Remote Workers Still Need Printers

For many companies, full-time remote work has become a short-term solution for protecting employee health and safety—not a long-term one. Eventually, many employers hope that employees will return to work on-site at least part-time. As of October 2020, even the tech giant Microsoft has created a “hybrid workplace” to allow employees to work on-site as needed. There are many reasons why employees may need to work on-site, whether that means reporting to a Miami headquarters every week or only a few times a year. Physical work spaces foster and enable:

  • Collaboration and productivity (70% of employees are less productive working from home!)
  • Company culture
  • Access to equipment—including (but not limited to) printers, copiers, scanners, and fax machines

 

To that last point, most remote employees still have the same responsibilities that they did before their jobs shifted to home-based work. Take the job of Product Delivery Lead at Lennar Homes, a corporation headquartered in Miami. This remote-eligible position, listed in November 2020, allows the employee to work from home but they must be located near one of the company’s offices in the United States. This implies the need for hybrid work. The employee mostly works from home but may be required to come to the office from time to time.

For South Florida companies looking to re-think their office spaces, it is essential that office equipment factor into planning. One name that enters many equipment managers’ minds is “Xerox.” As an office technology innovator, Xerox offers a wide variety of office solutions. Over the course of more than 50 years, Xerox has been a leader in everything from copying to cloud services to 3-D printing.

 

Some equipment needs an employee with a hybrid work model may have include:

  • Document printing: The printer is the first equipment need that comes to mind for many employees. Not everyone has a home printer or a printer that can handle the capacity of printing multiple, high-quality documents. Xerox offers multifunction printers for different team sizes, whether an office has a work team of 2 to 10 users or much larger workgroups.
  • Banner printing: A standard home printer cannot handle large-scale graphics work, such as banner printing.The Xerox PrimeLink C9065/C9070 is an example of a product that offers banner printing with breakthrough performance, from image quality to finishing.
  • Copying: Similar to document printing, many employees have to make copies at a quantity or quality that a standard home printer cannot handle. This is certainly a reason to come into the office. Whether an equipment manager seeks a copier that produces black-and-white or color copies, Xerox offers a wide menu of options.
  • Scanning: Many office employees simply do not have a scanner of any kind at home, let alone one that allows for scanning larger documents at an incredible resolution. Whether they need to scan government I.D.s, concept drawings, and archival photographs, employees of all kinds probably will need scanner access at some point. (And design workers will need it far more often than most!) Xerox carries equipment that will lets one scan and even email the document or save it to the cloud.
  • Faxing: Though it’s tempting to think that email makes fax machines obsolete, that is definitely not the case. It’s the network effect: enough businesses still use fax, so businesses need to use fax in order to do businesses. Plus, it can be isolated from the Internet and communicate over phone networks for encrypted communication. Xerox offers equipment with fax capabilities, too.

Multifunction Printers

No matter the state of affairs, South Florida businesses keep marching on. Whether that means relying on tried and true office technology or trying new office equipment, printing, copying, scanning, and/or faxing are still part of the day-to-day equation of business operations. Miami offices can opt for a device that consolidates these functionalities into a single machine called a multifunction printer. A multifunction printer from an office technology pioneer like Xerox can lower costs and better a company’s workflow through multitasking.

 

Why buy a multifunctional printer during the era of remote work?

It’s important to remember that not everyone is working remotely anymore or made the shift in the first place. According to a report from FlexJobs, 6.2 percent of Floridians work remotely as of June 2020. (And one of the most remote-friendly companies in the state is Kaplan, headquartered in Fort Lauderdale.) Miami-Dade and Broward County businesses have moved to a new normal. Businesses are operating with masking, social distancing, and capacity limits in keeping with the Governor’s Order. Most serve many of the same functions they did prior to Spring 2020, meaning they still have printing, copying, scanning, and faxing needs to fulfills. And as we know, the rise of the Digital Age, has not cancelled our needs for these services. Even employees who do work remotely might need (or benefit from) multifunction printer access.

 

What businesses and institutions might benefit from having a multifunction printer?

  • Miami tourism. Tourism is the number one industry in Miami, with companies like Royal Caribbean Cruises and Norwegian Cruise Line maintaining a sizable presence in the area. These companies are taking enhanced health and safety measures at this time and are still up and running. A tourism company may use a multifunction printer to do everything from copying and scanning passports to printing Bingo sheets and menus. On the administrative side, tourism company offices need to print, copy, scan, and fax like any other office.
  • Miami schools, colleges, and universities. Even with remote and hybrid learning, printing still matters. Administrators, teachers, and other staff may need to print documents on-site, no matter where students are learning. After all, there are 40,000 employees in the Miami-Dade County Public School system alone! Parents may appreciate having multifunction printer access, too.
  • Miami restaurants. Those menus and coupons won’t print themselves! Multifunction printers could even serve employee needs at fast food restaurants for tasks like printing hiring paperwork or quick signs (e.g., “Out of Service,” “Ice Cream Machine Is Down,”etc). Burger King, an American global chain, is headquartered in Miami and started with 10 locations in Miami, West Miami, Homestead, Pinecrest, Perrine, and Hialeah—all of which are still open today. Or a more local favorite, Pollo Tropical, could use multifunction printers at its headquarters or any of its 141 locations throughout the Sunshine State.
  • Miami real estate. From real estate and construction companies to homebuilders, this industry involves contracts above all else. Architectural drawings and property photographs are just some of the many other documents that may need to be printed, copied, scanned, or faxed by Miami strongholds like Lennar and Keystone Holdings.
  • Miami healthcare facilities. Hospitals, doctor’s offices, nursing homes, and any other company in the health and wellness industry must print, copy, scan, and fax. Just imagine the waiting room paperwork alone! Multifunction printers can help these offices, from Baptist Health South Florida to VITAS Healthcare, process their heavy workload everyday. This goes for the provider and the patient side.
  • Miami religious institutions. Churches, synagogues, mosques, and temples have printing, copying, scanning, and faxing needs, whether they are printing prayer sheets or flyers for food banks. Congregation members and volunteers might also benefit from multifunction printer access.
  • And more!

 

So, what’s the best multifunction printer for a Miami office?

This will depend upon the company and the office in question. Every company has different needs, depending upon its industry, workflow, amount of business it receives, company culture, and more. Even the physical layout and dimensions of the office may influence which multifunction printer (or other Xerox office equipment) would work best for a location. This is one of the reasons why excellent customer service—a top priority for TinLof Technologies—is key. Anyone charged with ordering office equipment at any office in Broward and Miami Dade Counties needs to connect with a knowledgeable, experienced Xerox sales agent to get practical recommendations that suit their needs.
