For business owners, there are many factors to consider when it comes to making investments in business operations and office equipment, including budget and space. Small businesses need solutions that pack a big punch—and multifunction printers are the perfect answer!
Here are all the benefits of multifunction printers for small businesses, and how to choose one that’s right for your needs.
Small enterprises generally do not have much space to spare. A multifunction printer is an all-in-one that can copy, print, fax and scan. This means, instead of having to squeeze in a printer, a copier, a scanner and maybe a fax machine around your office, you need only to find space for one machine.
Save Cost In The Long Run
Although a multifunction printer may be more expensive upfront, it is really more cost effective than purchasing individual printer, copier and scanner devices. The long-term running costs are also lower – you only need to buy supplies such as ink or toner and paper for one instead of multiple devices.
Having four separate devices can really run your electricity bill up! Even standby power costs can add up and contribute up to 10 percent of your energy bills. By having just one multifunction printer, you can dramatically cut down on the amount of energy used in your office. In addition to lower bills and cost savings, you’ll also reduce your company’s energy footprint.
Efficient and Convenient
A multifunction printer makes work processes more productive and efficient. A multifunction printer also allows you to operate functions together in a way that you would not have been able to with stand-alone devices. For example, you can easily go from scan to print, copy and fax with a push of a button.
On a practical front, it is easier to service or fix one device compared to maintaining several separate machines. For example, instead of having to call up different services and set up several visits to fix your scanner and printer and copier, you only need to get one licensed technician once to service your multifunction printer.
