If you’re like most business owners, your time is spent growing your business, not worrying about your print environment. Until there’s a problem. The fact is, if you’re working with outdated technology you could be missing out on the cost-cutting, productivity-boosting options new printers offer. Worse still, older technology doesn’t offer the built in security features necessary in today’s connected world.
It might be time to consider upgrading you printer equipment if you notice any of these signs:
Your costs are higher than they should be. There are ways to cut costs without reducing output. If your team is relying on old technology it may no longer be meeting their needs. If this sounds familiar, consider replacing outdated printers with new energy efficient advanced workgroup devices.
Your current device doesn’t offer the latest security features. In 2017 a smallbiz.com report found that 43% of cyber attacks targeted small businesses. One of the major entry points? The office printer. If your print device doesn’t offer these built-in features, it’s time to upgrade:
- Authentication – Users must verify using an identifier to output a document. No more sensitive documents lying around the printer.
- Print Encryption – Data is encrypted when it is sent to, or from, the print device.
- Password Protected Scanning – Newer MFPs offer password protection of documents so only the right people have access to the data they need.
It doesn’t improve workflows or productivity. The right device should streamline document workflows and improve productivity. Many new devices use app based technology to boost productivity and make printing easier and faster.
It doesn’t offer cloud compatibility or mobile printing. To be more productive today means your team needs access anytime, from anywhere, on any device. The latest mobile print solutions offer cloud based storage and make mobile printing fast and easy.
