One of the basic historical tools for business promotion has long been the colour print glossy brochure.

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.
One of the key areas of work that our clients count on us to perform is to right size and advise them on the network print devices they need for their businesses. The trust us to understand their use and figure out the device and other tools that best fit their unique situations.
