Are you scouting the Boston market for a new copier? With years in the industry here are a few common mistakes we’ve noticed that buyers make. This should help you keep from making the same mistakes and get you pointed in the right direction as well.
- Rather than collecting quotes, collect data and make sure that you’re getting quotes for the right machine in the first place. This isn’t hard, get a few quotes and ask each salesman why he recommended the machine that he recommended. You’ll quickly see who has your best interest in mind.
- Don’t get color unless it’s needed! This often happens when a competitor offers a “free upgrade to color”. It’s not a lie, but they bank on the fact that companies don’t typically manage their color and end up using it anyway.
- Instead of getting hung up on a single feature, be open to finding the best machine. As is human nature, oftentimes people I speak with get hung up on a single feature like prints per minute, or a specific brand. These are important but if your focus is solely on one aspect it may add A LOT to your cost. Look at the whole picture.
