Following a year of workplace changes that taught businesses plenty about scalability, we now review the function of the everyday office. No longer serving as the main workspace for employees following pandemic enforced remote working measures.
Businesses providing such flexible workspace arrangements such as co-working, shared office spaces or ‘work from hotel’ solutions will therefore need to step up to adapt to the trends. Providing operationally ready environments is one, but delivering more value to remote workers is another.
Ensuring that these flexi-work places come equipped with printers that have similar or more functions than that of their usual workspace is pertinent. What are the best office printers to suit today’s working styles?
Konica Minolta’s range of award-winning bizhub i-SERIES Colour MFPs are conceived and designed with the consumer in mind. Whether you are an executive managing corporation, an IT professional streamlining security and managerial processes or a daily user preferring simple interfaces, our colour multifunction printers are aimed at delivering productivity with top-class technology and ease of use.
Here’s a guide to get started.
