Buying a copier is a big step toward efficiency, creativity, and productivity in your office--but before you make this important decision, there are a few things you need to know. Read on to find out how to be sure you end up with the best copier for your needs. 

What to Focus On

Buying copiers is one of those things that seems like it should be easy but isn't. After all, you have so many makes and models to choose from, so many features to research, and a lot of little choices to make--like whether you want it to connect to your network, and which security features fit in with your existing protocols.

With all of these details, it can start to feel impossible to find that one perfect device. Luckily, there are a few things you can focus on to make the whole process easier--that way, when you finally buy a copier, you know it's going to be perfect.


Remember, a copier costs more than the number on the price tag. Be sure to take everything into account, from maintenance to consumables. More expensive machines may be better for your budget in the long run since they're more reliable and offer higher-quality features.


These days, you're not limited to a copier that just copies. You could go for a multifunction device that prints, faxes, and scans on top of copying; this allows you to eliminate expensive single-function machines from your fleet and boost efficiency at the same time.


How fast is the copier? Does it offer color and black-and-white options? What are the security features? Ask these questions about any machine you're considering, just to make sure you end up with the right device.
