Considering your office needs, workflows, and technical advancements when selecting a new printer, scanner, or multifunction device can be a little overwhelming. But it’s also essential to evaluate all the aspects of new office equipment, so you can set your business up for success.
It might take a little more time, but analyzing the below considerations will make sure you get the most for your money when you buy or make an upgrade.
Critical Evaluation Topics
To start, there are four initial topics regarding equipment or multifunction printers specifically that you’ll want to look at for your office:
What is the volume used now and needed to support current and future growth? Where is your business moving as far as communications and output? Make sure that your machine will grow with you from a volume standpoint first.
- Speed No one wants to wait on the machine, so if you need high-volume jobs completed quickly, this is a major consideration.
- Inkjet or laser
If you need low-volume quality projects in color, inkjet machines might be a more effective option for your business. Don’t overlook these details, and be sure to talk it through with your vendor team.
- Buy or Lease
If you want to upgrade equipment quickly, plan on growing more but are not sure about equipment planning, or don’t want to make an upfront purchase, then leasing might be a good option to consider. Your vendor can help you review which option is right for your business.
Solutions and Upgrades
With this info, you can pull together an evaluation of your equipment needs, solutions, and key upgrades. For example, you may have done without a multifunction machine before or not have the volume available or finishing features you need. Now is the time to ensure you have the right equipment for every business function.
