EOFYIf you’re a small business considering a technology upgrade, the end of the financial year is the perfect time to act. It can be a simple way to save on essential purchases your business has been holding off on this year.

In addition, as part of this year’s Federal budget, business with an annual turnaround under $2 million can also claim tax deductions for the purchase of any assets under $20,000 between now and 30 June 2017. Under the scheme, eligible small businesses can claim any item used for running the business, freeing up resources to invest in technology to make your business work smarter and faster. 

Why invest in new technology this EOFY?

Productivity reports by the Australian Government show that businesses that automate processes achieve greater economies of scale than those who don’t. Smart technology means you spent less time on administrative tasks and more time on growing your business.

We believe that a big picture approach to business challenges, supported by smart technology, is the key to tackling productivity and cost challenges. Investing in a modern printing solution can transform your operations. We recently launched our SMART Series range, which incorporates a suite of software solutions to deliver all the benefits of a large device in desk-top multifunction printer, at a fraction of the cost and size.

5 considerations for buying a new printer 

 

1. What is your existing printer currently costing you? 

Typically new devices have longer life toners that are relatively less expensive to run.  By upgrading to a new device it’s probable that you’ll enjoy immediate daily cost savings through lower running costs.

2. Can the device track and report on printing costs?

You should be aiming for visibility over printing costs, usually measured in terms of cost per page, to ensure these can be easily managed.

3. Do staff spend too much time in front of the printer doing manual tasks?

Some current-release models can streamline repetitive, manual tasks by programming them into one simple button process.  By automating these processes, the risk of user error is virtually eliminated and your staff can be more productive by working smarter, not harder. 

4. Can the printer connect to mobile devices and via Wifi?

Remote and flexible working is becoming increasingly mainstream and ensuring all technology investments support this shift can enhance business efficiencies.

5. Can documents be scanned, printed and copied securely?

Tap n Go printing means that staff can send documents to the device but only release them at the printer, which means confidential documents don’t lie on the printer uncollected.
