Purchase equipment that will last

We get "new" equipment that wears out within one year and needs to be replaced constantly. If a cost analysis were done, it would be better to get a more expesive, but better quality printer/copier/fax/etc. than a less expensive but lesser quality one. The better quality one will outlast the "cheap" one and will likely save money over time.

Automatic Fax scanning machines

We receive a large amount of faxes from new and current FEMA applicants, and they are scanned in by hand which takes much time, effort, and energy. Why don't we use a service which allows all faxes to be scanned in automatically to individual files and they would be reviewed by individuals for accuaracy?
