharp, High Definition Colour print quality up to 1200x1200 dpi on media as small as A6, right up to 1.3m banners. Versatile and reliable, it can be used to create shelf wobblers, price-tags, labels, bottle collars, self-adhesive floor stickers, eye-catching posters, promotional displays, gondolas, double-sided banners, waterproof media applications and more. Retailers no longer have to rely on external print resources or pre-printed material.
“We are extremely pleased that the OKI C844dnw A3 colour printer has been recognised for the opportunities it offers in the retail sector,” says Javier Lopez, General Manager, Business Development, Industry Verticals. “Retailers are using it to produce professional quality in-store advertising and signage and personalised customer communications as and when needed, without waiting for external partners. The C844dnw enables retailers to react quickly to local demands, trends and competition, giving them a clear advantage in the market, while increasing customer loyalty and basket value.”
These latest awards are not the first time OKI Europe has been recognised for the C844dnw. Launched in April 2019, the C800 Series received an Editor’s Choice Award from Print IT Reseller for its compact size, versatile media handling and energy-efficient fusing technology. The online technology magazine TechRadar also commended the OKI C844dnw for its “innovative design” and its media flexibility citing it as “one of the most flexible printers we’ve come across”, which all contributed to its Five-Star rating.
