Is it time to upgrade your copiers & printers?Read More
Your copier is no longer performing as well as it should. It’s now years old, out-of-date, and it’s time for an upgrade. So you call up your copier service provider or a recycling service for responsible and environmentally friendly disposal and it’s replaced.
All good, right? Well, maybe not quite.
We’re all aware of the obvious security threats to our information – viruses, data breaches, data leakage in the cloud, simply losing information (or entire laptops), and many others. However, there are less-obvious security issues confronting businesses daily.
One of these could be your copier. For many of us, we understand that the copier of today is not the same as the one we used to copy notes and articles in college 20 plus years ago. You know your office copier doesn’t just copy, but also prints, scans, and faxes. What you probably haven’t thought through though is the security implications of your copier now being digital. Of course, it’s the digital construction of your copier that enables it to perform those functions. While it’s doing so, the hard drive in the copier is going old school and “makin’ copies” with every action – recording this information.Read More
One of the more annoying aspects of printers and copiers is that they always seem to run out of ink only when you really NEED to print a document. Managing ink and toner supplies for your office output devices can also be tedious.

I bet you didn’t realize that one of the simplest ways to protect your investment in your office equipment – and keep them running – depends on what you plug them into.Read More
Little black dresses at cocktail parties are 100% classic. Little black dots or lines on your copies are just 100% annoying. Fortunately, the solution is usually fairly simple; requiring some cleaning materials and a bit of elbow grease.Read More
Machines break. At some point, your copier or printer or computer or iPad or iPhone or, you get the point, will stop working either because something inside of the equipment broke or the software goes haywire. Broken copiers mean lost productivity.Read More
“I don’t work in a large office, there’s no way I need a huge piece of office equipment like a copier. Your title is wrong,” I can imagine some of you thinking. Read on, I think I can change your mind.
First off, printer ink is expensive. When you buy an “inexpensive” MFP or printer from a big box store, you think you’re getting a deal and the ability to print office documents economically. Not really. Depending on the printer, how much you print, and the yield (number of documents you can print from each ink cartridge), you could easily pay double, triple, or more than what you paid for the printer in just ink. If you’ve ever bought a razor on sale and then experienced sticker shock when you bought blades, you know exactly what I’m talking about.Read More
