What to Look For in a Multifunction Printer

shrugging shoulders

By definition, multifunction printers come with a lot of features. They're all about scanning, faxing, copying, and printing--but they can and should do a lot more for your business; all you have to do is know what to look for.

Your Perfect Printer

Finding the perfect multifunction printer for your business needs to be kind of like matchmaking. You're looking for qualities that match up with your needs, goals, and ideals--a machine that can adapt to the way you do things, but also help you explore some new paths and opportunities. With that in mind, here are a few things to look for when trying to choose your perfect multifunction printer.

#1: Technology

Before you get too far into the searching process, you need to decide what kind of printer you're looking for: inkjet or laser? Inkjet printers are cheaper and easier on the environment, while laser printers specialize in high-quality prints over long periods of time.

#2: Functionality

Next, it's time to consider what you need this machine to do. Multifunction printers can accomplish a lot, but only the perfect make and model will be able to provide everything you need without spending too much energy on stuff you won't use.

#3: Quality

Different multifunction printers offer different levels of quality. For example, if you do a lot of photo printing, you'll want a printer that specializes in color and image quality--but if you focus more on scanned documents, you'd prefer a machine that has tools to help achieve scanning perfection.

#4: Connectivity

Finally, it's important to make sure that the multifunction printer of your dreams can communicate properly with your other devices and networks. It has to fit in with the family!
