By Higher Information Group on August 8, 2023 | Office Solutions

Effective maintenance of business equipment, such as multifunction printers (MFPs), wide-format and production printers, is essential for optimizing efficiency, reducing downtime, and minimizing costs. However, not all service providers follow the best practices for achieving these goals. Many may engage in unnecessary servicing or parts replacement, resulting in inflated expenses without tangible returns on investment. In this blog post, we'll explore the benefits of proper equipment maintenance and how the HIG approach stands out by following industry-leading practices.
