Modern multifunction printers (MFPs) have revolutionized the way that offices share and save documents. The problem is, most businesses never take full advantage of the device they have invested in. Most companies get minimal productivity increases because they only see their MFP as a faster printer.
There are many incredible ways that your MFP can increase productivity, here are a few examples:
1. Print Control
You can take control of your office printing by setting up specific guidelines around what functions can be accessed on your MFP. Save money by controlling the different functions available to users, so they print only what you have given access to them to do.
2. Follow Me Printing
Users in your office can print from any device or workstation, and then release the job to print once they have arrived at the MFP. This feature improves security because an employee can’t print from their desk and leave the job on the tray; they must physically start the job.
3. Reduce Paper Usage
Through a modern MFP, users can Scan to Email or Scan to Save on your cloud or local storage network. Creating digital documents reduces the amount of paper that flows through your office and saves space from bulky filing cabinets.
4. Create Office Workflows
Workflows are one of the most useful advancements with MFPs. They allow users to create a direct line of communication to another user or department to share documents through quickly.
5. Improved Document Security
MFPs are more equipped than ever to handle your business’ documents and information. There are an abundance of security features that encrypt data and restrict physical access to your MFP from unauthorized users. User authentication systems are a popular feature, which requires employees to enter a passcode, a keycard, or biometrics to gain access to an MFP.
