Benefits of Choosing Canon Photocopiers
Canon takes great pride in their reputation and high level of customer service, ensuring that their personalised customer protection policies aim to protect you, the customer, at all times. Here are some of the benefits of choosing Canon:
- Free replacement copier within the first 3 years should your machine fail.
- A guaranteed response within 4 working hours or penalties paid.
- Free loan machine should your model be sent off for repair.
- A full refund within the first 6 months if you are not entirely convinced that they are the best copier dealers in the business.
Purchase vs Lease
The other decision you will have to make is how you will acquire your photocopier, meaning as a purchase or lease, which will also require you to determine what capabilities you will need for your business. You should first consider whether you will require colour or photo printing, faxing/ scanning/ emailing, image editing and automatic binding, among a host of other functionalities that Canon has available.
Some additional things that will determine the size and functions of your printer will include the amount of copies you will produce each month, the speed of your copier, the size of paper you require, and of course how much you are going to invest in printing in the long term.
Canon supplies a wide range of photocopiers in the UK at various price points. Prices start at around £300 and can go up to £10,000+ for really high-end models. Generally speaking. the more features you get the more expensive your copier will be.
Speaking to a knowledgeable Canon representative should equip you with everything you need to know before making the "purchase or lease" decision. Of course, there is always the option to purchase second hand or reconditioned models, however many businesses feel that leasing is the smart choice, with the largest amount of user benefits. Leasing should also allow you the best possible deals on toner cartridges and paper supplies.
Canon Photocopier Models
Canon makes photocopier models for a range of different office sizes and needs, from discreet black and white models, to high-tech mammoths that require a separate printing room. Choosing the right photocopier model for your office will allow you to keep your running costs and carbon footprint as low as possible. Below is an overview of each type according to office size.
Small Office and Personal Photocopiers
Smaller businesses outside of the printing industry will only require basic copying in black and white, and perhaps invoice printing. Most Canon models for small businesses, such as the Canon imageRUNNER series, will include faxing, scanning and printing so that you can perform a number of basic functions while saving space and money. They are also quite discreet so that you can save space while diminishing your carbon footprint.
Mid-sized offices will require more features and time-saving functions to support a fast-paced environment. If you are running a business above the startup stage, you will most likely require a printer with several different page sizes, high resolution colour capability, and a high copy speed.
The Canon RUNNER ADVANCE series is an obvious choice, however there are other models that are worth looking into as well. Many of these mid-size models come with touchscreens, and advanced document sharing as well. It is a good idea to take a moment to scroll through which photocopiers would suit your business’ needs the best.
Large Offices and Professional Printers
Canon also offers a range of high-end photocopiers that are ideal for the larger busier office, and come with all the bells and whistles that a professional printing room may need. You will usually need to reserve more space for these printers; a separate room is ideal since they can be quite noisy and cumbersome.
The reasons for choosing these models include high-grade colour printing, various size paper use, and maximum speed for busy offices. They will also hold a lot more paper trays and offer such added features as stapling, binding and hole punching.
