Is it possible to choose the perfect multifunction printer the first time? Can you find the best machine for your company, both for the present and in the future, without spending hours on the Internet and slogging through reviews and recommendations? It's not as hard as you might think. Today we'll look at a few handy tricks for choosing the perfect MFP quickly and painlessly.

The Right MFP

All multifunction printers are strong, capable, and efficient--but if it's not the right machine for your company, then it's simply not the right machine. MFPs are a big investment of time, money, and energy, and they require new training, a few updates in workflow, and sometimes even upgrades to existing practices or technology. That's why it's important to make sure you're choosing the right MFP the first time--so that you know you're headed in the right direction. Luckily, with these handy tips, the perfect MFP is always within reach.

Tip #1: Understand the costs and savings upfront.

Although money isn't everything when it comes to identifying the right MFP for your needs, it's important that you know exactly what you're paying for and how much you'll be saving. Remember to consider details like cost per page, lifetime cost, and the price of consumables--and take into account the fact that a little extra cost on the price tag can save money later.

Tip #2: Keep an eye on compatibility.

Don't go falling in love with an MFP that won't play nice with your network and other devices. Bring the IT department into the decision-making process and make sure that you're choosing a machine that can adapt to your existing processes.

Tip #3: Upgrade with your machine.

Don't just upgrade your print environment--consider upgrading your processes and workflow too. An MFP is a great starting point for new opportunities like going paperless or streamlining existing workflows.
