Colour Multifunction Devices
Colour multifunction printers have been available for a number of decades, and the units available today are faster, and provide crisper reproductions, than ever before. They work as efficiently as black-and-white multifunction printers, but they also enable you to create replicas of visual documents in any hue or variety of shades. The colour multifunction printers designed by Kyocera are available as stand-alone or multifunction units, and provide exceptional quality copies in any colour.
Tips for selecting the right Colour Multifunction Printer for your company
Choosing the right Multifunction Printer (MFP) for your business requirements depends upon the type of printing needs your business has on a daily basis.
Follow the tips below to ensure that you select the best unit for your company’s copying requirements:
First and foremost, work out how many copies your company will require on a daily basis, and whether these will be colour or black-and-white copies. Copier speed is measured in PPM (pages per minute), and black-and-white copies are generally faster to produce than colour ones. Ensure that the unit you choose works quickly enough to handle your company’s copying requirements.
Estimate how many copies you’ll need to make every month, and then consider the maximum amount of monthly prints for each unit in question, as recommended by the manufacturer.
Think about the other office requirements you may have: It may be worth purchasing a multi-function unit that incorporates several different office and communications functions into one efficient piece of equipment. Multi-function colour printers, cut costs, reduce space wastage and offer a comprehensive communication solution which usually includes faxing, scanning, copying and printing.
What is the size of the copies you need to make? Certain MFPs only print A4-sized documents, so if you need to make larger copies, ensure that the device you purchase has the functionality to do so. Also look out for other options you may need, such as reduction, enlargement, stapling and double-sided printing.
All in One Colour Printers such as the Kyocera TASKalfa 7551ci Multifunction Colour Printer offer all of the above.
