Three Advantages of Multi-Function Printers (MFPs)

mfpMulti-Function Printers (MFPs) come in all shapes and sizes, and offer various options and functionalities, but most offer some combination of print, copy, scan, and fax functions. Combining all of these functions in one machine can offer many benefits to both small and large businesses.

To help you determine whether or not MFPs are a good fit for your business, Abe Thomas, CEO of Universal Business Solutions, has compiled the three of the largest advantages of Multi-Function Printers.

Cost Savings

Multi-function printers are typically more expensive than single-function printers. However, when you compare the cost of purchasing a separate printer, copier, scanner, and fax machine to the cost of an all-in-one solution, MFPs can offer huge cost savings.

Space Savings

Having a separate printer, copier, scanner, and fax machine can take up valuable office space that could be put to better use.  Compact, all-in-one printers can be a great way to regain space in your office and improve your overall workflow. If space is of particular concern in your office, you can even opt for a desktop MFP for extra space saving.


One advantage not to be overlooked is the convenience of combining your printer, copier, scanner, and fax functions into one easy-to-use machine. Not only do MFPs save time and improve workflow by combing functions, they also reduce the number of supplies and resources needed to operate multiple machines from different manufacturers.
