Copiers, pretty much every office has one. Why do we get them though? What makes them an integral part of nearly every business in America, and in Madison? The convenience of throwing something on a piece of glass and then walking away with 20 copies to give everyone is impressive! Let’s not forget though why we get copiers in the first place. Copiers are here for our convenience. With certain copier vendors in Madison, there is this philosopy that there should only be one printing device per building. We do not share this philosophy. There must be a reason they reccommend this though… Here is why your copier company in Madison might be trying to make you get rid of all the office printers…
- They may not know how to fix the printers very well and don’t want a competitor in the account who can do something better than they can.
- They may be looking at this strictly from a cost basis and if you are going to buy one of their expensive machines, the only way to financially justify this is to shift all the copies to that new elephant in the room
- They want to own all the prints in your company (as do we…) The more they can capture every print in every company, the more financially stable they become in these challenging times.
That’s all good and fine, but what’s this have to do with you? Basically, if you can remember that copiers in Madison serve a purpose. They are here to make life easier. Printers do as well, what you need to do is to determine if BOTH objectives are being met… convenience AND cost savings with your copier in Madison!
