Business owners and managers are always curious about how to ensure they have the best equipment that provides optimal functionality and efficiency. Choosing the best copier is an individual decision, though, and it depends on what your business needs.
We can help provide some baseline questions that will get you started in your search for a new copier. However, you’ll need to bring in some specific information from your office and workflow style as well.
Seek out the Machine You Need
First of all, you’ll want to do an inventory from employees, administrative assistants, and anyone else who uses your copier. What features do they want? How can you improve productivity and workflow? What would make their lives and work style easier?
Then, work on your research. Understanding that a copier has major service needs, you may want to decide how you’d like to navigate that with your vendor. This is where your selection of vendor comes into play, which is a crucial part of decision making. You want to work with a professional, knowledgeable, reliable vendor team.
Luckily, Document Systems has you covered on that front.
Next, we’ll dive into what questions to ask your vendor partner.
What to Ask
Start your copier search by letting your vendor know about the research you’ve done and the information you’ve acquired from your teams.
Then, ask about the following:
- What security features do you recommend?
- How extensive is the service agreement?
- What additional productivity-boosting or cost-reducing features are available?
These questions will narrow down the field to guide you toward a few machines that would work well for your office. You’re getting there! It’s a big investment, so you don’t want to skimp on your office equipment. Stay patient and keep taking in information and working with your team!
