Having the right photocopier in your office or workspace can make a big difference in the way your business operates. Even with some operations becoming paperless, there is still a large demand for high-performance, multifunction photocopiers.

Depending on the size and scope of your business, choosing the right photocopier can be a big responsibility. With so many models, brands and specifications to choose from, how do you choose the right one that works for your business?

At ComPro Business Solutions, we have over 19 years of office equipment experience and have helped multiple businesses find the right photocopier that fits seamlessly into their operations. Before choosing the right photocopier for your business, ask yourself the following questions:

Who will be using the photocopier?

If you will be the sole operator of your business’s photocopier than there is no need to worry about the preferences of others; however, if the new photocopier will be used by other people in the office, it is important to consider their needs before finalizing your selection. If you are choosing a new office photocopier to replace an older one, ask around the office to see what other people liked and didn’t like about the old model. Perhaps they have some suggestions about what they would like to see in the new one.

What is your budget?

Naturally, your budget will have a significant impact on the type of photocopier you select for your office. Fortunately, many multifunction photocopiers can help to improve productivity and reduce unnecessary office downtime. Treat the purchase of a new office photocopier like an investment in your business’s operations.

If your budget is limited, consider the benefits of purchasing a pre-owned photocopier. At ComPro Business, our pre-owned office photocopiers are fully taken apart, inspected, cleaned and tested. Our industry-leading reconditioning process ensures that our pre-owned office equipment performs like new equipment, at a fraction of the cost.

Choosing between new office equipment & refurbished office equipment

How much printing and photocopying will your company be doing?

Does your company print 10-20 pages per week or hundreds of copies each day? Before purchasing, determine how much printing your photocopier will be handling. At ComPro Business, our Sharp and Lexmark photocopiers are designed to handle large volumes of printing when needed. Each of our photocopiers has different engine speed specifications built for various printing volumes.

Does your business need colour copies or will black and white suffice?

This is an important consideration when choosing the right photocopier for your business. Do not solely consider your business’s current printing needs when making this decision. Consider its future needs as well. Does your business currently require colour printing and copying or will it require this in the near future? If so, then a multifunction colour printer is ideal.
