Making your business environmentally sustainable is good for you and your customers, as well as for the planet — and managed print can help you to achieve this by positively impacting on your energy resources, use of materials and the wider environment.
A managed print service is an all-inclusive package to obtain the print equipment best-suited to your business needs, ensuring optimal workflow processes while significantly reducing the volume of consumables (paper, inks and toner) as well as energy.
Many companies struggle to manage a diverse array of print devices. These can include printers, scanners and copiers, as well as Multi-Function Printers (MFPs) which can provide all of these functions in one device that also has an e-mailing capability. The costs and servicing of these different devices can be difficult to manage and can also deplete an organisation's IT resources.
The ratio of devices to employees can be high and a managed print service means rationalising the print environment to achieve efficiencies across a range of resources.
Managed print services streamline the entire print fleet, its consumables and servicing to allow transparency of cost control, enhance utilisation of all hardware and improve your company's green credentials.
As well as improved efficiencies and enhanced print output, managed print services signify a real commitment on your company's part to environmental sustainability.
Our planet's dwindling natural resources frequently make headline news and many potential customers will look for a company for whom green credentials and sustainability are much more than buzz words: they're a business objective.
A managed print service will significantly reduce your company's environmental footprint. Low- and energy-efficient printing devices will reduce consumption (and wastage) in many areas including paper, ink and toner cartridges. From a pollution perspective, many of these used cartridges are non-biodegradable and unfortunately still sent to landfill, where they can take hundreds of years to finally decompose.
The ongoing monitoring and future-proofing of your company's print infrastructure will enhance your company's green credentials. Not only will managed print consistently deliver transparency and cost savings to your business, it will reduce your energy consumption and make a tangible contribution to the issue of environmental sustainability.
