What is your office’s printer story? If you are like too many offices out there, someone started filling needs for printers without a strategy, which led to multiple brands and a variety of functionality spread throughout the office. Some printers have lines of employees waiting for them. Others fall into disrepair for lack of use or completely break down before the cupboard full of toner for that one machine has even been used.
A Print Environment Strategy
In color or black and white, laser printers provide cost-effective and high-quality output for every office need. But not every office needs one. Having personal printers on every employee’s desk isn’t scalable and can end up costing you more in the long run. The right print strategy requires evaluating volume and quality needs, as well as device placement and a plan for maintenance. It sounds like a lot to think about, but a little planning ahead can save a lot of headaches later.
