In a pandemic-stricken marketplace like the one we’re currently in, businesses of all sizes are finding themselves having to do more with less. While that philosophy has always been the cornerstone of efficiency and productivity in the workplace, never before has it been as vital to the health and lifeline of a business as it is now. And for the average small-to-medium sized business, one of the most overlooked areas of opportunity to increase productivity is in the area of print management.
So many small businesses start out as small “mom-and-pop” ventures out of necessity, but never move past the “mom-and-pop” mentality when it comes to the way they handle their documents and printing needs, even though the business has grown exponentially in that time. Sure, the business has gotten bigger, but the way they conduct their business will eventually limit their ability to grow much further past that. When these businesses follow the same procedures for such a long time, not only is it difficult to determine what processes need to change, but how to go about implementing the change, as well.
That’s why print management is as important as it is in today’s business landscape. But most of those small-to-medium sized businesses don’t have anybody solely dedicated to print management. So much more than just ordering ink and keeping the printers and copiers going, print management also entails keeping print maintenance and supply costs down by developing new processes and eliminating wasted product and dollars.
A Partner in Productivity
Professional print management begins by partnering with a professional print management company to evaluate your needs. First, they will assess what and how you print in order to identify what hardware and workflow processes can be implemented in order to best suit your needs. For example, how much time have you spent searching for a document, just so you could waste ink, paper, and time making copies of it, rather than scanning that document once and making it available to anybody you choose to have access to it via the cloud? How many documents do you use in an average transaction? Could you use less? A professional print management company will help you answer these questions and many more in order to help you become more productive. Furthermore, they will service you appropriately with ongoing supplies and maintenance to make sure you have just what you need and aren’t overstocking more than what you need at any given moment. Finally, they can also offer follow-up evaluations to track usage and expenses to make sure you stay in line with your budget.
