When it comes to buying a new multifunction printer, there are some essential features that you are going to need to look for. The good news is that many of the best machines today come with the majority of these features included as a standard.
Here are the standards your new printer should live up to.
A Good Touchscreen
Touchscreen printers are very common today because of the advanced technology that we have at our disposal. Touchscreens make it easy for anyone to use the printer, making the entire process more productive and efficient. Generally, this also means that those who are less technologically inclined or who have issues seeing those smaller, darker screens will have an easier time as well.
Almost every single multifunction printer out there connects to the Internet, and a good WiFi signal on your printer is absolutely essential. Whether you work at home or at the office, it’s important to be able to connect to the network without being limited to one computer or one specific printing area. This also means you can even print from your phone when you are on the go and in a rush.
Your new multifunction printer should have the capability to work with document security programs and security features to keep your printer safe. This means you should be able to install programs and add passwords for your staff to make sure that critical information sent to the printer does not end up in the hands of people it shouldn’t be.
The Ability to Save Energy
Many new multifunction printers that are made today come with certain advanced features that are designed to help you save energy. For example, some come with a power saving mode that allows the printer to go into standby mode when it’s not being used. Other printers come with different printing modes that use less ink or save paper by printing on both sides. Additionally, choosing a multifunction printer in itself is a more eco-friendly option because it replaces all of the stand-alone products in your office that use up more energy.
