It's not easy to choose the right copiers when there are so many options available, so many variables to consider, and so much on the line. After all, copiers are an important investment--you want to make sure you've got one that fits your needs. Luckily, with these simple tips, it's easier than ever to find that perfect match.

Before You Buy

One of the biggest mistakes most companies make when buying copiers is starting the process too soon. The truth is that, if you want to find the perfect copier for your business, you need to do a little bit of careful analysis before you even start looking at machines. Now, this doesn't mean hours of research. All you need to do is understand your copy habits, your current and future needs, and your connectivity requirements, and then you're good to go.

Simple Tips

Choosing the right copiers doesn't have to be a chore. Here are a few simple tips to help you out!

#1: Understand your options.

It's helpful to do a little bit of research on copier features before you start shopping. This helps you feel more prepared when it comes to choosing what you actually need--for example, do you want all the bells and whistles (like wireless printing), or will a simple copy machine do the job?

#2: Calculate the total cost of ownership.

Once you have a few options in front of you, pull out the calculator and calculate the total cost of ownership for each machine. Remember, copiers have an initial price-tag and a cost for energy, consumables, and repairs--and some copiers are less expensive overall than others.

#3: Don't forget color.

Copying in color isn't a priority for every business, but if you think it might be important for you, don't pass it up. There are ways to make it budget-friendly to copy in color--but, of course, black and white copies might be all you need.
