How MFPs Impact the Environment
Posted on 16th January 2020 at 09:31
MFP’s or Multifunction Printers are units that combine printer, scan, copy, and fax functionality into one single model. All quality modern machines come with the ability to operate wirelessly, allowing you to use your key office functionality through one unit.
Designed to save users time, effort and expense, MFP units are also becoming an increasingly popular option to businesses that are environmentally conscious. Energy saving options can help your teams commit to internal green incentives, drive ethical practice, help the pursuit of digital transformation, and assist a move away from a reliance on physical media.
This helps bring down your cost per page throughout your print pipeline and allows you to recycle materials when you are done, allowing your work to be green at every step of the process.
How can MFPs be of benefit to the environment?
This efficiency makes them environmentally friendly, with many models able to run with a high degree of energy efficiency. This prevents wastage and massively reduces the carbon footprint that older models can represent. Choosing to upgrade also comes at no cost to performance, with modern MFP units enjoying incredibly high print and scan resolution – allowing you to enjoy high quality colour images, crisp and fast black and white prints, and more.
From a professional standpoint, their small form factor means that they can save space in your office and prevent the purchase of multiple machines – reducing wastage and allowing your repairs to be carried out on one system. Many providers and brands offer ink and material recycling programs, allowing you to significantly cut down on the material wastage involved in a heavy print environment.
Choosing an MFP model also allows you to take advantage of a range of wireless communication technologies that can be an immense help when it comes to encouraging a ‘paperless’ office. This enables you to easily add users to your network and use cloud technology to safely scan, store and review documents through your online network. This can prove impossible with older analogue systems and can help make document sharing quick, clean and simple.
Opting for an MFP model also allows your teams to efficiently access the system, reducing daily footfall to separate units, saving physical space in your office, and running silently to save on disruptive noise pollution. Add in the fact that reliable providers offer a range of lease and rental deals and you can reduce energy wastage, encourage sustainability in a time when it truly matters most.
