The latest desktop photocopier models pack plenty of advanced features. These multifunctional business machines can copy, scan, print, and even fax. Some models even come with online connectivity, allowing employees to print or copy even outside of the office.
Looking to lease or buy a desktop copier? Here are a few things you must know.
For starters, they can only print in A4 - 210 mm by 297 mm. It’s a standard paper dimension in offices, but you should be aware that a desktop copier can’t produce bigger copies, like A3 for example. The additional parts necessary for copying on A3 paper will make the machine too big and heavy to place on a desk.
However, the small form factor of desktop copiers also carry many advantages.
Buyers on a budget would be pleased to know these machines are more affordable than floor-standing models. The latest desktop photocopiers can even reach copying speeds and quality worthy of a digital printing press, dishing out 70 single-page copies per minute.
The best desktop photocopiers have excellent flexibility, too.
A standalone desktop copier may fit your needs during the earlier years of your business. But as the company and the number of copying jobs grow, you may find that you’re refilling the paper tray far too often that you’d like, losing productivity in the process.
The good news is many desktop photocopiers have add-ons available. You may find that turning the desktop machine to a floor-standing one packed with multiple paper trays best suits your needs.
Leasing a desktop photocopier is normally the preferred option for smaller businesses. Office equipment leasing has grown in popularity in recent years - and for a long list of good reasons.
For starters, a balanced leasing contract lets you spread out your desktop copier cost into small monthly payments. All of which are 100% tax deductible! And since the terms often take 3 to 5 years, the lease rates are often lower than short-term rental rates spanning 12 to 24 months.
Leasing also takes the burden of ownership away from your business. When you buy a desktop copier, you’re also in charge of buying the consumables, routine maintenance, and repairs. All of these responsibilities can inflate your total cost of ownership.
When you lease a desktop photocopier, your contract can include constant ink refills, maintenance, and break-and-fix solutions, minimizing downtime and giving you peace of mind in case of technical difficulties.
