What's the benefit of leasing versus buying?

Running your business successfully is all about keeping capital available, particularly at the outset and leasing a printer, scanner, multi-function copier, is the most cost-effective method of maintaining cashflow.

Can you really save me money?

Yes we can. KRL are experts in reducing expenditure through efficient printing and copying costs, with a large dedicated support team and bespoke remote software to diagnose and solve costly stoppages.

What kind of support and maintenance does a printer need?

Like a new car, printers are now ultra-reliable. KRL provide equipment with warranties and offers support for out of warranty machines. Most printers only need attention paying to toners. Our support team look after the rest.

Can I scan directly to my computer?

Scanners can read images and documents and can save this directly to your computer, often without any special software. If the machine is connected to the same wireless network as your business computers, this is even easier and quicker to manage.

Can you help me to set up secure document scanning and archival?

Yes we can help you set up secure document scanning and archiving. With paper management becoming costly, we automate processes, help you go paperless and reduce your expenditure.

How does GDPR impact copiers, printers and scanners?

The ICO states clearly that  “The GDPR requires you to show how you comply with the principles – for example by documenting the decisions you take about a processing activity.” We can show you how to implement a policy that will keep your print and document management GDPR compliant.

I need a FAX capability, can you help with that?

Yes, many of our supplied machines have Fax capabilities, Some can enable the user to change scan settings according to the original and to save incoming faxes in a User Box.

I just want a photocopier! What are these MFD's that you mention everywhere?

These Multifunctions can photocopy, print, scan and fax in one machine. You could opt for one of these or one that prioritises copying so you can avoid business bottlenecks.

Can I print from PCs on my office network?

Yes. You have to decide first how this will be managed, and KRL can advise you. With Windows 10, a master PC is set up for the printer either through the Cloud or via WiFi and other PCs have sharing settings implemented.

How do I reduce paper waste from my copier?

It’s good practice to reduce paper waste across your business. Companies are increasingly moving to digital storage.  Checking documents carefully before printing can reduce costs; asking customers to be invoiced digitally and sending emails not letters are other cost-effective methods.

When was the photocopier invented?

It’s a fairly recent technology and was patented first in 1938 by Chester Carlson, although it took until 1959 for Xerox to introduce commercial photocopying.
