Everyone has a top 5 reasons why list. Why? Well, first of all everyone loves reading them and agreeing or disagreeing, or even better just to give themselves the pat on the back for thinking like everyone else. Just remember “Your assumptions are your windows on the world. Scrub them off every once in a while, or the light won’t come in.”
― Isaac Asimov
That’s why we have written this top 5 reasons to buy a copier from us…again. Why? Because no two companies share the same exact scheme when it comes to managed printing, copier needs, internet safety or most especially ..budget.
Most Important Reason
Truth be known, there are numerous reasons to buy a copier from any one specific copier manufacturer or vendor.
The first is reliability, no matter from whom you buy or lease your new copier from, if it breaks down or needs constant trivial repairs, even if it’s under warranty…this is a productivity waster. Not only that, you’ll always have the feeling you bought a lemon, and been consistently frustrated. The best advice we can give is view the numerous copier review websites and take an average of the top 5 rated machines and just start there. That way from the beginning “buying a lemon” should be tossed out the window.
Once you have your top 5 list, call multiple reps and vendors in your area, and find which companys work with this top 5 list. Here’s the caveat…numerous vendors work with multiple brands of copiers. If this is the case, it may be best not to consider these vendors as a viable resource. Why? It makes sense to consider the fact that this vendor that represents multiple machines, just wants to sell a machine and has no brand allegiance that they may have stock in.
Once you have your 5 vendors selected, find which will actually come out to visit on your schedule as soon as possible. Why? If their sales reps can’t make it out to make a sale of a costly office product, how quick will the service guy make it out to replace $6 toner.
Lastly (for today), price. Do not use price as your only consideration for your purchase, what you spend today, may ultimately save you 5 x’s as much later by way of productivity and down time.
Our best advice of course is go with whomever and whichever machine makes you feel confident about the productivity your new machine will give you.
