Your Challenges

Knowing your cost to print and copy is the first step to controlling it. You know how much your travel budget is and how to control it, and the same should apply to your copy and print costs. It's critical to know where the money is spent today so you can control the costs in the future.

Key Challenges

  • Wasting resources due to ineffective printing and copying
  • Knowledge about your current cost of document management
  • Awareness of how much you spend on printing
  • Using color where it's not needed
  • Optimizing the use of your existing devices
  • Recovering cost wherever possible (Client Billing or Academic)
  • Increasing productivity by printing at the most appropriate device
  • Minimizing cost with rules-based printing, such as auto delete of duplicates
  • Security so jobs only are released and picked up by the owner
