Your Copiers—The Downsides to Downtime

Not Again?!

Your copiers are an integral part of your organization's daily operations. They do more than just copy—they're document production tools that keep your business moving forward. That's why things tend to go downhill fast when your copiers aren't functioning correctly—or at all. Top 5 brutal things that happen when your copier goes down. 

We'll refrain from dwelling too long on the moaning and hair-tearing that follow when your copiers go on the blink, but we would like a minute of your time to talk about some of the less obvious difficulties.

  1. Loss in productivity— It's a shame to see those hourly employees killing time because the project they've been working on all week is suddenly in limbo.
  2. Missed deadlines— Maybe it's just Murphy's Law of Copiers, but they seem to fail at the most inopportune times. On second thought, is there ever a good time?
  3. Missed opportunities— Is there anything worse than asking your clients to wait because your copiers have failed? Actually, there is. You could ask them to accompany you on a drive to the corner copy shop. If you throw in coffee and donuts, they might overlook it this time.
  4. Paying for service— If your copiers were purchased from a big-box office supply store, you might not have access to qualified technicians. Emergency break-fix scenarios are never cheap.
  5. Playing catch-up— Your employees may have enjoyed the break, but everyone knows there'll be plenty of catching up to do when the copiers are back in service.
