Essential Office Equipment

There is a lot of equipment you need for a productive office. What you need depends on the type of business you’re running. For example, if you’re running a cake decorating business from your home, your office necessities will vary compared to running a staffing agency from an office building.

My preference for an office has electronics with technology that is one step down from the newest technology, because when new technology hits the market, it’s expensive, and the manufacturer may still need to iron out some of the new features.

When you use technology that is one or two steps down from the latest, the price is better, and the functionality is proven. Naturally, if I need the newest tech because it preforms something that I need, then I’ll get that, but as a rule of thumb for me, one or two steps down works.

There are benefits to buying used equipment, the price being the most obvious. For me, I don’t like to purchase used equipment. I prefer new, especially when it comes to electronics, but I have a passion for offices and electronics. So buying used may be the right choice depending on the needs, situation, and condition of the equipment.

When it comes to setting up your office, you want to make sure you have everything organized available, and in good working order. You can’t spend precious time on daily tasks because your equipment is slow or malfunctioning.
