As a leader who is responsible for business performance, you have two ways to improve the bottom line – increase income or reduce costs.
When looking at your costs you can achieve the biggest savings by looking at your biggest expenses – that is pretty much common knowledge. One of your major business expenses is often printing and copying – although you may not even be aware of this.
Why is print & copy costing you more than it should?
How bad is the damage for your business?
Before you can look at saving costs from your print & copy you need to know what you are looking at. You need to know how many devices you have, how many pages are produced on them, and how much this is costing you. You need to keep track of what other expenses you are incurring, what applications the prints are coming from, what is produced in colour, and which users and user groups are responsible for how much of your print volumes.
Only when you have a good understanding of what you have and how it is used can you determine your costs, set goals for cost reductions, and start to manage.
Stay tuned, in our next blogs we will discuss helpful ways how you can analyse your current fleet and the associated cost, then we will outline strategies how you can improve visibility and manageability of your devices and reduce the expenses.
