Which printer is the best for me?

 

From laser printers and inkjet printers to all-in-one, home office and photo printers, there are different printers to suit different needs.

If you mostly print black text, a mono laser printer may be best.

If you want to be able to copy documents too, opt for an all-in-one printer. Each type of printer has its strengths.

We take into account your individual requirements such as quantities of documents printed, scanning requirements, black and white / colour, etc before recommending the most appropriate multi-function machine for the smooth running of your business and the right budget for your company.

Why should I lease?

 

Leasing is the Efficient way to enjoy the use of your equipment without having to Own it.

A finance lease is ideal way to fund your office equipment for the following reasons:

  • Rental payments are fixed for the duration of the lease. Even if interest rates rise, your rentals remain unchanged. This means that with the effect of inflation, the real cost reduces over time.
  • Payment can be structured to meet your cash flow needs – you can determine the length of your agreement and the rental payments at the outset always mindful of the useful working life of the equipment.
  • Leasing frees funds so you can sue them to develop your business more effectively. As your business grows, your requirement for working capital increases. Leasing offers an additional credit facility, which cannot be recalled providing the conditions of the agreement are met.
  • A finance lease is treated as a fixed asset on your balance sheet.
  • Leasing is far more tax efficient than owned assets, since you are not able to offset rentals against taxable profits.
  • You can add to or upgrade your equipment as your needs change – and as technology evolves. That way you enjoy the benefits of the latest advances.
  • Leasing is essential to business planning: 90% of Britain’s top companies use it to finance their equipment. With over 80% of Copy Print Services customers preferring this option.
  • In a constantly changing marketplace, leasing offers the flexibility a business needs.

Is the scanner on an all-in-one printer as good as a standalone scanner?

 

Good standalone scanners produce higher quality scans than an all-in-one, but for most people the scanner on an all-in-one printer is good enough.
