Is it time to replace your old copier?

Knowing when to replace your copier might seem intuitive – after all if it will stop working when it’s done, right? Not so fast. Even if office equipment seems functional, there are other cues that it’s time for an upgrade. Here are some of the signs that it might be in your best interest to shop for a new copier. Breakdowns When office equipment like copiers and printers are overworked or approaching the end of their lifespan, they often start to break down frequently. If this is the case, your company might be spending too much time and money waiting for repair and getting it repaired. Money Pits Those breakdowns we mentioned above?

Mitigating security risks presented by your office printer

Modern multifunction printers (MFPs) are equipped with internal hard drives, just like a computer. These hard drives capture and store the information from all of the documents that they process. Oftentimes, this information is sensitive data that could be a liability should it fall into the wrong hands. As is the case with computers, your printers are vulnerable to attacks from hackers once they are networked. The Sharp Advanced Series of MFPs offer powerful device management utilities, web-based customer training and advanced, multi-layered security features. For example, to help protect employees' privacy and intellectual property, the color Advanced Series is armed with a variety of secu

Choosing a Printer for Graphic Designers
