Information technology changes rapidly. That includes copy machines. If you still only think of your copier as a “paper in, paper out” device, then you’re missing out on business improvements many of our customers enjoy. Thirty years ago, copiers essentially used heat to fuse toner to paper to make copies. Thirty years ago schools used photocopiers to share materials with students, copy newsletters, permission slips, and homework packets. Law firms copied case materials to file with the courts. Finance departments everywhere printed and moved invoices and accounts payable documents physically through the office for approval. Today, schools are allowing students to do homework online (though permission slips are still on paper!). Court cases can be filed electronically. Your copier can scan an invoice and launch an accounts payable workflow to digitally route the document through its approval process. Times have changed. As businesses moved away from paper to digital documents, so did copiers. Today, digital photocopiers are fully networked and can become productivity hubs in your office. Here are six productivity boosts you probably don’t know about your copier.
