Multifunction Printers for Small Businesses


Small businesses don't necessarily have small challenges. It would help if you had office equipment that's up to the task without breaking the bank--and that's where multifunction printers come in. Let's take a closer look!

Why Multifunction?

Sure, you have a lot of options when it comes to office equipment for small businesses--but that doesn't mean all those choices are created equal. Some of them are designed to adapt to your unique needs, challenges, and workflows without adding unnecessary complexity to your environment.

Take, for example, multifunction printers (MFPs). They combine print, fax, scan, and copy capabilities, but they can also do a lot more for your small business. For example:

  • Budget benefits are a guarantee, because MPFs do the job of several machines for the price of one. Plus, you'll only have to pay for maintenance and consumables for one great device.

  • Efficiency improvements are around every corner with an MFP. You can finish an entire task without having to leave the device--and with connectivity tools that help you utilize email and cloud apps, your efficiency will be through the roof.

  • Powerful workflows don't have to be out of reach. With an MFP at your disposal, it's easier than ever to simplify, strengthen, and streamline your workflows, cutting out unnecessary steps and making sure every team has the print tools they need to get the job done.

Choosing a Printer

So, now you know all about MFPs--how do you choose one for your small business? Here are some quick tips!

  • #1: Do the math.

    Remember, an MFP should help your budget, not hurt it. Do the math to make sure you know the total cost of ownership (purchase, maintenance, repairs, consumables, etc.).

  • #2: Decide what you need.

    Multifunction printers offer a wide range of function combinations, which means you're free to decide what you do--and don't--need. (For example, is color printing a necessity? Do you need fax? How important is connectivity?)

  • #3: Consider the future.

    MFPs are long-term team-players. Before you make a purchase, be sure you've selected a printer that can keep up with your needs both now and in the future--that way, you get to enjoy the same benefits even as your company grows and changes.
