Before you upgrade your copier


Although you might be in dire need of a new copier, when the time comes to make the commitment and buy a new one, these are the 5 things to consider before making that payment.


  1. Will the copier handle your printing capacity?

If you have high volumes of daily prints, you will need a printer that will be able to keep up with your demands, without losing printing speed or the printing quality. Most printers are built for medium workloads, so if you are printing large quantities, make sure you go for a more appropriate printer.


  1. Is quality important?

Printing everyday work documents don’t often require the best quality. After all, what is the point of going for a high-quality print if it is just going to end up in a box? If you are printing for clients or for marketing purposes, you will want to give the print quality a little more consideration.


  1. Can it fax?

Okay, you might be one of the last people still faxing, but if you need to send the occasional fax, then make sure that your printer is up to the job. Luckily, most multifunctional printers are more than capable of sending easy-to-read faxes.


  1. Is the printer secure?

When you need to scan and/or send sensitive company information, you will want to make sure that the machine has certain security, like PIN numbers unique to the person using it.


  1. Will you need to do remote printing?

Since so many people are using devices other than PCs and laptops, if you are printing from a tablet or mobile device, then make sure the printer will allow such devices to connect to it.
