You might be wondering why we mentioned that the kits come with an 8GB USB flash drive. Yealink doesn’t charge you for call recording. In fact, they’ve included call recording or screenshots to USB stick directly into the codec unit. You just need to plug your flash drive into the back, and you’re good to go.

It’s little details like that get us excited about the Yealink VC400 Video Conferencing System. Yealink never charges you for features that you deserve.

In a nutshell, the Yealink VC400 gives you what you want. And you can test it for no money at all.

Is the Yealink VC400 for Me?

Let’s say you’re curious, but you’re not quite ready for the risk-free trial. How do you know if the Yealink VC400 Video Conferencing System is for you?

Video conferencing is appreciated by companies not only for the fact that it eliminates nearly all of your unnecessary travel, but also because it increases your efficiency and productivity. You can get in touch with people more rapidly and with a wider geographic range, allowing you to develop more intimate connections with more clients—the foundation of a good business. Workers also love video conferencing, because it simplifies scheduling and gives them flexibility.

For reasons like these, it’s been estimated that by as early as next year, video conferencing is going to supplant email and phones as the primary mode of business collaboration.

Video conferencing is becoming standard practice for businesses of all sizes.

The Yealink VC400 Video Conferencing System is, in our opinion, particularly well suited to small-to-midsize businesses (SMBs). Why do we say that?

Why and When to Upgrade Your Old Printer

Ah… your trusty old printer. When it’s not jammed, it’s out of toner—it’s that reliable. Or maybe I’m just cynical.

Frankly, printers are amazing machines. When you think about the intricate processes, all the technical and computing innovations, that were required to print out your report it’s quite something.

But, man oh man, is it frustrating when you’re opening panels, pulling out yet another twisted and ruined sheet. Then you leave a sliver of paper on the roller. Then the next sheet gets stuck to it. Then you have to open the panels again.

You ask yourself: Is it time to upgrade my printer?

When Should I Replace My Printer?

The biggest question to consider when thinking about upgrading your printer is this:

Does it cost more to repair my printer or to replace it?

This is a complicated question. If you repair your printer today but in a year it simply won’t work no matter what, it would probably have been better to get a new one. You can see: we’re talking about total cost of ownership (TCO).

TCO is notoriously tough to calculate. After all, we can’t predict the future, and TCO demands that we act on what we think is going to happen. TCO also demands that you take into account a large variety of factors.

We’re going to go over a number of these factors, starting with estimating maintenance costs.

Maintenance

How do you estimate maintenance costs? It’s tough, but you can estimate it to a certain extent.

The primary cost associated with maintaining a printer come from consumables: paper, toner, ink. Thus, if you can reduce the number of consumables that you use, you’ll save money. If your old printer is wasteful, making you use more consumables than you should be using, you can save a lot of money in the long run by upgrading to a more efficient and reliable printer.

Cost per page (CPP). By comparing how much money you spend on printing with your current printer with the CPPs provided by manufacturers, you’ll be able to plot how much or how little you will save by upgrading your printer.

Manufacturers typically provide CPP for their models. If not, you’ll need two pieces of information:

1. The price of your ink or toner cartridge

2. How many pages you print on average before replacing the cartridge.

By dividing the first number by the second, you get your CPP. CPP is thus a very useful statistic that’s easy to determine. If your CPP is, in your opinion, unacceptably high compared to the CPP of newer models, you should consider upgrading your printer.

Obviously, you don’t only spend money on consumables. There’s also support services, such as repairs.

Repairs. Repairs are almost impossible to predict, unfortunately. You do know some things. If your printer is older, it’s probably more likely to break down. Parts from older machines might be out of stock or expensive to obtain. If you haven’t been cleaning your printer regularly, it’s more likely to fail. In fact, one thing to consider instead of upgrading your printer is to maintain it regularly.

Managed services. One way to save on maintenance costs is to have someone come and check on your printer on a regular basis. For example, TriTech offers printer maintenance contracts, according to which our authorized technicians will keep your printer running as well as it can.

In other words, you’re paying a little to save a lot. How much easier is it to clean a bathtub once a week instead of letting a ring of calcified residue, old soap and mildew develop then trying to put it right in a rush? This is the idea behind managed services. By using managed services you can extend the lifespan of your printer. You’ll also keep the quality of your print jobs as high as your printer will handle.

Quality

When you’re looking at what your printer spits out and you think, once again, “This should be better,” it’s time to go shopping. When you see, for example, the vast improvements in color laser printing technology, it’s hard not to get a bit jealous.

And, frankly, if the quality of your printer is no longer professional, you should consider upgrading your printer. Your enterprise needs to present itself in the best possible light that you can afford. It’s very common advice for job-seekers that they should never print their resumes out from an inkjet. The bleeding of the ink makes letters blurry. The crisp letters that a laser printer makes look so much better.

Laser v Inkjet. This is one of those classic questions: should I get an inkjet or a laser printer? Here’s the common answer:

• Pictures. If you print out a lot of pictures, get an inkjet.

• Text. If you print out mostly text, get a laser.

If you have an old inkjet and you’re buying cartridge after cartridge, you’re wasting money. Although a laser printer and its cartridges are more expensive individually, the cartridges last much longer. Besides, laser printers are generally quicker than inkjet printers. You’ll save a lot of time that you were spending waiting. And time is your most precious resource.

Other Considerations

When considering when to upgrade your printer, here are some other common features to keep in mind.

Multifunction printer (MFP). If your office still has a separate photocopier, scanner, fax machine and printer, it could be time to unify them. A multifunction printer (MFP) is your machine. They are very popular nowadays. They save space, they save headache.

Printing queue. If you find that there’s always a backlog of print-jobs in your office and that your printer handles them poorly, either with lost jobs or massive delays, you should look to replacing your printer with one that has the memory and power to organize the multiple print-jobs.

Remember: time is your most precious resource. Articles on stress reduction in offices emphasize the little things that make workers happy. If you can improve your office atmosphere by upgrading your printer, why would you not do it?

Duplex printing. One of the best ways to save money on paper and reduce your consumption is to integrate duplex printing into your everyday printing environment. If your current printer doesn’t print on both sides of the paper, you should look into one that does. Duplex printing is becoming a standard feature for enterprise-grade printers because of its environmental and economical advantages.

WiFi. With bring your own device (BYOD) culture on the rise, your office should strongly consider getting a printer with wireless capability. Wireless access will allow your employees to print from whatever device they use, whether that’s smartphone, tablet, laptop or desktop.
