It may not be obvious to all potential buyers, but one of the most important considerations when selecting a copier vendor is whether they have the infrastructure to support your business locally.

It’s important that they not only have locations near you, but also have an adequate team working in those locations, and a warehouse to stock parts and supplies onsite.

In a perfect world, we all would choose C. Unfortunately, not all copiers are created equal and not all copiers give you this capability. It’s important to keep this in mind when choosing a copier. Many Sharp Copiers feature their built-in OCR (Optical Character Recognition) function, which allows users to easily scan and convert documents to popular file formats including Microsoft Word, PowerPoint, and Excel. In addition, users can scan to a number of PDF formats such as Searchable PDF, Encrypted PDF, Compact PDF and more.
