Benefits

With our contract already handling more than 10,000 copiers in schools across the South East, we must be doing something right. With no complicated financial leases to sign, terms and conditions designed to protect you and comprehensive assistance & support from the dedicated KCS copiers team for the lifetime of the machine, it isn't hard to see why so many establishments are putting their confidence in us to handle their multifunctional copier and printer needs.



Before contacting KCS, or any copy equipment supplier for a quotation, ask yourself the following questions. They will help to narrow your copier choices and guide you toward the correct equipment for your needs.

Colour copiers have a higher running cost than mono copiers: they typically have four toner cartridges compared to a mono copier's single cartridge. If you only require occasional colour printing, the copier can be set to default to mono; this will keep your running costs down

A multifunction device connected to your network will immediately start saving you money: by printing directly from your computer to the copier, you will no longer need to purchase printer cartridges or toner for your desktop printers. Documents can be quickly scanned into a networked copier and sent to recipients via email. Many copiers can store regularly produced documents on an internal hard drive, ready to be quickly reprinted on demand without the need to re-scan them (if you choose to have a hard drive fitted to your printer, please see the Security page of this website). Add a fax board to your networked multi-functional device to save money on extra fax cartridges. Network installation is free of charge, you simply need to provide an accesible network point and (where required) fax line.

The speed of the photocopier is related to the volume it can handle, so it helps to know its copying volume when looking to change. This information can typically be found on your invoices.

Low to mid volume copiers usually have two paper trays fitted as standard, plus a bypass tray. Is this enough, or will you require extra trays: e.g. for A4R or letterheaded paper? If there is likely to be a large number of A4 copies being made, you should also consider an LCT (large capacity tray).

Most machines will offset or sort printed sets of documents as standard, but many also offer staple finishing and saddle stitching (folding documents in half and stapling in the centre to form booklets).
