What if I told you that you that you could bring your office home with you?

Copiers are a critical part of the office landscape, and leasing one means that eventually, you’ll come to the end of that agreement. What do you do next? That depends on where you are with growth, capital, and costs and income.

So, your organization has decided to work from home, likely in response to COVID-19 and the pandemic we are all facing. I know, you were expecting pajama pants, slippers, and total comfort. Turns out that, while yes you have those things, it’s just like regular work. Only now it feels like you were separated from the group, almost as if you did something wrong. On top of that?

Your office is a productive place, but there are a few loopholes where employees can spend more time, extra supplies, and not make the best use of paid time.

The office copier - or any office equipment- is an essential part of the office environment, because it helps business flow. For meetings, collaboration, and innovation, employees need to be able to print, copy, scan, fax, and email documents to essential coworkers and partners.
