When trimming budgets, your business’ office equipment is probably not a consideration. But makeovers in your print department are full of cost savings. Try implementing these simple steps to watch your printing costs slim down.
- Establish a Print Policy. It doesn’t have to be long and complicated. If you make rules like “always print two-sided” or “always print in black and white” you will notice costs reducing.
- Reset Printer Defaults. This step is easy but can produce huge results. You can establish rules that will be forgotten, but setting the default settings takes it to a whole new level. With default settings, you can set up your printer to always print in black and white, thus saving on expensive color toner.
- Use Managed Print Services. A managed print program is the bridge between you and your print goals. They will help you assess and analyze where you are with your goals and give you firm direction on where to go next.
- Use Black and White Devices. Don’t be afraid to use copiers that will aid your cost savings by skipping color costs altogether. Some printers may look like they are printing in black and white, but they are using color — it just LOOKS black and white.
These four steps will help you gain control of your copiers and printers and save on printing costs. You will be able to cut waste, use less paper and toner, and save money.
