Business Owners: Improve Your Bottom Line With These Printing Cost Saving Tips

Posted by Anthony Toope May 1, 2014 at 3:00 PM

Running a lean, efficient and profitable business is often an elusive goal that many business owners are forever chasing, with limited time, budget and resources affecting their ability to achieve desired results.

In an effort to improve profits, often business owners will consider reducing headcount or overhead expenses, with both of these cost saving strategies possibly having a negative impact on productivity and morale.  

Keeping your existing printer or copier may seem like a sensible decision, rather than investing in a new office solution, but have you really weighed up the cost benefit of keeping old infrastructure v’s investing in a new solution.

The purpose of this article is to share some of the real “hidden” costs of running the office infrastructure like printers and copiers, for your business, and what the possible cost saving solution may be.

6 Ways SMEs Can Improve Their Business With Managed Print Services

Posted by Michelle Rochford April 3, 2014 at 3:00 PM

In an effort to improve profits, often business owners will consider reducing headcount or overhead expenses, with both of these cost saving strategies possibly having a negative impact on productivity and morale. When SMEs seek cost savings and efficiency gains, the solution is often no further than the nearest office printer. The typical office output infrastructure—copy, fax, scan and print—offers significant opportunities for SMEs to improve business efficiencies and cost savings.

While you may not have this many printers, a common stumbling block for SMEs is knowing what their current printer position looks like, or even having time to set a baseline.  An audit of your existing fleet will give you an idea of your current state, and where productivity and cost savings can occur.  Working with an MPS partner who can undertake this audit on your behalf and provide an accurate report of your fleet is a good first step.

Budget 2013: Time To Start Budgeting For Your Own Business

Posted by Anthony Toope May 17, 2013 at 2:15 AM

 

Small and medium sized businesses (SMBs) throughout the country waited with bated breath this week to find out what the 2013 federal budget had in store. Wayne Swan’s sixth budget was quite tight and while there were no drastic cuts, there was little good news for small business. In fact the general sentiment is that SMBs were somewhat left out of the equation.

If you’re a small business owner, you are probably already feeling the effects of the high dollar and weak consumer spending; an increased tax burden next year is likely to add to business costs. The budget reply this week may shed more light on what will happen in the year ahead.

It wasn’t all bad news however with the promise of significant investment to help SMBs capitalise on the NBN. Budding entrepreneurs and start-ups will benefit from a new funding pool while SMBs will have access to extra financial support for innovation.

With lots of hype around the 2013 budget and the end of the financial year looming, it’s timely to start thinking about budgeting for your own business.

The Best Of Times…The Age Of Wisdom

Posted by Anthony Toope May 30, 2012 at 12:34 AM

 

‘It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness...’ Surely, Charles Dickens in A Tale of Two Cities was not talking about the printer market, or was he?

Best of times......this is true for our business customers as printers and multifunction printers (MFPs) have never been more affordable. Price erosion in the last year has averaged 15 per cent. In fact in New Zealand the mono MFP segment hit a 31 per cent price decline. Just like the low prices we see for LCD TVs and computers, printers and MFDs represent tremendous value. A high speed 23ppm copy print scan fax colour machine can be easily picked up for under $1000 – a massive price reduction compared to only a couple of years ago!

The age of wisdom.....price erosion places enormous pressure on vendors as we work to improve production efficiencies and reduce costs. At Fuji Xerox Printers our approach is to embrace the change, creating a connection between our channel partners and their end customers and rapidly driving new products into mid market. This is a positive opportunity for our partners and our customers and can drive significant growth in mid to high end segments. In fact, forecasts for the coming year predict the value segment to grow between 20 per cent and 120 per cent.
