In the last few years, we’ve seen a lot of innovative updates to digital copy machines and printers. Much has happened since our last update on touchscreen printers. Technology changes at a rapid pace and sometimes it’s hard to keep up in the world of office equipment.
Luckily, we are always up to date on the latest trends and are here to let you know what’s happening with the newest touchscreen technology.
The Convenience of a Touchscreen
Touch screen machines are extremely convenient, not only because they are the epitome of modern technology, but also because they are easy to use and make the printing process a lot more productive.
A touchscreen is especially important on a wireless multifunction printer because these machines tend to switch between functions frequently. You want to be able to go back and forth as fast as possible to avoid wasting time flipping between menus.
Apps to Touchscreen Printers
You can use your phone for just about anything these days, and printing from your phone is extremely easy with a touch screen machine. If you’re on the go and in and out of meetings frequently, this is a convenient option to have.
It’s also extremely helpful to connect your smartphone to your office printer because it can help you save time when something needs to be printed quickly. This also helps to avoid that lineup at the printer as many people attempt to print what they need at once.
Sometimes, depending on the size of your office, it can be hard to keep track of the details, such as how much is being printed and what portion of the budget is going to printing supplies. With smart touchscreen technology, today’s printers are able to keep track of all of that information for you, alerting you when it’s time to reorder supplies or if you should switch to power saving mode.
For example, Xerox has recently produced some office machines that use ConnectKey technology, which includes a tablet-like touchscreen interface that allows users to choose their function via apps.
A Better Visual Experience
If your business is based on visual content, you need a high-quality touchscreen that will allow you to preview and select certain photos. The high-resolution screen shows you exactly what you’re going to get when your documents or images come out of the printer.
Not only will a touchscreen allow you to see those images better in preview mode, this is also a great option for those with vision issues. If some of your coworkers or employees are having trouble seeing the screen, they will easily be able to zoom and enlarge the content.
Integrating New Technology in the Workplace
Bringing in new office technology can sometimes be tricky, but with the right machines, your team will soon realize the benefits an update can bring.
