Despite all the technological advancements and the need for a so called paperless workplace in the digital age, printers remain an integral part of any business.
For a smaller business, a small printer is probably enough to help you get the basics done when it comes to printing. However, when your business begins to grow, you soon discover that the little printer on a table behind your employees isn’t keeping pace with your needs. And this is when it’s time to upgrade to a freestanding printer such as the Ricoh IMC2000, IMC2500 and IMC3000.
Naturally, you’re going to have a lot of questions as to why a freestanding printer can make a significant difference to your printing and productivity, so let’s take a look:
Why upgrade to a freestanding printer?
• Multifunctional: A freestanding printer delivers enhanced functionality compared to the typical consumer desktop printer. Coupled with its printing capability, a freestanding printer will also come loaded with copying and scanning technology. This allows you to purchase a one-stop solution to several critical business functions. And, although fax communication has seen a severe drop in popularity, printers such as the Ricoh IM C2000 also come with fax capabilities.
• Fast Page Speed: One of the most appealing and most obvious benefits of upgrading to a freestanding printer is the enhanced page speed. Productivity has always been crucial in business, but even the tiniest margins can make a huge difference in the competitive business landscape we find ourselves in. Therefore, anything that can help you complete your business tasks quicker is better. And when it comes to freestanding printers such as the Ricoh IM C3000, you’re looking at a continuous output speed of 30 pages per minute.
• Enhanced Controls: With a central touch panel available, freestanding printers grant your employees more control than ever before when it comes to printing. These powerful control panels allow you to select functions such as double sided printing, copying and scanning while also allowing you to quickly adjust paper sizes and print quality. Advanced functions such as these ensure that the end product is less prone to mistakes and less likely to waste paper on incorrect prints.
• Quality Upgrade: As with all enhanced technology, one of the main selling points is the step up in quality. The Ricoh IM C range, for example, can deliver print resolutions of up to 1200 x 1200 dpi and this gives you the opportunity to create printed materials which are of an exceptionally high standard. This not only reflects the quality of your materials, but also underlines your company ethos of delivering the very best in every department.
Growth is an essential part of any successful business, but to achieve this growth you need to surround yourself with the correct equipment. A freestanding printer is one of the ways you can get there and, once installed, your employees will thank you for making the transition to a more active business an easier one.
