How to Choose the Best MFP for Your Small Business


Investing in a printer is a big decision for any business, but even more so for a small business, because expenses matter. When you are running the show, you need machines that are cost-effective and efficient and get the job done – all while being part of your larger cost strategy, right?

Starting with a Multifunction Printer

A multifunction printer (MFP) may be exactly what you need. In any industry, you'll have demanding print requirements, productivity issues, and growth needs. You want your printer to meet you there and deliver the quality and outcomes that you need. Operations matter, cost matters, and you need equipment that covers all aspects of a business.

Small Businesses Need Solid Solutions

What do you need in a MFP? Some things will be specific to your business, so take a look at how your equipment is used, and ask your employees for feedback.

Then, consider some of the following priorities.

  • Quality
  • Data security
  • Storage management
  • Supply use
  • Speed
  • Legibility

Once you've evaluated industry standards for printers, you'll also want to get feedback from employees about what they need to make their workflows better. It's possible to improve many aspects of operations with the right MFP; you just need to work with a knowledgeable vendor team to ensure that you get the best product for your business.
