For any business, growth is a good sign. If your business was fortunate enough to exceed its targets for the last fiscal year, you may be thinking of capitalizing on this growth by expanding your workforce. And you’re not alone. According to Vistage’s most recent CEO Confidence Index, 61 percent of CEOs of American small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) plan to expand their workforce this year.
There’s a lot that you can do to ensure that your office is equipped to handle the challenges that can come with managing an influx of new hires, as well as a larger workload. Let’s examine a few ways that Samsung’s multi-function printers (MFPs) cater to growing businesses like yours.
Seize This Opportunity
Before we dig into the printers’ role in offices’ growth, it’s important to note that workforce expansion presents a terrific opportunity for businesses to add efficiency to their infrastructure.
If you are considering growing your workforce, before making any big changes, take a long, hard look at your existing staff and processes. Careful evaluation of whether employees are working as effectively as possible and their talents are being put to good use will help ensure that the departments that need help get it, and that those that could do with some restructuring are streamlined appropriately.
Doing this will not only enhance your business’s workflow – it will also enable new employees to transition more smoothly.
Pick a Printer That Powers Productivity
Incorporating more employees and processes into your workflow ultimately means more work for your printer.
Over time, the additional reams of documents, reports, meeting materials and more will add up, and place your printer’s performance to the test. The ability to handle large workloads quickly and easily makes Samsung’s MultiXpress SL-X7500LX ideal for expanding businesses.
The printer’s high-capacity side and bottom feeders hold up to 6,140 pages, which makes it more than capable of handling growing businesses’ increasing print demands. Other productivity-powering features include the device’s powerful, quad-core 1.5 GHz CPU, which makes it twice as fast as conventional, dual-core MFPs, and a Dual-Scan Document Feeder that offers brisk scanning speeds of up to 240 images per minute. ¹
Make Room for New Talent
The printer’s speedy Dual-Scan Document Feeder is particularly useful when it comes to one of the most practical (and important) matters for growing businesses to consider: finding space to accommodate their new hires.
One way to free up room (and enhance efficiency at the same time) is by getting rid of those space-hogging filing cabinets by digitizing documents. The MultiXpress SL-X7500LX’s combination of ultra-fast scanning speeds and the Smart UX Center allows you to digitize and catalog important documents quickly and easily. This means that you can reclaim that precious space while also implementing a more efficient document management system.
From there, the platform’s dynamic workflow solutions – including the aptly titled Dynamic Workflow app – make it easy to send digitized documents to their proper destinations.
The Smart UX platform is absolutely packed with intuitive apps and tools that can help businesses like yours remain productive throughout the expansion process.
As simple as it sounds, one of the most effective ways to help your growing workforce maintain efficiency is to minimize repetitive tasks. Document Workflow Core, a key component of the Smart UX Center’s Business Core suite, helps make it easy for offices to reduce repetition by streamlining their workflow through automation.
Document Workflow Core offers a simple infrastructure for repetitive digital document handling. Featuring one-click scanning and distribution tools that allow you to automatically organize and send documents, the solution enables businesses with increasing workloads to reduce the amount of labor required to manage a wide range of paperwork.
Samsung’s updated Zone OCR (optical character recognition) technology helps make Document Workflow Core even more efficient, allowing the solution to automatically categorize scans or in-bound faxed documents by barcode, caller ID and metadata, and save them as editable, searchable files.
If your office is in the middle of an expansion, congratulations! Set your new staff up for success by adopting a printer that can keep up with your business’s growing needs.
