A comprehensive, itemised and pre-planned budget used to be a goal to aim for, now it’s a must have no matter what size of business you are. Anyone serious about getting their business’ budget under control will want receipts and an explanation for every line item. So why are so many companies still lumping their printing and photocopying costs all together as just “office supplies” or something similar. A 2017 survey found that 90% of businesses don’t track their printing at all.
This problem becomes even larger when dealing with organisations which have multiple locations as each one may have a level of discretion as to how they use and account for their printing resources. Keeping track of everything related to print can be troublesome, especially when you have to track:
- Power consumption
- Print related staffing costs
Managed Print Services
Without the full picture of your business’ print environment you are constantly put in the position of being reactive rather than proactive. A Managed Print Service takes the management of your print environment out of your hands and provides you with a predictable and consistent monthly or quarterly cost for your printing. Switching to a Managed Print environment also gives you statistics about your printing use. For the first time you’ll be able to see reports detailing the use of resources across your organisation, allowing you to plan better and see where improvements could be made that could save money, time and the environment!
Unless you’re 100% sure that your organisation’s printing is trackable, efficient, itemised, eco-friendly and that there’s no room for improvement we would recommend speaking to one of our team.
