A combination of photocopying, printing and scanning needs to be done in most schools and businesses, with many running several small printers for printing documents, a photocopier for copying documents and separate desktop scanners for scanning documents. Now that most photocopiers are multifunctional and can be connected to the print server, is it necessary to still also run desktop printers, or can it be more cost effective and still convenient to re-route all, or at least most, printing to the photocopier and get rid of desktop devices
