Almost all industries rely on office technology such as printers, copiers, fax machines, scanners, or multi-function devices (MFPs) to keep their business processes functioning at high capacity.
Helping small businesses weather the economic fallout from the COVID-19 pandemic is a priority for state and local governments. Millions of SMBs around the country had to shutter their doors and will need financial support to remain in business after the pandemic. As of 2018, there were 30.2 million small businesses (with less than 500 employees) operating in the United States. SMBs account for 99.9% of all U.S. businesses and employ 49.2% of the nation’s workforce.

The first is simply that printers, copiers, faxes machines, and all of their many capabilities have also evolved dramatically over the past ten years. Just like with computers, these devices – and how they’re used – need to be effectively managed through a network.
