Investing in an MFP: What are Your Options?


Every office needs a printer, copier, scanner and faxing machine. Really though - four devices? Well, no. Luckily, the multifunction printer (MFP) is the answer to all these needs in one streamlined, space-saving device.

But what if you're not ready to buy, or the investment doesn't make sense for your business long-term? There are great options to lease an MFP as well. Below, we'll discuss which is better for you - leasing or buying.

MFP Selection and Purchasing

Pick Your Device

First, you need to choose the product that you are interested in by understanding the needs of your office and the new features available.

An experienced office technology company like Newcastle Business Technology Group can walk you through various products that may fit your needs.

Evaluate Cost

Research costs of supplies, repair, and eventual upgrades. Also, have a good understanding of the volume of output that you need and also if your office always needs the latest technology, or if you can wait a little longer for updates.

Know Your Options for Purchase

Again, going over this with your office technology team will be helpful. Options include leasing or buying equipment, which has benefits both ways. Leasing means you can reconsider at the end of the contract, and buying means that you don't have to worry about the lease agreement during the term.

Lease or Buy?

The team at Newcastle Business Technology Group can help you identify your needs, analyse use, and understand if leasing or buying is the best option for you.
