3 Things To Consider Before Choosing a Copier

Premium Digital has been a leader in the printing and copying industries for more than two decades. During our time in business we’ve always focused on helping our clients select the best copier for their business.

Here are a few things you might want to consider before choosing any copier.

  1. Know the Impact On Your Office. In most office settings, copiers can range from having a few people waiting to copy, print or scan something, or be the constant source of frustration with people waiting angrily or anxiously for the “paper jam” to get fixed for the 3rd, 4th or 8th time that day. The worst part about leasing or purchasing new technology, especially office technology, is that many employers will go in blind on the subject and not have any background information at the products they’re looking at. Do your own research or better still, talk to a professional who can help you determine the best copier for your business.
  2. Consider What Fits For Your Business. Let’s say that you are a business that uses a copier only once in a while. Should you go for a copier that has all the bells and whistles? No. You need a standalone copier for your business, and you can usually lease or buy them for a low price. Leasing is always a great option for business owners looking to save on costs and many lease options also include servicing and repairs. The bigger the business, the more functionality you’re likely to need. Most copiers come with a scanner and many networkable features. This means that you can connect the copiers to your office network and use the scanning feature to have the image saved directly to your office computer.
  3. Toner Adds Up Quickly. The toners on small, little, all-in-one copiers are usually expensive. These little guys can get very, very pricey. Many clients think that they need a full color copier and are often misinformed as to the expense of full color toner. You could easily be spending three-to-four times as much on toners than the machine itself, depending on how much your company prints. In this case you would be better off sticking with basic monochrome device. Color documents are always more enticing to look at, but is it worth the extra money per month? Is that extra cost in the company’s budget? I’m not sure but, it is our job to uncover that question and ask the client.

When you deal with these types of upgrade decisions, always make sure you research the product before you jump into the deep end with them. Business is all about spending as little as possible to make as much as possible and leasing certainly can help with that!
