By expanding the integration capabilities of these MFPs with a host of cloud-based business applications such as Google® Docs, Microsoft® SharePoint®, and Microsoft® Exchange, customers can increase efficiencies with document management workflows and output management solutions.

The CX3535/4545 MFPs deliver exceptional color and media flexibility for tabloid and banner printing up to 47 inches in length which is ideal for presentations, banners and reports.
