There are times that we are just leaning next to a printer and waiting for the prints and spirited away. Alternatively, scan in page after page of the document which takes away a whole coffee break. In a small business environment, being able to focus on tasks and work effectively can bring the most productivity to daily work time. So what functions should be looked at for a small business use MFP?
Speedy – high printing speed, high printing quality, and high ADF scan speed
To be able to print fast is the main reason we choose laser printer, and it seems natural to fulfill but hard to achieve. Some incidents could slow down the printing process. For example, low quality or smudged prints that need to print again, paper jam cause fixing time, or do duplex printing manually. For any business environment, to have ADF scan could save a lot of filing time, it’s time to get rid of your flatbed scanner, and get a printer with fast ADF scan.
Stable – more monthly printing volume, long-lasting consumables, an overall healthy printer
A stable printer should be built to last long, and have a consistent printing quality. It’s time to open the printer and observe what’s inside. Durable metal frame and gears will support the printer for a long time working. Separate drum unit and toner cartridge design will last longer and lower the cost. The reason to choose the separate drum unit and toner cartridge printer is drum unit last much longer than toner cartridge; the ratio is about 1:4, which mean with one drum unit, you can use four toner cartridges. You can save more on consumables than one-piece toner cartridge. Of course, keeping the printer in proper maintenance will extend the service life.
Smart –Mobile printing, NFC connection, and Network sharing
Printing and scanning now could be unlimited to the desktop. With smartphones and tablets introduced into a working environment, printing becomes more mobile. Being able to print from smartphone or tablet is a must-have function for a multi-function printer. NFC printing makes the transfer from mobile device to the printer within seconds.
Simple – Easy installation, easy to use, simplified functions design to ease the jobs
A printer should not be a hard gadget that people need to take a long time to learn how to set up and use. We want to think an ideal printer should have easy one-step installation, less maintenance, and care, be able to finish a task with least setup and be adjusted setting with one button.
