Printer selection is wider than ever before, offering something for every business, of every industry and size. Yet rather than making your printer purchase easier, the scope of selection can feel overwhelming. In this post, we’ll advise you on the most important features to look for in your next printer. It should help you manage your costs Whether you’re ready to put a managed print program into place today or down the line, the printer you choose for your small business should be equipped with tools that give you the ability to track how your printer is being used. Apps like the Universal Printing Assistant can monitor all of your networked printers automatically, from anywhere, right on your smartphone or tablet. You’ll know when your printers are online, alert, or in need of toner. Understanding your printer usage can help you cut your print costs by reducing the number of documents you print and preventing documents from being left sitting in the printer tray, a move that is not only wasteful but also a security risk. It should have security features built-in A 2017 report from smallbiz.com showed that 43% of cyber attacks target small businesses. One of the most surprising vulnerabilities? The office printer. When making your next printer purchase, ensure it has these security features built-in: Authentication options ensure that the printer will only release documents when users enter their PIN or swipe their badge at the machine. Print encryption protects your data as it moves, ensuring it is safe from creation to destination. Password protected scanning allows you to password protect your PDFs so that only authorized people can access the data they contain. Xerox’s AltaLink® and WorkCentre® EC7836/EC7856 multifunction printers come bundled with McAfee Embedded Control software so you can rest easy knowing that your MFPs and any data associated with them are safe and secure. Common Criteria Reports are available for all of Xerox’s hardware devices, so you can be assured that every device you purchase meets or exceeds industry security standards. With so many different printers and multifunction devices on the market, how do you know which one…

Business owners and managers are faced with big decisions day in, and day out. They’re also faced with big challenges. Reducing overhead. Increasing productivity. Which MFP is right for our office? Should we let our teams work remotely? That’s why it’s such a relief to find that every once in a while, a decision comes along that is easy to make – and which yields big results, with little effort. In this case, the magic word is toner. That’s right: toner. The supplies you choose are as important to the productivity of your office and the cost of running it as the equipment you choose. It’s a gospel we’ve been preaching for years, but not everyone has gotten the message. That’s why we’re talking about it again today, to give you a detailed look at just what choosing the right supplies can do for your office productivity, and for another critical element of your office output: your print performance. Often overlooked, toner is the unsung hero of the modern workplace, having undergone significant changes in recent years that has made it easier to use and also less expensive at the same time. Not many office products can say the same. Here’s how today’s office supplies can help you build a better office, starting with everyone’s favorite: Lower costs. While cost isn’t everything, it is a driving factor for many office purchases. While genuine supplies are always a better investment in the long run, most people would be surprised to know that quality toner is more affordable than ever before. Technological advances in toner design have resulted in better, less expensive, and safer materials, as well as machines that operate faster and cleaner. An excellent example is the EA (Emulsion Aggregation) toner from Xerox. Because EA toners melt at a lower temperature than other toners, EA toners adhere to paper better without building up inside the machine. Because toner build up eventually leads to a service call, EA toners make for greater dependability. And because they melt at a lower temperature, they also result in lower energy consumption, saving you an average of 20%…
