A Multifunction Printer (MFP) is a piece of office equipment that combines a printer, a copier, a scanner and fax into one machine. MFPs consolidate assets, reduce costs, and improve workflow.
Every office has the need for printing. According to Forbes, scanning and faxing are essential to a firm's operations.
The publication stated that: "More companies rely on scanning and faxing than you would imagine, despite the prevalence of online and digital solutions."
So as much as you would love to throw away the printer it just isn’t logical to operate a functioning business.
Advantage 1: Cost
Instead of purchasing a machine to print, one to fax and one to copy and scan you only need to purchase an MFP to operate all of those functions. This will dramatically reduce printing costs.
Advantage 2: Space
Space is one of those things no one has enough of. With multiple printers in numerous places around the office you are taking up way more space than needed. MFPs will help reduce office clutter.
Advantage 3: Time
Time is money and as anyone in the office environment knows there’s never enough of either. With the MFP your employees can save time and be more productive. MFPs typically operate faster than other printers and a lot of them can send faxes, print documents, scan images and copy all at the same time.
MFPs put printing, scanning, copying and faxing all into a single machine, which is a great space-saver, money saver and time saver.
Money, space and time: These are all things you could use more of so purchase an MFP and start seeing these advantages in your office.
