What is a MFP?

An office machine which incorporates several functions in one unit. The most common are print, scan to file and/or email, copy, and fax. 


Why are we moving towards MFP’s instead of local or network printers?

There are several reasons to move toward MFP’s and away from local and/or network printers.  
  • MFPs are efficient and cost effective
  • Local printers are cheap to acquire but costly to use
  • Network printer numbers can be reduced by strategically placed MFPs, freeing up valuable classroom space


What happens to network and/or local printers?

We will look to shift print to MFPs from network and local printers where possible. The old devices will then be retired.


What are the standard new print devices?

Standard devices can be viewed by visiting our website – Alvernia Print Portal.


What is the refresh cycle for devices?

Refresh cycle for MFP and network printers is 4 years. Local printers vary by the manufacturer recommended lifecycle.


How do I request a new MFP for my department?

Put in a service request ticket and Support Services will be in contact with you.
