Copier Machine Buyers Guide

By: First Class Business Solutions

1. What is my budget?

Copier speed is measured in copies per minute (CPM, also known as pages per minute or PPM). Copiers can produce from four to over 100 copies per minute. The slowest machines begin at around ?700 and the fastest, digitally connected, multifunctional machines can cost over ?100,000. Copiers that cost more than a couple thousand pounds are most often rented or leased, but they can also be bought outright. Leases for photocopiers typically extend for three to five years.

2. Hidden Costs?

The capital cost of printers may be relatively inexpensive but the cost of Consumables, Maintenance plays an important part in budgetary decisions. Research shows that 40% to 45% of total cost of ownership goes toward consumables and servicing and 55% to 60% is down to manageability and reliability.

3. What's your copy and print volume?

It’s always worth assessing your current usage by conducting a quick print audit of average pages printed per month, A4 or A3 requirements, Black & white usage and

Colour usage. Take a long-term view and consider the potential growth of your company.

4. Colour and Mono?

Colour is undoubtedly where the future lies. Although the manufactures are obviously keen to push colour copiers, as it increases their margins on consumables, remember the best business MFP’s do offer mono and colour simultaneously. It’s also possible to disable the colour on the MFP’s if you do not need colour now but want it in the future.
