Paper and ink… how much can that cost, really?
Quite a lot, actually: anyone who owns a home printer has experienced the sticker shock of seeing just how much a matchbook-sized printer ink cartridge can somehow cost.
That sticker shock is multiplied many times over when you’re printing for a business and not for home use. The actual figure varies wildly depending on the size of your business and the industry you belong to. One stat believed to be an accurate ballpark figure by printing experts is that you can expect to spend about 2% of your annual revenue on printing.
Managed print services (MPS) will cut those costs and more. We like to call the benefits of MPS the “three saves”.
- Save money: a lot of businesses aren’t aware of just how much printing is costing them… in fact; a lot of them don’t even know how many printers they have. Using MPS will cut the fat and optimize your infrastructure, saving you an average of 25 – 50% on printing-related expenses.
- Save time: by outsourcing your printing needs, you’ll have more time to take care of all the other tasks that are required to keep your business running smoothly and sustain growth.
- Save yourself from unauthorized access: believe it or not, your printers can be a security risk. More and more business are using wireless printers, and if they’re unsecured, cybercriminals might be able to view the documents your printing. You use a shredder for sensitive documents, right? Kyocera Intelligence will make sure prying eyes can’t see what’s being printed on your printers.
Printer problems can be incredibly frustrating… just ask the guys from Office Space. But don’t be inspired by those characters and deal with this issue with a baseball bat (however cathartic it may be, this just isn’t a productive solution).
A MPS will take care of printer problems for you and save you a lot of money, so you can leave the bats at home.
