Multifunction printers (MFPs) have become the norm, especially in business settings. Whether you are using a black-and-white or coloured multifunction laser printer, you get to enjoy the wonderful benefits they provide.
Here are 6 things that multifunction printers can do that you may not know of:
1. MFPs are document hubs
Most MFPs nowadays, like the HP Officejet Pro X576dw and Epson WorkForce WF-3540, have a USB flash drive and memory card ports that are not only used to load files from their flash drive and print directly, but also serve as a file backup.
2. You can print even away from your MFP
Referred to as ePrinting, most multifunction printers, such as the Canon Pixma MG5720 Wireless Inkjet All-in-One, allow you to use Wi-Fi to print photos and documents even when you’re on the go. Just set up an email address where you can send files to print.
3. MFPs feature scanning and copying capabilities
Talk about saving cost and consolidating office assets! You can print, scan, and copy documents in one-go without losing quality.
4. Fax your files via MFP
MFPs’ fax capabilities are similar to stand-alone fax machines. Most multifunction printers have an automatic document feeder to allow you to stack as many papers to be faxed. Also, they feature fax page memory that enables you to scan files and save them in memory as faxes are sent. You can also fax documents to multiple numbers.
5. Ink saving
With the ability to use a font style like Ecofont, a multifunction ink-jet printer will help you save up to 50% of ink. Download Ecofont to print letters, symbols, and numbers.
6. Connectivity to apps and cloud
There are apps specifically designed to connect to MFPs, such as Xerox® Mobile Link and Brother™ iPrint&Scan, which allow you to print, scan, copy, and fax files using your mobile device. You can also save documents in the cloud.
