When shopping for a new piece of equipment, you’ll notice many multifunctional machines still come with the ability to send and receive faxes. You can also buy separate fax modules to add on to machines that don’t have one. However, many still question the importance of a fax machine.
The truth is, if faxing was obsolete, companies wouldn’t still be producing brand new multifunctional machines with fax capabilities. A lot of people are surprised to learn faxing is still a common practice in today’s business environment. Sure, not as common as it used to be, but it’s still around,
Email has largely taken over when it comes to sending and receiving documents, which is understandable because it is faster and more convenient. Faxing is not used as much as it was in the 1980s, but you don’t want to be stuck without the ability to send faxes if and when you need to. Yes, that is a problem that could come up depending on what types of clients or customers you work with.
Believe me, I’ve seen it all, and I’ll go over a few examples for you in the next section.

When people think about ways to reduce stress at work, it would be fair to assume most never think about their copy machines.
They may think about reorganizing their work environment. Maybe they’d consider upgrading their computer or tablet. Perhaps smoothing over some interpersonal relationships would cause them less stress.
Upgrading to a modern, commercial copy machine would probably never come along in the thought process — but I’m here to tell you why it should.
I recently helped a customer reduce stress at work by recommending the perfect copier for his needs. Once we identified his previous copy machine as a source of stress, I immediately knew what would help remedy the issue.
There’s a possibility you’re in a similar situation as the customer I’m referring to, so I’m going to share his story and discuss how upgrading his copy machine helped him reduce stress.
“What is the best home office printer?”
That’s a difficult question to answer without knowing your individual circumstances. Too often customers want to buy the best machine they can get for their money instead of wanting to get the best home office printer for them personally.
It’s easy for me to show you, based on specs, what is technically the best home office printer. Although, when we get to talking about your individual needs, I bet you’ll find a less expensive machine will do everything you’re looking for.
It’s rare that a customer needs the absolute best home office printer money can buy. Unless you’re outputting massive volume on a regular basis, you can probably get by with a mid-range machine.
In this post I’ll go over several of the considerations you should make when looking for the best home office printer for your business.

When new customers come in to buy or lease a copier for the first time, they often ask if there are any dangers of photocopiers to be aware of.
For the most part, copiers are pretty safe devices. There’s not a whole lot to be worried about, but there are a few minor hazards to be aware of. In this post I’ll go over some of the dangers of photocopiers and dispel any concerns you may have.
Document finishing is one of the most important aspects of getting a commercial copy machine. It’s a feature you won’t be able to find on any kind of consumer-grade copy machine, like ones you’d buy online or from a local big box store. In this post we’re going to discuss the different types of document finishing available on professional-grade copy machines, and how they can save you both time and money.
Different Types of Document Finishing
The types of document finishing available on a commercial copy machine range from simple to elaborate. Here are the differences between each of them.
One of the questions we get asked a lot is whether or not we deal with Konica Minolta copiers. The answer to that is yes we do, to a certain extent. We used to be a dealer of Konica Minolta copiers, so we have trained service personnel on staff. The fact that we don’t sell or lease new machines doesn’t say anything bad about Konica’s new products, we simply decided to narrow our focus on a couple of specific brands only — namely Sharp and Kyocera.
When it comes to Konica Minolta copiers, we are still in the business of servicing them. If you are on a lease with us from when we used to sell and lease new Konica machines, we will of course still service your copier if needed. If you own a Konica Minolta machine that is not affiliated with us in any way, meaning it was bought or leased from another dealer, we may be able to service it on a time and materials basis or even offer a contract.
At Dean Office Solutions we sell and lease copiers and multifunctional machines made by Sharp and Kyocera. By carrying two of the top brands on the market, customers can pick and choose the models that are best for them based on how they’re going to be used. Each brand excels in different areas — for example, Kyocera has made a name for itself in making the absolute best machines in the desktop printer market.
In this article we’d like to highlight the best commercial desktop printer you can get for your money right now. Whether you’re in need of a color or black and white desktop printer, Kyocera offers the best of both worlds. We’ll start by highlighting their flagship color desktop machine, the Kyocera 6526.
These days the ability to scan documents is the most important part of a multifunctional machine. We’ve previously written articles about the benefits of digital document management, how to stay organized at work, and document management best practices. Scanning is the cornerstone of each of those articles.
In other words, we’ve written about scanning at length, but one thing we have yet to cover are the many ways in which you can scan documents. There’s more than you may think, and in this post we will go over several of the most important ways you can use the scanning functionality of your multifunctional machine.
