Enjoy more than 50% Print Cost Savings February 26, 2012

Posted by admin in : Canon Photocopiers , comments closed

Responding to demand for lower cost black-and-white office printers, Canon has introduced three remanufactured black-and-white Printers and copiers; the Canon imageRUNNER iR6570Ne, iR4570Ne and iR2870Ne.

Canon’s remanufacturing process increases the lifespan of its printers and enables Canon to offer the new range of remanufactured Printers and copiers at a significantly lower price than new printer devices.

Organisations in the public sector, environmental agencies and educational institutions may be interested in remanufactured printers as a way to help reduce their organisation’s impact on the environment.

The pan European remanufacturing programme ensures that up to 93 percent of parts by weight are reused to extend the life of Canon’s Printers and copiers. As significantly fewer new raw materials are required during remanufacturing, the resource consumption is much lower than in the production of new printer devices.

Canon’s high quality remanufacturing approach is more comprehensive than simply refurbishing printers with new or cleaned parts as is commonplace in the industry. Instead, each Mulifunction Printer(MFP) is completely rebuilt, the remanufactured printer device meet the same standards as new copiers.

The remanufactured printer devices meet the same standards as new printer devices, which enables Canon to reset the click counter to zero and appoint each Multifunction printer(MFP) with a brand new serial number. Technicians also incorporate the latest upgrades and erase previous data, essentially giving each printer a new life.

Organisations are constantly looking for ways to make their budgets go further and meet environmental standards.

In extending the life of some of Canon’s office printers, you can now benefit from significantly cheaper remanufactured office printers that are equivalent to brand new printer devices.

Cost-effective packages for canon office printers June 12, 2011

Posted by admin in : Canon Photocopiers, Managed Print Services, Office Printers , comments closed

Repairing your canon office printers when they break can be a costly affair.  That is why many canon dealers will offer you cost-effective packages when you buy from them.  These packages could include free maintenance and repair for a certain amount of time, usually a year.  They will also offer other forms of telephone and electronic support to help with any problems that you could fix.  There is another option that you can take up.  This is to get an office printer service contract.  The service contract is similar to an insurance policy where you pay a set amount to cover the printer.  This contract could also be calculated on a cost per copy basis where you only pay for what you use.  When you have this contract the response time is usually on the same day within a few hours of calling them in.

Maintaining your canon or office printer does not need to cost you an arm and leg.  Getting special packages from dealers is one way to limit the costs.  Another is to sign up for a service contract where your printer is insured and technicians will be sent to you if there is a problem.

Do You Have to Pay Every Time Your Printer Breaks? June 4, 2011

Posted by admin in : Canon Photocopiers, Managed Print Services, Office Printers , comments closed

There is nothing more annoying than the printer breaking just when you want to print.  Not only does this delay your printing but you usually have to pay sometimes exorbitant amounts to get the printer fixed.  The question is do you really have to pay every time your printer breaks?  The answer is no, there are other options available.

It’s annoying when you have to fix the office printer

An office printer is one piece of equipment that often breaks down and stops printing.  However, you may not have to fix the printer as there may be another less serious problem causing it to stop working.  Paper jams are more common than most people think and can be fixed by anyone.  All you have to know is how to open the printer and find the jammed paper.  Of course there are times when the problem is serious and you can’t do anything about it.  These are the most annoying times as you have to call in a repair man who sometimes can only come the next day.  This can disrupt your entire schedule and put you behind on your work.

If your canon printers go down what should you do?

If your canon printer does go down then there are some things that you should do before you call anyone.  The first step is to see if there are any warning lights on.  If you have run out of ink then your printer will tell you.  Additionally, if you have a paper jam your printer may tell you.  It is best to check your ink cartridges even if the light does not go on.  If you cannot find the problem yourself then you need to get someone in.  If you are close to a store that offers printer repair then you can also take it in yourself and often save the call out of the repair man.

Charges for setting up multifunction printers

The question that will now come to mind is how much your Canon dealer will charge you to set up multifunction printers.  The answer to this is that it should be done free of charge.  This should hold true even if you want the supplier to do more than just the basic installation.

It is very important that your supplier installs your new MFD.  The reason for this is that there are many settings that should be changed and things set up so that you can get the most out of the device.

To be cost-effective, Canon printers standard features should be implemented May 24, 2011

Posted by admin in : Canon Photocopiers, Office Printers , comments closed

There are many features that canon printers have that need to be set up properly.  Once these features have been set up correctly they will save you money in a range of different ways.  Some of these features are simply a change from default while others require the expertise of your Canon dealer.

One change to make is with the printing set up.  It is best to change the setting from default to duplex printing.  By doing this you can save 40% per month on your paper costs.  This setting will have the printer print on both sides of the page instead of one.

It is highly unlikely that you will always have to print in colour.  By changing the default setting to print in black you can save money.  If there is the need to print in colour then users simply choose that option.

ID modes will allow you to see how much printer usage a person or department is going through.  If a department that does not need to print is using the printer then you can go about stopping prohibited printing.  This can save money on paper costs and ink.

Fax divert to email is a great feature that saves your money.  Many people will get faxes that do not actually have to be printed.  By having the fax go to email you will not have to print faxes unnecessarily.  This saves on paper, ink and time.

If at all possible setting print to mailboxes is a great idea.  This feature allows you to have secure printing that is password protected.  This is great for any business where certain things are on a need to know basis.

This setting saves a lot of money as any printing job that is in the mailboxes will automatically be deleted after 12 hours.  This means that if someone realises that they don’t need to print you haven’t wasted paper and ink.

RUI or remote user interface means that you will save time one your employees having to check the availability of the printer.

This feature comes with all standard Canon software.  The Canon team is allowed to monitor your printer 24/7 and will be notified if there is a problem saving you time in having to call for maintenance.

It Is Important How Your Supplier Installs Your New MFD (Multifunction Printer) May 20, 2011

When you get a new MFD for your office the supplier will usually come and install it for you.  How your supplier install it is very important as this can change how much you save with the new device.  There are many settings that can make the use of Canon office printers very cost effective.

Basic installation of your multifunction printing device by your supplier

Your canon supplier will do a basic installation for you when you buy an MFD.  Of course one thing to keep in mind about this is that the basic installation will usually not be completely cost effective and productive.  Multifunction printing devices have many features that can help you save money and energy but they need to be set up correctly in order for you to get the full effect.
