Is your printer vying for that fishing spot on the river, just clocking in a few more months until it's ready to retire? Alright, maybe the metaphor is a little stretched, but since printers don't sprout gray hair and start forgetting your name to clue you in, it can be hard to tell when it's time to let them retire.
Why should you pay attention? Well, there's such a thing as a useful lifespan for every device and machine. You can use a high-quality printer for quite a long time, but after a while, it may be far past its useful lifespan—meaning that you're paying too much and waiting too long to use it now. Here's how to tell when it's time to throw your printer a retirement party and let it move to Florida.
Your Printer is Ready to Retire If…
- It's not as spry as it once was: If your printer is slow, causing lines to form while everyone's eyes glaze over, then it's probably time to replace it. An efficient printer will be able to keep up with the workload of your office, and today's printers can handle high volumes without compromising productivity.
- It hates new technology: Older printers won't be compatible with new technologies, making it harder for you to do your job. In this business, outdated machines can open your company up to cyber attack and other security issues.
- It's always at the doctor's office: If your printer is in constant need of repair, it's time to replace it. Frequent service issues can slow down your productivity and affect staff morale, so it's not worth waiting to get a new printer.
