IRVINE, CA - Toshiba America Business Solutions Inc. (TABS) is proud to announce a new partnership with KIP America, the recognized leader in wide-format document imaging systems for the Architectural, Engineering and Construction (AEC) markets, to provide authorized Toshiba dealers with industry-leading wide-format KIP multifunction printing solutions for their customers.

"The AEC market is a critical customer for Toshiba dealers, and invariably these businesses need wide-format document imaging systems for their day-to-day business functions,” said Steve Rhorer, vice president, Marketing, TABS. “We’ve listened to the voice of our dealers and are thrilled to now enable them to purchase KIP’s best-in-class solutions through Toshiba for their customers.”
To assist with dealer sales efforts, KIP product training collateral and support information will be available on Toshiba’s proprietary FYI Portal.

"In addition, Toshiba is widely acknowledged for IT excellence and the ability to integrate systems and software."
Two of the most popular families of KIP multifunction systems include the
four-PPM KIP 3000 Series and eight-PPM KIP 5000 Series, both which feature
integrated touch screen control panels, an intuitive user interface, outstanding
image quality, speed and reliability. The products also feature a wide array of
configuration options, including network printer, scan-to-file, color scanning,
connectivity to wide-format inkjet printers for color output, and the ability
for users to add additional paper rolls to their systems. Scanners, stands and
stacker units also enable the system to be configured to meet customers’
specific needs. The KIP 3000 and KIP 5000 Series are now available through
Toshiba’s nationwide network of dealers for suggested list prices starting at
