Your copier is a loyal and hardworking part of your everyday workflow. It helps keep communication clear, improves efficiency, supports productivity, and makes it possible to get the right information to the right places without wasting time--but what happens when your copier stops being so good at doing those things? How do you know when it's time to upgrade?
What to Look For
In a world full of constantly advancing technology and multifunction devices that are ready to replace your copier whenever you're ready to upgrade, it can be hard to know when you're ready to part with a loyal old machine. However, if it's the cost of a new device that's holding you back, the truth is that you're probably losing more money by using an outdated and inefficient copier. That's not always easy to notice, though. After all, it seems like "what we've always done" should also be "what always works," right? Unfortunately, that's not the case.
If you start to notice any of these signs, your copier might actually be costing you more than you realize--and that's when you know it's time to upgrade.
- The budget is slowly suffering. It might not be all at once, and it might not be noticeable at first, but older copiers will begin to cost more in maintenance and consumables over time. An upgrade will get you the most efficient machine with the most efficient prices.
- Efficiency is dropping. Older copiers are slower. If employees are always waiting around for their copy to finish or you have to make repairs too often, then your copier needs an upgrade--and you'll enjoy new opportunities for efficiency, too.
- Your data isn't safe. If your copier isn't meeting your security needs, then it's crucial that you decide to upgrade. A lot of important data is communicated through the network to a copier, and newer models have built-in ways to protect your info.
