Choosing the Best Copier for Your Office

When making a large business investment, you want to make sure that the investment is worth every penny. Purchasing a business copier is no different, you want to make sure that you are getting the right copier to suit your business and that you will get the most out of it. Because after all – copiers aren’t cheap and can last from seven to 10 years. Here are some tips for choosing the best copier for your business.

What Does Your Business Need?

The first step to choosing a copier for your business is making an honest assessment of your business needs. Knowing your business output is crucial to figuring out what type of copier you’ll need as well as how many copiers you’ll need. For medium to large companies, we recommend a copier that is capable of at 100,000 copies a month at 35 – 45 pages per minute. If your business is on the smaller side, or if the majority of your documents are digital, then a smaller copier with less capacity will suit your business just fine.

How Much Are You Willing to Spend?

When purchasing a copier printer scanner for your business, it’s important to look at it as an investment instead of a business cost. You should always look at the output of a copier to make sure it’s enough for your business. If you overclock a copier that is not capable of high output , you risk failure and constant maintenance, which can actually end up costing more in the long run. When working with a limited budget, look into refurbished and reconditioned copiers that operate as good as new. 

Do You Need Special Features?

Modern copiers come with special features that can be beneficial to the productivity of your business. For example, if your business makes pamphlets or brochures, then investing in a copier with a finishers that add finishes like staples, folds and pouches can save you money in terms of man-hours. Similarly, if your business only requires the occasional use of a copier, then an energy saver mode will be beneficial.
