Colour multifunction laser printer - buy or lease?

Hi,

We're a small office services team with 6-8 people typically in the office.

I've calculated that we're printing in the region of about 3000 A4 prints per month, and a rough estimate that we are spending about £3200-£3500 per year on consumables for the printer (including toner, drums, fuser, transfer belts and paper).

We're currently using an OKI MFP 3520 multi-function printer which seems to go through drums, fuser, transfer belts and toner like there's no tomorrow.

At what kind of volumes does it become financially viable to have an all-in-one cost-per-print type contract?

We want a nice, fast printer with low consumables costs (doesn't everyone?)

All advice appreciated.

Rent.

Supply & Service Contract: This one may have several different names but basically, they supply the Machine and all materials, you pay per copy.

you will probably benefit from having a managed printing plan contract.

There are lots of companies who do this kind of thing - one that I've heard good reports about is called Printerland

You can get them on 0800 840 1992
