One of the biggest conundrums for some businesses regarding business copy machines is the color/monochrome debate that is certain to begin raging when looking at the numbers. But, when dealing with copy machines and printers for business, what works best for one may be a painful and costly mistake for another.

At Capital Business Machines our business is helping your business thrive by making sure you have the best office copiers for YOUR business, not some one-size-fits-most mistake that you can’t afford.

For example, let’s say you install a Kyocera ECOSYS M6526cdn Color MFP but your print needs rarely stray beyond spreadsheets, memos, and letters. You’ll have an excellent printer that you don’t get full use of but costs more to operate than your use can justify.

On the other hand, if you opt for a Kyocera ECOSYS FS-4100dn Monochrome Desktop Printer, you’ll get much faster print speeds and lower operating cost in an economical package that will serve you well for many years. As long as you only print monochrome. Run many color print jobs and the cost of outsourcing will increase the price of the “less expensive” monochrome option well beyond what you would have spent for the right equipment at the start.

Both are fine machines but we use these illustrations to demonstrate how deciding the color vs. monochrome question involves more than a price/features comparison. What you print, how often, how fast, how many, how much color, how much monochrome, the list of considerations seems daunting but is well worth the effort if the goal is to maximize efficiency and avoid unnecessary expense.

Don’t risk a costly mistake. Come to Capital Business Machines instead. We’ll review your print needs along with initial and ongoing cost calculations and make recommendations that will keep you in the black no matter what color you print.

We also offer managed print solutions and a wide selection of Kyocera printers and copiers that will take the pain out of your office document management headaches.
