  • Use the right software: Use the correct drivers and software for your printer or copier, and ensure they are up to date. This helps ensure that the machine operates at its best and that any security vulnerabilities are addressed.
  • Be mindful of energy usage: Turn off the printer or copier when not in use to save energy and reduce operating costs.
  • Keep up with technology: Stay up to date with new technology and features that may be available for your printer or copier. This can help improve productivity and efficiency in the workplace.
