The Advantages of Leasing Your Copiers and Printers
Copiers and printers are essential business tools, even when organizations rely heavily on electronic document management for day-to-day records processing. Laser printers are mission-critical, providing in-house printing for everything from internal documents to long print runs of customer-facing brochures, mass mailings, invoices, and proposals. And multifunction copiers provide critical access to scanning and document capture solutions.
Lease or Purchase?
When you’re ready to upgrade the copiers and printers in your office, one of the decisions you’ll need to make early on is whether to purchase or lease your equipment. For many organizations, leasing is the preferred method. Here’s a look at the considerations.
- Financial flexibility — Leasing provides businesses with more options than purchasing. A purchase may tie up operating capital or credit lines, and a substantial down payment may be a part of the contract. Leasing usually doesn’t require a down payment or force companies to tap into credit lines or funds earmarked for core business initiatives. And with typical lease options that run from 24 to 48 months, a lease agreement allows companies to choose the plan that works best for their budget.
- Faster upgrades — Copiers and printers use sophisticated technologies that work in tandem with your document management systems, mobile devices, computers, and software platforms. Leasing allows your organization to stay on top of emerging technologies with streamlined leasing options when it’s time to upgrade your equipment.
