If you’re in the market for a new copier, you must find one which suits all your needs. You might find it a little confusing as there are many machines that are operated using different technologies. You can easily get lost in the numerous brands and types of printers, when you’re searching for one that’s not only the best but also affordable. It’s a substantial investment so you should consider all points before buying a new copier machine. Here are a few tips to help you make a decision:
In case of copiers and volume, always overestimate the volume of copies you would require. You’d know the amount of copies you would require per day already, so be sure to find out the number of copies your new copier can give. If you’re planning to buy a copier/printer which can print, fax and copy, add a minimum of 30%to the total number of copies. Overestimating leaves room for any chance of overusing the machine, especially while you’re just learning how to use it.
Learn about the features
Find out whether the machine you are buying has all the features you’re looking for. Does it provide the quantity of copies / printouts you require at the speed you want? Instead of buying a machine that is expensive to boot and has many unnecessary features, buy one that is cheap and has as many features as you need. You’ll save a lot of money if you do this.
There would be many vendors who would want to sell their machine to you. Ask them the benefits and plus points of their particular model/ brand and the price advantage they are willing to give you. You should also enquire about maintenance, supplies, terms of lease (if you want to lease a machine), and sale. Compare the different price quotes, and set your maintenance and supply budget before buying. This would help you in buying the best machine for your office.
