MULTIFUNCTION PRINTERS | 2 MIN READ
There have been many words used to describe a multifunction printer in the past. More than likely, you already know what it is but didn't realize it.
What is a Multifunction Printer?
Today, MFPs do so much more than copy and print documents. A true multifunction printer also scans, emails, faxes, and can even browse the internet and print straight from the display panel (like a computer). Most multifunction printers will also include the option of including finishers that can staple, fold, make booklets, hole punch, and can also print directly from mobile devices.
It is unlikely that people will ever get away from calling these machines copiers, but as you can see, multifunction printers are appropriately named due to their extensive functionality and capabilities that have evolved over the years.
