For as long as there have been products for sale, there has been the trap of becoming so consumed with how much something costs to acquire, versus how much that same thing costs in order to own it and operate it over a prolonged period of time. For example, if your local car dealership had a car available for sale at a price so low that it seemed like an incredible bargain, but the car ended up costing you an arm and a leg in unforeseen future repairs and other maintenance expenses, how trulycheap was it? How much of a bargain was it, really?
Cheapest Not Always Least Expensive
Apply the same dilemma to your workplace and the products they use there. If you buy cheap pens for half the price of higher-quality pens that last twice as long, how much are you really saving? In other words, the cheapest option may not always be the cheapest option, over time, regardless of what it is you’re comparing. The same goes for your print and copy products, as well.
Assess Your Expenses
Because every multifunction printer is not only different (laser vs. inkjet), but also used differently, you’ll need to assess who’s using it and for what purpose. Add to the equation the cost to supply it and the frequency with which it requires maintenance, and it’s easy to see how quickly one can get inundated by the potential cost of upkeep and any other circumstances that can affect your company’s bottom line. If there’s one thing that plays out, it’s that each and every workplace, its needs, goals, and the tools and equipment it uses to meet and achieve them varies incalculably. The list of criteria one must consider in order to make a wise decision that not only saves money, but increases productivity, is a long one.
