Lexmark is relatively new to the technology industry and was a spinoff company developed from IBM in 1991 that targeted the low-end color inkjet market. By increasing manufacturing times, reducing production costs, and expanding its manufacturing plants around the world, Lexmark quickly grew to become the number four retail market in the technology industry by the end of 1994. It was in 1995 that Lexmark introduced one of its most successful and innovative products ever, the MarkVision printer management system. At the time this was the most comprehensive and thorough printer management systems that had been developed and it allowed Local Area Network (LAN) users in large companies to significantly increase their efficiency. MarkVision allowed users to view all available printers on the network without ever leaving their desks. It also allowed network administrators to view and change printers settings from a remote operating panel within the same office or across the country. Top corporations used the MarkVision system and this quickly gave Lexmark the springboard it needed to provide organizations with its printers and printer ink cartridges on a global scale.
Lexmark products are now one of the most recognizable product names around the world. They produce a wide range of affordable printers, multifunction machines, Lexmark toner cartridges
and Lexmark ink cartridges. Their line of thermal inkjet color printers are small and ready to print 6-color photo quality prints up to 4800 x 1200 dpi. These printers use a two tank system of one black and one color Lexmark ink cartridge each that are easy and economical to replace.
Lexmark multifunction inkjet printers feature wireless connectivity, one-touch printing, scanning, copying, and faxing, as well as a web-connected touch screen that will allow you to print directly from the web to your printer without using a computer. Their high-end professional models also boast to use the lowest black Lexmark inkjet ink cartridges in the world which will cost you only one cent per page on average. Lexmark inkjet cartridges use the Vizix print technology that delivers vibrant, crisp prints every time and brilliant photos with precise and consistent ink droplet placement.
While Lexmark as a company has only been around for a couple of decades, they have greatly impacted the printer world by offering high quality products at an affordable rate. Due to their commitment to become an efficient provider of printers and inkjet cartridges, they managed to also produce the most efficient printer management system of its kind proving that even the new kid on the block could make a huge impact in the technology world.
