The wine industry in the Niagara Peninsula is booming. There are currently over 80 wineries located between Niagara-on-the-Lake and Beamsville, with new wineries starting up every year. Whether you are looking to open a new winery, or have already solidified yourself as must see attraction; you need to make sure you have reliable office machines and a reliable dealer to ensure that your business is operating at an optimal level. Wineries are a very paper oriented business but the cost of operating one is a very costly investment. You can’t afford to have unreliable office equipment or an unreliable dealer. Today we’ll examine 3 reasons why you should be leasing your office equipment in the wine industry.
Operating a winery is expensive enough, why invest in a printer?
Wineries still operate in a very paper oriented manner. You’ll be required to print, scan, and email/fax documents on a constant basis to make sure that you are compliant with all provincial laws and that you are keeping in contact with customers. A multifunctional printer (MFP) would best allow you to facilitate all of these office needs in an effective manner. Looking at the cost of a MFP may seem overwhelming, after all the cost of operating a winery, with all the necessary equipment investments, can seem overwhelming and the idea of choosing office equipment may be at the bottom of the list. Office automation is a necessary investment that your business cannot do without. However, the wine industry is constantly changing and you don’t want to find yourself growing exponentially with equipment that can’t keep up with you.
The benefits of leasing
- The cost. First and foremost, operating a winery is a long and expensive undertaking. By leasing your equipment, you will not be required to pay anything upfront, but rather pay smaller amounts at a predetermined fixed rate. This will allow you to budget before the due date, giving you a predictable monthly expense.
- A lease gives you access to a MFP that you may be unable to afford as a direct purchase. You want to ensure that you have the right technology that offers a range of services and for a lump sum, the best machine may be out of your budget.
- Due to the changing nature of the winery business, a lease will keep your equipment up to date and will be able to grow with you as you grow. When your lease ends, you will be able to upgrade to a model that suits your business.
The right equipment…and the right dealer
Choosing the right MFP and dealer can make all the difference to your winery. Your office machine needs to work seamlessly with you. A reliable dealer will help you choose a machine that works with your business, and that’s not necessarily the one with the largest price tag.
