Did you know that 50% of businesses say they would not be able to operate without their printers? While digital documents are gaining popularity, many businesses still choose printed paper because it encourages longer attention spans and stronger working memory for their customers.Still, most businesses opt for consumer-grade printers rather than investing in a device that is meant to withstand their needs, and this can be detrimental to their productivity.
Consumer-grade printers are not equipped to print the hundreds of papers small businesses need each day. 53% of businesses own printers that break once a month which leads them to spend thousands of dollars either repairing them or purchasing brand new ones. Waiting for repairs can take days or even weeks, and can severely hinder a business’s productivity. Most consumer-grade printers also use ink cartridges which are very expensive and are often not recycled which is very bad for the environment.
Business-grade printers can solve the problems small businesses are facing. These devices are able to keep up with the needs of businesses while also saving business owners money by avoiding monthly repair fees or purchases. Many business printers also use laser toner rather than color ink which is better for the environment, prints faster, and saves money.
