I remember the world before multi-functional printers…do you? Granted I was a child, but getting to go to the office with my mom on a snow day was a real treat! And what better way to keep your kid busy, then by making them the office helper? It was my first job. I was paid $8 an hour; a tremendous sum for the time & my age!
Soon I became the well known “copy girl” on those cold snowy days. I would come in early with my mom, take over the chilly grey conference room, and would go to work sorting, copying, creating & stapling packets, inserting colorful pastel note sheets and then faxing the files off to who knows where.
Ahhh…I digress. Back to my point… I remember the day before “print, copy, staple & fax” were just a button click away. Then as I got a little older, I came across the first machine I had seen that could do it all! Made me want to shout, “Eureka!” as if I had made a great discovery.
That was quite a few years ago…perhaps longer ago than I’d like to admit . But multi-function printers have now been around for some time and they have unquestionably changed the way we do business. No longer a novelty in the office (remember that scene from AMC’s MadMen?) – they may not be the sexy new attraction of the office any longer…but that doesn’t mean they aren’t still one of the best investments an organization can make!
And believe it or not… thanks to #Xerox they even still have a few new tricks up their sleeves. Check out this article by Viveca Woods,
Who knows…you might just discover your own “Eureka!” moment.
A fun story from my childhood brings to light this under appreciated hero.
After all…every once in a while, it’s nice to share some humor! Enjoy. -CRL, Marketing Manager
