The establishment of a new business can be equal parts inspiring and stressful. While it’s the start of an exciting new venture, there are also plenty of costs to consider as part of the setup process. One of the things new businesses often overlook is their office machine requirements. New business machines are a must to ensure a company can run effectively, with anything from printers to shredders and photocopiers an essential for any modern office.
Why invest in new technology? If you want to ensure you comply with all paperwork and customer security compliances, using new machines that achieve those goals is essential. But with so many types of technology out there, what is essential and what is extra? These three machines are a must to start any business off on the right foot.
Whatever your business goal or industry niche, printers are essential for your office. Not only do they provide a way to access vital paperwork and information, but the majority of modern office printers also include scanning functionality. This allows for the convenient and practical digitization of incoming paperwork, as well as the ability to keep better records.
For businesses where external paperwork or documentation is a must, from HR contracts to customer information and invoices, a high-quality printer can reflect the quality of your business. Investing in a printer that’s not only hard-wearing but also of excellent quality can provide the best of both worlds. Printers are the very first piece of technology your business should invest in, following the essentials like computers and networking setups.

There are many privacy policies and customer promises that modern business is required to undertake, including GDPR and other forms of paper-based security protocols. With these rules in place, ensuring you’re vigilant with the safety and security of your company is more vital than ever before. By investing in document shredders, you can make sure that all company information – and the information of your customer – is safely disposed of.
Not to mention, for eco-conscious companies, shredded paper can often be recycled through office schemes to reduce your businesses’ overall footprint.

For the duplication of materials and the automatic scanning of essential documents, photocopiers are a must for all businesses. These multi-function devices offer companies with vital functionalities for anything from full-colour photocopying to simple scanning. While we often think of photocopiers as large, clunky and old-fashioned, the latest versions of these machines are compact, practical and incredibly high-quality.
With many machines having the capability to scan up to high DPI numbers, it’s possible to create like-for-like photocopies and scans of even details drawings and blueprints. The speed of your photocopiers also provides added productivity to the workplace, enabling the creation and scanning of original documents in minutes – even for hundreds of pages worth of information. Investing in photocopiers is an excellent move for new businesses and one that certainly pays off in the long run.
