Copier security is essential for securing your business data - not just your copier. Many people think that copier security is just for keeping the machine running, but it's actually for keeping your entire business running. When you think of it like that, it's not something you want to overlook, is it?
If your copier isn't functioning, that means your employees aren't completing projects and your business isn't functioning. Right? A copier seems like it's just running in the background, but everyone knows that the copier is the final stop for productivity, communication, and output.
Copiers definitely make our lives easier, but there are often issues (even ongoing issues) that can make your office equipment less efficient.
Luckily, most problems are easy to fix and working with a reliable vendor partner like Usherwood Office Technology makes it simple to fix any copier, or any other equipment issue, that you have in your office.
Your copier lease is almost up, and it seems like decision time - do you renew? Do you renegotiate? Do you purchase a machine? There are many questions, especially when office operations are different for the time being, and it's hard to know how workflows and hard copy use will change in the next few years.
Knowing that your copier is essential to your business and treating it like a critical device is sometimes different in a business. While you can't operate without your copier, it might be hard to remember to invest in proactive maintenance, understand costs, not have too many devices, and avoid improper use of toner and paper storage.
Copiers are critical, but you must control the device, the network, and the costs to realize the full benefit to your business.
Your copier needs to be a few things without fail: It needs to be functional, reliable, and cost-effective. If you're buying a new copier or replacing an old one, you want to make sure your copier meets those requirements in addition to meeting the needs of your business, teams, and company growth.
Getting the best copier is easy when you work with the right team. Talk to Usherwood Office Technology to get started, or read on below to learn more and then reach out today.
Office copiers are communal devices that are touched, moved, and accessed by many employees. As your office returns to a new work environment after the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic, cleaning and disinfecting your office equipment will be a new, higher priority.
While many companies allow occasional personal use of office machines and equipment, it is common practice to take advantage of this offering. Almost 80% of office workers tend to run personal projects on office equipment. This can increase your print costs substantially while not even addressing business needs.
Is there a better way to control your print and copy output?
Absolutely. You don’t want to create a blanket policy against personal printing, because that can make employees go directly against a policy, retaliate, or significantly reduce morale.
Printers and copiers are critical parts of the workplace, and they are part of the team. Part productivity, part cheerleader, part admin support, your printer, and copier can make a big difference in how your office gets the work done.
