Cartridge World advises on printer replacement

September 3, 2018

The company’s latest blog details the “signs to watch for” to know when the time has come to replace and upgrade your print devices.

“If you’re working with outdated print technology,” the blog begins, “you could be missing out on the cost-cutting, productivity-boosting power new printers off,” adding that older printers may not offer the range of security features that come as standard today.

Cartridge World lists several red flags that will let you know when it’s time to invest in a new printer. The first of these is that “print costs have gone up significantly”, with the blog reminding readers that “there are ways to cut costs without reducing print output.”

Secondly, a lack of required security features should point towards the need for a replacement. The blog cites data from last year showing that 43 percent of cyberattacks target small businesses, with unprotected office printers a major vulnerability. Examples of the features that you might be missing if you haven’t upgraded include PIN authentication, print encryption, and password protected scanning.

Another telltale sign that it’s time to upgrade is that your printer isn’t improving your workflows or productivity, with the blog specifically stating that “the right device should streamline workflows and boost productivity,” giving the example of new devices that utilise app-based technology to make printing “fast and easy.”

Other giveaways that it might be time to invest in something new is if your current printer doesn’t offer cloud compatibility or mobile print, says Cartridge World, arguing that “to be productive today means that your team needs access to your print environment from anywhere, anytime, on any device.”

Finally, the blog asserts that your printer must be scalable, claiming that “as your business grows, your printer should grow with it,” and that features like remote scanning and other mobile tools will do wonders for your business.
