Before You Buy a New Multifunction Printer

things to consider

Are you ready to buy your next multifunction printer? Are you confident that you've covered all your bases and done the right research? Hold on just one second--you're likely on the right track, but there are three huge things you need to be consider before you buy a new multifunction printer.

The Perfect Machine

Bringing home a new multifunction printer to your workplace is no small event. Printers, after all, are still a hugely important part of the business world, even as technology makes it easier and more efficient to go paperless--so you want to make sure that you've chosen the perfect machine for your needs before the purchase. Luckily, that doesn't have to be a big problem, even when there are so many different things to consider. All you have to do is make sure that you've answered these three questions, and then you're ready to bring home a shiny new addition to your printer fleet.

#1: What do we print?

This isn't a difficult question, but it's a pretty important one. Just consider what your print habits are, what your current needs look like, and what your goals suggest about the way your future needs might look. This will help you ensure that you're choosing the right device.

#2: How often do we print it?

Whatever you print, you're going to want to know how often you print it. Your needs are going to be different if you do a lot of high-volume, high-speed jobs--whereas if you print only occasionally, you might want to consider a simpler, less pricey machine.

#3: How much can we pay?

Figuring out your print budget is absolutely crucial. Remember to factor in variables like maintenance, energy, and consumables--and always keep in mind that a printer with a cheaper price-tag is probably going to cost more in the long run.

Now that you've asked (and answered!) these three questions, are you ready to choose your new multifunction printer? Contact us today to get started!
