As Cartridge World explains, many small businesses are neglecting to track their printer usage, to their own cost, and the company has offered a number of reasons why such tracking can be crucial.
With “wasteful printing habits” having the potential to “severely” affect a business’s bottom line, and with printing listed as the “third highest office expenditure”, small establishments could help cut down their costs by keeping a close eye on their printer usage.
Here are just a few of the reasons why:
1.Improved productivity and efficiency
As CW explains, as well as the “concrete cost savings” you can make by checking and optimising the usage of your company’s printers, you will also benefit financially and productively. Keeping on top of printer usage will cut down on technology malfunctions, “inefficient printing habits” and overuse of paper documents.
Environmental issues are a pressing societal concern these days, and printing is just such an issue, as the “average employee prints 10,000 sheets of paper a year”, equivalent to the loss of an entire tree. If your company is unable to go paperless, it is therefore imperative that you monitor your printer usage to cut down on unnecessary paper use in order to save more trees and aid the environment.
3.It’s simple to do
By partnering with the right MPS provider, keeping on top of your company printers is no hard task and means avoiding “the significant time investment” of monitoring, while simultaneously “realising impressive long-term returns”.
This is because MPS providers can help small businesses “save up to 30 percent almost immediately on print-related expenses” and allow companies to “achieve all the operational benefits that come with tracking your print usage, without all the hassle of doing it yourself.”
