Multifunction printers (MFPs) combine a printer, copier and scanner into one convenient machine. This makes them an essential piece of office equipment. In this blog, we’ve summed up the top three advantages of a multifunction printer and why your business should be using one.
MFPs are Convenient
One of the biggest advantages of a multifunction printer is that it is so convenient to use. Documents can be printed, copied and scanned in one place, without having to use several machines. An MFP is also space saving as you do not have to find space for multiple devices in the office.
MFPs are Cost efficient
As well as not having to purchase separate devices for each task, MFPs are cost efficient in the long run, because you only have the running and maintenance costs of a single machine. In addition, most MFPs have a very low cost per page rate for both colour and mono printing and offer accounting features that let you restrict printer use or allow default settings such as double-sided printing to reduce your costs.
MFPs are Smart
Most modern MFPs allow you to connect your printer with either your smartphone or tablet for wireless and cloud printing. This means you can print important documents, even when you are out of the office. In addition, every document that you copy, scan or fax using your MFP can be directly sent to your smartphone, tablet or laptop. Some models also allow users to check and send emails directly from the machine.
