Businesses today are more budget conscious than ever, with many looking for new and innovative ways to reduce spending while increasing efficiency. One area that is often overlooked is the printing realm, where outdated equipment may be holding you back from reaching your true potential. Read on to learn more about the value of upgrading your printers and how to know when the time is right.
Timing is Everything
Watch for these warning signs that it may be time to upgrade your print equipment:
- Increase in the frequency of repairs
- Diminished quality of printed documents
- An unexplained rise in the cost of energy
- Lack of features
- Old age
Benefits of Upgrading Your Printers
Your choice of print equipment can impact a number of aspects throughout your organization, including your bottom line. The benefits of upgrading include:
Cost Savings – As with most old technology, it can be difficult and costly to find replacement parts for your aging printer as system components begin to wear out. The same holds true for consumables such as toner. Today’s printers are designed to last longer, use less toner, and produce more vibrant images.
Energy Savings – Do your part for the environment by upgrading your printer to a new energy efficient, ENERGY STAR rated replacement. Products with this certification are designed to consume less energy than their counterparts when used to perform a variety of everyday tasks, and to automatically revert to a low-power mode when not in use for a specified period of time.
Reduced Downtime – Regardless of how well your printer is maintained, as it nears the end of its usable lifespan it will begin to break down more often and run less efficiently. In addition to the added cost and inconvenience, downtime can lead to a loss of productivity and disruption in workflow.
Advanced Technology – Printer technology has come a long way, and today’s multifunction devices can print, scan, fax, and copy, with built-in features and networking capabilities to assist with document management, storage, retrieval, and back up.
