Is it time to upgrade your old copier? There are numerous possibilities available in today’s society! You can either continue with an updated version of your old copier or multitask by upgrading to a multifunction equipment (MFP). Most offices have both a copier and an MFP as basic equipment. While the names used to describe them and how they function are similar, they are not the same.

In this piece, we’ll compare classic copiers and multifunction printers (MFPs) to help you make a more informed selection when it’s time to improve your business.

  • Functionality – A copier has a single purpose and excels at it: it makes copies. A multifunction device not only copies but also prints, scans, faxes, and performs other functions. An MFP can print in both monochrome and colour. Both are capable of producing high-quality output, depending on the device.
  • Speed – Copiers have a higher ppm rate than multifunction printers. Short runs, on the other hand, show little variation in output rate. In terms of speed, the copier wins while making 1,000 copies of a single document. However, the difference is minimal for most day-to-day needs.
  • User-Friendliness – When they were initially introduced, MFPs were sophisticated and difficult to use. They became more user-friendly in the years that followed. Modern devices are now built with the user experience in mind. Most are controlled by a single button press.
  • Market Adoption – Because of the variety of jobs that an MFP can perform, more firms are abandoning dedicated copiers. Copiers should only be used for high-volume document output. As we move toward green efforts such as digital marketing and reduced consumables consumption, the multifunction printer (MFP) is replacing the copier in many businesses.
  • Device Size – MFPs, like other technologies, are getting smaller. Models that are small enough to fit on a desktop and light enough to walk around are already available. However, the larger the device, the higher the output.
