Stay productive and in control

There’s little wait time with a first output ready in under 3 seconds. And you can maximise your time and resources even more by scheduling larger jobs when the office is quiet to avoid waiting and by bypassing those frustrating print jobs holding up the queue with Auto Job Promotion. Order your print runs straight from your smartphone or tablet without the need to install complicated drivers or additional software. The IM 9000 also supports cost savings. Sleep Mode and a built-in motion sensor reduce energy consumption and you can save paper by forwarding incoming faxes directly to your email.


Digital storage, transfer and collaboration made easy

Transform documents into easy-to-share digital files at up to 240 images per minute (ipm) with the single pass document feeder (SPDF). Scan tickets, cheques and more with the optional Small Paper Feeding Unit, and share files instantly with multiple Scan-to options or send them directly to cloud services such as Dropbox™ and SharePoint™. You can even cut down your workload by reducing dual original feeds with the optional Page Keeper Unit.
