Is It Time to Upgrade Your Office Printers?


Everyone knows the frustration of fighting with a printer that just won’t work. If this is a common occurrence in your office, it might be time to upgrade the printers. We all know the importance of saving money and hanging on to our equipment and supplies for as long as possible. But eventually, you have to replace things. So is it time to get a new printer for your office?  

Here’s what to look for when you’re considering upgrading your office printers.


Age and Performance

Technology changes faster and faster, and printers become obsolete sooner than you expect. If your printer is several years old, it’s time to start thinking about getting a new one. Older printers are sometimes incompatible with newer computers or don’t work with certain features, such as cloud printing. In time, the printer’s performance will also start to decline. The most common problems are lower quality prints and taking a long time to print.  

Repair Costs

For newer printers, it usually makes more sense to repair a printer rather than replace it. In time, however, the costs of repairing a printer become more expensive. Once repairing your printer is more expensive than buying a new time, it’s time to replace it. New printers will also have new features and better printing capabilities that will improve your office’s productivity and save you time, money, and frustration.  

Needs and Technology

Older printers lack the features that many of us have come to rely on. Mobile printing and cloud-based printing are commonplace now, but some printers manufactured even only a few years ago may not have these features. Printing needs also change, so you need a printer that meets your needs. If you need to print in color or at higher volumes, you may have to replace your printer to meet your needs.
