The Advanced Series also provides access to Sharp Cloud Portal Office, a revolutionary new cloud storage service enabling businesses to collaborate seamlessly with Sharp document systems and AQUOS BOARD™ Interactive Display Systems, as well as with smart phones and tablets.
The Essentials Series document systems are designed for cost conscious customers and offer features common to competitive models in this class. The Essentials Series provide full multifunction capability (copying, network printing and network scanning) at speeds of 36ppm, 46ppm and 56ppm.
“This new family of monochrome MFP products has been designed to support today’s busy office environments, offering high productivity, powerful multitasking, off-premises cloud support and more,” said Mike Marusic, Senior Vice President, Marketing and Business Solutions Group, Sharp Imaging and Information Company of America. “Offering both an Advanced Series and an Essentials Series allows Sharp Dealers greater flexibility in balancing their customer’s business needs within their budget requirements.”

Both the Sharp Advanced series and Essentials Series offer a range of paper handling and finishing options to accommodate virtually any size office environment.
Sharp’s standard End-of-Lease feature can overwrite all document and user data, which helps protect business and personal information at time of trade in.
The new MX-M365N, MX-M465N and MX-565N Advanced Series and the MX-M364N, MX-M464N and MX-M564N Essentials Series monochrome document systems will be available for purchase Q1 2014 via authorized Sharp dealers and direct sales.
