For many organizations, office printing is one of the top expense categories — yet many companies pay little attention to this ongoing expense. When asked, they usually underestimate how much they’re actually spending on print each year. We’ve found the annual cost of printing is typically about $1,000 per employee, after factoring in paper, toner, equipment repairs, and recycling.
Companies in print-intensive sectors like finance and healthcare know that this figure can be much higher. For organizations that have yet to analyze and reduce these often unnecessary expenses, every day that goes by without a print management strategy represents more wasted money. Inaction has a cost.
Today, it’s easy for companies to get started. With cloud-based print management technology, organizations can quickly gain insights into how print happens across their workforce. By revealing all print devices deployed across an enterprise and tracking all the documents submitted to those devices, company leaders can easily identify cost outliers and take informed action to help reduce those costs.
