1. How much should I expect to pay for a new machine? Back to the top > >
It all depends on what your business needs. You can spend in the low hundred or over a thousand depending on what features you need. If you find that you are not sure what your print environment is then it’s a good idea to have an office assessment done to determine your office’s workload. Machines can also come with a variety of features such as copy, print, fax, and scan. Contact us today and together we can provide a solution to identify your business needs for a cost-effective print environment.

 

 

2. What is the difference between copy machines speed?  Back to the top > >
Copier speeds are sorted by six segments:
Segment 1 – 11-20 ppm
Segment 2 – 21-30 ppm
Segment 3 – 31-40 ppm
Segment 4 – 41-69 ppm
Segment 5 – 70-90 ppm
Segment 6 – 91+ ppm
The cost of the machine will be higher depending on the speed of your desired copy machine. This all depends on what your business needs. Most small to medium sized businesses find that Segment 2-4 meet their workload.

 

 

3. What are "multifunction devices"? Is there a difference between them and a regular copier/printer?  Back to the top > >
Multifunction devices have many more features than your average copier or printer. Multifunction printers (MFPs) have copy, print, fax, and scan capabilities as well as increased ppm and functionality.
However, now copiers and printers have more functions available. It all depends on your office and print environment to determine which option would be good for you.

 

 

4. I mostly print in black and white but occasionally would like to make color copies, what should I do? Back to the top > >
Depending on how much you want to print in color will determine whether you should buy a color printer or stick to a black and white machine. There are options for particular machines that can switch to color for specific copy or print jobs. A machine with these capabilities may be best for your business if you use very little color. If you think your business will eventually increase in color consumption, a color machine can be tailored for cost-effectiveness.

 

 

5. We have five people in our office and don’t make a ton of copies, what would our best options be? Back to the top > >
Black and White printers are relatively inexpensive but still pack a punch for those days when you have a high workload. Through an office assessment, we can find out exactly what your print environment looks like and find a solution from there. If you do very little copying/printing, leasing may be a better alternative for you and your employees.

 

 

6. What are the most important things I need to know about finding a copier/printer/MFP? Back to the top > >
Finding office equipment for your business doesn’t have to be an arduous task. Champion Business Solutions is here to help you through everything you need to know. Service contracts are a big part of finding a machine. The fine print can be daunting but our staff will go through everything with you so you can rest assured that you know what to expect. Always ask questions if you have any concerns regarding your machine. We are dedicated to you and your business’s success.
We always recommend an Office Assessment for your office to determine what your print environment looks like. An Office Assessment is a great inside look into your business where you can identify how you print, what you print, and identify problem areas and explore solutions.

 

 

7. What features should I consider for my device? Back to the top > >
Depending on the make and model you choose, you can explore the luxury of options. Machines can have various paper tray sizes, capacities, sorting and finishing options ranging from simple (multiple bins and stapled copies) to bin-free sorting (documents set at right angles to separate them) and folding, three-hole-punches and much more! You can also choose different feature such as printing, faxing, scanning, image editing, and more.
