Brother’s enterprise colour printer and scanner ranges recognised by Keypoint Intelligence with BLI Pick Awards


Leading printing and scanning solutions provider Brother have been awarded several accolades for their business printer and scanner ranges with Buyers Lab (BLI) 2023 Pick Awards, run annually by Keypoint Intelligence. The awards span their latest professional desktop scanner and Highly Reliable enterprise colour laser ranges.

The awards are given as a result of testing that is independently carried out by Keypoint Intelligence. All testing is conducted in ISO-certified labs looking at reliability, ease of use, productivity, image quality, user maintenance and mobile and cloud connectivity and is designed to replicate real-world and worst-case scenarios.

When reviewing Brother scanners, Keypoint Intelligence praised the triple layer security and network protection features, the “outstanding value” customers receive and the productivity-enhancing capabilities of both the ADS-4700W and the ADS-4900W. As a result, both were each awarded a BLI 2023 Pick Award.

A comprehensive Keypoint Intelligence lab evaluation also found the Brother Professional Colour Laser range (the HL-L9430CDN, HL-L9470CDN, MFC-L9630CDN and MFC-L9670CDN) to be Highly Reliable (ranking as excellent across all devices) resulting in a suite of Highly Recommend ratings across all four devices. The lab results also found the image quality, usability and specifications of each device to be Very Good, offering businesses of all sizes “enterprise-class functionality.”

Christopher Marshall, Executive Director from Brother International Europe said; “These awards prove that our latest business laser and scanner offerings are perfect companions to any growing company, giving flexibility and a more compact enterprise level devices compared to large A3 copiers. Time and time again Brother products are praised for their reliability, durability and ability to fit seamlessly, and safely into all business environments, and these independent results are a testament to the quality we strive to offer our customers.”

Brother’s new professional desktop scanners and Colour laser ranges are now available. For more information on a solution best suited, please contact us.
