    Copier or MFP?

    Which name do your prefer, Copier or MFP? I've been starting to use the term MFP more frequently in the past few months and users seem to know what I'm talking about, It might cause the crappy old disrespected copier to bump up a few spots on the technology food chain.

    Sorry, it was a catchphrase we used for that acronym back in the day.

    In almost 35 years I have referred to most of them as POS

    if i called it anything other than a copier my boss might have to give me a raise so in the interest of not looking like a beggar I will stick with copier.

    We were instructed years ago to start referring to all newer digital models as Multi Functional Devices.

    I still call a analogue machine a Copier though (as it is a accurate statement).

    While I prefer MFP or MFD, when I talk to the customer it goes faster if I ask them about their copier or printer.

    I name them according to what I'm talking about. When I'm talking about printing it's a printer, if you need coppying it's a copier, when you're scanning it's a scanner. Who cares that its all the same machine? MFP/MFP just complicates it for most people.

    i would rarher communicate with the customer in the same language. Ricoh likes to call the copiers MFD, everybody else MFP but customers will always call them "copier"
