Buying an MFP? Keep These 3 Things in Mind

Buying an MFP? Keep These 3 Things in Mind

If you're searching for a printer for your Alaska office, you will do well to consider a multifunction printer. With the work ethic of a mule and as many features as a Swiss Army knife, the office MFP is your go-to device.

There are many models of MFP on the market, and all of them have their pros and cons. But there are a few features that shouldn't be optional. Here's what to look for in your next multifunction printer.

1. Fast, Seamless Scanning

Most MFPs have a flatbed scanner, which is an important feature. But if you're scanning a multi-page document or double-sided pages, you'll want an automatic document feeder. Be sure that your device offers various modes of scanning, including double-sided, color, and speed options. One-touch scanning with certain destinations and PDF options is a plus.

2. Reliability

If you're using your printer multiple times a day and it's taking the brunt of your office's workflow, you need reliability. Every printer has a rating that tells you how many prints it should be able to make in a month. Discuss how many prints you think your company needs and make sure the device you select fits this number.

3. Green Printing

Your new printer should be Energy Star rated and eco-friendly with power-saving modes and paper-saving options. A new printer should mean your company is getting greener, not the other way around.

Keep these three tips in mind and you'll end up with a device that meets your company's needs. Contact us to learn more about multifunction printers for your Anchorage business today.
