Setting up a new office can be far more complex--and expensive--than it used to be in the past. In addition to traditional staples (no pun intended) like notepads, pens and calendars, putting together a modern office requires some heavy investment in electronic equipment. The good news is that the types of equipment that you absolutely have to have are getting cheaper and cheaper every year.

Office Electronics Necessities

No office would be complete without a telephone, and these days you have more choices than ever when you go to buy one. One of the newer types of communications technology is the IP network telephone, which actually allows you to make calls and hold video conferences using the Internet. This can save your business the cost of having to pay long distance charges for all of your calls.

Fax machines and copiers are pretty much a requisite for any type of office, and if you're looking to buy one or both you might want to consider a combination model. Combo fax, scanner and copier machines can save you money--and space--by having one machine instead of three. These combination machines are usually not quite as good as the top-end individual models, but they will do just fine for the average office user.

These days, virtually no one in the business world can do without a computer. We use them for communicating with fellow employees and customers, for placing and taking orders, and even for designing products. Purchasing computers for your office is best done all at once, so you can be sure that you have system that is fully integrated from top to bottom.
