Buying a Copier. 5 Things to Consider.

Buying a Copier?

ALL COPIERS ARE THE SAME, RIGHT?  YOU MIGHT AS WELL JUST PICK ONE AND HAVE IT INSTALLED.

Believe it or not, that’s the attitude that some businesses have when it comes to their office equipment.  They may make their selection based on all the wrong reasons.  There are several factors to consider before you sign your name on the dotted line.

Buying a Copier. 5 Things to Consider.

HERE ARE THE TOP 5 THINGS TO CONSIDER BEFORE SELECTING YOUR NEXT MFP.

REPUTATION – What is the reputation of the company that will be installing and servicing your copier?  Will they be able to provide you with positive testimonials from current customers?  If there is a service issue, how long does it take them to dispatch a repair technician?  

SPEED – Speed of the device is another important factor to consider.  If your business copies and prints a large volume, you’ll need to select a high-speed  copier that can keep up with your demand. A poor match will either result in you overpaying or experiencing a higher number of service calls.

COLOUR or B/W – What projects will be printed?  If you plan on using your new copier for presentations and marketing material, a colour device will certainly be the better choice.  On the other hand, if your letterhead and forms are pre-printed and colour is not an issue, select a less-costly B/W copier.  Even if your monthly colour volume is low, the difference in cost between a colour or B/W copier may still be less expensive than using a pay-for-print service from one of the office stores for your colour prints.

ACCESSORIES – Would you like for the copier to staple your documents?  A large-capacity paper drawer would be a smart choice if you would like to minimise the amount of times that you have to fill the paper drawers.  Banner printing may also be on your wish list.

PAYMENT TERMS – Purchase or Lease? What method makes the most sense for your business? A Rental is the most common,especially if you do not want to own your copier. Selecting a Rental Agreement is perfect if you intend to keep up with technology and trade-up for a newer device down the road.  A Rental Agreement also has great tax advantages.
