Finding the Right Ricoh Copier for You
Before starting to compare machines, it is important that you take stock of what your precise requirements are and how they will evolve over time. This could include speaking to different stakeholders to get a measure of how important some factors will be vs. others.
Having this clear picture of your needs articulated upfront will make it much easier to decide which things you are willing to compromise on and which you aren’t when it comes to making a final decision.
Criteria for finding the right copier
There are several things you should take into consideration before you make your purchase:
- Features – Modern printer copiers come with a wide range of features and functions that you will have to weigh up. At the most basic level, do you need a full service, multifunctional device that includes print, copy, scan and fax capabilities, or could you get by with just a copier? Beyond that, devices also offer more advanced features like scan to email, “scan once, copy many” that will vary from one model to the next.
- Size – For smaller businesses where office space is at a premium, compact options are available. The added benefit of these machines is that they are also often quieter. This obviously comes with the compromise of fewer features or reduced performance.
- Speed – There are a number of factors relating to speed that you should consider in your decision. Firstly, warm up time is how long it take for the machine to boot up once you switch it on, or make a print request. The second factor is print speed, which is usually measured as pages per minute. Speed can be an important factor in situations where you are printing high volumes, or where you have a large number of employees using the devices.
- Budget – Clearly budget will be an important factor when it comes to making your final decision, however it is important to think about your longer term needs and make sure your purchase will be useful to you as your business grows.
