                 <h2>Printer Functionality</h2>
<p>The first obvious advantage of the multifunction printer or
multifunctional device (MFD) as it’s often known, is functionality –
the impressive range of capabilities that most MFP’s/ MFD’s will be
able to offer. Typically, an MFP will provide you with photocopying,
network printing, scanning, faxing, and all usually colour printing and
copying capability too. And today, most MFP’s are usually internet and
network ready, so they can be quickly, simply and seamlessly integrated
into your existing office systems and workflows.</p>
<h2>Space Saving Multifunction Printers</h2>
<p>Most offices that install an Multifunction Printer (MFP) will find
they save on a lot of space. Often smaller businesses would simply have
done without the high level of functionality a multifunctional device
affords, thinking they had to choose between whichever single function
machines were available to them, based on their business priorities and
the limited amount of space. Thankfully, today’s MFP’s, along with
offering ever increasing levels of functionality are becoming more and
more compact. While a multifunctional device/printer is still typically
larger than a standard office printer, in terms of what an MFD/MFP offers
for its size, that’s the performance to size ratio, it obviously
compares very favourably with a standard office/desktop printer. For
larger office set-ups, many will find a new MFP will out-perform their
separate single function devices on those individual functions. The new,
Canon imageRunner Advance multifunction printer, for instance, will copy
and print at a staggering rate of up to 70 PPM. Considering a lot of
offices will be under-utilising their existing devices, combining
functions, with an MFP that performs well across the range of
capabilities, could be an ideal, space-saving solution.</p>
<h2>Reliability</h2>

href="http://www.falcondocumentmanagement.co.uk/multifunction-
printers.html">Multifunction printers</a> are heavy-duty machines that
are built to last. A standard office/desktop printer is not designed to
withstand the constant, often heavy-handed and varied usage that will be
typically thrown in the direction of an MFP/MFD. Depending on the size
and price of the machine you’re choosing, MFP duty cycles will usually
beat or at least equal those of most office printers and will certainly
put the average desktop printer to shame. As robust as they are,
MFP’s/MFD’s will need less attention and your company downtime could
be cut considerably, even when compared with your existing single
function office devices. And unlike a range of various single function
office devices, running just one multifunction printer at any one time,
means your chances of seeing an engineer and the associated bills are on
average much lower, replacing the three potential fault risks with just
one.</p>
<h2>Reduce Page Cost</h2>
<p>By replacing your usual desktop/office printer with a multifunction
printer, you can usually make significant savings. The lower initial
outlay for most office, desktop printers can make them very much more
attractive when compared with a multifunction printer. However, the day-
by-day running costs of a desktop printer could be considerably more.
Toner/ink cartridges can be very expensive, sometimes as much as £50,
and often require disappointingly regular replacement. If you buy or
lease an multifunction printer, you can make a significant reduction on
your printing costs. Firstly you can usually opt for a service/support
agreement where the MFD will be completely maintained and repaired fro a
fixed cost per print copy. And all parts, toner and labour can be
included. Printing this way, the total cost to print will normally be
around 25% of what the cost to print to a workgroup would be, so savings
on your consumables could be substantial. Many organisations are now
making significant savings by printing to an MFP rather than a workgroup
printer.</p>                <!--INFOLINKS_OFF-->
