Advancements in Managed Print Services

 Over the last 10 years, many new tools have come to market that offer advantages to both office equipment dealers and their customers. Office equipment dealers have worked diligently to collect and manage the data from collection tools developed by companies such as Print Fleet, PrintAudit and FMAudit.

Improve the Security of Your Data!

There is a security threat lurking in your business right now and you may not even be aware of it. Your office copiers and multifunction printing devices have the ability to scan and store documents so they can be retrieved down the road without need for the original document.

Managed Print Services, A Basic Rundown

 Most organisations underestimate the total cost of print production by as much as 50%. According to a recent Gartner Group study, organisations can spend as much as 3% of their total annual revenue on document output.

The real challenge is that most organisations do not understand how to measure or manage these costs.

Do Inkjet Cartridges Really Need Replaced?

Everyone has had that home printer that seems to miraculously run out of ink every other month even though you rarely use it. While this doesn't apply quite as fittingly to large scale office printers, smaller or home printers are affected by this continually. It can be difficult to tell how much ink you actually have left in the cartridges and how much you need to finish a printing job. It may seem like you just replaced the cartridge and somehow you are getting warnings flashing when you print something that cartridge ink is low.
