The world of copying and printing can be a world full of expenses. Copying machines cost money, regardless if they are leased or purchased. When a machine breaks down it needs to be repaired. The cost for this is either a long-term service contract or on a situational basis. Supplies cost money as well. Here are a few tips to help your business save money in this crucial area.
Don’t pay for features you don’t need
Just because a copier has many bells and whistles, this doesn’t mean you need all the features. Don’t pay extra for features you won’t use.
Consider the entire cost
Often a business considers the cost of the machine, or the cost of the paper, or even the cost of repairs. Take a step back and look at the wide picture. What is the cost of all this together? This will help you know what you are really paying for your copier.
Not all companies need to invest in color
Black and white are still a viable option to save money. If your company doesn’t print materials that need a lot of color, don’t worry about investing in color producing hardware. Black and white are fine for most situations many companies will encounter.
