Copier Leasing :: FAQ

FAQ About Leasing a Copier

I've never leased a copier before. Which one should I order?
Call us. We will schedule an appointment for you with one of the Account Managers. The Account Manager will conduct a survey of your office. The Account Manager will assess your current office copying needs, as well an any future workload requirements (new staffing, change of operations, etc.) that may have an impact on your copying needs. In addition, the newer copiers are multifunctional, giving you the added capability to print or fax documents from the desktop. The account manager will take all of these factors into consideration and will recommend the appropriate copier that is right-sized for your office needs.

What features do I want with my copier?
The most common copier options are document feeder, finisher, scan, print, fax, and duplexing. Depending on the copier some of these options will come standard. Other options will increase your monthly lease cost. Please note that most of the copiers come standard with scan, fax, and print capability.

We are hiring some new employees. How can I figure out how many more copies a month we will be running?
Check out a few of your monthly invoices. Suppose you currently run 5,000 copies a month and have 20 employees. Divide the number of monthly copies by the number of current employees (5,000 (20 = 250). This gives you an estimated number of copies each employee runs in one month. Now, combine the number of current employees with new employees (20 + 5 = 25). Multiply the estimated copies per person times the total number of employees (250 x 25 = 6,250). So, you can estimate that 25 employees will be running about 6,250 copies per month if there are no major changes in your copier demands.
