Which type of printer does your office need?

Technology has invaded every facet of modern human life. People now mostly use digital devices to store and read documents. This makes everyone wonder about the relevance of printers in offices.

Is printing paper still relevant?

Printers and printing paper documents are still important in the workplace. Some of the reasons you may need it are:

Customer satisfaction

Some customers may prefer printed documents over digital ones. So, having a printer at your office is always good to cater to these customers.

Technology issues

Even if you have an IT support cell in your office, sometimes unforeseen issues with your computer or network can result in the loss of critical data. Having a hard copy of important documents can be helpful in these times.

They are tangible

Physical documents can help people stay focused during important meetings, and the attendees can highlight important points or make notes on them as well. Physical documents also give the information a more authentic appearance.

Determining your office needs

After you have invested in your printer, it is essential to determine where to place it to get maximum productivity. Your specific office needs play a vital part in the placement and usage of a printer.

Determining printer location 

A printer should be placed in such a way that it is protected from natural elements. Using wireless printers will eliminate a lot of wires and prevent accidental tripping. It should also be placed so that changing or removing cartridges is easy.

Departmental needs

The printer should be placed according to how many departments need printers close to their workstations. Some departments, like accounts, may need to print more documents compared to the IT services department.

Employee needs

The printer should be placed according to how many employees may need to print documents during a workday. For example, employees in charge of organizing meetings or accountants may need to print physical copies more than others.

Nature of your business

Some businesses, like logistics or retail companies, may need to print invoices for their clients. Some businesses send paper mail to their clients who do not have access to email. Many also send marketing pamphlets to their target customers. If your business regularly performs these activities, a printer is beneficial.


Though technology has made it possible to keep large documents with us anywhere we go, printing is still relevant, especially for businesses. Buying a good printer to suit your office needs is an excellent investment you can make for your business.

Massimo DeRocchis

My life has been surrounded with computers since I was a child, from my first job as a Computer Assembly Assistant to the current ownership of Priority Networks, a dental focused networking company. Starting with an Apple computer connecting to other networks when I was only 13 years old, I quickly knew this passion would lead to bigger ventures. As the internet started to evolve, I immediately worked for an Internet Service Provider (ISP). This gave me insight to the power of worldwide internet communications and the capabilities of sharing data across multiple networks simultaneously. The dedication towards this field has given me the advantage of understanding new technologies and grasping complicated issues quickly from software, hardware, networking, security, management and much more. As a Computer Network Manager for Tesma International, a division of Magna International, I gained the experience of becoming a qualified NAI Network Sniffer, EDI Communications Specialist, Head Securities Manager, MRP Manufacturing Integration Manager, and received several enhanced managerial and technological training courses. Moving forward to today, I apply all my knowledge, training and years of solid network experience to deliver the very best support to all my customers at Priority Networks.
