In-House vs. Outsourcing

Let's take a look at why so many organizations prefer the benefits offered by in-house printing and copying solutions.

  1. Multiple features in one device. The rise in popularity of the multifunction copier isn't surprising. Multifunction systems combine the capabilities of four stand-alone devices into one highly functional device. With copy, print, scan, and fax features all rolled into one; businesses can save money on equipment, supplies, maintenance, and energy. And one device doesn't demand nearly as much office space as four.

  2. Access to digital workflows. Scanning is a standard feature on multifunction copiers, and it's this capability that allows businesses to switch from cumbersome, paper-based processes to highly-efficient digital workflows. The advantages range from lower costs to enhanced document security and improved collaboration among staff members. Features that allow users to distribute digital documents to other users and document management systems can help companies transform their existing processes.

  3. Access to in-house wide format and production printing capabilities. For companies with unique or high-volume printing demands, in-house wide formator production printing equipment is a worthwhile investment. With exceptionally fast outputs, outstanding color, and high resolutions, these devices offer print shop results in-house and on demand.

  4. Enhanced security for confidential information. Security is an ongoing concern, and many companies prefer to keep their confidential documents in-house by limiting access to third parties. In the current debate over in-house vs. outsourcing, security concerns tip the balance heavily in favor of an in-house solution.
