The gapTCO is an intuitive, graphical user experience designed to allow simple and easy analysis of the Total Cost of Ownership of printer and MFP devices. This month’s edition compares the Xerox VersaLink C7020D, Epson WorkForce Pro WF-C869R, HP Color LaserJet Managed MFP E77830dn and Muratec MFX-C2880N.
gapTCO includes both printer-based products and copier-based MFP devices and offers two Sales Model types: Cartridge (CPP) and Contract (CPC). CPP rates are based on consumables usage. CPC rates include the cost of all consumables and maintenance and are not impacted by consumable usage.
