Copier and Printer Solutions Bedford OhioCost is an important factor for any business or school evaluating their print strategy. It is often tempting to go with the cheapest option initially, but, to find the total cost of ownership, possible savings need to be weighed up against user convenience, speed of printing, versatility and reliability.Cost effectiveness Cost effectiveness is better evaluated in two sections: initial cost to purchase the equipment and ongoing running cost. Undoubtedly a desktop printer will most likely be cheaper to purchase initially than a large photocopier. However, factors such as life-span, how many devices are needed, consumables cost and cost per print need evaluation to find a total running cost. Photocopiers can also be leased, which can spread their cost over time. It is important to remember that, just as over using a number of printers can be expensive, so too can be under using a photocopier.Convenience Ideally, printers and photocopiers need to be conveniently positioned and easily accessible to all users. Clearly a desktop printer within arm's reach is more convenient than having to collect prints from a photocopier positioned in a central position. However, being forced to collect prints from a less conveniently positioned photocopier could encourage users to think more carefully before printing, reducing wasteful prints. Investigating which devices handle the most printing can help develop an overall print strategy. A print audit will deliver a detailed analysis of the number of prints sent to each device. These figures not only show which devices are the most cost effective but also help to pin point the best position for the photocopier to stand according to the office areas that carry out the most printing.Speed Information about how many pages a printer or photocopier can print per minute is usually readily available and easily comparable. A multifunctional photocopier that has replaced several desktop printers will have to have a relatively high print speed to compensate for the increased number of users printing to a single device.Versatility The importance of versatility really depends on individual business needs. Photocopiers can achieve a large number of different functions, giving businesses the opportunity to centralize not only their printing but also their scanning, faxing and sending.Reliability Depending on their initial price, most desktop printers are not built to last more than a couple of years, which is partly why most people simply choose to replace any broken printers rather than having them repaired. Most businesses have a photocopier service agreement for large devices, meaning that a service engineer can be called out for any problems. Replacing a printer every time it breaks can cause costs to spiral out of control, especially if the device is over used.There are several factors to consider when deciding whether to centralize printing with one large multifunctional device, but evaluating whether or not this is viable is one step towards developing an effective print strategy and gaining control of print costs. Kyocera Copystar
Often overlooked is the ability of the copier and the expertise of the dealer’s support staff to integrate into your existing software. I’m not talking about “scan to email” and the basic functionality that all copiers have today. I’m referring more to, for example, native integration into your electronic document management system and other types of back end business systems. Even if you don’t have the need now or don’t even have those types of software systems, will you in the future? Chances are you will be entering into a 3 to 5 year lease commitment for your copier. You need to consider possible future needs.
The Kyocera Copystar Copiers and printersUpgrading to more up to date office equipment has many benefits. Devices like late model printer-copiers are effective in saving you money on printing costs, help conserve office resources, and make document storage more manageable.Investing in a multi-function copier-printer eliminates the expense of outsourcing copy needs. These machines are capable of copying and printing documents easily, for far cheaper than what would be normally charged at a copy store. Having a copy machine in the office enables employees to handle print and copy jobs instantly and by themselves, saving time, money, and resources. Imagine the convenience of having a copy machine right in the office when a reproduced document turns out to be a misprint, and therefore, needs to be reprinted and reproduced again.A printer-copier I would recommend is the Canon ImageClass D340. This machine is a desktop laser printer-copier that provides speed and reliability in one tiny package. It is able to produce letter-size and legal-size prints at a speed of 15 pages per minute, and make accurate copies with sharp, laser-print quality with a resolution of 600 x 600 dpi with its S-35 toner cartridge. It has a 50-sheet automatic document feeder to handle larger jobs easily. This highly efficient and reliable printer is equipped with both memory collate and toner save modes. It supports Windows 98, ME, 2000, XP and Vista.Replacing the printer cartridge is a breeze. The Canon ImageClass D340 printer is a monochrome laser printer so it operates with a single cartridge. A new printer/copier unit comes with the Canon S35 toner cartridge. Should the toner run out, replacement cartridges are easily available in most computer supply stores. As with all laser printers, though, the OEM replacement cartridge is rather pricey. A perfect alternative to this would be the remanufactured Canon S-35 Laser Toner Black.The Canon S35 Laser Toner Black S35 cartridge is manufactured according to OEM standards, and prints a high yield of up to 3,500 pages at 5% coverage. Encased in a hard plastic shell, the Canon S-35 Laser Toner is easy to install and will slide perfectly into your machine. Aside from the ImageClass D340, this cartridge is also compatible with the Canon Fax-L360, Canon Fax-L380, Canon Fax-L380-S, Canon Fax-L390, Canon Fax-L400, Canon Faxphone-L170, Canon ImageClass-D320, Canon ImageClass-D340, Canon LaserClass-310, Canon LaserClass-510, Canon PC-D320, and Canon PC-D340.

Compatible means that the cartridge will work with the specified equipment even though it is not made by the manufacturer of the equipment in question. In most cases this situation exists when the manufacturer of the original equipment does not have a patent on the design of the supplies or that patent expired. As with generic prescriptions, this allows manufacturers of generic supplies to make brand new compatible or generic cartridges. Examples of these are many ribbons for dot matrix printers, many Epson ink cartridges as well as many Canon ink cartridges. In our highly competitive and ever changing market, there are companies that will label remanufactured cartridges as compatible. It is hard to tell in all cases, but as a guide, here is a list of products where you can expect compatible or generic supplies to be available: copier toner, printer toner and Most HP, Lexmark, Canon, and Xerox laser toner cartridges can be remanufactured.
