Oldies But Not So Goodies – 13 Reasons to Update Those Old Copiers Holding Your Business Back

By Dave Quint | Jun 19, 2018 8:06:00 AM

Every other year or so we've gotten used to the release of the next new batch of amazing phones.

People line up around the block or camp overnight for a chance to be the first to get their hands on one. Sometimes the changes and upgrades have been revolutionary; more often they're evolutionary.

Either way, we know that we'll be able to do more with the new phones – even if we end up just watching cat videos on a slightly larger and better screen. 

While not as exciting for the wider world, copier manufacturers are also constantly innovating and improving their products.

It might not be as exciting as getting a brand new phone, but investing in new office equipment can help your office get more done. There is a time and a place for “if it's not broke, don't fix it.” However, if you've had the same copier for a decade (or even a few years); considering an upgrade isn't a bad idea.

Here are 13 benefits from updating older office equipment.

By Lane Lebahn | Jun 14, 2018 8:30:00 AM

We've written many times about how document management can save you time retrieving documents (along with many other benefits).

“Of course we'd say that – you provide Laserfiche document management!” I'm sure many of you might think.

Sheila Steffen, City Clerk for Dunkerton, Iowa, shared with us how document management from Laserfiche has made her workday as a city clerk easier.

One idea she kept coming back to was how amazing the simple ability to quickly find the information you're looking for can make your life easier.

As Sheila said, “Oh my gosh, I can find this immediately!”

A huge thank you to Sheila for taking the time to speak with us.

Manage Your Business and Your Time, Not Your Documents – Copiers, Scanning, and Workflows

By Dave Quint | Jun 12, 2018 1:50:35 PM

We all want more time.

We aren't getting it.

There are 168 hours (10,080 minutes) in every week. That's all that any of us get.

Spending any of those minutes rummaging through filing cabinets or off-site storage as you attempt to find the right document is a waste of those minutes.

The benefits of digitizing documents and transforming your business are many (read about those benefits in the blog links at the end of this post). However, sometimes it's easier to see an example rather than just reading about “this is good for you.”

The following is an example of using your copiers to digitize paper and automate workflows in action.

The following is based on real interactions and implementations with our clients.

Get Rid of Extra Copiers and Printers – For The Best Productivity and Cost Savings, You Need the "Just Right" Mix

By Dave Quint | May 22, 2018 11:29:00 AM

Every office needs the “Goldilocks” solution for their copiers and printers – not too many, but not too few.

With too many copiers and printers, you're paying for capacity you don't need or use (little known fact – underused copiers have maintenance issues too). Too few devices and staff will experience productivity loss as they wait in line at the copier or have documents lost in print queues or held up in increasingly frequent paper jams.

Like Goldilocks' porridge and bed, your mix of copiers and printers should be just right!

With a little bit of planning and foresight, every company can rightsize their print fleet to only pay for exactly what's needed.
