Your MFP Questions, Answered

Q: I don't have much space in my office. Won't an MFP take up too much room?

A: You're in luck! The MFP got its name because it is truly multifunctional. By combining the standard capabilities of four single-function devices, your MFP will save office space. After you bring a multifunction printer online, you can reclaim the space currently occupied by your printer, copier, scanner, and fax machine.

Q: I'm not sure I need a scanner or fax. Won't I be wasting money by acquiring a device with these features?

A: One of the advantages of an MFP is the capabilities you'll gain with a scanner and fax. Scanning will give your company the opportunity to begin replacing hard copy documents and paper-based processes with digital files and workflows—one of the best ways to save both time and money. You can use the built-in fax to send and receive both digital and printed documents—a real communications advantage.

Q: I'm not sure I like the idea of bringing on another device. We're already swamped with software and operating system updates, and keeping supplies on hand for so much equipment is an expensive hassle.

A: We hear you! Your concerns are exactly why a multifunction copier or printer is the perfect solution! Instead of worrying about updates for four separate technologies, you'll be dealing with just one. The same is true for supplies—you won't need to keep a closet full of consumables on hand for an entire fleet of single-function devices.
