Is It Time for a Multifunction Printer?


Does your business own a multifunction printer? If you’ve been on the fence about your need for an MFP, read on to discover why these high-functioning devices have become indispensable tools in the world of day-to-day business processes.

Do You Need an MFP?

At its basic definition, a multifunction printer adds copying, scanning, and faxing capabilities to an already impressive printing function. The advantages are substantial, and new technologies are added all the time. Here’s what to expect:

1. Save space.

Tight quarters are a common feature in offices owned or leased by small-to-medium businesses. If recent growth has made yours even tighter, a multifunction printer is a great way to gain more room. MFPs combine the functions of four isolated technology islands into one streamlined device. Instead of making room for a printer, copier, scanner, and fax, you can tuck your multifunction printer in the corner and do everything at one workstation.

2. Save money.

A multifunction printer often includes features to reduce paper and toner consumption as well as energy-saving capabilities you won’t want to miss. For example, automatic duplexing can potentially cut paper usage in half, and default settings to reduce color usage and print in draft mode can deliver significant savings on consumables. Energy star ratings and power-save modes can take a chunk out of your monthly power usage and reduce your impact on the environment.

3. Try electronic document management.

Even if your business hasn’t delved into the possibility of paperless workflows, a multifunction printer provides the option. Built-in scanning features combined with powerful workflow solutions can transport your paper-based processes straight to the world of 21st-century digital business.
