Reduce Printing Costs
The first step is to determine the Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) of your existing printer environment.
We complete an assessment of your current printer fleet. Through this assessment key questions are answered:
- What types of documents are being printed?
- Which departments and users print the most documents and how often?
- What is the calculated cost per document printed?
- What goals are not being met?
Your document assessment will provide your company with an analysis of device usage related to daily business processes. An accurate print assessment will show:
- Collection of printing statistics
- Benchmark metrics for better decision making
- Recommendations for creating a better print environment
Once we have determined the Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) of your printer fleet, we can work together to develop strategies to control these costs and meet your business objectives.
We often find printer, copier and fax devices in the same room. Sometimes there is a business reason for this redundant cost. Other times it may make sense to consolidate the devices with a multifunction system to reduce the cost of electricity, supplies and support contracts for multiple devices.
During the print assessment we often discover high capacity print devices in low usage areas. We can help you rationalize redeployment of these devices to high usage areas, helping to reduce your costs.
Print Job Routing
Some devices cost more to operate than others. It makes sense to send high volume print jobs to low cost devices. Our Print Routing software lets you create and enforce printing rules. For example, jobs over 20 pages can be routed to a network printer instead of a desktop printer. Users are notified of the move and the reason for it.
Business needs continually evolve. Your printing needs will change as your business changes.
These areas for improvement may include:
- Technology Refresh
It may make sense to refresh your technology with newer printer and multifunction (copy, print, scan, fax) devices that use less power and enhance productivity. We can help you refresh devices as needed inside your cost-per-page program, eliminating the need for a capital expenditure.
- Workflow Optimization
The Managed Print Services program initially looks at the flow of documents through your output devices. We can help you take the program to the next level by looking at the flow of information through your business processes. Workflow can be optimized by applying our suite of document solutions applications to enhance your business.
