What’s the Secret to Designing Next-Generation Products?

The multifunction printer team discusses
“evolutionary” design.

An office multifunction printer can be used by everyone from new recruits to veterans with decades of service. Therefore, we greatly value the uniqueness of such products for companies. It’s all about the “speed of evolution” in design.

The key point is that it’s not always best to update everything immediately. If the way you use the multifunction printer and the UI on the screen change significantly with each new product, it will confuse users who have been using them for a long time.

That’s why designers and developers take the best of the current and upgrade the product design with attention to detail to suit the times.

We work over a long period of about two to three years on new designs with a broad perspective while keeping an eye on the evolution of next-generation MFPs.
