Technology will never stop evolving. Every week it seems as if there is some new device, software, gadget, application, or gizmo available that proves to make your life 10-times easier. It’s no different with office technology. When it comes to office equipment, having the latest tools and solutions is essential to making your company and its team members as productive as possible. Not to mention improving employee satisfaction by making it easier for them to do their jobs.

One of the byproducts of advancements in office technology is consolidation. Instead of having multiple pieces of bulky equipment taking up significant amounts of office space, you can get multiple functions out of a single device. That’s why so many companies are upgrading from their existing devices and taking advantage of multifunction printers (MFPs). The MFP is an all-in-one solution for offices, replacing the need for individual copiers, printers, scanners, and/or fax machines. Not only do these workhorses of the modern office save you space and energy, they come with impressive technology that makes sharing your documents cheaper and easier than ever. They also include features—such as Internet printing and app connectivity—to help improve the efficiency of your workflows. Modern MFPs provide companies with better connectivity and security, while lowering acquisition and maintenance costs. Switching to an MFP will also reduce the costs of machine consumables, such as toner and ink cartridges. Additionally, the quality of prints, scans, and copies has never been higher, giving you the opportunity to produce documents in-house that you typically would outsource to your local print shop.

Even if your company still has a need for a specialized, dedicated device for specific speed or volume requirements, you can benefit from upgrading to a modern device. In addition to top-notch print quality, today’s single-function printers are energy-efficient and boast impressive print speeds. They also feature enhanced screens and control panels, advanced media handling capabilities, and software solutions to help you solve business problems.

When deciding whether or not to update your office’s hardware, it is important to keep in mind that employees cannot achieve maximum productivity without quality tools. Without the right office technology even the most qualified employees are not able to efficiently do their jobs, and your workflow will suffer. By failing to adopt the innovative new technologies available in today’s printers, copy machines, and other office technology, your business could be held back. Working with obsolete or even outdated technology is likely harming your office’s overall efficiency and productivity.
