The world is currently going through a global pandemic, Covid-19 has created massive disruptions and impacts to our work environments and daily living. As the world is still seeking a vaccine for Covid-19, we are also going through (some massive) changes to how we live and work in a post Covid-19 environment. Work from home (WFH) is likely going to be part of our work routine, a transition to hybrid work environments, a mix of WFH and working in the office. On top of transitioning to a hybrid work environment, the global pandemic has also showed us that we need to shape our sustainable future and world environment as well.
Epson announced the launch of new products to their lineup, for businesses to adapt into their hybrid work environments as they are going through the changes and transitions. They are the Epson WorkForce Enterprise WF-C21000, WF-C20750 and WF-C20600, Epson WorkForce Pro WF-C879R and WF-C878R and Epson EcoTank L15150, L15160 and L14150.

As such, Epson is providing our innovative technologies to help reduce stress at work by enabling better productivity and efficiency for employees. The new line-up offers a range of solutions catering to enterprises as well as medium to large-sized companies that are looking for performance and value.
