WHAT TO DO WITH YOUR OFFICE PRINTER WHEN WORK IS REMOTE?CopierEarth_Editor
A lot has changed over the past 15 months since the pandemic started. Many people have left the office and are working remotely. Although companies are creating their back to office plans, remote work may become the dominant form of working for the future.
What does this mean for your office spaces and office devices? We have some answers for you. Although remote work has been convenient in many ways for employees, there have been a variety of challenges that we have had to navigate – one of them being utilizing office devices.
We once lived in a world where printers, fax machines and scanners were easily accessible and available in the office. When working from home became the dominant form of work for thousands of employees, these office resources became scarce. Below highlights some of the ways to mitigate this issue and how employees can still get full-access to key office resources even while working remotely.
SHORT-TERM RENTAL FOR YOUR EMPLOYEES:
Although many companies are currently working remotely, this may not be a circumstance that lasts forever. Short-term rentals are a good way to have full-access to office accessories such as a printer, without having the permanent commitment.
By renting your printer, your employees can have these devices in their home office, and their work structure will be enhanced with a full-service printer available to them but without the commitment of buying a printer or leasing one long-term.

One small printer that we offer, the Canon IRA 400IF is a great, compact printer that is perfect for small spaces and the work-from-home life.
OFFICE HOURS: SIGN IN AND PRINT
In order to maintain safety and compliance to government regulations throughout the pandemic, your company may want to create a sign in sheet to allow employees to go into the office to get use of your office accessories.
By creating a sign-in sheet and notifying your employer when you will be visiting, you can ensure the safety of your employees and your printer will no longer have to be alone in the office! This allows for your printer to get its full-use and for employees to maintain their productivity.
