Get More Value from Your Copiers with Professional Finishing Options


Are you getting a satisfactory ROI from your multifunction copiers? If you're not using all of the functions to their full capability, the answer is probably no.

In addition to the wide variety of document management and other digital solutions, multifunction copiers include an assortment of professional document finishing capabilities. Learning how to use them can save your company money and even ramp up your marketing game.

Here's a rundown of the most common finishing features found on multifunction copiers and the benefits they can bring to your organization.

1. Collating

Collating may be a relatively routine function, but allowing your copiers to handle collating can save hours of manual labor.

Collating prints your documents in the same order as the original. If your copier is a Canon imageRUNNER, you can save even more time with its offsetting capabilities to separate sets during longer print runs.

2. Folding

You could buy a dedicated folder, but why do that when a folding unit can be added to your multifunction copiers? Folding combined with positioning software capabilities allow your team to create professional-quality pamphlets in record time.

3. Stapling

It may sound humdrum, but stapling is an all-time favorite finishing option. If you've ever drawn the short straw and been assigned this task, you can easily understand why.

Just specify the staple location (top left or right, top center, binding edge, or center for a saddle-stitched booklet), and let your copiers do the rest.

4. Booklets

Booklets are an expensive outsourcing option, but not when your multifunction system includes this feature. Booklets can give interest to programs, user manuals, presentations, and product promotions.

Multifunction copiers can typically produce booklets from eight to as high as 80 pages. Some copiers also include an insert feature to add even more interest.
