Break Your Leases and Start Renting Without Commitments

Posted by Bob Loblaw on Tue, Mar 19, 2019

Ditch your leases and rent instead! Why? Because no commitments, no hassles, no stress! As a new business owner, or even a well-established one, it makes perfect sense to consider rentals. Leasing equipment generally makes it yours to own eventually, but you end up with a depreciated asset; and in a technological business world, it's imperative to keep your equipment updated.

Buying a brand new copier, multi-function printer, or other piece of office equipment can be a huge expense. Plus, maintenance on those same pieces of equipment can add up to costly repairs in a short period of time. If you’re not ready to take that risk, or you want the peace of mind that comes with not having to worry about untimely repairs or maintenance, renting is the best course of action for you.

How to Clean a Fujitsu Scanner

Posted by Bob Loblaw on Fri, May 06, 2016


Please note this post is about a specific fi-7160 Fujitsu Scanner.
Your Fujitsu scanner might be a different model, but it should be similar in many respects.

It's really a simple concept that you need to understand. Imagine that you wear glasses (if you don't). Your glasses need to be cleaned daily to see properly. They get dust and smudges and so on. There are lenses inside your scanner that need to be cleaned often for good performance. Merely taking a swab and a pad cleaner from the Scanaid cleaning kit and wiping down lenses, pads, rollers, etc. every so often will keep your scanner in top form, and it might take you all of 30 to 60 seconds!
