Copier and Printer Solutions Orange OhioIn the era of a "down economy" many companies are searching every avenue to save money. Some companies have tried to go the route of used equipment. Buying from Craigslist, Ebay, Lease returns and other used equipment sources. does it save money? or Is it as costly or more costly as new?Over the years I have seen used equipment purchased in many environments. Frankly the results have been mixed. Sometimes, companies have found a great fit that was a great savings for them. More often, I have found companies disappointed. The savings have either not been what they expected and some times a direct loss.Over the years one of the greatest mistakes I have seen with the purchase of used equipment is improper shipping. A number of years back, one customer called for help with a folder inserter they had bought from a few states away. The seller had boxed the 70+ pound machine in a heavy duty box with Styrofoam popcorn. Now, popcorn is an OK packing material for light weight product. Unfortunately, it is not adequate for what is in essence a 70 lb brick. Needless to the machine did not arrive in an operational mode. The frame was bent and need serious repair and replacement parts before the machine would work. Another customer called us for help with an address printer. The printer was so bent it could not be repaired. A few years back, I thought I had found a "DEAL" at a lease return house that I could resell at a great profit. Unfortunately, the machine had an electrical glitch that would have cost $1,000's to repair (more than the machine was worth).Two years ago I was working with a time share resale company to acquire an addressing machine. They decided instead to purchase a machine from eBay. The machine worked but not so well. After using that machine for six months and then trying another used machine, they finally purchased a new machine. Shortly after delivering and installing the machine I received a text from one of the principals, "Homer, I'm in love." was the response. They were able to increase their productivity from 4,000 to 6,000 pieces per hour to nearly 20,000 pieces per hour (oh, and achieve a better approval rate from the United States Postal Service (i.e. less postage $$)).In another setting, a company leased a used copier because they felt they would save dollars because it was a used copier. In the end, they are spending more money for the used copier and are receiving less utility. The used copier, was slower, higher supply costs and not the same quality of print they would have received with a new unit.So the moral of the story, Used equipment might save you money. But, if your going to purchase used equipment make certain you have a company that can service your equipment. It is not IF you will need service but how often you will need it. It may look inexpensive at the outset but it may just be cheap. Unfortunately cheap, frequently means more expensive.Also, don't be afraid to look at new equipment. Many manufacturers are putting together promos and lease packages that make New Equipment actually less expensive. They are motivated to move the gear out of their showrooms and warehouses. So ASK. Make sure you have "right-sized" your equipment. With all of the changes in our world, you may not need as large of a machine as you once did. Then again, maybe you do. Take a look, either way, having the right equipment will be budget saving in the end.Look for new equipment that fits your budget. Equipment that you know the history of, Equipment with a warranty, Equipment that has someone who will support you in accomplishing your mission with the equipment.
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.
Laser Printer Copier Vs Inkjet: Which Is Better for Your Business?How does a typical office look like? You could have a scanner, telephone, fax machine, few PCs, and a printer. Now, all these can be costly and be difficult to maintain. If you want to save yourself less headache, you better get yourself a multifunction printer.What are the benefits of all-in-one printers?If you have been wondering why even Fuji Xerox, one of the biggest names in photocopying machines, decided to produce all-in-one printers, then here's the answer for you. They have just discovered that there is a growing demand for multifunction printers, perhaps because of the following reasons:1. You can have almost everything you need in one device. Why do we say almost everything? The chance of finding an all-in-one printer that has everything you need is close to nothing. Nevertheless, most of the multifunctional printers are equipped with either copier, scanner, fax machine, or telephone.2. They are very easy to maintain. Because you have the equipment that you need in one technology alone, there will be lesser device for you to take care of. You will not have to keep a lot of manuals with you. This also means that you will not have to communicate with several offices to have your equipment fixed. If something is wrong with the scanner, you just need to contact the manufacturer of the multifunction printer. If you have a problem with the printer and the fax machine, it can be solved by one person alone.3. You can also save space. One of the common problems with office equipment is that they are very bulky and they eat up a lot of your space. If you are not blessed with a lot of storage facilities in your workspace, you can make use of all-in-one printers. You also do not have to deal with several machines at one time.4. You can save on costs. It will actually be more expensive for you to purchase the office equipment one by one than to buy a multifunction printer. This then becomes beneficial for your company, especially if you are trying to save on your expenses. You are also offered with extended warranties, so you will not have to worry about the overall maintenance of the all-in-one printers.What are the downsides?However, multifunction printers are not perfect. They do have issues that need to be addressed by their manufacturers as soon as possible. For one, one function can be compromised in favor of the other. Your all-in-one printer can print quality images, but it will not be an excellent choice when you want to scan some materials.Moreover, there is a huge chance that you cannot use of the features simultaneously. You cannot print a document and scan another. You cannot send a fax message while your multifunction printer is still printing. The disadvantages, however, do not really erase the fact that multifunction printers are set to improve productivity and efficiency of your office. You just need to invest in one.

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.
