Home printer just won’t cut it. It is not manufactured to handle high volumes of print runs. Keep in mind that a student or person who uses a printer at home only uses it occasionally. So to them, it is sufficient and appears to last long. For you that run a business such a printer won’t last long because it cannot cope with printing everyday throughout the year. It probably can’t hold a lot of paper anyway.
For a business, it is necessary to find a printer that can handle high print volumes and that is durable. Also, it is ideal to select a printer that has multi-functionality. A printer that can print, copy, scan and, possibly, fax is very useful to a business. We live in a modern age so a fax is probably not necessary but if you tend to receive and send documents daily, you will require a document scanner. You need to be able to quickly scan a document to your laptop so that you can email it. The same is applicable in the opposite sense, when you receive a document, you should be able to easily send it to print. While we’re on the modern age topic, everything is wireless in this era. If you are on the move and don’t tend to sit in one office all the time, for example perhaps you need to meet a client in the boardroom, then a wireless print management solution is an option. You need access to your printer from anywhere in your office building. If this is important to you, then it is advisable to select a printer that has WIFI capability.
The right printer for your business will be one that fits your needs. Work out beforehand how often you print, if you scan documents regularly, and how many documents you copy daily. Also consider if you send faxes often or if you scan and email documents instead. This will allow you to be informed when you are looking for a printer then you can zone in to the print management solution that offers the applications you need.
