Consider the office equipment you use on a daily basis. When you first got it, it was probably fast, efficient, and powerful, capable of making anything a breeze--but if today's workflow seems sluggish in comparison, it's probably because your office equipment is out-of-date. Here are just a few convincing reasons why it's time for an upgrade.

As you set goals and make business plans for the new year, be sure to take into account your office equipment. It’s easy to get complacent when it comes to copiers and printers, accepting downtime and frustrations as standard. You don’t have to deal with problem office equipment: Make it a priority to upgrade this year.

Better Productivity

If your office equipment is old, there’s a good chance you’re experiencing poor productivity because of it. When equipment is down, when there are traffic jams and the printer, and when security is poor, there are significant effects on your office’s productivity levels. Upgrading older machines gives your office enhanced efficiency and can help everything run more smoothly.

Office Equipment Help Desk: Collate Copies

Learning all the tips and tricks when it comes to your office equipment can be tricky, but it’s worth learning how to operate your machine beyond the basics. We’re here to help you learn some of the things you can do. Today we’ll look at collating copiers.

Collating copies simply means to set up print jobs into a predetermined sequence. Most copiers will allow you to collate automatically, though some analog copiers require you to use a sorting tray.

Collated copies print in the sets you want them, rather than one page at a time. Say for example you have three pages in each packet and you need three sets. Uncollated copies will print like this:

1,1,1 2,2,2 3,3,3

You would then have to put 1,2, and 3 together yourself. It’s probably not that big of a deal in this example, but if you’re printing for a larger group, or if you have multiple pages, it can be time-consuming.

Sure, it takes a bit of time to get printer use under control, but once you gain a sense of what needs to change and get everyone on board with new policies, it’s easy to keep it going. Here are some ways you can address and correct wasteful and inefficient uses of your printers.
