5 questions to ask to find the right copier for your business

When it comes to choosing the right copier for your business, one size does not fit all.

A copier is an important part of any workplace. It can be cost-saving, significantly increase productivity, and play an important role in streamlining workflow.

However, when it comes to choosing the right printer for your office (be it a home setup or a commercial one), there is no one-size fits all approach.

Different copiers are made for different places and requirements. It is imperative to choose one that is a perfect fit in your office, can efficiently handle the required output and complete tasks, and provide optimum results in the process.

Some copiers may be specifically designed for an industrial setup and may not be the right fit for a home office or even an office floor for that matter. Similarly, a small copier for a home office may not be able to handle the workload of a printing press.

So, when it comes to choosing a copier for your business, you will have to consider the following five questions.

5 Questions to ask before purchasing a copier for your business.

What will the copier be used for?

Make a list of all the copier tasks your business will require. Will you need the copier to just print, scan, and do everything a regular copier does? Or will you also need it to do jobs such as folding, stapling, binding, and saddle stitching? With the right machine, all the above jobs can be automated. So, to get the right machine for your business, make a list of everything you will require your copier to do.

What type of document will be printed?

Will you be printing emails, forms, and contracts daily, or are you preparing for mass mailings across your large organization, or you are an architect preparing large prints for your client? For the first option, since the requirements are relatively light, you may need only a copier that prints 30 ppm (pages per minute).

However, for the second scenario, you will need a copier with a greater capacity with a printing speed of 45 ppm.

What is the monthly print volume?

Ask yourself what your monthly print volume is. Is your organization printing thousands of pages per day or just a few? You can choose a copier according to your needs then.

Will I need only black and white prints or will I require colour?

Deciding if your organization needs colour prints or not is important so you needn’t spend extra on a colour printer that may not be necessary. For example, marketing agencies may need a copier that gives out colour prints, but another organization needn’t require it.

What is the current cost of printing?

Understand all the expenses that come with printing. This includes the money spent on repairs, the cost of purchasing supplies regularly, and maintenance. By assessing your spending, you can determine the best copier that will provide optimum and cost-effective results.
