Most people enter a new year looking to make improvements, whether they want to lose weight, save money, or spend more time with friends – why should your business be any different? Like most businesses, you can probably improve efficiency in your office or save money by making a few small changes – you can even save the environment in the process!
Save Money on Your Printing
Every business has to be concerned about the bottom line – improving office efficiency typically reduces unnecessary waste and costs. There are a number of ways that you can reduce your printing costs and ensure that you have a more affluent 2017:
- Use a print management solution: print management allows you to set processes that reduce your wastage – you can set up your system so that print jobs are only released when someone is there to pick them up, for example, which means that you do not waste money on unnecessary printing.
- Update your defaults: set all of your printing defaults to mono and double sided to avoid wasting toner and paper.
- Review your print set up to see whether you could rearrange your printers or lease agreement to reduce your monthly costs.
Stop Wasting Time on Your Printer
If your team are spending a lot of time manually scanning, collating, saving into the appropriate folder, or even sorting print jobs out, you need to assess your equipment and print management. Modern printers have a huge range of options that allow you to scan directly into the appropriate folder, scan into an email attachment, and even fold or staple brochures if you print your marketing in-house.
Be a Little Greener in 2017
Every saving – whether in paper, toner, or electricity – helps to reduce your environmental impact. By saving money, you can also save the environment.
