Nothing lasts forever. And that includes your office equipment. Hanging onto your copiers and printers when they’re clearly past their prime could slow down your business. There comes a time when you can no longer ignore the obvious – you need an equipment upgrade. Here are five clear signs that let you know you’ve reached that point.
You’ve Outgrown Your Equipment
As your business grows and expands, you may discover that your equipment is not up to the task. Often the devices you started with bear no relation to what you need now or in the future. For example, a printer may no longer meet your monthly output requirements. If your equipment is holding you back, it’s time to change.
Maintenance Costs Keep Rising
The repair bills are more frequent and more expensive. If you find the cost of repairing and maintaining your office equipment keeps rising, it’s due for an upgrade. Although new machines will require an investment, the price will more than pay for itself with fewer repairs and less maintenance.
Your Energy Bills Are Through The Roof
Electricity bills can quickly soar into eye-watering territory. Outdated and poorly functioning equipment consumes more power than the more energy-efficient and eco-friendly equipment currently on the market. If your energy bills are bringing tears to your eyes, it’s time for an upgrade.
Too Much Downtime
Another classic sign that your equipment needs upgrading is excessive downtime because of maintenance issues. A couple of isolated instances a year are average, but if your downtime is steadily increasing and hindering daily operations, it may be time to consider more reliable options.
