A key staple of most small enterprises, multifunction copiers (MFC) have helped businesses print, send, receive and duplicate documents for decades. Since these machines occupy so much valuable real estate in an office, it’s important to invest in a reliable model that fits your operational needs. From proficiency and versatility to print speeds, print and copy resolutions, and overall usability; there’s a ton to consider. Here are some of our top choices for 2022.
