Unfortunately for us, when Business Week introduced the term in 1975, the predicted ETA was 1985. Apparently, the paperless office is stuck in a space-time continuum that's forever just ten years away.
It's not really a problem in the traditional sense of the word. Paper is still relevant, and despite technological advances that put digital processes literally at our fingertips, we still like to read and process information on paper.
It's also no secret that the pervasiveness of the printer, both in the office and at home, has put that PRINT button conveniently close at hand. While we used to buy paper in stacks of a hundred or so sheets, now nearly everyone buys it by the ream or case, even for home use.
Paper usage in the office isn't going away anytime soon, but that doesn't mean it needs to cost your business a small fortune.
Speaking of costs, do you know how much your organization spends on printing? Most businesses don't have a process on hand to track printing volumes or the related costs, so the numbers are vague at best.
Managed Print provides companies with real solutions to reduce their print-related costs. Here's how:
Ongoing data reporting shows clearly defined print costs, including how much is printed down to the department and device.
Automatic supply reordering reduces the hassle of keeping bulky supply cabinets stocked and inventoried.
Remote monitoring and regular maintenance of your devices keeps downtimes to a minimum.
Fleet right-sizing and strategic placement helps to optimize your workflows.
Solutions to save paper and toner keep wasteful spending at bay.
Industry trained expert technicians keep your devices in top condition.
One invoice for all print-related costs keeps things simple.
