Increase Office Equipment Efficiency and Lifespan

When you make the investment in office equipment, you don't want to have to deal with common breakdowns and other issues. There are a few key things you can do to elongate the lifespan of your copiers and printers while also making sure that you have the right equipment for your business.

Update Features and Equipment

First of all, if you continuously need maintenance and have other issues with your office equipment, you might want to evaluate upgrading it entirely. Constant breakdowns, issues, endless maintenance, and lacking technologies needed in today's workplace are all reasons to talk to your vendor partner about possibly upgrading your machine for better functionality.

With an upgrade, you'll invest in updated technology, advanced features, network connectivity, security, and other helpful specialties that can make your entire team more productive.

Invest in the Equipment You Need and Take Simple Steps to Keep it Functioning

Next, you want to ensure that you have the exact equipment you need. Whether you are upgrading or not, you can reach out to your partners at Base Technologies to ask if you have the right equipment. If you don't feel like your office equipment really meets your needs, they can help you evaluate better options.

Finally, once you get your office equipment, you can take a few simple steps to ensure that you have machines with a long, functional lifespan. These efforts include:

  • Ensure that the machine isn't crammed in a dense (or moist!) corner. This will avoid overheating and other hazards.
  • Avoid moisture of any type, and try to keep your machine out of humid areas.
  • Regularly clean the copier with a simple wipe down to remove dust and debris on the glass and the scanner.
  • Invest in high quality supplies (this is like using premium gas in your car).
  • Don't disrespect the machine - close trays gently, get help when moving the machine, and don't yank on cords.
  • Confirm a maintenance plan with your vendor.
