Do you think you're a multifunction printer expert? Well, you probably are--but even experts can learn new tricks! Today we're here to show you three features on your multifunction printer that you might not know about--and why you should start taking advantage of them.

Learn Your Machine

Multifunction printers (MFPs) have so many features and options that it can seem impossible to learn every little detail. However, the more you know about your printer, the more you can get out of it--which is why it's always a good idea to "learn your machine." Do research, read the owner's manual, and, most importantly, try things out--that way, you know what tools you have at your disposal when you need them.

Here are three things you might not have known your multifunction printer could do!

#1: Scanning

You probably know your MFP can print, copy, fax, and scan, but do you know just how good it is at scanning? These machines come equipped with optical character recognition, which means they can turn a document into a searchable file that can then be moved anywhere on your network.

#2: Printing options

Multifunction printers are an office favorite not because they print, but because they offer so many printing options that you can finish an entire project without once leaving the machine. Double-sided printing, hole-punching, stapling, folding, creasing--you name it, your MFP can probably do it.

#3: Fax-to-email

Faxing might seem a little old-fashioned, but it's still pretty useful--especially when your multifunction printer can deliver faxes straight to your email. It's a great tool for boosting efficiency and streamlining workflows, and the best part is that it can all be automated.
