5 Best Tips to maintaining your office copier fleet:
  1. Training Your Team – Your team should know the basic features and functions of your copy machine but it would be ideal if your team knew maintenance basics too such as how to fix paper jams correctly and replace toner cartridges.
  2. Maintenance Agreements – Although they seem like an expense you can forgo, maintenance agreements are actually very helpful and will save you more money than they cost. Forget calling in a third party technician that can cost hundreds, relay on your maintenance agreement for quick fixes and maintenance check-ups you can schedule every quarter for your equipment.
  3. Connect To The Network – If your office uses one copier to service all of your employees it will be a time saver to connect the copier to your company network so the equipment is eligible to all employees.
  4. Prevent Jams – As the weather changes, your office environment can get humid and expose your equipment to moisture causing more paper jams. Keep your ream of paper in a dry location even when not opened.
  5. Reduce Static – Static electricity can cause damage to your equipment. Prevent damaging your equipment by placing a rubber mat in front of the machine.
