The most up to date copier machine can help you save money by combining the features of several office machines into one. Printer copiers with scanning, faxing, and other capabilities can help you conserve resources and tale up less office space.
Buying an all in one printer copier eliminates to cost of outsourcing printing needs to a separate printing business or copy store, like FedEx or Kinko’s. A multi function machine has the capabilities to scan documents, print quickly, and print in color. Outsourcing these functions can be costly. Any business owner that has made last minute changes to a printing job knows the risks of outsourcing- changes can’t be made at the last minute, or if they can, it’s usually at a substantial charge. Purchasing or leasing an in-office machine provides a solution to these problems.
Implementing an in-office system is also a popular choice for businesses concerned about the waste that commercial printers create, both paper and chemical supplies. Buying a used or refurbished machine is a great way to stay “green” and get a great deal. A machine can be recycled again after it’s use life is over, or broken down into components that can be re-used.
Owning a machine gives you control over costs. You can buy supplies in bulk, opting for non-chemical or ecologically friendly ink, toner, and developer. These materials can cut down on waste and reduce a negative impact on the environment. Most environmentally friendly supplies cost the same or even less than traditional, chemical based supplies. By having your own machine, you can decide when copies are absolutely necessary or when emailing a document will suffice, saving on supplies and also lengthening the life of your machine.
Purchasing a multi function machine can also save electricity costs. Most machines have a “sleep” or energy saver function, and use far less electricity than would a fax machine, scanner, printer, and copier installed separately in different areas of the office. Having one machine also saves office counter space.
