When we can’t print our reports, invoices and presentations it means the difference between winning new business or bringing cash into the bank. But an ineffectual device can impact your business in other ways. So how do you know when to replace your multifunction device? 1.Your print costs are higher than they should be.

Using Print Management reporting and analysis to cut costs

For the majority of SMBs, office printing is an integral business function with costs that can quickly spiral out of hand.

How to reduce your company’s costs with big data

Employing the use of big data in the workplace enables companies to boost productivity while maximising cost savings. Understanding trends can help to reduce output costs that stem from unnecessary printing wastage.
