Multitasking is an absolute necessity for businesses that want to keep up with the pace of business today… though perhaps not in the way you think! While humans aren’t very good at multitasking, multifunction printers (MFPs) on the other hand are up for the challenge. MFPs combine several different office technologies into a single machine with a small footprint: print, copy, scan, fax, and more. These machines are smaller, faster, and more powerful than ever—and they feature technology to keep your business performing efficiently and effectively.

? MFPs Reduce Costs — MFPs offer savings over multiple individual machines. You’ll only need to purchase (or lease), maintain, and stock one device. Using a single machine also reduces your office equipment energy expenses.
? MFPs are More Convenient — Managing a single piece of equipment is just simpler than juggling multiple machines. Different machines can vary in their service, maintenance, toner, and driver/software needs. However, management and inventory are straightforward when you’re working with one device, one vendor, and one manufacturer.
? MFPs Save Space — A major draw of MFPs is their relatively small footprint: these devices take up less space than multiple single-function machines. Office space is precious and multiple devices and cords just add to the clutter and chaos. Compact MFPs are also available, designed to fit on a desk or workstation.
? MFPs Improve Workflows — With one destination for multiple functions, MFPs can streamline print- and document-related workflows. Scanning, faxing, printing, and copying can all be done from a single location. With a single network-connected multifunction device, everyone in the office can have access to the technology they need.
? MFPs Increase Your Capabilities — Purchasing specialized, single-function equipment for limited use can be hard to justify, but an MFP lets you integrate even infrequently-used functions at a reasonable cost. From faxing and copying to folding and stuffing, an MFP is an efficient way to provide your office a variety of tools.
? MFPs Support Sustainability — ENERGY STAR -certified MFPs are an ideal choice for the green office. Their sleep modes and auto-off functions save power and reduce carbon emissions, while the single machine reduces raw material needs and consumables waste.

Multifunction printers are high-performing devices that get the job done while taking up a fraction of the space of several single-function machines. Contact Golden Gate Office Solutions to find an MFP that will stand out in your office.
