Three Things You Should Know About Multifunction Printers

Is it time to buy a new multifunction printer? Maybe your current MFP is malfunctioning or getting too old. Or maybe your company is in a period of growth, and it's time to expand your printer fleet to include one of these multifaceted office workhorses. Whatever the case, you've probably already discovered that there is a myriad of options available to choose from, and you're probably wondering how you'll find the right fit for your business.

Finding the Right MFP

There are three things that you should know when you're choosing a new multifunction printer. At the end of the day, it's most important to find an MFP that fits your company's unique needs. A one-size-fits-all approach doesn't work well with office equipment, and you'll want to work with a vendor whose opinion you can trust.

  1. Know what you need: The first thing you should be aware of when you're looking for a new multifunction printer is what your company needs. How much will you use this printer? Will you need to print high-quality color products or mostly black-and-white documents? Will you need various paper sizes? The answer to these and many other questions will get you started on your search.
  2. Know your processes: Your business processes and workflows will influence what kind of features you'll need in your next multifunction printer. Do you need an MFP that can be directly integrated with your document management system? Look for an MFP that can work with your current workflows and even make processes better.
  3. Know your environmental impact: Your MFP shouldn't add to your environmental footprint in a significant way, so be sure to choose a model that offers energy save modes and paper-saving options.
