Choosing the Best Printer for Your Workgroup

choosing multifunction printer

If you're in the market for a new office printer or copier this year, you have a lot of decisions to make. With printing still an important business requirement, you want equipment that keeps up with your requirements without wasting your money on features you'll never use. Let's look at some of the industry's current offerings in an effort to help streamline your printer or copier selection process.

Benefits of laser printers

A networked laser printer is a viable option for many small businesses. The initial cost may be somewhat higher than a desktop inkjet printer, but the total cost of ownership will be less. Laser printers deliver sharp black-and-white text, but if photo printing is a business essential, a wireless inkjet printer is a better option for high-quality color prints.

Benefits of multifunction printers

For busy workgroups or specialized requirements, multifunction printers are another good option. These devices allow users to print, copy, scan, fax, and email without having to move around the office to isolated technology islands. Multifunction printers can also give offices with paper-based processes a way to begin implementing digital office procedures. Here are a few more of the advantages found in today's high-functioning multifunction printers.

  • Fast print speeds
  • Sharp black-and-white text and superior color printing
  • Wireless connectivity
  • Duplex automatic printing, scanning, and faxing
  • High monthly duty cycles
  • Toner saver print modes
  • Professional finishing options
  • Secure mobile printing solutions like Apple AirPrint, Canon Mobile Printing, and Google Cloud Print
