It's amazing how badly the wrong printers can slow down your company's projects. It's equally amazing how the right ones can change everything.
Take a look at our buying tips to make sure the printers you choose make everything better—not worse.Check These Printer Capabilities
The industry's state-of-the-art printers include so many new features that it can be a bit confusing when it's time to narrow down your choice. After you've decided on some basics, schedule a meeting with your dealership to get some help finding the right printers for your needs.
1. Speed & Duty Cycle
Speed requirements vary, of course, based on your company's project load and workgroup size. For big demands, look for printers with plenty of speed and power, plus a monthly duty cycle equipped to keep up with your project deadlines.
2. Image Quality
The best laser and inkjet printers deliver outstanding quality, with consistently high results. Choose a resolution and dpi that works for your applications, and be sure to request some print-outs to check for quality.
Robust security protocols on your printers are just as important as they are on your networks. In fact, the two connect, and overlooking printer security is a huge mistake. Look for advanced security features like user authentications and hard drive data encryption to keep your sensitive information safe.
4. Finishing Options
The choice of professional finishing options on the latest multifunction printers are second to none. Booklet finishing, stapling, and 2/3 hole punching capabilities make it easy to produce reports, employee training, and HR manuals, as well as customer-facing materials in-house and on demand.
