Trying to figure out “how much a copier costs” can drive you crazy. You can go to all of the manufacturer sites and scroll through all of their products: some have prices; some don't.

I'll use Kyocera copiers as an example and give you an idea of pricing and functionality you can expect based on a range of budgets.

Lethal Weapon: The Office File Cabinet Document Management System

  I stubbed my toe on a filing cabinet the other day (our old document management system). It hurt. But it got me thinking about one of the most basic benefits of document management – getting rid of most (maybe even all) paper documents in an office.
