December is the Perfect Time to Upgrade Your Multifunction Printer

By November 28, 2021 No Comments

Have you been seeing long lines at the printer, or experienced downtime because your multifunction printer (MFP) keeps breaking down? The year-end is the perfect time to inventory your current print environment and get in shape for the upcoming year.

Read on and learn why now is the time to consider upgrading!

Use It or Lose It!

Do you have money left in your budget? You can use that extra cash for an MFP upgrade that can help you improve productivity, streamline workflows and get 2022 off to a great start.

Bring Equipment Up to Date

Outdated technology can impact productivity. If you’re relying on outdated technology to handle your day-to-day printing, you’re missing out. Today’s technology offers increased speed and functionality. The latest technology can be what takes your business to the next level.

Secure Your Network

Your multifunction printer faces the same risks that any other networked computer faces if not properly secured. MFPs store data on internal hard drives that need to be secure when connecting to your internal network. New technology has advanced features like user authentication, managed access, and encryption to better secure data and effectively combat cyberattacks. If you want to reduce risks and bolster security you should consider upgrading your MFP!

Evolving Business Needs

As your business evolves, your print environment needs to adapt to your company’s changing needs. As your business grows, you’ll need equipment that can handle an increase in print volumes to maintain smooth operations.

A solution that worked for you five years ago, may no longer work, or worse, hinder your ability to meet your goals for growth.

Your MFP may no longer meet your current business needs if it:

  • Doesn’t offer an intuitive interface that promotes efficiency.
  • Doesn’t have advanced technological capabilities to streamline workflows.
  • Has a limited paper capacity that inhibits productivity.
  • Fails to meet your page output needs to maintain your business whether in terms of volume, speed, or both.

Reduced Print Quality and Functionality

You use your MFP on a daily basis. When it’s down or not working properly, it can grind business to a halt. Reduced functionality is a sign that it’s time to upgrade. If you’re seeing reduced quality output, like faded or blurred images or text, blemishes or spots, it’s time!

Take Advantage of the Tax Benefit

Spending on business equipment and supplies can maximize your tax deductions. As you close out the year, making year-end purchases can be a smart move financially, and set you up to make 2022 shine!
