Office technology essentials that boost productivity
What makes a modern office run? While no office is complete without competent professionals to run it, those professionals' lives are made much easier with the addition of cutting-edge office technology. Walmart's selection of office technology products includes essentials that small businesses and large enterprises alike can use to make day-to-day tasks easier, improve technology setups and make processes more modern for clients. Whether you're a sole practitioner working out of your home or the manager of a large firm with hundreds of team members, our Every Day Low Prices make your office operations easier to maintain and manage.
How to choose the right office technology for your needs
There are several different categories and types of equipment in this section, and some businesses may need some of these products more than others. if you aren't quite sure what office technology items might be best for your needs, consider these factors.
Financial transactions and cash security
How do your customers and clients pay you? If you're in a retail or restaurant setting, chances are that you need some sort of point of sale technology, such as a cash register or mobile card scanner plugin, to make these transactions possible. Our collection of cash registers, safes and lockboxes makes accepting credit cards and cash much easier and safer than it would be without the use of modern technology. We offer popular mobile solutions, such as wireless card readers in addition to traditional cash registers, so you can select the format that's right for how you do business. If you tend to move around to different venues, a mobile card reader may be a better choice for you, while businesses that have static locations may prefer a cash register. If you want to accept cash without a register or keep petty cash on hand in the office without worrying about theft, a safe or lockbox is a helpful solution. You can also keep business credit cards, checkbooks and other valuables in your safe or lockbox for added convenience.
Computer-free calculation and typing
While many professionals rely on laptop or desktop computers to perform their business tasks, graphing calculators and typewriters still have their place in the modern office. Whether it's force of habit or you're trying to minimize distractions, a standalone calculator or typewriter can give you the tech solution you need. Calculators and typewriters are an especially good idea if digital eye strain or distraction is an issue for you or any of your employees. You'll be able to complete work that needs to get done without interfacing with a computer screen.
While cybersecurity is a major concern, it's still important to take proper security precautions with printed documents, too. From confidential employee information, such as social security numbers, contact information, salary data and health info, to the details of client cases and contracts, it's important to properly dispose of paper documents that contain sensitive or private information. Walmart's Office Technology department includes a variety of different paper shredders that you can choose from to suit your office's document security needs. If you shred a large volume of documents with great frequency, choose one of our commercial-grade or high-capacity models that can handle 300 sheets or more in one pass. If you shred documents less frequently, you can opt for a smaller-capacity model with a maximum sheet allowance of 5 20.
Scanning and printing
The ability to digitize and create physical documents can be essential for businesses that continue to rely on paper contracts and other physical documentation. Our Office Technology offerings include scanners and printers both as standalone and all-in-one tools. Even if you don't tend to have a need for document scanning, it's a good idea to purchase a multifunctional printer that includes both copying and scanning features. It's the sort of equipment you'll be glad to have when you need it, and many all-in-one printers are quite affordable, meaning you won't have to spend a lot more to have these useful features included in your purchase. Choose from inkjet, laser and photo printers based on your needs. If you tend to print large volumes of black-and-white documents, choose a laser printer. If you tend to print documents with color text and graphics, an inkjet model is your best option. If photo-quality printing is a requirement for your business, a commercial-grade photo printer may be a worthwhile investment.
Presentations are often a major element in business success, particularly for companies that gain clients through visual proposals. Walmart's Office Technology product offerings in this category include a range of different modern presentation solutions for businesses that want to present the right face to prospective clients and industry peers. We have portable and pull-down projection screen equipment that you can choose from based on whether you tend to present at your office or your clients'. Portable projectors are also available if you need to be able to make presentations on the go. If your presentations include complex graphics or charts, you can also find laser pointers in this section that help you emphasize the right parts of your presentation slides. If your presentations tend to be less visual and more vocal, choose a collapsible tripod stand that can give you the foundation you need to present physical posters and other presentation materials.
