Think of the office equipment you use every day in order to perform your job in a correct and timely manner: your computer, your printer, your scanner, and your copy machine are just a few pieces of machinery that we often take for granted. It’s difficult to understand how vital their functionality is in doing our work until a problem is detected and a drastic repair is needed. It’s like the song says: “Don’t it always seem to go, that you don’t know what you got ‘til it’s gone?”

At Anatec Office Equipment Solutions, we want to help you prevent problems with your essential office equipment by emphasizing just how important frequent, through inspection of your office equipment is. While our professional guidance and expertise is essential in repairing any potential damage to your work space’s machinery, it helps for you to be proactive and keep an eye out for potential problems, before a small repair becomes a big (and costly) one!

It’s important to have a basic understanding of when and how office equipment should be repaired. Now, there are of course obvious signs that repair or a tune-up is needed, and the equipment in question, such as your copier, color printer, or scanner often tell you that itself! Common ways that your copier or printer can indicate that a problem is occurring include a flashing light, a warning projected on its display screen, or even a blip in operation.

Another problem we see is that machines can’t handle the workload that is being attempted. If you make your machine maintain a consistent, heavy work-load, that means more service checks are needed. We’d say, on average, machines like printers and copiers need routine maintenance performed on then after roughly 300 hours of operation. When you reach this point, it’s time to give us a call, even if your company has purchased office equipment from us that is under a repair warranty, the crucial thing is: don’t delay having a skilled professional inspect the problem.

Broken or ill-functioning office equipment is a hazard to productivity and efficiency. Let Anatec Office Equipment help you perform your job the way you should be by ensuring that the equipment you use on a daily basis is working the way it’s supposed to.
