3 Common Copier Purchasing Mistakes

A copier may not seem like a big deal in the grand scheme of your company, but it's not something you want to mess up. A multifunction printer or copier is a significant investment, and the wrong one could not only mean wasted money but decreased productivity.

On the flip side, the right multifunction printer for your company could mean that you save money, increase efficiency, and reduce the burden on employees. It's worth your time to read up, research, and ask the right questions before making a purchasing decision.

Common Mistakes You Don't Want to Make

Too many companies end up with the wrong office technology as a result of fast decisions or believing misconceptions. Don't make these mistakes when you're purchasing your next copier or multifunction printer.

  1. Only looking at sticker price: It's easy to assume that the only important cost to consider when you're buying a new copier or multifunction printer is the sticker price. But the initial cost of your new office equipment isn't even the most important expense to consider. Instead, look at the total cost of ownership; a number that combines cost-per-copy and replacement supplies to give you a holistic understanding of what the best deal truly is.
  2. Not reading the fine print: If you're leasing, you should know exactly what the terms of your lease agreement are before signing on the dotted line. At the same time, buyers should consider what's included in any service agreement and what's under warranty.
  3. Ignoring the future: You need something that fits your needs now, but don't make the mistake of being shortsighted. Purchase a copier that's ready to handle your company's needs as you grow, as well.
