Does your office equipment keep your processes humming along without interruption? Many office managers can only wish that was the case; their office equipment is a daily drain on staff morale that keeps everyone wondering when to expect the next disruption.
Are you ready to add a new printer to your office equipment line-up, but aren't sure whether to buy an inkjet or laser printer? The decision isn't difficult once you study the differences, but the wrong choice can be hard on the budget.
Here's how to decide which type of imaging equipment is right for your office.

Inkjet printers use liquid ink that's either pigment or dye-based. The downside of dye-based ink is that it's not water or smudge-proof, making it impractical for photographs or graphic arts use.
Your employees are familiar with your existing software and processes, and no one can blame them for resisting change. Even so, it's time to face the facts: like any other technology, software has a lifecycle and ignoring it isn't a good idea.

If you were greeted with a collective groan the last time you announced a new technology for your workplace, we're not surprised. Your employees may feel as if they've just gotten comfortable with your last technology acquisition, and process disruptions are rarely greeting with enthusiasm.
Even so, waiting too long to upgrade can have some serious consequences for your company, including security vulnerabilities and trouble competing in an increasingly tech-driven marketplace.
Most companies that enter into a Managed Print Services engagement are looking for reduced costs, improved print-related workflows, and better-performing equipment with fewer downtimes, the service rarely disappoints. Now with ongoing threats to network and information security, expanding MPS offerings to include print security is is a common practice. Here's how your company can achieve enhanced print security with Managed Print Services.
You've no doubt heard of the data breaches that impacted well-known businesses like Equifax, Sony, and Target. Unfortunately, thousands of other devastating security breaches never make the news because they happen to small companies just like yours.
