The time when the office photocopier was the size of a bus, had a single black and white copying function and was treated with the awe of a full department in itself is long past.  Photocopiers have benefitted from microchip technology greatly reducing the size of copier machines, improved toner units and laser technology providing quality colour imaging and with vastly improved copy and feed mechanisms providing speed and efficiency.  In the same period of development, facsimile equipment became commonplace, the PC and networks became tools of managing most businesses and desktop publishing became a standard business presentation practice.As businesses continue to evolve, so does the office equipment that is available to them.  The major photocopier manufacturers have responded to today's needs in most offices by re-designing the traditional photocopier into a business hub unit.  As offices replace their photocopiers, many companies are now considering the more advanced technology to meet their everyday office needs.  Gone are the separate and costly individual pieces of equipment that provide photocopies in black and white or colour; the fax machine which was traditionally slow and notorious for creating bottlenecks in time and workflow; the extremely expensive to operate inkjets and small laser printers scattered around the desktops; the precious scanner that committed pictures and images into the computer system. In place of all these individual, and often nightmarish, machines now stands a business hub unit incorporating all of them.Overheads and rents on office space continue to escalate, making each square metre of floor space precious and accountable.  The clutter of individual copiers, fax machines, a myriad of individual desktop printers and scanners is not only wasteful on space, it is wasteful on the best use of facilities.  The advancement of office business hub units solves the whole dilemma of space and personal equipment, reduces the need for trailing cables for power, telephone and PC cabling and makes most efficient use of each of these copying, printing, faxing and scanning facilities throughout the whole business.  Today's multifunction Biz-Hub digital copiers and printers, incorporating fax and scanning facilities, are environmentally friendly and aesthetic designs that will compliment any office layout. The Biz-Hub equipment itself is at the forefront of technological development in office facilities.  Copy quality on both black and white and colour is excellent, with first class colour balancing and density and crisp sharp lines and type.  The Biz-Hub operates as a central networked printer facility, alleviating the needs for inkjets and smaller printing equipment being scattered about the offices.  In-built scanners provide direct facilities for loading documents and pictures into the networked system, or to directly upload to the internet via HTTP language, or to scan directly to fax or email.  The inbuilt fax facility allows documents to be transmitted directly from file, removing the need to have a printed copy, or allows scanned documents to be forwarded by fax or can be accessed with the network for facsimile mail to be created and sent from the user's work station.  Print speeds of up to 65 colour pages per minute are available on some models and the Biz-Hub unit will often provide document duplexing and a wide range of finishing and binding facilities within a single pass.  All of this can be operated from any of your network's workstations or by direct access at the Biz-Hub's easy to operate touch screen control panel.Many Biz-Hub models are supplied with an in-built 60GB hard drive as standard, giving the facility for document and image storage at the equipment and the ability to recall standard or regular jobs for 'print on demand'.  When coupled with commercially available software, the Biz-Hub system becomes an integral part of a document storage, management and retrieval system for any size of business - paving the way towards a truly paperless office.Service and maintenance on this office equipment has been harnessed to provide the most cost-effective and time-saving facilities ever available on office equipment.  By building in a 'Remote Care' monitoring facility, these machines will automatically advise requirements for toner, consumable parts, fault diagnosis (often before the operator becomes aware) and monitor copy speeds and quality, directly to the service department of the specialist supplier.  With this excellent facility, the Biz-Hub equipment experiences minimal down-time due to failure or lack of consumables and service engineer's calls are scheduled for preventative maintenance to maintain constant operation.The Biz-Hub digital copier, printer, scanner and fax is capable of taking care of all of your office documentation needs at one central point, networked into your office system.  They prove to be economical in all aspects of their operation and are an essential piece of equipment for the business of today, and tomorrow.

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.

Centralizing Printing to a Multifunctional Photocopier

In 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.

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.
