The best printer is the one you don't notice

Printers have played a vital role in offices for years, efficiently managing paperwork and handling administrative tasks with ease.

But have you ever stopped to think about the printer itself?

Most of us don't give this piece of equipment a second thought once we've hit the "Print" button, but it's essential that printers are optimised to become part of your workflow. Otherwise, these devices can cause delays and frustration.

In this blog post, we'll explore why the best printer is the one you don't notice, especially in office environments where efficiency is key.

The importance of a smooth printing experience

A printer or multi-function printer can easily become a thorn in the side of office workers. The biggest issue is when you need to print a document, and the printer isn't working. This can be a real productivity killer, causing delays and a frustrating experience for employees.

For this reason, a printer that's noticed is not necessarily a good thing. The best type of printer is the one that operates smoothly and without error. This will bring confidence and efficiency in your workflow.

Essentially, there are two situations at work when you notice your printer:

  • When you're using it
  • When it's not working

In the office, we have daily routines to prioritise our work and workflow systems to meet our deadlines; the hyper-organised will even allow time for the unexpected on each task or project.

The printer you notice the most is the one that’s a disruption to your routines and workflows because it’s not working for one reason or another; you then have to invest time in fixing it, time in which could have gone into hitting that deadline.

Choosing the right printer

The printer you choose should be able to handle the volume of documents your office produces each day. There's nothing more frustrating than having to wait for a slow printer to churn out documents. This can be a real drain on productivity, particularly in a busy office where time is precious.

Look for a printer that can cope with your print demands and that prints documents quickly without sacrificing quality.

Another factor to consider is the type of printer that's best suited for your needs.

There are several different types of printers available, including inkjet, colour laser, and mono laser.

Consider what your office requires in terms of printing speed, paper handling, and colour quality, and find a printer that fits those needs. A high-quality printer means your employees will spend less time troubleshooting issues and more time working on the projects that matter.

Why reliability is a crucial consideration

The printer you notice the least is the one that seamlessly integrates into your workflow, effortlessly functioning when you need it the most. 

Looking for dependable printers can be difficult, often because dependability and reliability are hard to measure. The best sources for reference to make the most informed decision are from third-party testing and reviews by professionals who have assessed the features and stress tested the device.
