Why haven’t you upgraded your old equipment? It still works right? (Mostly? Sometimes? Only when you kick and scream?) It costs too much to upgrade? You’ll get to it…someday.
Here’s the scoop: When network equipment reaches a certain age, its manufacturers will eventually stop developing upgrades to keep the equipment functioning effectively. Without these updates, the equipment will continue to slow down, breakdown and degrade. More importantly, a lack of upgrades for older equipment means your network might not be safeguarded against cyber attacks. (FYI – Our managed IT services can help with this.)
We understand that the idea of investing in a new copier is overwhelming and it’s crucial to work with a company that has the capacity to educate, listen and match you with the right machine.

A tremendous percentage of the workforce is mobile and the trend toward remote work is continuing to increase. In this new digital environment, the old nine-to-five approach is becoming obsolete. The world doesn’t stop and approval delays can make the difference between new business and lost business.
It’s never been more important to provide systems for remote access to documents and to digitally capture and store new documents as they’re created. It’s imperative that remote employees have access to Business Process workflows in order to avoid delayed approvals and lost paper documents.

Along with printing and copying, these machines can fax and scan to locations such as email, USBs and cloud-based services.

These MFPs are designed to meet business printing needs while cutting supply costs and increasing workflow. They can be purchased or leased, and an array of accessories is available for most models.”
