The right Multi-Function printer will save you time and money. So what factors should you consider when buying one? At Ricoh, we’ve got 80 years of experience in solving everyday office problems with equipment that lasts. Here are some insights, but for the full buyers guide see below.
Your first consideration should be the user. Your employees shouldn’t have to tear their hair out daily to ensure admin gets done, so check for touchscreen interfaces that are simple to use. Some features to look out for are drag-and-drop, swipe scrolling as well as widgets for updates on time and toner levels.
Compatibility is also key. If your company, like most, uses both Macs and PCs, you’ll need an MFP with plug-and-play capabilities. This means that the MFP allows users to scan, print and fax immediately, regardless of device. If you print in high-quality, check for PostScript emulators that offer identical print integrity.
Support matters in any long term purchase, so when setting up a network of MFPs ensure that on-site installation and after care is in place. Advanced providers will also help with remote monitoring and reporting, to help you break down costs as by print rates, colour and page sizing.
