The printer is a valuable piece of office equipment, but as it ages it can actually be costing you more than you think. As print costs rise, it affects not only your bottom line but also your productivity. If you’re looking to cut costs while also improving efficiency and growing your business, you may be ready to upgrade your printer.
Is it Time to Upgrade?
Upgrading a printer can be a significant investment, so many companies wait until one of their current printers no longer works. However, you should consider these questions if you’re thinking about upgrading:
- How often does your printer break down?
- Is the quality of your prints diminishing?
- Do you wish your printer could do more, or work faster?
If you’re suffering frequent printer outages or your printer is no longer meeting your needs, upgrading can actually help save you money.
Printer breakdowns can be costly. Not only do you have to pay for a technician to repair it, without a printer work can grind to a halt. The more often your printer breaks down, the more money you’re losing.
Upgrading to a new printer will get you a more reliable machine and reduce the need for emergency service and repairs. With a service plan you can have predictable costs and keep your printer up and running. Overall, a new printer can actually cost less than repeatedly repairing your old one.
Printers have come a long way in a short time. Multifunction printers allow you to print, scan, and fax from the same device, reducing the space needed in your office as well as your electric bill. At the same time, software solutions enable your printer to upload to the cloud, utilize mobile printing, and take advantage of automated workflows among other features. You’ll find yourself being able to do more with less, increasing your productivity and efficiency. Many MFPs have built-in security features as well to protect your data.
Investing in a new printer is a big decision and expense. However, with the increase in reliability, security, and enhanced functionality a new printer offers, you can actually save money by upgrading your printer.
