Copiers as we have known them in the past, are an item of the
70's 80's and 90's. The integration of the computers,
communications to include those with "Printers" are a essential
of today's business. In the Old days of copiers, they were bulky
and impossible to work on, if a drum needed to be replaced, you
would have to call the service people out to replace the drum.
When is the last time you had to replace a drum in your laser
printer? and you were able to do it your self. This is the benefit
of a Multi Functional Peripheral (MFP). The user can perform the
emergency maintenance, that in the past would be a couple of days
before a copier service man would show up.
Today's MFP products is simply a Printer, with attachments,
i.e. Collator, today called mailboxes, Stapler, Hold Puncher,
Scanner with an automatic Document Feeder, and Fax Machine.
A multifunction peripheral (MFP) is defined as a device that
incorporates two or more functions, including copying, faxing,
printing and scanning. The principal benefit of an MFP is its
ability to provide department-wide access to all of its functions
via a direct connection to a company's network.
A MFP product gives you the power to control the entire
document creation, delivery and output process directly from your
desktop, and it does so with greater efficiency and reliability
than the "COPIER" competition
