A NEW WAY TO EVALUATE COPIERS

Today’s copiers come with a lot of free software applications.  For years copier buyers have been asked the same questions:  what is your desired speed and what hardware features are you looking for.  Many copier buyers simply used the previous copier as a benchmark and quoted those specs as a benchmark.

 The digital conversion gave users the ability to print and scan but now there’s even greater choices.  For example, Kyocera offers HyPAS on all their new models.  HyPAS is a bunch of free software applications that are good to have on a copier.  I will give you one example since the list is extensive and constantly growing.

Today, most people are looking for color and because the cost of producing a color page is much more than a black & white page there is a concern for wastage.  For example, is an employee going to be tempted to do some personal printing at work to avoid the high cost of their inkjet printer at home.

HyPAS offers something called ColorLock & AccessLock.  This enables the owner or manager to control the cost of color pages to make sure they are authorized.  There can be access codes and other controls put in place to limit color usage.  This is one of the things our IT person does when we install a new copier for someone.

There is also another new feature coming from Kyocera which is revolutionary.  It will start coding spot color at a lower rate than a regular color page.  Up to now, there has been only two meters on a color MFP;  black or color.  Now there will be a third one for the company printing black pages with their color logo in the corner of the page.
