I have observed over the past fifteen years that the daily life of a copier technician has undergone a significant change. These critical customer support people have seen more change in their careers than in most industries. In the copier/mfp dealership I have been involved with there is a team of very experienced and long serving technical experts who daily respond to clients and solve their issues.

One challenge that is often not met by small sheet fed scanners is the ability to capture images from books and magazines or other bound materials. This new unit from Fujitsu targets just this issue (for video and other reviews please scroll down).
Storing data from your I.T. network is something that is often just taken for granted. After all, what is the purpose of the systems we all use at work? Is it not to produce and manage information that is constantly flowing between internal and external contacts. Whether it is customer data, supplier data, marketing material, product reference material or internal employee data this material is the substance of what makes a business tick and run smoothly.
One of the things that we are noting with clients who have moved to new computer hardware running Windows 8 is they are surprised to find out that there are no drivers available for accessories they already own. They have assumed that if their printer, scanner, fax or other peripheral has worked with Windows XP, Vista or 7 they will be able to hook it up with Windows 8 and continue its use.
Kyocera Document Solutions Canada has announced the release of upgraded versions of the popular TASKalfa series of mono and colour MFPs.
Sometimes I find that clients and potential clients don't always appreciate how critical document flows are to their businesses. Often printing documents and handling of electronic documents just become part of the background noise in busy offices.
Colour printers and mfp devices are much more common in offices. I find that we are placing as many colour capable devices as mono only especially in offices with only one print device. The reasons are fairly obvious since we live in a colour world and most companies need to be able to produce at least some of their output with colour features.
There are three common ways that companies acquire print devices like copiers and mfps. You can simply purchase what you need. This seems the simplest but for equipment worth more than about $2000 it is not the most common. Second, you can lease the device for a fixed term lease. This is the most common way that office print equipment is acquired. In our practice at least 85 percent of the equipment is placed on a lease for clients.
