So what’s the difference, you ask? Plenty!
First, a copier… well… it copies and that’s all it does. What good is that?
An MFP, short for Multifunctional Printer is an entirely different thing. Yes it copies, but that’s just the beginning. In the long run, that’s probably the thing that it will do the least of!
The MFP can Copy, Print, Scan, Store and sometimes Fax. The MFP is a highly powered “Peripheral” device which replaces multiple devices and integrates them seamlessly into one centralized point. The MFP is the main I/O (Input/Output) device for managing the flow of documents into and out of your computer network.
But it gets better!
Today’s better MFPs are also “Web Enabled”. What does this mean to you and your co-workers? well, to begin with you are now able to access “Cloud Services” and utilize Mobile Printing. These two innovations take productivity and utility to new highs. Imagine the possibilities!
From remote workers to sales forces working in a client’s office, all of the data they require to work at their peak levels are available, on demand! How about printing documents to the MFP even though you may be hundreds of miles away? Let’s do it!
Then there is Document Management. Scanning, Storing, Retrieving and Archiving. The MFP is the hub through which these processes are enabled and made to be user friendly. Good Stuff!
Do all MFPs do all of these functions you ask? No. In evaluating what is the best MFP for your organization, you need to look beyond what you think you need right now. You need to pull out your crystal ball and look into the future. OK, maybe not that, but you do need to imagine possibilities and try your best to “Future-Proof” yourself before investing your money in a solution.
The best way to gain the knowledge and insights you need in order to make a truly informed decision is to work with a high quality, knowledgeable and fully-authorized MFP dealership. The consultant from an organization like this will take the time to review your current and future needs, making a recommendation based upon these findings. This is valuable information and time well spent.
