Sharp's line of multifunction copiers allow businesses to scan, print, copy and fax, all from one machine. These machines create more efficient work environments, especially in small business offices that may not have the space or resources for multiple machines. One multifunction machine also curbs the cost of maintenance, having to buy supplies and provide repair service for the one machine rather than multiple machines. Connecting a Sharp copier to a computer is similar to connecting any printer.
