In an effort to understand how we can improve office efficiency with our printing technology we recently conducted an online survey with CoreData and 1,000 SMEs to learn more about the office habits, needs and frustrations.

Introducing Compact, Affordable, Quality A3 Colour Printing for Small Business

Posted by Glenn Gibson June 19, 2014 at 1:12 PM

Many small business owners will agree a high quality in-house colour printer makes it much easier to produce colour documents quickly and conveniently, but the cost and size of these printers can often be a hindrance.

We understand that small businesses need compact and affordable print solutions to enable them to produce high quality colour documents. As I explained last week, eye-catching colour sales and marketing collateral can give you a competitive edge when it comes to attracting customers and engaging staff.

With this in mind, we recently launched the DocuCentre SC2020, an A3 colour multifunction printer developed especially to meet the needs of small business.

IT A Top Gripe For Australian Office Workers

Posted by Michelle Rochford December 19, 2013 at 1:42 AM

 

It seems our frustrations with IT are alive and well. Fuji Xerox Printers recently surveyed 1,000 business managers and office employees about their pet peeves and IT came out on top for one third of respondents. Think email, Microsoft Office, office equipment and internet outages.

As far as printer-specific issues go, one in five respondents are specifically frustrated with having to troubleshoot errors, which can waste precious work time.

Office workers are irritated by simple tasks such as replacing toner, loading paper and paper jams. Thirteen per cent are unhappy about the distance from their desk to the printer.

IT issues and frustrations can be costly and time consuming for a business. If you’re a business manager, it may be time consider how you can improve printing and IT processes to reduce the time and money spent on resolving issues.

As a business manager, improving the efficiency of printing and IT processes can target your number one frustration: cost and budgeting. Our research found that for 38 per cent of business managers, costs and budgeting are a major worry and one in four are concerned about staff productivity.

A managed print services (MPS) contract, which outsources the management of your printing fleet to a third party, can help to streamline printing and reduce costs.

Signing up to a managed print services contract can result in a 30 per cent reduction in print related costs. Furthermore, with staff no longer having to deal with printer issues, it also allows for improvements in staff productivity.

Cutting The Ties: The Wireless Printing Movement

Posted by Thomas Dickson December 5, 2013 at 9:39 PM

 

In today’s mobile world the internet is a significant part of everyday life, both at home and at work. The way we use and access the internet has changed dramatically over the last 20 years; move over dial-up connections, now we’re talking Wi-Fi and 4G.

As a nation we’re addicted to electronic devices and the internet. Can you remember the last time you went an entire weekend without browsing the web? I certainly can’t.

The number of electronic devices in the average Australian household is growing. Whether it’s PCs, laptops, smartphones, tablets or printers; we’re a gadget loving gang. In fact, according to a recent survey carried out by Fuji Xerox Printers, by the end of the year 86 per cent of Australians predict they will have at least one device connected to the Wi-Fi in their homes and over 20 per cent will connect more than five devices. That’s a lot of technology!

Xerox Celebrates 75th Anniversary Of The First Xerographic Image

Posted by Anthony Toope November 8, 2013 at 1:30 AM

Printing is something we take for granted. We have an expectation that, at the press of a button, data will be transmitted to a device and printed quickly and cost effectively.

I doubt many have ever stopped to think about how printing and document management processes have developed over the years. In today’s busy world, it’s easy to shove history aside and focus on the here and now.

However, on hearing that Xerox has just celebrated the 75th anniversary of the first xerographic image, I did stop to consider just how far our industry has progressed.

It all started on 22 October 1938, when the world’s first xerographic image was created by Chester Carlson in a rented second story room in Queens, New York. The copy was a date and location, written in a bold hand on a glass slide: 10-22-38 Astoria. The copy might have been fuzzy, but it was still a copy.

Carlson originally called the process electrophotography. This humble invention would eventually lead to the formation of the Xerox Corporation and the birth of an industry. Even today, this xerographic process is still at the heart of most office printers and copiers around the world

While the technological developments have been incredible, it is fascinating to reflect on the passion, persuasion and perseverance of a few individuals in bringing their vision to life.
