Understanding the Cost of Printing
The cost of printing is more than just the cost of ink or toner. It also includes maintenance and service on hardware, updates and patches to software, and then the cost of paper and ink.
When there’s a budget shortfall, many organizations opt to keep outdated hardware or purchase cheaper equipment to try and stay within budget parameters.
However, while it may seem inexpensive at first, cheaper equipment often ends up not only costing more in the long run, but also contributes to staff and patient frustration due to increased downtime from equipment malfunction.
After an assessment of current print costs and needs, a custom-designed Managed Print program coupled with Managed Network Services can greatly reduce costs while maintaining a high level of productivity.
