Office printing is on the rise. On average, office workers are printing around an additional 10% each year. With the average office worker already printing a staggering 10,000 pages per year, this number is only going to continue to rise. Businesses are trying to find ways to cut printing and costs at the same time. Luckily, there are a number of ways to find out where excess printing is taking place and then cut it down.
1. Print Audit – By conducting a print audit in your business, you will find out exactly where printing is taking place in your office. You will receive a report that breaks down printing by department, down to the individual user.
2. Inform Your Employees – It is often the case that employees don’t even consider the amount they are printing. Usually it is just a few pages here and there, which adds up quickly over the coarse of the year. Let your employees know how much they print over the time of the audit, and this can encourage a decrease in printing.
3. Consolidate Equipment – Making the switch from desktop printers to multifunction devices can encourage decreased printing.
4. Monitor – Continued monitoring and reporting will encourage a more intelligent printing environment in your office. This will help save a significant amount of money in the long run.
