How to Find the Right Multifunction Printers for Your Office

Today's multifunction printers can make your company's daily workflows a whole lot easier than they are now. If it's been a while since you've had a look, you'll be pleasantly surprised at the latest in multifunction technologies. Here's how to begin choosing the right device for your needs.

DETERMINE YOUR PRINT VOLUMES

How many documents do your employees print or copy in the average month? If you're not sure, your equipment provider can help with a Managed Print Services assessment. The number is important, because print speeds and volumes vary widely, and there's no reason to lease or purchase high-volume multifunction printers when smaller units may be a better fit for your requirements.

MATCH YOUR EQUIPMENT TO YOUR WORKGROUP SIZE

The size of your workgroup will determine how many multifunction printers you need to meet your productivity goals. A good rule of thumb is one device for every eight employees, but high-volume printing requirements could impact your decision.

COLOR OR MONOCHROME?

Do you need on-site access to color printing or do your requirements lean mostly toward monochrome text-only documents? When deciding between the two options, consider how the addition of color on your printed invoices or other customer-facing materials could make a difference. Color printing may seem like an unnecessary expense, but the convenience of an in-house solution could tip the balance in favor of a color-capable MFP.

WIRELESS CONNECTIVITY

Network connectivity is almost a business essential in today's digital economy. Wireless multifunction printers can ease the transition from paper processes to electronic document management, and give traveling or remote workers a secure mobile printing solution.
