Multifunction printers (MFP’s) provide an all-in-one solution for any office space. They are ideal for small businesses that need an all-in-one solution to print, copy, scan, and fax documents. While most multifunction printers in the past were originally limited to home and small office use, larger models have been released, allowing for larger companies to enjoy the benefits of multifunction printers. MFP’s could help to lower the amount your company spends on supply cartridges each year.
Multifunction Printers Save Space
You could save a significant amount of space if you choose to go with a multifunction printer. Not needing a separate space for a large printer as well as a scanner will allow room for perhaps another workstation, or maybe even that ping pong table you always wanted in your office. If you only use your fax machine once every blue moon, it may be time to find a printer that has fax features enabled.
Time is Money
Having a multifunction printer will allow tasks to be completed quicker. Multifunction printers, like ones with Sharp’s Scan 2 Technology, allow for you to save a copied or scanned file right to your computer. MFP’s are easy to maintain and the maintenance on them is usually lower than other printers. With maintenance contract agreement options, you may not have to spend as much money on products like ink and toner, which could save you hundreds down the road.
They Help Save The Environment
MFP’s can help your office reduce your electricity bill and save paper. They usually only have one plug and are small enough to offer substantial energy savings, compared to having multiple devices. Search for a MFP that is ENERGY STAR certified to help reduce your office’s carbon footprint as well as energy bills.
Each Year has New Features
Many newer MFP’s can also be connected through manufacturer-produced apps like Sharpdesk Mobile or HP ePrint This could allow for you to preview and print documents from iOS and Android smartphones and tablets. Larger MFP’s also feature customizable action menus along with a keyboard. This makes searching for a specific feature a lot easier.
