Educator, Education
“I work for a sole practitioner attorney, who wants me to comparison shop for a 2-3 year digital copiers lease that covers 3000-4000 copies / month with service included. Need quotes on capabilities, what is & is not included (e.g., staples, ink), base price, cost for exceeding allotted copies, etc.”
Receptionist, Legal
“This copier will be for a new surgical (ophthalmic) practice. We are interested in a leasing option with service contract. We are currently obtaining estimates from various vendors to help us finish the business plan. Supplies can be purchased by us possibly but we’ll want a service contract that will allow for same-day emergency visits and/or copier loaners if the copy machine is down.”
“As a new business we expect to have a volume that may start slower but will quickly escalate over the first 6-18 months of the contract. Color-copying would be nice but is not critical. Copying, faxing and scanning will be important. We would like to use the copier as a networked printer as well.”
Office Manager, Healthcare
“We have a small office that does approx 3000 copies per month. We are looking for prices on basic digital copiers. Black & white that has basic sorting functions & medium speed. We want to compare that with a multi functional copier. One that has networking, fax, collating, stapling, is black & white and 8x11 paper with a bypass for card stock. We would like the prices for leasing and want the fair market value would run after the lease is up or how much if purchased out right. We are also interested in purchasing a service warranty with the copier.”
CEO/President/Owner, Advertising/Marketing/PR
“Will be networked & be main printer/copier for company. Need ability to scan & save to/e-mail to pdf. Possibly use as fax - may not be necessary. Need to be able to do 2 sided copies & sort. Don’t really care about staple. If capable of printing 9 x 12” envelopes a plus but not necessary (thru side feed - not tray).”
“We need digital copiers in our US office in Chattanooga, Tennessee. They must have these characteristics: 1) at least 40 copies per minute 2) finisher for brochures 3) 5 paper trays 4) black/white and color printing 5) 48 months leasing 6) flat fee per color or b/w copy estimated use is 20’000 b/w copies per month and 2’000 color copies. Some brands that come to my mind are Canon, Océ and Xerox, maybe HP. We looked at some that are about what we are looking for, namely Canon C5058, C5058i, C5180, C5185.”
Engineer/Programmer, Biotech/Pharmaceuticals
“We are a Psychiatric Group with large charts of patient files. We need several digital copiers that allow scanning of 8 — or more pages simultaneously for storage purposes. Our charts have to be records must be stored for years and kept within our premises. We need to reduce the number of file cabinets, boxes. Our goal is to place these records on CD’s or in folders on secured portals, the copier must be able to scan nearly a full chart to expedite the process.”
Purchasing Manager, Healthcare
“Looking for a copier that can be used as a printer, if needed. Must be able to enlarge and reduce copy size. Would like automatic feeder, with capabilities of manually placing the copy where I need to on the glass. We do a lot of enlarging of business cards. Thinking about using it also as a network printer.”

Digital Copier Advice

Digital Copier Overview and Basics

Choosing an office digital copier is not as easy as it once was. While, in the past, copy speed and sorting/stapling were the primary considerations, today's copiers are more complex. For example, copy machines now frequently include color copy functionality. While copiers are still available in black and white only or color only, combination machines, known as hybrid copiers, are now quite popular.

Hybrids, which only print in color when specified, are increasingly common as prices have come down for those machines and they therefore can provide the functionality and flexibility of two dedicated machines at once.

In addition to color copying features, technological improvements in machine memory and performance now allow you to add nearly any copier to a network, which enables digital copiers to offer printing, faxing or scanning capabilities. Additional software can even transform your copier into a document imaging system, where documents can be stored and accessed for future use.

In addition to the specific functions and features of your copier, take a close look at the service agreement and warranties along with carefully considering the costs and benefits of purchasing a machine or opting to lease your new copier instead. See the section below for more things to think about as you evaluate your copy machine options.
