One of the most effective ways offices can reduce overhead spending is by printing less. In most business environments, employees have little or no incentive to avoid printing documents and will collectively push office print resources to their limits.
But employees still need to process documents, and in many cases, those processes rely on printing and copying as an ad hoc solution for document retrieval, transmission, and archival. When scaled to meet the workflow needs of an entire organization, print consumption quickly rises to become a major, largely preventable office cost.
Only rent and payroll drain more company resources on a monthly basis. However, the majority of print consumption costs don’t actually add value to business processes.
