Be prudent in deciding what features you truly need for your Richmond copier to reduce your overall costs. Purchasing a copier with extra features you do not need wastes money. For example, many people choose to purchase a copier with tabloid capability because they think they might need it at some point in the future. However, a copier without tabloid capability that can do 8.5″ by 14″ prints may cost around $1,499, whereas a similar one with tabloid capability can cost $4,000 to $8,000.
A scanner feature with your Richmond copier offers a useful accessory by allowing you to do electronic filing. While the scanner feature increases your upfront costs with the copier, you will save money in the long term thanks to the benefits of electronic filing. For example, you can scan invoices and receipts, save on printing costs by avoiding making a printed copy, and you can easily distribute the electronic copy to others in your company for easy access.
