Did you know you can print, scan, and fax all on one multifunction device? Learn more about faxing on your MFP with BDS today.

By now, you may have heard of the popular printing device MFP (Multifunction Printer). MFPs are great additions to many print environments due to their print, scan, and fax abilities. You can complete all tasks with just one device at a quicker-than-average speed. We have spoken intensively about printing and copying regarding MFPs but have yet to dive fully into the fax option.

MFPs use fax technology to help you better send and receive messages. This highly advanced device is a great modern fax machine for sending and receiving messages in offices and long distances. MFPs allow you to send and receive messages quickly by scanning your document, transferring it to the document over to a signal, and finally sending that signal to another fax transmission device to decode and print the document out.

Using the fax function on your MFP

Using the fax function on your MFP is easier than it sounds. In fact, if you already have experience using a fax machine, integrating the MFP should be relatively easy. The MFP is well known for its easy-to-use interface, making it an excellent option for businesses and organizations of all sizes and industries.

Faxing on one MFP will not be different from faxing on another. With so many brands and models available on the market, each may have unique ways of using their fax devices. For example, Xerox corporation may use technology different from HP for transmitting images in their fax machine. Models may differentiate the process of faxing even more. However, it is still worth noting that all popular brands have created materials to help you learn how to function and utilize their devices properly.

If you start experiencing difficulties with your MFP faxing option and general troubleshooting is not helping, contact BDS so we can help you remedy the issue! Our service technicians are highly skilled and trained in working with these complex devices. We can arrive promptly to fix the problem and get you back up and running quickly. The last thing any business wants to deal with is excessive downtime, so we take great care to ensure you are up and running quickly.

Why an MFP over a traditional fax machine?

If you need to fax, you likely need to print and copy as well. Instead of investing in multiple devices to perform all these daily tasks, you can eliminate the clutter with just one device. A common fear we hear from businesses investing in one of these devices is that they will not perform up to speed due to an overload of tasks. Even with all these features, MFPs excel equally at printing, copying, and faxing speeds.

This becomes even more true when you factor in the model you use. In general, using older printing technology and equipment will not produce the speed results you may be looking for. As technology evolves, so does the need for better speed. So, investing in the newer MFP from the last five years will provide you with way better speed than the one from years ago.

Having all printing, copying, and faxing capabilities on one device will boost productivity in your office. When you can quickly and efficiently perform these tasks on just one device, you increase your team’s efficiency in completing their daily tasks. Furthermore, printers, copiers, and scanners can be large and bulky, taking up lots of precious space in your office. You can effectively reduce the number of devices in your office when investing in MFPs. Even two MFPs will save more space than an entire office of equipment.

Save and control print-related costs with MFP

Cost is the most significant deciding factor for businesses investing in new printing equipment. With MFP, we guarantee that you will save money down the line. By eliminating many devices in your print environment to only one, or even two, MFPs, you are saving yourself money on the retail, maintenance, and service costs of those extra devices.

Furthermore, when you pair your MFP with managed print services at BDS, you can gain better control over the number of print jobs. Unauthorized print jobs account for a significant cost per year. Gaining better control will minimize and prevent this cost from getting out of control.

Although these devices can be more expensive at a retail price, they do not have to be. You have different financing options for these devices when you partner with BDS. These options include leasing and purchasing certified preowned. Each option will help offset the cost of purchasing brand-new equipment. We pride ourselves on being flexible with payments and lease terms, so if you have concerns, do not hesitate to contact BDS today!
