Purchasing a multifunctional printer (MFP) is a first step toward boosting the productivity of your printing processes. It's a good choice for businesses of all sizes, from small/home offices to multi-department companies. But finding the right MFP can be a challenge, especially considering the variety of models and the sheer number available today.
There is an MFP to meet every need, match every budget, and perform every job. Use this simple guide to finding the right device for you.
There are as many different kinds of multifunctional printers as there are businesses, and there is absolutely a model out there for you. The most useful way to decide which MFP is the best for your needs is to categorize them by intended use. Will you be using this machine in your home, office or both?
If you are using your MFP at home, inkjet may be a good choice. Home printing often involves photos and color projects, and inkjet printers deliver stunning results on these jobs.
Office-ready MFPs are workhorses, able to print fast, clear results at high volumes. A laser printer is probably best for a large office since laser is known for high-quality text printing. You'll probably also want an automatic document feeder for a larger office that cuts down on time spent in front of a printer.
A multifunctional printer that fits comfortably into your home and office life is an especially good choice if you work out of your house. You'll probably want an inkjet for good quality photo and color printing, but included automatic document feeding and fax capabilities.
All MFPs print, scan, and copy, and most also fax. But beyond these general capabilities, what will you use your MFP for? Consider some of the following questions:
Always ask an expert about your machine's total cost of ownership (TOC). Your MFP should have a low TOC to boost your overall return on investment over time.
