Wondering If It’s Time to Upgrade Your Copier? Here Are the Signs!

7 Jun 2018

When it comes to copiers and print equipment, many small businesses in the Hamilton and Niagara area are using some pretty old technology. Often avoiding an upgrade because of the cost, or an “if it’s not broke, don’t fix it” frame of mind. Your copier is the hub of your print environment; a multifunction device where printing copying, scanning and faxing is accomplished daily. If you’re using older technology, here are a few signs it may be time for an upgrade!

Business Goals

Are your copiers helping you achieve your goals, or are they holding you back? If your team is spending a lot of time waiting for the copier, it might be time for an upgrade. Today’s technology is more efficient, cheaper to operate and offers many options to improve productivity.

Unnecessary Spending 

A new machine can actually save you money! New technology uses much less energy and requires less maintenance. Another plus is quality. New machines offer such high quality output you can take jobs back in house, saving you time and money!

Aging Machines 

Older machines produce lower quality copies, use more energy and require more frequent repairs. Once a machine reaches the ten year mark, the total cost of ownership outweighs the cost of a new feature rich, efficient one.

Repeated Repairs 

If you know your copier repair guy be name, it’s time to upgrade! Although repairs can keep an aging machine functioning, the hassle and cost can be taking a financial toll and lower your team’s morale. It mght be time to take the money your spending and put it towards an upgrade!


If your copier is accessible through your network it is vulnerable to breach. Security is an issue for every business today and office copiers are particularly vulnerable if not protected. New machines offer the highest levels of security built into the operating system and can not only protect your data from unauthorized access, but can monitor and guard against unauthorized use of the machine.

There’s an App for That

With Xerox’s iSeries line of products users can access an online app studio offering free apps that can help improve workflows by leveraging the cloud for easy access and storage of scanned documents.

A new copier can save you money and offer better data protection. By seeing what your current copier is actually costing your business, you can more realistically gauge the cost benefits of new technology. It will not only save money, but can increase productivity and help you to meet your business goals.
