How far do you know?

Equipment Cost

Do you know how much exactly it cost for a printers/copier at your company? Are you paying at the right scheme? Does the scheme suits your operating pattern?

They have no idea on how much is the market price for a copier, they have no idea on whether are they paying the market value for the competitive copy charges, they have no idea on what’s worth for an renewal? What’s the behind scene in photocopier industry. Do I go for branded? Do I go for Services? Do I go for lowest offer? Who can i trust? 

If you looking for a trustworthy vendor to work with to find out the answers, possibly you should talk to us to find out your current situations with no obligations attach. Perhaps you are already spending way too much higher compare to the others now.  

 

Running Cost

Some businesses owner always having an illusion of by having a small printer at their SOHO office, will help them to save more on running cost because they may print less. Whereas, some larger size company may also have this problems for some of their department too. However, if you understand how printer industries are getting their revenue from you, you may then possibly think otherwise.

Most of the printing industry are earning their revenue through their own consumable, A $99 worth of printer may seems affordable, but what you have to endure will be its consumable -Toners and Cartridges. According to business history, a normal market printers usually required buyers to purchase 1 or 2 sets of spare toners just in case, and they usually change their models rapidly to keep generating revenue within the industry practice. Therefore, business owners will have to cater an extra cost for consumables, and prepare the printers will be end-of-life one day, or seek alternative to go for compatible ink shop in order to lower their running cost.

 

Maintenance Cost

It is hard to get into a smooth operation while your current printing devices are going malfunction during your busy day, or in between the time when you need to print. Company whom getting less support for their business equipment mainly due to lacking service support from their own vendor. It is very hard for customer to determine  and understand on why some of the companies are getting bad services even from a particular famous vendor too.

Despite the fact we all know that, service level and its revenue are always in an equal sign in printing industry, possibly it may be also a trade secret to an individual salesperson whom did not even mention to your when the time of your purchase.

In order to ease the misunderstanding between customers and vendors, we are here to share with you on what you should take note during the time of purchase, what are the things you should be looking into while getting a new or renewal package offer from your existing vendors.

THE MOST RELIABLE 

PRINTING TECHNOLOGY EVER

Focusing on Quality, Reliability and Affordability 

Running a more eco-friendly office and cutting material costs are growing priorities for many businesses, often fuelled by the holy grail of the paperless workplace. While cutting out paper completely is unrealistic for most, cutting printing costs significantly needn’t be. This being so, here are 24 ways you can reduce your printing costs.

Cut consumables

Printer ink is famously more expensive than vintage champagne (although it lasts longer) and the cost of other printing consumables can add up too. So, a good place to start with your printing cuts is looking at how you buy and use these resources.

  • Buy in bulk. The idea of buying in bulk isn’t a novelty in business – it saves on per-unit costs and reduces waste with less packaging.
  • Efficient toner. For optimum efficiency, invest in printers that use high-yield inks or toners. For example, some boasts toner cartridges that yield up to 35,000 pages.
  • Restrict colour. By printing in greyscale you’ll reduce wasting that precious colour ink and toner (when you don’t need it) and cut costs.
  • Save toner. You can save up to 40% of your toner simply by using saving modes such as toner’s Save Mode. This saving will not only save you money, but will also mean your toner lasts longer.
  • Use draft mode as default. Let’s face it, not everything you print needs to be the best quality. High quality prints use more ink, so unless you need top-notch output, stick to the lower-quality draft mode as your default setting.

Save paper

Cutting paper out altogether may not be an option, but reducing paper-use is. Changing some basic printing habits could result in big savings on paper.

  • Print duplex. Use double-sided printing and cut paper-use in half instantly. Some printers may require you to physically turn your paper and others may not support duplex printing at all, so be sure to invest in printers with this feature built-in.
  • Avoid blank pages. Embracing your printer’s eco settings could significantly cut waste. For example, your printer will automatically stop printing any blank pages you send to the printer.
  • More pages, less paper. Another feature such as N-up printing/or combine printing functions, which will print two (or more) digital pages onto one physical page. You can print as many pages as are legible onto a single page, which could result in real savings. For documents with lots of white space, such as presentations, you can save a lot of paper this way. If your printer doesn’t have this as a built-in setting, you can configure it yourself.
  • Print preview and shrink to fit. Using print preview is an excellent way to monitor exactly what you’re printing and decide if you really need it at all. With shrink to fit, if you really must have all 50 pages of that report printed out, you can reduce the final printed result by a page or two at least.
  • Experiment with fonts. When it comes to printing, it turns out there is a right font; printer.com has proven it. Apparently Century Gothic is the most print-efficient font with a 31 percent saving. If Century Gothic isn’t your style, Ecofont and Times Roman also scored well.
  • Text only. When printing webpages there’s a lot of opportunity for waste, with adverts, sidebars and the like. Avoid this by printing the text only, with a printable version. Many web articles offer links for this, but you can also use websites like printwhatyoulike.com who will make one for you.

Device choice

One of the most effective ways to ensure long-term cost-effective printing is to buy and run cost-effective machines.

  • Go laser. Laser printers are generally cheaper to run than inkjet printers. Although upfront, they may cost more, the cost-per-page drops quickly with use, making them, ultimately, the more economical option.
  • Think cost-per-page. With that point in mind, with printers having potentially high ongoing costs, buying printers based on the cost per page, as opposed to the upfront cost, is the best way to ensure you’re getting a good deal in the long run.
  • Pull printing. A great way to reduce paper and ink waste in the office is to stop people printing things that they never retrieve. With pull printing users must release the print job at the printer using a login – normally a passcode or key-card – before it prints. 
  • Save energy. The cost of powering printers can become expensive, so an easy way to ensure optimum cost-efficiency is to invest in a printer with low power consumption.
  • Cut the need for experts. Many print problems shouldn’t require an engineer and those that do shouldn’t call for a brand expert – yet this is often an ongoing cost for printer maintenance. Printer manufacturers are now taking steps to eliminate this inefficiency. Some Mobile Print app, for example, allows users or engineers to fix print errors with their own mobile devices. A simple tap of the device on the printer will provide video clips to guide the user through the error and its solution, saving time and money.

Business practice

Eco-friendly and cost-efficient printing is more about user habit than anything else, so for maximum savings consider how you can incorporate these agendas into the way the office operates.

  • Monitor usage. Features like Eco Mode’s Results Simulator mean that offices now have access to easy paper usage tracking, but also data about energy and C02. This way you can measure your efficiency and act accordingly.
  • Track savings. For material costs you can use printing expense tracking and reporting through services like usage tracking, which will tell you how much money you’re saving. You can also outsource these services with providers like papercut, follow-me, Green Print that offer users printer savings reports.
  • Set quotas. If you want to draw a hard line to cut printer-use, you can set limits with services like Paper Cut. Users are allocated a monetary allowance for printing, which they can use how they see fit. Not only does this guarantee you’ll cut printing back to the amount you want, but it’ll also force colleagues to be more mindful about what they are printing.
  • Set defaults and share them. Many ink, toner and paper saving tips can be set as print defaults, which can be rolled out to entire departments or even offices. This sounds great until you think of the time and effort it will take to change everyone’s settings – and what if they work from their own device? 

Digitise

With the increasing presence of portable technology, one of the obvious ways to cut printing is to embrace the digital copy and prevent printing altogether. There are a few ways you can do this.

  • Bring your own device (BYOD). Often what we print is just as easily accessed and digested on smartphone and tablet screens, for example maps, PDFs, word documents etc, so encouraging employees to BYOD could encourage them to print less. Personal device use needn’t affect the use of printers if required though. 
  • Print to PDF. For those times when you know you won’t have web access to read that report online, a good solution is print to PDF. Rather than printing a hard-copy this will provide you with a digital offline version of the webpage to read on your personal device whenever you like.
  • Scan and digitise. Rather than photocopying, why not try to keep all future copies digitally instead? Even with documents that need signing, there are several apps available for mobile devices that mean this can be done digitally. 
  • Just print less. Perhaps the secret to saving money on printing is to just not print. Encourage yourself and others to be responsible and mindful with printing, whether for cost-saving purposes or ecological consciousness. You may find this could yield the best results of all.
