Most of the smart and technologically active organizations already have smart machines called Multi Functional Printers (MFPs) installed their premises. If you too want to stay abreast with technological advancements but are not very convinced with the benefits of these smart machines, let’s take you through.

Benefits of MFPS are:

  1. Increased Productivity.

Multifunctional Printers have been claimed to be one of the smart devices that have raised employee productivity. MFPs are loaded with features that have not only made business processes speedier and simpler but also enhanced the productivity of all those who work for you. These devices are so smart that they not only print but automatically save the document for reference in future and encrypt the documents for security purposes. For a detailed description you can read our earlier blog on MFPs enhancing productivity.

  1. Tracked printing costs.

With MFPS you get an advanced feature of tracking your overall printing cost. This is possible with the help of print management software which not only monitors activities like printing, scanning and copying but also generates reports on utility of the device and expenditure incurred on various replenishments.
This feature of smart MFPs not only helps you in analyzing areas where costs can be cut down but also helps you in making strategies for optimum utilization of the device.

Today every organization whether running a profitable business or a non-profitable business known the importance of security of information.

How to increase office productivity with Smart Printers?

Living in the technology oriented 21st century, we are surrounded by smart machines that help raise our productivity. These machines not only help us perform our daily tasks effectively but also do multiple tasks at one time efficiently.

Office productivity today does not only depend on the workforce but also on the essential equipments in our workplace. Among the necessities of today’s offices are printers, photocopiers, and scanners. But the twist that smart technology has added to these important machines is that it has merged the function of these devices and given us a multi-function printer.

Below are a few points that can persuade you for installing smart printers:

  1. Multiple functions.

A smart copier offers you atleast four functions in one namely – Print, Copy, Scan and Fax. This means that you need not move from one machine to another just for the sake of collecting your papers. You can easily get your document printed, copied and scanned and even send it through fax to the concerned person. Reducing the to and fro time really adds to the enhanced productivity in your office.

  1. Improved productivity with less space.

As just explained in the point above that a smart copier or a multi-functional copier allows you to perform four functions. This means that inspite of placing four different machines in your office; you can unclutter your office. When you can do all the important tasks in one device then you can obviously reduce the clutter and replace them all with a better and more efficient option.

  1. Offers productivity beyond boundaries.

With the advancement in technology, the smart copiers also offer wireless commands. In simple words this means that you can connect to these smart devices without being physically attached to them. They have another added feature of being easily accessed from mobiles, tablets or laptops. This improves employee productivity as they can move beyond the office boundaries but still remain connected through cloud.

Staying collaborated through cloud also allows your employees to access documents from any device and hence boosts their productivity even when they are not in the office.


Working with devices that not only boost productivity but also make remarkable difference in your workplace efficiency is the need of the hour. Staying abreast with technology and including such smart devices as a part of your office can make you a winner in business.

Simple ways to cut down Printing Costs

Are you looking for ways helping in reducing your printing costs? Don’t worry. We have jotted down some simple yet important points that can help you save a lot on your printing costs. With little awareness and precautions in the way we use ink and paper, you can easily reduce the expenditure which is being incurred uselessly.
Here are 8 points to reduce your printing costs.

  1. Choose the right printer.

This means that you need to know your printing needs and select the printer accordingly. Analyse what are your printing requirements in context with quality of the prints as well as their quantity. Print job requisites can easily help to guide you in selecting the right printer for your office.Ideal choices for:
>Bulk Printing is a Monochrome Laser Printer
>Often color printing is Color Laser Printer
>Digital photos or rare printing is Inkjet printer.

  1. Print wisely.

Printing wisely means that while printing for in-house communication or for ordinary communication, take prints in draft or economy mode. While taking prints from web pages, take a moment to remove any advertisements, unnecessary design and borders, which require quite a lot of ink.

  1. Use quality paper.

For prints that are important for the organization, such as contracts or client presentations and even for digital prints or images, make sure to use quality paper. For a safer and longer life of your printer without much repairing and maintenance costs, using quality paper specifically manufactured by the manufacturer helps. As low quality paper jams your printer quite often and wastes paper as well as ink and this makes another slot for incurring repair cost.

  1. Avoid color prints.

Avoid your prints in color which can be easily done in black and white. Getting simple prints instead of color ones can save a lot. As on comparing it might cost as much as 10 times of monochrome prints or even more than this.

  1. Refill with compatible ink.

Sometimes to save the cost of ink cartridges, we choose to refill them with cheaper ones. This might turn out to be a disaster for the printer. Rather than saving your supplies cost, it may raise it with an additional cost for repair due to ink leakage, poor quality prints and even short life of cartridges. So it is advisable to use original ink within the warranty period and later you can shift to compatible generic ink.

  1. Print atleast once a week.

Sometimes when you have rare printing requirements, your printer stays at rest for long. But when it is at rest, the ink gets clogged in the ink nozzles and the ink gets dried up. To avoid any such issues in your printer, do take one test print or normal print atleast one in a week.

  1. Use print preview.

Print preview helps you to take a note of any irregularities or mistakes just before you command a print. This not only helps you make the correction in time but also save a print from going waste.

  1. Look for competitive prices.

This is a very feasible and real thing that every business looks up to. No one likes to spend more for something of almost same quality. So, when you have determined to cut down your printing costs do look for a better bargain but don’t fall short of quality. If you don’t consider quality products for the sake of cost cutting then in the long run they might turn out to be higher causes of incurring expenditure.


We hope that these easy yet very effective steps will help you cut down your printing costs to a great extent.  Even trying duplex printing and going digital can help you save a lot of paper and go green.

A Guide to Leasing Printer/Copiers for Start-ups

As we all know, starting up a new business is no simple task and any bit of help one can get these days, is surely welcomed. We all know printers and copiers are essential for the office but at the same time can be costly and swallow budgets without you really knowing it. They are costly when they break and buying toner these days at retail is insane!

To help you make the right decision for your needs, we’ve prepared this list of helpful steps to follow for ensuring you are making the right decision.

Steps to follow:

  1. Define your needs.

The very initial and most important thing that you need to do is to define your requirements. If your startup business is such that you require larger volume duplication or prints fairly regularly, then there is a wide variety of machines that cater to those needs. Maybe your organization focuses more on smaller production photo type color prints etc.Once you are sure of your needs, then you are ready to start making your decision.

  1. Research

Once you are through with your requirements, next step you should follow is to do a little research and/or even visit your provider (if they are local…always call first). A good local company with a great reputation comes with experience and good trade practices. So, they would be the right place to help guide you on what models of machine might best suit your needs and likely fill you in on respective prices and cost. Purchasing is costly many times, so leasing is a great option!

  1. Consider rental options in terms of time

a) Short term rentals
Starting up is a risky affair. You are quite unsure on the probability of success and failure. Though short-term rentals are costlier than long-term contracts yet they are a safer route that you can take up when you not sure of the amount of usage that you will do. Within a month or two you can evaluate your usage and extend or upgrade the contract accordingly.

b) Long Terms rentals
Long Term rentals are less costly and have an added advantage of easy upgrading. Leasing helps you to stay up to date with the technology, that is quite a disadvantage in purchasing the equipment outright. It helps you to be innovative enough to take utilize the opportunity and will not leave your company be lagged behind. Flexible and cost-effective leasing solutions can surely lead you to be a successful businessman.

  1. Consider the benefits of leasing

a) Low upfront costs
Leasing helps in saving on the credit available with a start-up. This means that you are not expected to tie-up a hefty amount of your money in buying a photocopier which you can otherwise invest in your capital.

b) Avoid Obsolescence.
Obsolescence is a major concern for small businesses or for start-ups. Leasing offers an easy solution to avoid obsolescence. Another fact is that basic printers have lower rates of getting obsolete than that of printers with high technology features.c) Covered Maintenance costs
Leasing comes with another major benefit of covering the maintenance costs within the leasing contract. Most of the providers offer maintenance costs included I the lease agreement or the same can be paid separately.



We have listed the step by step process along with some benefits of leasing a photocopier to help not only start-ups but also for established firms to consider leasing as an efficient method of acquiring equipment.

Should you ever have question or wish to discuss your printer requirements, please feel free to contact us. At Milkman, we’re here to help!

What matters most- Quality or Price of Cartridges

Have you been a victim of a cheap photocopier cartridge?

Then you can easily understand the discomfort of facing the downtime. Although we all look for good bargains but sometimes these unwise decisions claim to be costly affairs.

Talking about buying photocopier or printer cartridges, there are many low price alternatives available in the market. But their reality is visible after you start using it. Initially they seem to be fine but after a few prints, you may come to know the reason for which they were cheap.

In this blog we shall be sharing a few things which you should consider before buying new cartridges.

  1. Compare on time and various other factor.

First of all know what cost are you paying for the original cartridges or quality cartridges presently. Notice the cost they are claiming for the cartridge online. Now compare not only the difference in cost of the two but also the time it will take to arrive you from the day of placing the order. If it arrives in time, then can you afford to wait for new cartridge in case it turns out to be defective or substandard?
Other factor that you need to consider is the returns policy. Returns policy is very easily accessible for reputed companies. Study the return policy before making a purchase so that you are acquainted with all the aspects while returning the product.

  1. Call before you order.

Before placing an order with a company for the first time, try talking to them. The way you are responded over phone can give you an estimate of how they respond to their customers. In case you don’t find any contact information of that company then you should drop the idea of buying from them.

If contact number is available, then do make a call and try to find all the details that matters to you. Ask them about time taken to deliver to your location, clear your return policy doubts (if any), warranty of the product and even about the replacement policy for the same.

  1. Analyse the Deal.

When you are through with all the things that affect your purchase decision, including the bargain or amount less payable, then you must analyse if the deal is worth to be made. In other words that if even if you are able to fetch a discount or you are paying 10-15% less than your current cartridge then is it surely going to benefit you. In today’s world time is money and if you lose time then you are definitely going to lose money.

Analyse the money saved in comparison with the time lost and even the substandard quality of product and after sales service. Carefully measure the disadvantages and benefits of saving cost.

At MilkMan Toner Company, we ensure to deliver you quality products and offer the best replenishment and maintenance services. You can contact us for more details. We are always happy to help you.


How to fix common Fax Machine issues yourself

Just like printers and photocopiers, fax machines have also become an essential part of your office. And same as printers there occur some common issues with fax machines as well which are disrupting but can be resolved at your own end.

Though fax machines are complicated machines with exquisite sensors and motors yet issues like paper jams, print quality issues, send but cannot receive and such other communication errors are some of the most common issues that are faced by the users. We shall share some troubleshooting tips for such common issues that you can fix at your end and save the money for technician’s visit.

Problem 1. Print quality issue.

Solution.Problems in print can be either too dark or too light a print or that of having lines and splotches on the prints. To resolve the too dark or too light issue you just need to make relevant settings in the density options for print in your fax machine.

For lines and splotches, the reason can be a damaged cartridge which is causing a leak or spill within your machine. This too can be rectified at your end. You need to access the document feeder area, take a strong clean cotton cloth and wipe that area. Also try to carefully clean all the moving parts.

Most important is the scanner slit glass. If the lines appear while scanning and not while printing then the problem lies in the slit glass. For this you need to remove the ADF cover and find a one inch by eleven inch glass. Look for any streaks or lines or anything stuck onto it and try to clean it gently with your finger and then with an alcohol swab.

But if the lines appear while you print the document then you need to access the printer door of the machine. If you find a bunch of dry black powder in case of laser printer fax machines and drips of ink in case of ink jet printer fax machines then you need to replace your ink cartridge and clean the area around.

Problem 2.Multi-feeding.

Solution. Multi-feeding is when the automatic document feeder has a stack of papers and it pulls more than one sheet of paper at a time. This is due to the wear out of a small part in ADF called separation pad. It has a function of separating each paper while it moves out for printing or copying. This means that you need to replace it which can put your fax machine back to work in a good condition. While replacing the separation pad you should try to clean the ADF feed roller as well for putting it to use like new.

Problem 3.Paper jams.

Solution.Paper jam is a common issue faced in printers as well as in fax machines. In small fax machines the target area to check paper jam is the ADF or the printing area whereas the bigger ones alerts you of the area of jam itself. The trick to remove paper jam is to access the respective area and pull the paper in the same direction in which it was supposed to move naturally.
