As you are updating technology in your office, you might be overlooking one critical component: your printers.
Printing environments are often neglected, and they can be money pits too. The majority of businesses likely don't even know how much they spend on printing. This neglect leads to waste -- of money, of time, and of paper products.

Ideally, business solutions impact the entire organizations, but that's not always the case. Certain additions may make for a more attractive bottom line, but employees may not be affected by that boost. Office solutions meant to make things better for workers might not influence budget. Shiny office equipment could streamline some processes, but IT staff have to learn new technology and spend more time training staff, fixing things, or maintaining devices.

For many of today's businesses, printing is one area that isn't dealt with. Printing can be a drain on your budget, and it can take time and energy to get it under control. This is unfortunate, as most businesses spend anywhere from 1-3% of revenue on print-related expenses, and often companies don't even know how much they are spending. If printing is something you want to tackle in your business, you don't have to go it alone. Managed print services can help.

Managed Print Services is a growing trend in business that boasts printer optimization and increased efficiency. Managed print services manages your printer fleet and lets you take a comprehensive look at your print environment.
There are multiple benefits that accompany managed print services. Here are just a few of them.
When it comes to auditing a company’s expenses, printing is considered the final frontier. 90% of companies actually have no idea how much they spend on their printing processes. This tendency becomes especially surprising—and troubling—when you consider that 15 million pages are printed every five minutes in America, a good percentage of which is never used by its producers.
As we explained on our Managed Print Services overview page, excessive or unmonitored printing can be a significant drain on a company’s income. It can consume as much as 3% of your annual revenue. On average, an office worker prints 34 pages each day, about 1/6 of which is just waste. To make matters worse, annual paper usage by companies has gone up by as much as 21% each year. This means that, if left unchecked, printer waste and expenses will go up as well.
