A good all-in-one printer can provide a small business with a simple way to print out hard copies of documents, scan receipts and other important items to keep digital records, and even communicate with others via fax.
Even with more and more businesses cutting down on paper usage, these devices offer enough functionality to be worth the investment for a lot of small businesses. But nearly two-thirds of small businesses don’t have any idea what they spend on printing related costs. So choosing a great printer that works for your needs and can keep costs down should be a top priority.
