Your office copier is a workhorse! Need handouts for your meeting in 10 minutes? Hit the copier. Got that big last-minute presentation? Yup, head to the machine room! When your copier is working, it's pretty easy to take it for granted.
Inevitably, there will come a time when your reliable copier starts to act up. Maybe you miss a deadline, or your copies are smeared. So how do you know when it's time to put the old copier out to pasture?
Here are some telltale signs to watch out for...
Security Not Up to Par
Copiers often output a lot of sensitive and confidential information, and can become a security risk if you don't take steps to protect them. One basic, often overlooked, step is simply changing the default password to a stronger one. Many old machines do not have the latest security protocols available. New copiers have the latest security measures built-in.
Replacing Parts is Getting Harder
Most manufacturers will support their technology for a few years after the last one rolls off the assembly line. However, at some point, parts may become difficult to find and expensive to replace. Often as technology ages, it gets increasingly difficult to repair.
Per Page Costs Are Going Up
Older machines typically use more raw materials like ink and toner and have a lower production rate making costs per page increase. Instead of spending more on old technology, it can actually be more cost-effective to replace your old machines.
New Technology Has Passed You By!
If you're using 10-year-old technology, you'll be amazed at how much copiers have evolved. You can do all kinds of formatting and modifications today that old machines just can't handle. If your old machine is holding you back, schedule a demo to explore all your possibilities!
