Are you in the process of buying the perfect multifunction printer for your business? If so, then drop what you're doing and take a moment to make sure you've chosen the right device. You don't want to make a pricey mistake--but luckily, with these questions, it's easier than ever to be sure you're bringing a fast, efficient, powerful, and perfect printer into your company.

What to Ask

Although it might seem strange at first glance, the truth is that multifunction printers are never one-size-fits-all. Different machines offer different combinations of features, which means that not every device is going to appeal to every company--and that, if you make the wrong choice, you could end up with a functional but frustrating piece of technology. The good news is that it's not too late to be sure you're making the right choice. Just slow down and ask yourself these simple questions!

  • #1: What are our needs?

Some companies are always printing in color, while others put more value on speedy high-volume print jobs, and others still just want the most basic features like scanning. Make sure you reflect on your needs, both now and in the future, so you get a multifunction printer that can keep up.

  • #2: Is this machine secure?

Once you've narrowed down your choices, it's time to eliminate any printer that can't fit into your security plan. Do your research and find a multifunction printer that matches your confidentiality needs.

  • #3: What is the total cost of ownership?

Multifunction printers are more expensive than what their price-tags say. You'll be paying for consumables, maintenance, repairs, and more--so make sure you've done all the math before you choose what appears to be the "cheapest" printer. (Remember, a higher-quality device will be more reliable and cost less over time!)
