Cost 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 Copier Rental

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.

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.
