The Reason for the Popularity of Multifunction Devices

This year over 1.2 million office multifunction systems will be installed in the United States and the trend continues to grow. These systems provide printing, copying, faxing, and scanning features in one cost-effective system.
 
The initial logic behind these purchase decisions is obvious: it just makes sense to combine these similar functions for cost savings and fewer devices to supply. 
 
However, some of the biggest reasons behind the rapid adoption of these systems extend beyond cost savings. Multifunction devices can be combined with document management software to enable process automation, delivering bottom line results.
 
  • Streamlined Communication: Multifunction systems email, fax and print together. Scan to email functionality allows paper documents to be delivered securely to their recipients as email attachments while fax routing directs incoming faxes to email addresses.
  • Automated Business Processes: Multifunction systems provide a convenient on-ramp to get paper onto the network. New capture software allows information to be read from scanned documents where it can be routed through a pre-defined workflow. 
  • Enhanced Security: Security and compliance are hot new issues for virtually every industry. Multifunction systems can help enhance your corporate security with a secure Electronic Document Management System.   
 
If you are looking for a corporate initiative to save money, then you likely are considering or have already implemented multifunctional technology. Either way, we can help you leverage more value from this solution.
