Beware. Know who you are ordering MFP, copier or printer toner from.
We have written before about scams which are used to try to hoodwink accounts payable offices into paying for toner that is not needed for their business. One of our clients has just sent us the information on another of these scams.
Kyocera Canada has recently introduced a four unit series of new colour network laser printers. These new models represent the latest in a long series of constantly upgrading colour printers for the office market place which started several years ago with the FS-C1516 model.
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.

Kyocera Canada has just announced a new series of long life, super fast mono network printers ranging in speed from 42 pages per minute to 62 pages per minute. This is a long way from the early days of laser printers when 8 ppm was considered fast.
