OKI Data Americas announces introduction of the new ES8473 color multifunction device (MFP) to the BTA channel. Featuring standard print, copy, scan and fax functionality, and available in three different configurations – one desktop (ES8473 MFP) and two floor-standing models (ES8473c MFP/ES8473x MFP), this compact and robust device produces professional documents quickly and affordably, and is ideal for small to mid-sized workgroups.

This new platform will offer additional functionality for developers to build unique solution applications for the OKI smart MFPs.
