Top tips for choosing a photocopier

Published on 4 Jan 2019 at 09:34 by Ray Devlin

It’s important to purchase quality copier machines that meet your offices’ requirements.

To help you with the decision, here are some tips:

Volume of Print

One of the most crucial factors to consider is an obvious one: how much the copier will be used. Work out the number of pages per month that will be printed and what the copier will be mostly used for. This will help decide whether you’ll need a black and white or coloured copier, size of its capacity tray and how large the copier will be.

Scanning Features

A multi-functional device is the preferred platform for a quality scanner since the printer can directly send the scan to your email or computer. This is a great feature especially for those in an office setting. Should you need a scanning feature for your everyday undertakings, ensuring this feature is built-in should be your top priority.

Speed

Speed relates to the number of copies that can be copied in one sitting. So, consider how much the machine is used per day. Will you use the copier to print brochures, flyers or manuals? Before buying a photocopier, knowing what you need regarding copy speed is important to make sure that the unit you go for will be sufficient for your operations.

Multi-functionality

Another thing to consider is whether a multifunctional copier will be a good option. These can incorporate faxing, scanning, printing and copying all in one copier and can save lots of space if you need a copier for a small office, in addition to saving a considerable amount of money compared to running each of these devices separately.

Purchasing Options

When purchasing a copier, find out the payment options available. Is it better to Lease, Rent or Purchase? Monitoring the transaction will be important in the future when you’ve warranty issues or customer service questions.

Price

You want to find high value when you search through photocopying machines. Some machines are low-priced but may be costly to run and maintain. Other machines are more expensive but cost a lot less to run and maintain over the period of the machine’s lifetime.

Additional Features and Advantages

As stated earlier, there’re many new features added to copiers that aren’t necessary to have, but make the unit appear fancier and of higher quality. There are extra functionalities that can enhance your printing experiences, for example accessibility programs, document editing and automated document workflow solutions. Accessibility programs allow multifunctional devices, scanners, printer and copiers to be controlled by a mobile device.

Employ Ability Galway 


"When you met with us initially we knew we needed to source a laser printer but we were unsure which type or model might suit us. We were very grateful that you helped us make that decision, and took the time to understand the needs of our organisation, and based on that, advise us on the correct size and type of printer.

Getting a trial period without commitment to buy was great, and what really impressed us all was the amount of printing that we got out of the cartridges. The quality of the print was excellent and the printer cartridges are easily replaceable even for any non IT inclined individual!

We have also found that the Cantec staff have been very helpful and the after sales service which is most important has been excellent. We would be delighted torecommend Cantec (Galway) to other organisations and businesses".

Local Employment Service Network

I have been a customer of Cantec (Galway) for more than twenty years first with the Galway Centre for the Unemployed and now the Local Employment Service and they stand out as a supplier.

They have taken the time to know the organisation I work for; they understand our needs and our financial situation and always come up with a solution that takes both of these facts into account.   They have a very ‘can do’ attitude. I truly feel I have never spent an unnecessary cent on their products and services over the years.

Aidan’s knowledge of his business is encyclopaedic and sometimes overwhelming but this has only ever worked to our advantage.   His good humour spills over into the service team who are prompt, efficient and timely.

I am very happy to recommend Cantec.

"I first encountered Cantec when our office photocopier started to give us trouble. We were out of maintenance contract with our previous supplier so wanted to get someone local that we could rely on at short notice. Cantec was this company. From the initial meeting they were honest about our photocopying needs and what we needed. It wasn't just about selling a machine but selling something that we needed and would work for our needs.

We have our new photocopier for 6 months now and we couldn't be happier with its performance.

The employees in Cantec are also so helpful, no matter the question.

I couldn't recommend them highly enough and know we will be customers of Cantec for many years to come." - Fiona Collins. 

Tobin Consulting Engineers

"We recently used 2 No. Ineo 454e printers/photocopiers/scanners which had been on short-term rental from Cantec for the delivery of a specific project. It was a very pressurized environment for us to deliver this project and Bruno Dias was appointed by Cantec to ensure that both machines worked to their optimum and that all consumables were available at all times. This included toners, paper supplies etc.

Bruno attended at the site early each morning and late each evening. He checked the machines, consumables and paper stock on each occasion. When an issue did arise with one of the machines, he took immediate remedial action and had the problem resolved in a very short space of time.

He was highly efficient, courteous and at all times most accommodating, to the point of making his mobile number available if we had any concerns, outside of office hours.

" - Brendan Rudden - Project Engineer.
