Sometimes we don’t understand the value of our office equipment until it stops working. Dealing with a broken copier in the middle of a deadline is the worst case scenario. The good news is that regular maintenance is recommended and for these four good reasons.
1. Avoid Breakdowns
The number one reason to maintain your copier regularly is to prevent costly downtime. Just like other machines, copiers experience wear and tear. If you are using the copier at a high-volume, you are even more prone to mechanisms malfunctioning. If you don’t pay attention to the inner-workings of your equipment, you will experience a breakdown.
2. Unproductive Employees
When a copier is out of service that can be your work production at a standstill. If employees are waiting to use a copier to finish a project they may not be able to fill the downtime with other activities. Worse yet they may have to send the work to an offsite company to make the copies, costing you twice the money.
3. Improve Performance
When you complete routine maintenance on a copier, you may find that nothing was wrong. That doesn’t mean the service was for naught though. Keeping copiers clean and well running can improve their performance even if nothing was wrong. You can prevent smudges and paper-jams by keeping cleaned equipment.
4. Save Money
It doesn’t cost any money to perform regular maintenance on copiers. Calling for a technician, on the other hand, will put a dent in your budget. Not only will you have to pay for new parts if needed but there will be the cost of labor. It’s better just to take preventative measures.
Maintaining your copier can take time out of your day, but it’s more affordable than repair costs from negligence. To learn more about taking care of your copier, call us today!
