  • Most of the CFO’s we work with are looking for meaningful strategies to control overhead expenses in today’s tough economy. At the same time, they need to find ways to boost productivity and return on assets. The challenge is that these two goals are usually at odds. Boosting productivity usually means new costs while controlling expenses means harming productivity. Every so often, a strategy appears that allows you to control expenses without negatively impacting productivity. Our experience has shown us that this is possible by optimizing your office printing environment which starts with better managing your output fleet.
  • There are many issues impacting businesses today and some of these are related to documents and the output devices. A few of the issues we find in common when speaking to customers are that: Companies have more document output devices then ever before. The related cost of printing is rising at a rate much higher then the cost of the printed page. The increases in volume results in an increased cost related to usage, management and administration of the fleet, negatively affecting productivity and requiring more resources. Many companies are seeking reasonable measures they can take to protect the planet by selecting partners and products that reduce their carbon footprint. IT departments suffer from an increasing support requirement related to printers. Today, I would like to take a few minutes to explain some steps that have proven to help control the rising costs while reducing your burden for managing the output fleet while being sensitive to the environment.

  • Fortunately, there is a better way. The CFO’s we work with were excited to learn about our managed print services strategy that helps them manage expenses, boost productivity and free up IT resources along with minimizing their carbon footprint. Let’s discuss how this might work for you.
  • A strategy that has proven to control costs is managed print services. Rather then companies buying print devices, the supplies, and the services separately and then trying to manage it themselves, the recommendation is to outsource the management of the devices and buy the end result which is the printed pages. One monthly invoice for the pages printed reduces the number of purchase transactions and administration of the fleet, and proper management will reduce waste and protect the investment of printing assets
  • Recycling toner cartridges and paper are proven step towards contributing to the environment by reducing the amount of raw materials and electricity in the manufacturing process and well as the reduction of landfill space and greenhouse gases from incinerating. Fortunately, many companies are realizing that going green also helps them save money.
  • A proper managed print services program will provide for proactive maintenance by trained technicians and management of the supplies inventory, increasing availability of devices and reducing delays associated with broken devices or missing supply items.
  • A managed print service of value will include 24/7 remote monitoring of print devices and reporting of device status and errors. This allows for the appropriate corrective action to be taken with out the user involving IT is the process. Further, reducing IT’s involvement with printers allows them to focus on the department’s core initiatives and reduce the cost of completing IT projects.

  • The following is a simple four step strategy to optimizing your printer fleet which should result in controlling costs and increasing efficiencies. Here are the first two steps
  • Here is the balance of the strategy
  • In order to adopt a Managed Print Strategy for your business, there are a couple of steps to consider. First, you will need an assessment of your current printing environment to determine what you have, what you are doing with it, and what it is really costing When that phase is complete, a report that includes the facts and findings needs to be published and reviewed to determined what steps should be employed to control costs and improve productivity. Usually, better management of the existing assets is a good place to start. We would like to help you in this endeavor to create an implement and effective strategy Can you see the value in this offer?

    • 2. Let’s start with some questions… <ul><li>You know how much you spend on equipment – how about supplies ? </li></ul><ul><li>When you thought about supplies, did you consider inventory carrying costs? </li></ul><ul><li>Did you consider the time it takes to find the part number and order it? </li></ul><ul><li>How about shipping ? </li></ul><ul><li>And what about color?
