Your Nationwide copier is an asset. It should be a device that consolidates all the functionalities that your organization needs into one device. Ideally, it should be able to fax, scan, copy, and print. If you are like most owners or managers, you are trying to squeeze the most value out of your assets while improving profit output via efficient managed workflows and low TCO (Total Costs of Ownership). When browsing for your copier, it is critical to evaluate the many, not all, MFPs out there so that you can make the best possible decision for your organizational needs. Consider the tips below for evaluation:
- The requirements for your organization. Determine what is needed from the device, and any other foreseeable features that you may need in the near future.
- The Total Costs of Ownership. The cost, value, and return relationship needs to be scrutinized to because they are closely related. Look at the initial costs, power consumption (if you pay energy bills), costs of cartridges/toner, paper, realistically forecasted maintenance, and copies per month.
- The reviews. No doubt, there are reviews on the device which you may be considering. Examine the nature of other businesses that use the device and the reviews that they have given. It pays to read between the lines for any signs of unreliability.
