The office environment is changing, which means technology needs to change, too. With office print volumes declining and worker smore mobile than ever, 30 or more workers sharing a centralized copier and printer may not be the best office configuration to support social distancing efforts. A much more manageable employee to device ratio could help ease employee concerns. To help improve employee output and productivity, Brother recommends a Balanced Deployment approach, which means placing the appropriate number and type of devices within proximity to the people who actually use them. This approach reduces employee interactions by decreasing the number of people sharing the same device. This solution delivers smaller, more flexible “pods” comprised of a number of commercial-grade Brother printers, all-in-ones and scanners. Brother recommends up to four people per printing “pod” to encourage social distancing.
