Printer Experts have been helping customers find the right printer for nearly two decades. Over this time we’ve seen a lot of changes and advances in printer manufacturing.
Despite so much change, there are a number of questions we’re consistently asked and have been from day one: “How can we reduce our printing costs?” is, without doubt the most commonly asked question!
We spoke to some of the team’s most experienced printer advisors to help put to paper some of the best ways on how to reduce printing costs. We’ve taken one piece of advice from 5 different advisors:
1. Joe: Do your Home Work
2. Shaileigh: Minimise Staff Wastage
3. Pawel: Reduce Paper Usage
It sounds simple and it is. Paper is a significant part of your overall printing costs. Printing with a duplex printer onto both sides of the paper instantly halves your paper usage.
4. Emma: Get High!
Don’t worry, I’m not asking you to climb a mountain or partake in any illegal activities. I recommend getting a printer that can load high capacity or high yield toners. While High Cap toners are initially more expensive they can reduce a printer’s ‘cost per print’ by up to 50%!
5. James: Get a Grip with Managed Print
Managed Print is one of the fastest growing printer solutions in the UK. Businesses, education establishments and other public sector organisations are all starting to recognise the benefits that come with managed print.
With this solution you are guaranteed the lowest cost per print and the best print environment for your needs. With TCO (Total Cost of Ownership) leading the design model, the aim is reduce costs significantly whilst improving and streamlining print workflow. The fixed cost per print includes all toners, supplies and service.
The fixed price agreed is based on an assessment of your printing requirements and for most businesses and organisations it is the most dramatic way to reduce printing costs.
