Picking the Perfect Color Copier

A new color copier is a vital piece of office equipment for any growing business. Whether you’re buying a new office copier outright or leasing a copier in Tucson, the machine you select should meet your specific needs. But with so many commercial color copiers to choose from, how do you know which model is right for your office? Here are some factors to consider that can help you select the perfect copy machine for your office environment.

Stand-Alone or Multifunction

One of the first questions you’ll need to answer is whether you want a stand-alone copy machine or a multifunction device. Although all-in-one multifunction devices provide incredibly functionality, you should make sure that your office has a need for all the extra functions since all-in-one machines are more expensive than stand-alone copiers.

Copy and Print Speed

Business-level copy machines are able to print pages much faster than standard consumer machines. Page per minute (PPM) indicates the number of pages that a copy machine is capable of copying or printing per minute. The higher the PPM, the faster your printed materials will be completed. However, as with the first question, you’ll need to decide if the added cost of a faster copy machine is worth the added cost.

Total Cost of Ownership

Different copy machines have different direct and indirect costs, which together over the life of the machine account for the total cost of ownership. If you are planning on buying a new office copy machine outright as opposed to going the copier leasing route, compare the total cost of ownership to get a sense of how much each copy machine will cost your business in the long run.
