Why the Device Still Matters

The most popular Enterprise Matters post this year has been “Why the Device Matters,” which originally published in February. For the past year, the blog has been steadily raising awareness about new ways multifunction printers (MFPs) help us at work. They’ve become “workplace assistants” that manage our documents, route our workflow and keep information safe.

To further the conversation, we created a new guide, “Your Printers Matter More Than You Think: How Smart Printers Drive Change and Improve Your Bottom Line.” It explores the ways MFP workplace assistants contribute to your business, and their value goes beyond hardware. It’s really about how information flows throughout your organization. It’s about empowering employees, improving customer service, increasing security and even accelerating digital transformation.

But at some point, it all comes back to the device.

Thanks to intelligent MFPs, your documents and information tasks move consistently and flawlessly through workflow steps, making your business more efficient. Knowledge workers, customers, agents and branch offices use MFPs for paper and digital documents every day. Even so, we may not give much thought to the printers that share our work space, but don’t underestimate them. Equipped with the right technology, these devices can contribute to:

  • Information security
  • Customer experience
  • Digital workplace
  • Workplace innovation
  • Employee productivity
  • Sustainability initiatives
  • Compliance practices
