Most people only have to perform a very limited number of relatively simple functions on the printer itself. And most of them have no idea how to do it. Imagine how much easier the life of your IT support staff and managers would be if people could work out how to do things for themselves.

And imagine how much paper, toner, energy and time you could save if you could cut out the mistakes. The problem is that the user interface of the average office printer is based on the ones that were originally designed for the reprographics specialist of the 1980s. The good news is that a new generation of interface is emerging based on the same principles as the mobile devices and tablets we all use every day.

The user interface is crucial when choosing a printing solution. And if the interface is intuitive, your choice can be too.
