Do you know how much you are spending on print? If you don’t have a print policy in place, or you’re not working with a Managed Print Services provider there’s a good chance you’re spending more than you think. Today, profitability depends on print cost visibility and controlling your expenses. The avoidable waste and unnecessary costs associated with printing could be costing you big!

Here are some statistics to get you thinking about what you’re actually spending on your print environment.

  • 90% of businesses have no idea what their actual print costs are, or even how many printers are deployed: Do you? This statistic courtesy of the Gartner Group is true across all industries and business sizes. Failing to monitor your print environment can be a waste of valuable and expensive resources. Toner, paper, maintenance and service costs add up. Failure to keep track of not only costs, but supplies and maintenance can result in lost productivity that costs you even more!
  • The typical office worker prints over 10,000 pages per year at a cost of more than $725: Do you have usage restrictions in place, or can anyone print anything, anytime? With no controls in place your costs can quickly get out of line. Implementing controls can save you money right away.
  • Print related IT calls take 40 to 60% of your IT staff’s time: Is your IT team busy fielding print related issues instead of handling core tasks? Wasting IT time on print related problems is costly.
  • Print is the third highest expense, right behind rent and payroll: The average business spends between 5 and 15% of annual revenue on print related expenses. Implementing a print management system can make sure devices, supplies and users are all operating a peak efficiency.

Do any of these statistics resonate with you? Without proper print oversight you’re probably spend a lot more than you need to be. A Managed Print Services provider can help you to reduce your print costs anywhere from 10 to 30% almost immediately.
