Evaluate Your Printer Fleet
It’s critical for organizations of any size to maximize their budgets and eliminate wasteful spending. But, do you really know how much your printer fleet is costing your organization? If you put pen to paper, you’d discover that the total budget dollars eaten up printing could stand a reduction.
Where do you start? The costs of managing a printer fleet may appear to be beyond your control to contain. But a printer refresh and consolidation, deploying multi-function devices (MFD), using innovative inks and toners, and simple tips to reduce paper usage can all add up to save your organization a lot of money and free up your budget.
The Wisdom of Printer Refresh
How many older printers are you supporting on your network? The math on a printer refresh is simple. New printers use less power than their older cousins and are also optimized to accept recycled paper. The benefits of reduced paper jams, paper waste, and lost staff productivity will quickly add up to real savings.
Newer, faster printers and MFDs also improve the speed of your work-flow and reduce predictable waste associated with paper-based processes. The less time you spend handling paper and waiting for prints, the more time you can spend engaged in what matters most to your organization. Today’s printers and MFDs deliver faster start up times, print the first page faster, and commonly feature innovative email and scan-to-file capabilities. This minimizes paper use, filing time, and the time and expense required to deliver documents by mail or carrier.
Your Printer Got Smarter!
Today’s printers are configured with many onboard tools to automate budget- saving behaviors, too. Features like automatic duplex printing, web-based printing, and technologies that sense paper type and optimize driver settings, are just a few of the benefits of modern printers. Using these tools will yield quantifiable savings like reductions in ink and paper consumption, and increases in end-user productivity.
