If you’re in the market for a new printer, chances are, you’ve done it all before.
You’ve examined the pros and cons of inkjet vs laser printers. You know the functionality required, its paper handling, toner yield and maybe even a little about its noise emissions or power consumption.
But has anyone ever told you about how a simple printer can improve your business, contribute to its culture and drive profits? Probably not.
The days when printers were considered nothing more than a necessary tool, stored in office hallways and cramped printing rooms are gone. The humble printer has evolved into a productivity powerhouse, and new technology is making printers a major contributor to improved office performance and business efficiency.
Using the right features and technology, your printer can provide a detailed snapshot of the printing habits of your business, and can help you reduce inefficient printing processes that cost your business money. To put that in perspective, the Fuji Xerox Office Printing Habits Report found that printing costs can account for up to four per cent of revenue for 90 per cent of Australian SMEs. For a business turning over $800,000 per annum, that’s $32,000 a year.
When purchasing your next printer, don’t think solely about functionality. Take some time to find a device that adds real value to your business and save costs in the long run.
