EcoTank: product of the year

Epson EcoTank wins EOPA 2016 New Product of the Year

The winners of the 15th European Office Products Awards (EOPA) were announced during a presentation dinner in Amsterdam earlier this year – and it was Epson’s EcoTank range that impressed the judges the most in the Powered Products category.

Winner of the New Product of the Year award, the EcoTank’s quality of design, innovation and differentiation helped it to finish ahead of every other product in the category.

Criteria

Only products launched after 1 January 2014 were considered, and they must have been available to purchase by consumers for at least six months prior to the submission of entry to be eligible to win any of these awards. Product of the Year entries were judged on:

  • Evidence of sell through by reseller partners and market share gains
  • Marketing and promotional support provided to the trade
  • Quality of design
  • Innovation and differentiation
  • Meeting unmet needs

Judges comments

“The EcoTank range features revolutionary refillable ink tank technology that offers a combination of convenience and value for homes, home offices and small offices. Essentially it is printing without cartridges, and at a very low cost.”
