Walnut - California - US

WALNUT, Calif. - Feb. 14, 2014 - PRLog -- Perhaps better than anyone, Pacific Office Automation Walnut Creek understands the importance of avoiding interruptions in office workflow. The company's expertise in streamlining office efficiency in order to increase productivity and yield increased revenue has made them highly sought after. Given the importance of maintaining office workflow efficiency, it is somewhat surprising that many companies overlook printer maintenance.

"In order to keep anything running smoothly, it must be properly taken care of and maintained," said a representative with Pacific Office Automation Walnut Creek. "A major part of office workflow involves the use of printers, so they must be taken care of in order to ensure their efficient function."

The company took some time out to discuss the simple methods that all companies should use when it comes to printer maintenance. It is the company's hope that sharing these methods will help companies avoid unwanted interruptions in workflow, especially since an unexpected interruption is more likely to cause significant decreases in productivity and efficiency.

According to the representative, the first step should be fairly obvious: Keep the printer clean.

"Many people don't realize the negative impact that dust can have on a printer's ability to function properly," said the representative. "Using lint-free cloths to clean the inside and outside of the printer will help to maintain print quality and function."

The representative suggested that the easiest way to make sure that the printer is being cleaned regularly is to clean it each time the toner is changed.

The company also suggests that running regular print cleaning cycles through the multifunction printer will help to keep the printer clean.

Another issue raised by the company involves the avoidance of unnecessary wear and tear.

"Excessive and unnecessary printing can cause the premature aging of a machine," said the representative. "There are controls on MFPs that ensure that wasteful printing is eliminated or reduced."

Pacific Office Automation Walnut Creek also suggested that in many cases, outsourcing printer management is an ideal solution.

"We offer managed print services that enable us to track every machine," said the representative. "This allows us to be aware of any issues immediately, at which point we send out a technician to fix the problem as soon as possible."
