Multifunction Printers in Kenya Multifunction printers (MFPs) also referred to as All in Ones (AIOs) bring more functionalities to a user, than just printing. The MFPs also have the ability to copy and scan, and for business MFPs some also have faxing capabilities. The MFPs come as either inkjet based or laser-based, so it is best to look at your particular requirements before settling on a model. Check out our website here or visit us at our physical shop at Compland Shop located at Bihi Towers, along Moi Avenue, Basement 1 shop no. B3 to take a look at a wide variety of the MFPs that we stock.
Generally, if your printing needs will be centered around pictures, then an inkjet based MFP should be your choice. However, if you care more about text than images, especially in an office setting, then you will need a laser class printer. Factors to Consider before settling on a MFP

1. Printing Needs
The first thing you should consider is whether your needs require double sided printing (duplex printing). Double printing saves on paper and makes the printing of brochures and flyers convenient. After printing, some MFPs also staple, punch holes and can also do cover binding, so it is worth looking for a particular model that does this should you require these services on a regular basis.

2. Scanning Needs
A printer that has a scanner within it will offer efficiency in the office while also saving space for business owners. Depending on the MFP that you choose, the scanning ability will vary from the basics such as scanning photos to offering security features like PDF encryption. Making sure that the MFP you want to purchase also works on a network can be crucial. This is especially true in an office environment where users are connected on a common office network.

3. Copying Needs
Some MFPs won’t work as standalone copiers. They require a computer to perform the copy functions while others don’t require a computer and can copy on their own. If you don’t have access to a computer at all times, it is paramount to check whether the MFP you want supports standalone copying otherwise you will be severely inconvenienced.
