Multifunction printers (MFPs) combine printing, scanning and copying all in one document, streamlining print workflows and maximising efficiency. For this reason, MFPs have become increasingly popular within home and work office spaces.
Small to Medium-Sized Businesses
Small to medium-sized businesses can benefit greatly from multifunction printers. Employees experience more streamlined workflows and increased efficiency and productivity. They will save time walking from machine to machine, and they will only have to learn the nuances of one machine instead of multiple machines. This is useful on a daily basis, but also as problems occur, since employees will be more familiar with the device for troubleshooting.
Multifunction printers also offer the convenience of additional features you may not have purchased otherwise. For example, if you don’t normally send or receive faxes, you may not have invested in a separate fax machine. However, an MFP includes fax capabilities that you allow you to send and receive faxes when it may be convenient for the other party.
Multifunction printers are perfect for home offices because they save space. Home offices easily become cluttered with papers, equipment, cables and wires, so having multiple unnecessary machines can quickly become a hassle. Rather than having to find space for a printer, copier, fax machine and scanner, you have all this functionality within one device with a multifunction printer.
Not only do multifunction printers save you space, but they can also save you money. People working in home offices generally do not have all the financial resources available to bigger companies, or they simply don’t want to overspend on equipment. Although the purchase price for an all-in-one printer may exceed the price of a traditional printer, the overall cost generally remains lower than purchasing multiple machines. You also don’t have to worry about maintaining or replacing different pieces of equipment, since they will all be consolidated into one device.
Multifunction printers are optimal for offices of any size. They provide benefits for all types of entrepreneurs. From streamlining workflows to lower operational and energy costs, multifunction devices have a variety of benefits that are conducive to a successful business.
